Maureen and Nathan Doron are counting their blessings. It was only last fall that their Strathmere, New Jersey, house was flooded by Hurricane Sandy. "We're lucky that everyone was safe," says Maureen, mom to three boys, Luke, 6, Noah, 4, and Toby, 2, and owner of two clothing boutiques called Skirt. Since then, the couple has been busy making repairs to their 2,000-square-foot structure. While new concrete flooring has been installed on the ground level, the rest of the three-story saltbox retains its pre-Sandy spirit of kicky hues and modern furnishings. Maureen, who joined forces with interior designer Mona Ross Berman, calls the decor '60s surfer chic. "The house is cozy and inviting, a fun place to be," she says. "Our kids jump on the sofas and there's pillow fighting—we wouldn't have it any other way."
