Cozy beach cottage gets re-imagined in the village of East Hampton

Shingle Style Beach Cottage-Chango Co-01-1 Kindesign

A peaceful yet playful summer getaway, this elegant and cozy beach cottage has been re-designed by Chango & Co., located in East Hampton, New York. The project encompasses the complete renovation of a drab interior and exterior old beach home that was in desperate need of being revitalized. The palette inspiration began with a traditional navy and white sailor stripe shirt mixed with the gradients of the beach, from the sand to the ocean.

These stripes helped to breathe new life and intertwine the spaces of the home and giving it a new sense of personality and purpose. The exterior facade of the home is clad in natural cedar shingles and the entryway is pronounced with a royal blue painted door. Upon entryway into the home, you can see the dining room in the distance. The ambiance is very serene with shimmering grasscloth wallpaper and bleached oak flooring running throughout the main living spaces.

Every element seems to represent something reminiscent of the sea, such as the wide loom sisal rugs taking on a sandy beach-like quality. The layering of sheer fabrics diffusing sunlight like an umbrella and picking up breezes like a sail from a boat.
