And this one located in the quaint, sleepy town of Sag Harbor has plenty of character to boast! I adore the neutral palette and well-lived-in aesthetic, paired with the traditional structure; resulting in an authentic and collected space that owner and interior designer, Michelle Smith, coins as “almost accidental looking”. Smith states: “Every room should have a touch of whimsey and a touch of weird, but you shouldn’t be able to pinpoint what those touches are.” – I couldn’t agree more!

What’s your favorite style beach houses?

  1. cozy, fun, cozy, fun!! i like beach homes that are vacation homes. not to big, shack like and lot’s of sand on the floor. it’s hard to have that in your permanent, every day home!!

  2. Oh my gosh what a perfect home! I love every picture. It seems like each and every element of the home was chosen with a great deal of thought, but also in a wonderful way were things were collected over time. I am also really drawn to the simplicity of all the rooms, I feel like sometimes our house it a bit to cluttered. What a good reminder to cut things down a bit and only keep the things you truly love.
