Hello friends! How are you doing today? Did you all have a fun Christmas? We had a great time together as a family of five now! And yes, it was a bit louder, less organized and it took a bit longer to open all the gifts, but it was perfect just the way it was! We stayed home (is there a better place to celebrate Christmas?), had lost of delicious food, snow was falling and the kids were loud, a good sign that they were having a ball!
I have to say that we had a really wonderful Christmas but I’m feeling exhausted today! So, if you’re feeling like me, just try to take it easy and enjoy some quiet time. We all deserve that!
Now, are you ready to relax and enjoy the cottage of the week? Take a look at this adorable 1908 cottage is a 750-square-foot and it’s located in Sag Harbor. The cottage was bought in 1983 by Phyllis Landi and it was very different than now. The whole cottage was covered in dark paneling and all that she wanted to do was to make it look lighter, brighter and much happier. She transformed what felt like a dark cave into a very airy, summery vacation home.
Shades & Trees
A cute cottage always makes my heart sing. Isn’t it adorable?
The whole cottage was inspired by this photo. She wanted all walls to be white with a neutral pallet. A cottage inspired by Marylyn? Yes, you heard it right!
Every space counts when you live with only 750-square-foot. Using the space under the staircase is smart and in this case, it looks great!
The dining room is a tresure trove of vintage Heywood-Wakefield pieces.
I adore this space. So cozy and welcoming!
Bright Me Up
Bringing color can be so fun! Don’t be afraid of doing it.
Sunny bedrooms are perfect for cottages.
A sunroom is always a perfect place to read a good book. Bring only comfortable furniture into it.
Sunshine, where are you? Oh, I wish I was under the sun, eating some fresh salad on a beautiful patio like this one.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing this cute cottage and some “sunny pictures”. It really made me miss last summer! But at the same time, I know I can’t complain. After all, I’m blessed to live in a place where all the seasons are truly beautiful.
Wishing you a blessed week!

Hey Luciane….how was your Christmas? Hope it was a great one, spent with the new baby! This cottage is so charming and welcoming, love all the fun splashes of color…..all the best in 2012!
Love this cottage and all the bright colors used in the dishes. I wouldn’t chage a thing except those stairs, they look more like a ladder and I don’t do ladders!
Happy New Year Luciane to you and your family!
Lu, tudo bem?

I LOVE this cottage! The Mid-Century Modern furniture is to die for, and the cheerful colours are just asking you to step inside 🙂 I want to pin everything!!!

Adore! Love all the unexpected mid century modern pieces in the space. M.
What a calming place! Glad you had a nice first Christmas with Matthew Luciane. 🙂
This is such a charming cottage, Luciane. Just perfect for the beach…and Sag Harbor is a lovely setting for it. Thanks for the tour.
All the best…Victoria
nossa, deve ser muito bom pegar uma casa escura, feia e transformar num ninho gostoso assim, deve dar orgulho das escolhas feitas!
O natal aqui foi tranquilo e gostoso, até a chuva que caiu fez o dia no sitio da sogra e a noite na casa da mãe, mais fresquinha e aconchegante, porque a semana anterior tinha sido um calor fora do comum aqui no sul. Depois do natal só hoje deu um bom dia de sol hoje aqui.
Que seu ano novo seja tranquilo e feliz como o natal.
Não sei se vai dar tempo de te visitar novamente, mas desejo que o ano seja cheio de saúde, sucesso e alegrias com os filhotes.
Que no ano novo possamos curtir tuas postagens sempre tão gostosas e bem elaboradas, sentindo tua gentileza e carinho aqui do outro lado da telinha!!!!
I was strolling through the internet when I came across your blog and saw my cottage. Thanks for posting it and thanks to all your friends for their very kind comments. Will be checking your blog for other cottages of the week.
All the best in 2012
