Ready for a Party
There’s no doubt a beach house draws a crowd. Prepare for an influx of friends and family by doubling your tables―one for
inside, one for outside. Connect the two spaces with a glass garage-style door or a pair of French doors. On fair-weather
days, your party guests can easily mix and mingle.
Use vintage or reproduction lighting to lend a sense of history to a new space. If you find an antique fixture at a flea market, take it to a lighting store and have it rewired. For new fixtures that look old, shop at circalighting.com and rejuvenation.com.
