A wonderful beach cottage designed by New York-based interior designer Jenny Wolf Interiors as her personal family retreat, is located in East Hampton, New York. The home was originally a dingy shingle-clad home built in the early 1900s, not exactly what the designer and her family had in mind when they went house hunting in the Hamptons, but they fell in love with the beautiful gardens. The designer got to work on the renovations, taking six weeks to re-create their dream house. The goal was to make the home feel more spacious without creating an addition. There was originally an attic in the home, which was removed, allowing for higher, exposed vaulted ceilings. The ceiling joists were also left exposed in the main living areas of the first floor living and dining rooms to allow for increased ceiling height. Natural light was increased by adding a more expansive passageway between the living and dining areas. Luminosity was also increased with a fresh coat of crisp white paint throughout the interiors. In contrast, the flooring in the main living spaces, with the exception of the kitchen, were coated with a serene shade of green.
The Look: Contemporary beach vibe. Textures, natural materials and a hint of color makes this breezy beach pad chic and stylish.

What We Love: The soft grayish-green of the floorings pairs beautifully with the soft, neutral fabrics of the furnishings and beachy decor.

This cozy dining room has industrial nuances with an exposed brick support column and Tolix chairs paired with a Knoll dining table. Delineating the space is a sisal rug underfoot, adding texture and warmth…and injecting in the beachy feel.
In the kitchen, all white cabinets are complimented with shades of blue to bring in the ocean, with the retro Smeg refrigerator and fabric on the breakfast table chairs. A half wall of chalkboard paint above the beadboard allows the perfect spot for the homeowners to write grocery lists and other reminders.
In the girl’s room, a mezzanine level was added, with a wooden ladder that takes you up to a private little oasis… a sleeping platform.
