House Tour: Shelter Island Beach House August 21, 2013 When we think of the beach, we think of simple. Clean, fresh decor that’s neither fussy nor overdone, where minds can de-clutter. We don’t know about you, but our minds are at their uncluttered best when our homes are streamlined as well. As such, we think we might want to move to this Shelter Island house! We’re feeling more relaxed just looking at it! There’s something about slipcovers that make our worries drift out the open, salty-breeze filled doors. Maybe it’s the slouchy look, maybe it’s the ability to remove stains… Whatever. Every element of this kitchen is classic and serene. It’s the kind of place that will look beautiful for years to come. What’s better than a chalkboard with a grocery list? A chalkboard with NO grocery list! Who needs Ambien when your room is so fabulously serene. This bookcase proves that there’s no need to fill every nook with stuff. Plus, who has time to dust when the water is right outside? We love how the soothing color palette was maintained in this adorable bedroom, yet fun abounds! These are the perfect handles for adding a touch of interest without feeling overpowering. We love the whales — this is the ultimate gender-neutral bedding. We feel like this stairway is a summation of the house. Beachy, vacation perfection. Even the dog feels like he has just finished meditating. Wishing you a Wednesday as peaceful as this view!
