In Swampscott, Massachusetts, Cathy designed the home of her dreams with the help of her daughter, Dani. The Hampton-style home is set on a cliff and inside there’s a Southern charm with original art and soft tones throughout. Cathy wanted a home that was relaxing for her and her husband Mark who has Parkinson’s. Since Mark is up a lot in the middle of the night, she and Dani created two separate bedroom suites. Mark’s is a relaxing, handsome space, and just down the hall, Cathy’s is romantic with a fireplace and pale beige tones. “It’s been rough, I won’t lie,” says Cathy of the diagnosis her husband received ten years ago, just a year after their wedding. “For such a strong force in my life and [someone who was] healthy for so long, it’s hard.” She adds that it has been so important for her to have a home with beauty around every corner.
