Designer Lisa Tharp Brings A Salt Marsh Colonial to Life

Designer Lisa Tharp Brings A Salt Marsh Colonial to Life

Hi Friends,

Lisa Tharp captured the beauty of a Salt Marsh in this renovated salt box colonial. If you have a chance, on her website she shared a video of the renovation. When I was in high school my family moved to Florida for a few years, and when we finally decided to move back home to Duxbury, Massachusetts, and as we approached the turn off, I saw a sight that made me realize that I was home.. I can’t explain the beauty of the North River Marsh, but it is a sight that brings peace of mind…kind of like the song “easy like Sunday Morning”….home.

This simple saltbox home is sensitively renovated and expanded to host gatherings with family and friends. Lisa's interior architectural plan maximizes light and views while deriving space efficiency and materials inspiration from New England boat-building traditions. Vaulted-ceiling additions include Kitchen, Dining Room, Master Bedroom and Screen Porch, which add spaciousness to cozy original rooms. I hope you love this beach pretty house as much as I do.

xx,

Beach Pretty

Kitchen countertops are crafted from teak + holly boat decking and modern Neolith. Furniture-style cabinetry hide all appliances, save the La Cornue range.











Something so Pretty about a White Porch…and to make this Porch even Prettier are the Comfy Pillows and a Bouquet of Lilacs :)


A 10' apothecary chest anchors the dressing hall leading to the master bedroom.



Formerly the garage, the new Master Suite includes sitting area, dressing hall and bath.
The custom Mariner canopy bed, from Lisa Tharp Collection, evokes large dock cleats.



Reclaimed windows were repurposed into massive sliding doors.




Lisa reworked the master bath layout to create connected indoor/outdoor showers — the ultimate luxury for communing with nature.
Waterproof plaster clads the shower. Coney Island boardwalk planks have new life as vanity countertops and shower floors.





A mid-century wicker settee joins Mariner club chairs in the children's loft.
Vintage book pages line the daybed alcove wall.




Guest Bedroom is all textures, wrapped in navy grasscloth. Floor tile in the Children's Bath mimics a striped beach blanket.
