Bringing beach life to Great Bridge since 2014.


Located in the heart of Great Bridge, refreshed has provided Chesapeake and the Hampton Roads region with beach design and inspiration since 2014.

Our store specializes in high-end beach decor, refreshed and new coastal-inspired furniture, and locally and handmade art and jewelry. We work hard to find and offer unique items and pieces you won’t find anywhere else, carefully curated to help you craft your own beach getaway, no matter where you live.

We are also official retailers of Amy Howard At Home® One Step Paint™ which we pair with a variety of high quality gel stains, wood stains and sealers. We want our customers to be thrilled with their own refreshed pieces, so we offer monthly classes to help you learn and refine your painting and finishing skills.

So whether you’re looking for the perfect piece of furniture, products and tips to make your own inspiration piece, a unique gift for a friend or want to sign up for a class, we look forward to seeing you here at our own little beach retreat!

A Refreshing Place to Shop
A Refreshing Celebration


Hi, I'm Shari, and refreshed is my creative outlet for all things coastal.

Refreshed is the culmination of years in interior design, retail and painting. In Atlantic Beach, Florida I began my design career decorating upscale nurseries and children's’ rooms before moving on to decorating and staging beach homes.

After working to open a Ballard Design in Jacksonville, FL and marrying my best friend and love of my life, Rand, I knew I finally had the know-how and support system to start my own business. So in 2005 I started refreshed in the Eight Flags Antique Market on Amelia Island, FL. I was finding old pieces of furniture that inspired me, then painting nearly everything beachy shades of white for a cottage feel.


When we moved to Chesapeake, Virginia in 2014, we made our home in Great Bridge, re-opening our store in this welcoming and tight-knit community. Since then we have provided the Hampton Road region with furniture, decor, art, jewelry and paint products that help you create your own personal beach getaway no matter where you live.

I love the hunt of finding a perfect piece, the quiet and reflective moments I spend refreshing them, and the thrill of seeing the finished product. I want to help you have the same experience - so come in today to find your inspiration, a finished piece or sign up for a class so you can begin refreshing your own pieces like a pro. We can’t wait to meet you!
