After having lived with a marine blue and bright green kitchen before the renovations, Jules wanted a different color palette. “I knew I wanted to go with driftwood neutrals and then bring in color with accessories — navy blue, turquoise and some pops of coral,” she says. This bar area lets her do just that. The glass-front cabinets display colorful glasses and keep the open feeling. The countertop is the perfect spot to set up a bar when entertaining. An important part of both renovations was carving out a mudroom, something many houses this age lack. “We used to trip over shoes we’d kicked off by the door and dump things on the table all the time,” Jules says. Now the lower baskets corral all the flip-flops, and the upper baskets hold phones for charging (she installed plugs here for that purpose). Cubbies equipped with hooks and baskets keep beach towels, shoes, sunscreen, hats and bags organized next to the door. The painting here, by local artist Theresa Losa, has special meaning. “For years after Hurricane Sandy, everyone was still recovering and felt isolated. Then there was a big local gallery event that was the first big artistic happening since the hurricane,” Jules says. “Over 500 people turned out. It was a feel-good moment that brought the community together and made us feel like everything was going to be OK.” The family picked up the painting at the event.
