House tour: Seaside chic style

A show-stopping antique bench brings an air of eccentricity to the front hallway. "This is one of the first pieces my husband and I bought after we were married," says Michele. "It's made of wood salvaged from a church organ and pew. Twenty-two years later, we still love it! Our dog, Oliver, often sleeps here during the day while waiting for us to come home."

Michele's favourite place in the house, the living room, features a wood-burning fireplace flanked by custom built-in shelving. "This is a room for sitting, relaxing and reading, and there's usually one teenager and/or the dog sprawled on the sofa," she says. The sofa is fitted with a striped linen slipcover for easy cleaning. Drapes and accessories in subtle shades of blue feel like a fresh seaside breeze in the otherwise neutral space.
