I'm on a lovely long weekend, June Long Weekend, here in Australia, and with that in mind was thinking of weekenders & home-away-from-home cottages and I came across this gorgeous 'weekend home' located on Fire Island NY, in Country Living magazine...it belongs to Alex Bates, who is the creative director of [U.S Home Decor & Furniture company] 'West Elm'.
By using a crisp, clean palette and pared back, simple furnishings Alex has successfully created a calm, serene presence that 's not comprised by 'just' being a weekender! I know you'll love this cottage as much as I do... Enjoy! x
