The PassageBeach Style Family Room, Boston
Before Siemasko + Verbridge got their hands on this house, it was a convoluted maze of small rooms and skinny hallways. The renovation made sense of the layout, and took full advantage of the captivating ocean views. The result is a harmonious blend of contemporary style with classic and sophisticated elements. The “empty nest” home is transformed into a welcoming sanctuary for the extended family of kids and grandkids.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
8. Create a library corner in any room with a round table. Tall bookcases are a welcome addition, of course, but a round table piled with heavy tomes can also stand alone as a mini library. Lean art on the wall or windowsill nearby to add another layer of interest. If you do have a tall bookcase, try pushing a demilune or long, narrow console table right up against it and stack more books on top.
Upstairs on the main bedroom floor, the wife has her own library. All of the built-in shelves were part of the renovation and now house all the childrens' and young adult books. "Of course with her background as a children's librarian, she has all of these books logically organized," says Verbridge.Table: BDDW
