[/su_column] [su_column size=”2/3″] Progress Lighting: Why does this style of design resonate with homeowners and prospective buyers?
Michele: An open floor plan is very popular with homeowners and utilizing light and soothing colors (blues & greens) only enhances the openness. Having a bright open space is pleasing and psychologically affects your mood in a positive way.
Progress Lighting: What are your main areas of focus when designing a coastal themed home?
Michele: We try to focus not on one specific room, but on how we want the overall home to look and feel. We usually select the flooring first, as we consider that the foundation, and then expand the finishes from there.

Michele: Often, we see homeowners using too many coastal accessories. Not every pillow has to have a fish or coral – the concept of “less is more” really applies when designing a coastal home.
