Cape Cod-based architect Sheila Narusawa recently remodeled a family house in Orleans, Massachusetts (to read the full account, go to Design Skool). We especially admire the upstairs bath, which features custom built shelving by Jonathan Blake (508-457-1540) of Falmouth-based Hampton & Blake. To achieve a similar understated New England look, consider the following elements:
