A shingle style colonial cottage in East Hampton gets a breezy makeover

shingle-style-colonial-exterior

This shingle-style Colonial cottage was beautifully renovated by designer Thom Filicia, located in East Hampton, a village in Suffolk County, New York. This historic home was given a fresh and playful makeover for a young couple with two children.

At the request of the homeowners, this home needed to have a relaxed vibe, durable materials, and a touch of whimsy. They desired pops of color, pattern, and a layering of textures — all of which became the inspiration for the revival of this home.

Classic details include a traditional staircase, paneled wainscoting, and a columned fireplace. The designer selected a combination of comfortable yet tailored furnishings. On the walls, raffia wallcovering adds texture while providing contrast with the white walls and painted floors.

What We Love: This East Hampton cottage is brimming with personality, it’s fresh, light, and full of color and pattern. The designer did a wonderful job of preserving historic details and mixing traditional pieces with playful touches to create a family home that caters to both children and adults alike. We are especially loving the fabulous sleeping porch and breezy indoor-outdoor connection, overall a beautiful home that feels warm and welcoming.

In the dining room, the same wallcovering is repeated from the living room, creating a sense of unity. The chairs at the end of the table are upholstered in Belgian linen, while the side chairs are woven leather complimented by a rustic trestle table that can be extended for extra dinner guests.

The kitchen features a painted floor in red, white, blue, and gray stripes that brings a playful touch to this space. Since this room is located by the pool, it needed to be durable enough to accommodate wet bathing suits and people coming in and out for snacks and beverages. This casual space is perfect for family breakfasts with a beautiful view of the backyard.
