still wishing you were away in a holiday home somewhere other than here busy getting back into it all? yeah, me too — and this fire island home will fit the bill just fine, thank you. i imagine it to be a so cozy in the winter months and i could settle in by that beautiful white brick fireplace quite nicely with a stack of design magazines or a good book. featured recently on maryn, i was inspired right away by that white on white look with divine vintage vibes — and the fact that you can only get to this shingled cottage by the sea via ferry ride sounds pretty idyllic indeed.

  1. I, too, have a white fire place, but instead of a hot roaring fire (one I would really appreciate right now, by the way), I have books instead. Doh. Anyway, thanks for sharing pics of this lovely and bright cottage. It is clearly perfect for these short winter days. So inspiring!

  2. I absolutely adore this cottage…it makes me want to leave California and head east for a delicious fire and a good read

  3. Thanks for your kind words! A treat for me to have our cozy little cottage pop up in my mail while I am shivering away in wintery grey NYC! Only 12 weeks / 84 days or 2016 hours til we’re back there, but who’s counting?! Love your design eye and inspiring blog and deeply flattered for you to feature our simple home here.
