Home tour- A New York home makeover!

When a home in Breezy Point was damaged by Hurricane Sandy, Country Living recruited talented designer, Emily Henderson and a team of builder and design crew to restore and makeover this 1,000-square-foot bungalow. Let's take a look at this casual, nautical-inspired home below!

I like this home's relaxed, fun and casual vibe! My favorite area is the bright and airy living room and wood-paneled bedroom. The one element I can't get my eyes off is the beautiful blue and white tiles in the bathroom, it is so unexpected and chic! What are your drawn to, my lovelies?
