Designers wanted to create a traditional, shingle style summer home for the family in Jamestown, Rhode Island. Since the home sits on a rectangular, corner lot, they needed to address both sides of the street, so they added an oversized porch to the front of the home as a nod to the summer cottages that dotted the coastline at the turn of the century. To address the other side of the street, a smaller garage was built. This space adds storage to the home as well as adds a pleasant aesthetic to the home.
With large columns and painted siding, this idyllic farmhouse in Touisset Point, R.I. brings country charm to New England. Countless windows extend across the exterior to allow for plenty of natural light and views of the ocean.
Designers wanted to help keep the homeowners organized, so they designed a beach themed mudroom. The space has storage for shoes and beach bags, as well as racks for towels and swim suits so that all of the sand and water from a trip to the beach stays in this space instead of getting tracked through the rest of the house.
This beautiful stone residence is found in the waterfront region of Rhode Island's Rumstick Point. With five bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms and over four acres of land, it has a little something for everyone.

For the front porch of her new Rhode Island home, blogger Alison Vinciguerra of the blog Long Distance Loving used a wreath from The Home Depot that was pre-decorated with pinecones, holly leaves, gold feathers and fruit. She wove in white LED twinkle lights into the wreath and garland near a vintage-looking lantern.
Designers wanted to update the design of this Rhode Island beach home, so they created an open concept living space between the kitchen, dining room and living room. The open concept design enhances the entertainment aspect of the home and increases the flow and functionality between these spaces while allowing for a continuous design throughout the elegant beach cottage.
