In a waterfront property on the far eastern edge of Shelter Island, N.Y., architect Jack Wettling used a palette of crisp white accented with sea blue to create a relaxing master bathroom. “The colors draw in the views from the picturesque Coecles Harbor,” he says. A judicious use of high-end stone — in the marble tub surround and a narrow marble border on the wall — lends a luxe look without breaking the bank.

Open archways create lovely shape in the design, and potted trees decorate the columns. Plants border the deck adding natural color and light.

As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, the primary challenge for Kevin & Celine's family home was maintaining a balance between the heritage of the house and incorporating a modern design. Designer Jillian Harris bridged the border between modern and historical by choosing a modern version of tile for the backsplash, which is traditionally black and white. The Caesar Stone counter tops are a quartz composite. The cabinets were built to store Celine's many cooking pots.
