As we move into the holiday season and a new year, I am thrilled that global travel is back on our horizons. With COVID19 restrictions lifting, we can start to plan those vacations we had to cancel over the past 20 months. And there’s no better time to see a part of the world that you have never explored like today. I have been fortunate to travel to some of the most beautiful coastal areas in the world—Santorini, the Amal. Coast, Santa Rosa, St. John’s, St. Barths, the Cape Cod National Seashore, and Monhegan Island in Maine. In this issue, we celebrate global travel with an article on Regent Seven Seas Cruises. This elegant luxury cruise line allows its passengers to visit the most beautiful destinations in the world in high…

Accolades flow to Marnie Oursler as steadily as the ocean tides. More meaningful to Oursler, though, is her pure love for design and construction. As the president of Marnie Custom Homes in Bethany Beach, Delaware, Oursler holds a star position as a source of distinctive homes on the Delaware beachfront and nearby Fenwick Island. Oursler’s success is reflected in her distinguished background: a seat on the board of directors at the Duke University Fuqua School of Business’s Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation; an Entrepreneur of the Year Stevie Award for Women in Business; and a spot as a finalist in the Woman of the Year 2020 Awards sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders. “I think of our homes as transitional coastal style,” says Oursler: bright and spacious, with a modern…

room with a view

“It is the primary entry, so as the first introduction it had to set the tone for a relaxed inviting, comfortable and welcoming home. This room needed to be equally comfortable by day or evening. It doubles as the screening room, equipped with a state of the art sound system, as well as acoustic walls and ceiling to assure the best viewing experience. The views to the ocean are breathtaking and are almost secondary once this room embraces you.”–Marguerite Rodgers, President and Creative Director, Marguerite Rodgers Interior Design 1.

When it came to designing an existing kitchen outfitted with cabinets and countertops for a homeowner in Irvine, California, Nancy Russert, owner of Les Beaux Interiors in Manhattan Beach, had a blank slate. “Our client wanted a clean, inviting space to cook and entertain,” says Russert. “We added eight barstools so all guests could get involved in the prep and conversations during gatherings, and new pendant lights gave the space personality and grounded the massively long counter.” To complete the space and add ease and functionality, Russert layered in rustic and natural elements such as an oversized woven hurricane for flowers or candles, pottery, cookbooks, wooden cutting boards, and ceramic prep bowls. Russert also carefully considered the kitchen’s location to nearby rooms by establishing seamless transitions. “I love that the final…

the long view

At the Bayside Home on the South Shore of Long Island, the vista rules. Its site’s provocative view of the water drove the home’s design by architects at New York’s Deborah Berke Partners. For starters, their plan called for two indoor entertainment areas—one with an open kitchen and living room and another with dining area and screened porch—to form a C shape that flanks an outdoor terrace with pool and spa. All three spaces open up to the waterfront on the home’s northern exposure. Then there’s the glazed, floor-to-ceiling façade, created with 8-by-10-feet sheets of glass. “It marches around the house,” quips Catherine Bird, a principal at the firm. “It’s got rhythm,” says the firm’s namesake and founder, Deborah Berke. Actually, it’s got more than that. This 6,900-square-foot house has a near-weightless feel, the…
