Readers share their thoughts on the Summer Living issue and house makeovers.

HALCYON HOMES

Loved your Summer Living issue (June 18), especially the beautiful beach houses.

I always enjoy seeing the beautiful homes and rooms featured, but how about something for the rest of us? Why don’t you feature redecorated rental homes/apartments or a redecorated little condo that would excite those of us who cannot afford interior designers or architects?

Kudos to the [homeowners] for working with the existing building rather than tearing down [“A Cottage Built for Two,” June 18]. I’m a fan of color and coziness, but I can see the beauty in this design, so light and airy.

This [renovation] does not integrate with the traditional Cape Cod aesthetic at all — it seems like the homeowners stripped out the soul of the property and rammed a Manhattan interior into it. . . . [I]t’s a whitewashing of the original property which does nothing to celebrate the unique and charming cottage culture of the Cape. . . . I’m just not a fan!
