This summer is going to be the second in a row for me with no real vacation! Oh my. So, I’ll spend the whole summer lusting after interior design in vacation homes, weekend getaway cottages, and far off destination. Okay…I’ve got to do it somehow…I’ve got to squeeze in a proper vacation. I don’t know how…but I’m going to try to take even a few days off.
A lake retreat…that would do just fine for me…this one in Montauk on Long Island would work for a bit of rest and relaxation.
The decor in this vacation home is very fresh, white, clean modern. Very neutral I do concede. Could use a a bit of warming up. I might add some of my COCOCOZY throws and pillows into the mix to add a bit of texture here and there. I might also add a few colorfully painted furniture pieces to the space too, a bit of fab modern art to the walls (maybe a large turquoise linear piece from one of my favorite artists Brian Wills) and some soft window coverings with subtle but distinct prints. I would keep the color palette of many of the textiles in the blue white family. Otherwise, I adore the high ceilings, the reclaimed wood on the walls in the entry and the white painted wood floors. The yard and pool are all lustworthy too btw.
Do you like this lake side retreat? What would you add to the decor to make it work for you? Where are you going on vacation this summer and what do you like design wise about where you are going?
