Cottage Living

Where do you go to relax?  The kids are off for the summer in two weeks.    I’m obsessed with cottage living this time of year. It would be wonderful to have a little place by the beach for the summer.

Well-Lived: Thomas Pheasant's Southampton cottage.

The romance of a cottage near the beach with flagstone or brick walkway. It needs to have a garden, not to big please.

Cottage living is all about relaxing.  I love blue and white in the bedroom.

Charming East Hampton Cottage - Traditional Home®

A pool house in the backyard and a patio big enough to entertain and have fabulous summer soirees.  Next month I might just escape to a beach cottage to renew.    Where are you planning your getaway this summer?
