Wylie Inn and Conference Center at Endicott College, which sits along a stretch of Boston’s North Shore oceanfront, has upgraded its conference center and 91 guestrooms.

The property’s designers at Design Continuum were inspired by nearby Patch Beach and used a coastal color palette of blues, greens and sandy neutrals.

The rooms were refreshed with new hard goods and a design that frames views of the 10-acre estate. The 91 rooms now have new dressers, hospitality centers and desks in cherry finish.
