Living Room Opens to Waterfront

Located in Martha's Vineyard, this coastal cottage boasts ocean views at nearly every turn. In the living room, French doors open to the sun and sand, allowing natural light and balmy breezes to filter inside. 

Comfortable and Eclectic Seating

A vacation home can never have too many places to lounge. Here, a contemporary sofa, velvet armchair and wood rocker provide comfy seating for guests, while a brick fireplace keeps the space warm into the evening. A large oil painting and antique art along the walls further the eclectic aesthetic.

Spacious Kitchen With Green Cabinets

Down the hall, a large kitchen with stainless appliances makes entertaining effortless. Light green cabinets and wood trim add unexpected color to the room and carry the home's marshland setting indoors. 

Vaulted Ceilings Heighten Dining Room

Large windows further draw the outdoors in, showcasing views of the surrounding ocean. Overhead, vaulted ceilings pair with neutral walls to make the dining room seem brighter and more spacious.

Dining Room Includes Coastal Colors

Casual, family-style dinners are a must when hosting a crowd. With eight teal chairs and a large wood table, this coastal dining room sets an easy-going tone and gives everyone plenty of elbow room. 

Sitting Room Invites Casual Conversation

After dinner, the adults can head into the adjacent sitting room, where four plush armchairs invite relaxed conversation. A one-of-a-kind wood ottoman centers the eclectic vignette and keeps evening drinks within reach. 

Cozy Den With Colorful, Playful Patterns

In the den, a pink-patterned sofa and blue velvet armchair give the kids a comfy spot to watch movies or play games. A large area rug softens the floor below, while colorful prints and patterns adds fun visual interest to the walls.

Light and Airy Guest Bedroom

White walls, cream-colored pillows and a plush duvet make this guest bedroom the perfect place to settle after a long day. Twin, cottage-style nightstands balance the bed on either side and ensure the space feels light and airy from morning to night. 

Coastal Colors, Cozy Swing Chair

A distressed green dresser adds fun, coastal color to the room and provides extra storage for sheets and linens. Meanwhile, a rattan swing chair promises to sweep guests off their feet for an evening of leisurely reading. 

Cool, Americana Touches in Guest Room

Down the hall, floral bedding and a colorful rug give the second bedroom its own laid-back sense of style. Stars and stripes hang proudly over the bed, warming the white walls with Americana flair.

Antique Vanity With Floral Details

On the other side of the room, an antique vanity and round stool create a space for freshening up before dinner. A wood console table offers extra seating at the foot of the bed or can double as storage for clothes and accessories.  

Master Bedroom With Large Fireplace

To make the master suite feel as light and airy as possible, the designer layered the room in cool white linens and wood accents. A patterned chaise waits at the foot of the bed for evenings spent curled up by the fire. 

Delicate Details in Duvet Cover

A closer look at the bed reveals subtle floral designs in the white duvet cover. When paired with a warm wood headboard and fresh greenery on the nightstand, the vignette feels earthy and delicate. 

Indoor-Outdoor Access

Double doors open the master bedroom to the water and allow the owners to soak in their seaside surroundings. A striped green armchair opposite the bed gives them additional space to stretch out.
