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?

We’re getting hit by another snow storm today, and I think it’s safe to say I’m officially over Winter! Modern coastal interiors have been on my mind as of late, and I’m really loving this moody pastel blue sofa paired with a fabulous mix of neutral textures – slubby linen, reflective inlaid bone, urban concrete, furry sheep skin, nubby jute, shiny white lacquer and woven rattan.

Hope you’re all safe and warm today, Spring weather cannot arrive soon enough!
