I’ve always dreamed of owning a beach or country house and this charming New England home has made my daydreams run wild. Located on a small island in Maine, the vacation cottage is owned by a family based in Charleston, South Carolina. After several summers in Maine, they finally pulled the trigger on a modest 1,200-square-foot cottage and set about making it their own. The space, published by Country Living, features a fantastic mix of modern lucite and Bertoia chairs alongside reclaimed barnwood and granny chic antiques. Explore more of the sweet home below.

My apologies for disappearing late last week. We were in New York…getting married! My man and I tied the knot at city hall on Friday and our families flew in from California and London to help celebrate. Even 84-year-old Grandma Rita made the trip! Thursday night we had a delicious dinner in the wine room at Freeman’s (hearing Rita imitate my husband’s English accent was priceless…) and after the Friday morning ceremony we skipped to The Odeon for a champagne brunch. It was all so simple and easy and fun—we wouldn’t have changed a thing. I’ll be sure to share a few of the professional photos when they arrive. In the meantime, my wedding shoes.
