Good morning, friends! We hope it’s a beautiful day in your part of the world. We’re savoring this perfect fall weather and dreaming of charming spaces like this fabulous Shelter Island fisherman’s cottage.


 This incredible garden, perfect for entertaining, might just be our favorite part of this idyllic space.


 A close second is the beautiful black and white color scheme that NY-based architects Rhea White and Steve Schappacher of Schappacher White chose for this fabulous space, built in 1904.


 They were looking for a more modern space but fell in love with this historic charmer. We can totally relate… And think they made an excellent choice!


 Nothing in the house is too matchy or fancy, which makes it all the more charming. This dining room feels like the kind of place where you can put your feet up and relax, not stress about whether you’re making water rings on the table.


Chalkboard paint in a kitchen is so precious and a great way to add character. Plus it’s so kid-friendly and fun! We love the playful way it ties into the black and white color scheme.


 This pretty bedroom looks like it has been here since the home was built. The beds are gracefully aged and add to the elegant feel.


 The bathroom is perfectly updated in keeping with the tone of the house. 


 Fabulous outdoor spaces are the best part of any getaway. For dining or lounging, we can’t think of any place more perfect for total relaxation.


 Painted wood gives this cottage such an authentic feel. Little nooks beat huge rooms any day!


What a cool place to unwind at the end of the day! The modern touches make it feel totally unique.


Lush and streamlined, this landscape is simply stunning. We’d lay out by this pool any day of the week! 

We hope you’re day is as great at this cottage! Thanks for stopping by!
