As I write, my kids are packing for our trip to my mother’s beach house in Fenwick Island, Del. So obviously, I’ve got beach on the brain. That’s why I thought of this highly unusual beach-house renovation in Bethany Beach, just north of Fenwick. It’s the work of Ilex Construction, Brooke Steuart Interiors, and Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath (who did the house’s kitchen and master bath), for owners whose primary residence is in Potomac.
Enjoy these befores and afters, and have a great weekend. You probably won’t see me again until Tuesday or Wednesday. No computers for a few days — only sand and (hopefully) sun!

And the memorable After:
Upstairs, the master bedroom is a vision in lavender — whether or not you like lavender!
I don’t normally equate beach style with Art Deco like you see in this master bath, but it’s already clear that these owners aren’t going for the stereotypical beach look.

And the dramatic renovation:
Have a great holiday weekend, folks.
