Shingle Sag Harbor Cottage with Coastal Interiors. Small Shingle Cottage with Coastal Interiors. #ShingleCottage #CoastalInteriors


I often post fancy cottages, but it’s the small, quaint shingle cottages that always steal my heart.

I look at this single cottage and I can’t help but design it in my mind. I imagine buying this place (it’s currently for sale for $1,295,000) and changing some of the decor, adding some personal details and especially sprucing up the exterior.

Located in Sag Harbor, NY, United States, this waterfront pied-a-tier sits alongside its own sandy beach with breathtaking views of Sag Harbor Cove. Newly renovated inside, this two bedroom, one bath cottage with seaside décor is the ultimate place to spend sunny weekends at.

Expertly crafted open living spaces feature a small white kitchen with open layout, living room with brick fireplace and ample windows bringing in the Hampton’s light. A mahogany deck gives way to your own private sunrises and sunsets.

This is surely a place to live simply and unwind. Let’s pack our bags?

The front door opens directly to the newly renovated kitchen. As you can see, the space is not big, but it was surely done right.

The kitchen features beautiful stainless steel appliances, modern white cabinets, honed black granite and subway tile backsplash.

Notice the dark stained floors and the view of the water.

Casual furniture brings a relaxed feel to this cottage, while useful built-ins, on each side of the fireplace, adds extra storage space.

This is the one and only bathroom in the cottage. Having only one bathroom is not an easy task but this one was beautifully designed. I especially like the beveled subway tiles in the shower, the large marble basketweave floor tiling and the white quartz countertop.

This cottage is all about this view! Isn’t it peaceful?

The mahogany deck is great but I would replace the patio set for something more inviting and comfortable.

This picture seems that was taken early in the spring, which explains how lack of flowers. I would love to plant lots of flowers, perhaps hydrangeas, and make of it a beautiful path to the beach.

Wouldn’t it be nice to leave all the noise, all the work and craziness behind and spend the weekend by the water? I wouldn’t say “no” to that! 🙂



Now, you’re the designer! What would you do to improve this cottage?

Hi! How are you today? I was just thinking about summer right now and I feel it’s going by so fast. Do you feel the same way? It’s a little bit sad, isn’t it?

I still have many plans for the rest of this summer and I want to enjoy every sunny day we get. I am simply not ready to think about what comes next…

It’s funny how life goes by so fast and it seems to never stop. I went to Costco the other day and I saw a Christmas tree! I felt like saying something to someone… seriously, a Christmas tree already? Is Costco trying to a “gentle message” that I should start getting ready for Christmas already? Don’t get me wrong, I love shopping at Costco but this is a bit too forceful and quite stressful. Let me enjoy the sunshine, let me breathe the fresh air and feel the warm ocean’s breeze. Let me feel like I am still where I am at: summer!

Start reminding me about Christmas when the weather is cold and snow is about to fall. I won’t forget to spend my money at your store. I know I have a big list of gifts. There’s nothing to worry. In fact, let me worry less. Allow me to live without thinking too much about what is coming next. How about we start embracing this exact moment? What is wrong with that?

Today, I am taking the day to allow myself to live in the moment. I will pay attention to what is happening around me and what my mind, my spirit and my body needs from me. I will look at my family and see them, instead of just jumping in the car and rushing to do everything that’s on my agenda.

We need to start looking around and make conscious choices.

It’s time for us to turn every utter message off and start turning our brain on.

Have a fantastic summer day!

with Love,

    This place is adorable! Oh, to have an extra million to play with! I was in my local Hallmark store and the displays for Halloween and Christmas ornaments were up and I told the girl I was not ready to see any of it. I’m hanging on to summer for as long as I can!

    I grew up going to Corona del Mar (many years ago) and it has always been a place I’ve dreamed of living. The house you posted in your last post would do just fine. Wow…that is one gorgeous house. I can remember walking along that street that overlooks Big Corona beach and thinking “maybe I could live in one of those house someday!” Well…little did I know that prices along that golden strip would be what they are today!
    However, I would take this cottage in a heartbeat! So much more practical for my life today! LOVE it! Thank you for sharing the most beautiful dream homes! I can live vicariously through your blog!!!

    I love shingle houses too! I just posted my favorite front entry on my old beach house. This cottage is the perfect size for a get away. I don’t think I would change the interior, but I would add a little portico for the front & a little picket gate, for a basket of flowers! It’s darling! Happy August, enjoy! xo, Gail
