Beach Bungalow Makeover -Country Livings House of the Year 2013

Every year Country Living chooses a designer to design and decorate a house. This year they brought back a beach bungalow out on Breezy Point in Queens, New York, that was ravaged by Hurricane Sandy.

It's a wonderful breezy beach bungalow. The water damage from the storm had ruined pretty much everything -walls, floors, furniture. The home was down to the studs. So this is a beach bungalow makeover from scratch.

Chosen designer for the project, quirky and colorful Emily Henderson from HGTV.

Emily's goal was to create a really bright, airy, beachy, happy, and casual home, with some antiques to give it a soul. And it is all that and more! I love the dark wood flooring. It creates great contrast and grounds the place. And if you have exposed beams like that, why not hang some funky Rope lamps.
