An Interior Designer’s Transformation of an entire Waquoit Bay House Wins a Homeowners Heart.

Can you fall in Love with a home twice? This Mashpee homeowner did.

The first time the father-of-three walked into this four-bedroom house elegantly set on Waquoit Bay, he fell in love with its impressive water views.
He fell in love again when Michele Chagnon-Holbrook of Casabella Home Furnishings in East Sandwich unveiled her interior design vision — for the entire house.

“I absolutely loved everything she did,” the homeowner says.

Chagnon-Holbrook transformed a somewhat traditional beach house into a vacation home that’s a sophisticated, yet serene oasis ideal for contemporary seaside living—matching the homeowner’s expectations perfectly.

“I wanted the home to be inviting, comfortable—Cape Cod leisure, I called it. I wanted my family and friends to relax because that’s what a Cape vacation house is all about,” the homeowner says.

To make the house into the home of his dreams, the homeowner discovered Casabella, located on Route 6A in East Sandwich, simply by driving by. “I went in and Michele (Chagnon-Holbrook) was extremely enthusiastic about the prospect of furnishing my house,” the homeowner says. “She really listened to what I wanted.”
