I have never been to this exact beach cottage below. What it represents is the perfect culmination of all of the gorgeous, comfy, backwoods, run-down, and essential cottages and cabins that I have been in during the summers of my life. This being the last official weekend of summer, I thought I should share these photos.
The place in time and space featured below is, in my mind, complete bliss. I want to incorporate elements of this cottage living into every aspect of my life.
The Chandelier Surf Shack, I believe in Montauk. Photos courtesy of Garance Dore's blog by the same name.
|Can one get away with so many patterns and colors in anything other than a home that is used for relaxation? The answer is yes. If it is on the water, or if you are dedicated to owning this complete look and making it work.|
|Even the fish have a chic shack for their enjoyment (and everyone else's).|
|I could spend the rest of my life at the end of this dock (with a few choice people, a steady stream of magazines and sweaters, and don't forget the iced tea).|
|The lanterns, the yard. This is how to use a tree and a lawn properly.|
|I mean they have teepees. There are teepees there. I want this place.|
|Of course their beehives are striped. Aren't they all? This is BRILLIANT and gorgeous. And of course it makes me want a beehive.|
|Do I even need to address this embroidery? Love.|
