NJ Beach House: Painstaking detail went into designing the home. “Each piece was mocked up first, and many changes were made before we had the perfect ratio,” says designer/homeowner Kirstin Schultz. Painting the Craftsman-style millwork white—instead of the traditional stained finish—better suits the light and airy mood of a beach home. Contrasting dark-stained oak floors, laid on a 45-degree angle, juxtaposes the very straight lines of the recessed panels and trimwork, she says.
