On Saturday I had the opportunity to attend the Coastal Living Idea House designed by my favorite designer, Mark Sikes. You couldn't get more of a summer beach house feel than in the quintessential New England town of Newport, RI. It also didn't hurt that the opening was just days before the 4th of July. And then when you enter the house, STRIPES EVERYWHERE. It was stunning! The entire house was based around Mark's love for blue and white, which is one of the reasons I love his work so much because I share the same affinity for that color combo. Here is just a taste of what the talented Mark Sikes put together for the 2017 Coastal Living Idea House.
