Fire Island Getaway







L-O-V-E this Fire Island retreat featured in Country Living belonging to West Elm creative director, Alex Bates.  The glossy white walls and ceilings give the small space such light and I absolutely adore the large tortoise shells on the enclosed front porch.  The built-in daybed on the porch allows it to double as a guest bedroom—what I would give to be their guest!  Little cottages like these have me longing for the day John and I buy our first home!

    This retreat is heavenly! It’s exactly what I need right now. Actually, I think I may try to book a nice weekend away for me and my boyfriend.

    SWOON! I love the hat display, the all white and bead board in the kitchen, and the white brick fire place in the living room. Can I have this home?

    This is exactly what we dream about! A little cottage would be the perfect first home, and that screened-in porch is Heaven!

    This house is gorgeous! I love it. I picked up an antique tortoise shell at an estate sale for $48; it was such a steal! I haven’t known exactly where to put it though and so this is giving me ideas.
