Principals Bob Sprouls and Darren Andreoli and their team have earned more than 30 Home Building Industry awards to date, and continue to exceed the expectations of both the home building community and their customers year after year.

The Polished Nickel finish of the Darlana Large Lantern by E.F. Chapman reflects the natural sunlight in this bright stairway during the day, and provides a warm glow in the evening.
The Bluewater team created an open living and dining space in this Westport, CT home, ideal for enjoying its panoramic views of the Long Island Sound. The Camille Small Chandelier by Suzanne Kasler is a casual yet elegant touch over the glass dining table.
Bluewater selected the Patrick Large Pendants by Thomas O’Brien to light one of two islands in this spacious kitchen, which won the 2016 HOBI Award for Best Residential Remodeled Kitchen & Lower Level.
The expert craftsmanship of a Bluewater home is evident in the details. A bow window and fireplace lined with herringbone stone grace the living room of this Nantucket Shingle style home. A pair of Primitive Sconces by Clodagh add modern flair to the mantel.
Interior designer Michelle Hogue of hogueID completed this Bluewater home with luxurious yet livable furnishings. The Windsor Large Hanging Shade by Ralph Lauren takes center stage in this airy master bedroom.
First look! The stunning kitchen in Bluewater’s latest Compo Beach home features Precision Large Pendants by Kelly Wearstler in Polished Nickel.
The five-bedroom home was built with both indoor and outdoor entertaining in mind, complete with an expansive rear patio lit by Fresno Long Wall Sconces by E.F. Chapman.

Step inside the breathtaking Coastal Living 2016 Showhouse in Bridgehampton, New York. The 6,800-square-foot retreat designed by architect Fred Throo with interiors by Meg Braff is a modern take on the traditional Hamptons-style home. Shop the lighting looks showcased in some of our favorite spaces and see the full house in the September issue of Coastal Living!
Harmonious pops of blue and green can be found throughout the house. The combination makes a splash in the living room, which overlooks the pool area through french doors.
The showhouse features 10 bright prints from Braff’s own wallpaper and fabric lines. She selected a white mirror and light fixtures to accent her tropical fan pattern on the powder room walls.
In the dining room, Braff opted for white surfaces and chair legs in place of natural wood tones for a brighter, more casual feel.
Builders Anthony Balducci and Dave Bennett added character to the 18-foot cathedral ceiling of the master bedroom with white beams and shiplap paneling.
The master suite is the only room to prominently feature the color yellow, which makes the room and its elements feel all the more special.
The home was built to be the ultimate retreat for playing host to summer visitors. Guest accommodations include three colorful bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms.
Braff repeated the embroidered shell motif seen on the bedding in the first guest room on the towels in the adjoining bathroom.
Rattan pieces in the second bedroom add an touch of vintage flair to the predominantly modern decor.
Braff incorporated the coral hue in the second guest bathroom with scalloped tile and a subtle wallpaper pattern.
A solid shade of kiwi green on the walls of the third guest room balance the plethora of prints in surrounding rooms. Fresh flowers and a sculptural table lamp at the bedside add organic charm.
Polished nickel fixtures and crisp, white cabinets make for a clean look at the vanity of the third guest bathroom.
A game table, desk and trundle beds doubling as sofas are clever accommodations for guests in the bonus room over the garage.
A spacious laundry room on the second floor is as beautiful as it is functional.
The pool house lounge and changing room echo the playful use of color and pattern found in the main house.
