As if my first post today didn’t have you scheming and dreaming of a way to move into a wonderful old farmhouse on Shelter Island then this post will tempt you even further. The renovation of this former fisherman’s cottage is also by SchappacherWhite Architects DPC. In fact it was the architects’ own home until they sold it (lucky new owners). The 1904 house underwent a sympathetic transformation creating a year round home just right for family and friends. The interiors feature natural materials and a neutral colour palette of whites and sands contrasted with black provides a perfect backdrop for a mix of modern, antique and found pieces.

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then it helps if it’s somewhere super stylish. (Bonus points for the Shogun Floor Lamp by Mario Botta.) 2T Thorel Office by A.R. Rivani.
Just as our first white house celebrated it’s stylish simplicity so does this contemporary house on Sydney’s northern beaches. Even though it doesn’t sit in a field of waving grasses tree tops and expansive blue sky are captured through a feature celestory window. Light and airy, open plan living perfect for the Australian climate. Skylight House by Rachel Hudson Architecture.
Simple beauty rising from a field of grass. As elegant as it is straightforward. An oasis of white with shutters to control the amount of Texas sun entering the tranquil interiuors. Round Top Farmhouse by Houston-based Murphy Mears Architects.
This lovely home is the Shelter Island, NY summer oasis of John and Christine Gachot, of design firm Gachot Studios. I love the casual, earthy vibe here, especially the painting studio that occupies a former carriage shed. What a fun spot to hang out and enjoy the summer weather.
