A recent renovation of sophisticated spaces at The Club at New Seabury provided Anastos an adventurous and exciting backdrop for her inspired design talents. The intersection of her design acumen and the uniquely distinctive fixtures and details Anastos chose for the project resulted in a BRICC Award (Builders and Remodelers Industry of Cape Cod) from the local Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Cape Cod (HB&RACC), but also a second-place Golden Fork recognition internationally from Golf, Inc.
