a renovated fisherman’s cottage


On Remodalista I can accross this beautiful fisherman’s cottage on Shelter Island, USA. The cottage, which was built in 1904, has been renovated by NY-based architects Rhea White and Steve Schappacher of Schappacher White.


The owners, who bought the house as a weekend retreat, were acutally looking for something more modern but when they saw this cottage they couldn’t resist making an offer.


Throughout the interiors, whites, off whites, and sand colors have been used. Black and natural wood was used as contrasts.



A gorgeous rocking chair.


A mix of modern pieces, antiques, and found objects has been used to decorate the rooms.
