Atlanta-based designer Bill Musso gave Curbed National the first look at his renovation of a 1989 Bobby McAlpine-designed beachfront property in Rosemary Beach, Fla., the three-bedroom, three-bath second home-with-carriage house of a family based in Atlanta, where Musso holds offices.

· The sheet rock that functioned as the kitchen ceiling was removed, opening up the space; newly exposed beams were wrapped with reclaimed timber.
· New cabinetry, concrete counter tops and new appliances in the kitchen.
· Worn hardwood flooring on the ground floor was replaced with travertine, which stands up well to sand and water tracked in from the beach.
· Original heart-pine flooring on the main floor was replaced with a lime wash.
· All the bathrooms were gutted and refitted with top-of-the-line fixtures and finishes.
· The exterior was repainted to draw in the blue theme carried throughout the interior.
