Designs for Living


Louise Hurlbutt and Ilyse Sandler’s clients wanted their home to be a comfortable, family-oriented, and casual retreat from their busy lives.

Working alongside Spang Builders and Winkelman Architecture, Hurlbutt Designs transformed an outdated ranch into an updated beachside haven. Transom windows were added above French doors, and the roof was raised to accommodate a cathedral ceiling and beams. This opened up the plan in the kitchen, dining room, and living room to focus on the views of the ocean and beach at Pine Point overlooking Prout’s Neck. “These views were the inspiration for the sky blue and sea-grass green palette in fabrics, furniture, and the sisal rug,” says Hurlbutt. “We chose nautical accessories to enhance the look by selecting sea-glass-green orb lamps in the living room, chart wallpaper in the powder room, and brass cabin lights in the bunk room.” Centered in the living room is a grand custom beach-stone fireplace by Brian Fairfield, which sets the tone for the cottage.
