Shelter Island Guest Room

Classic East Coast cottage style.

White walls, black doors and seagrass carpeting are timeless elements in this guest bedroom. The dramatic combo of light and dark distinguishes the coastal architecture. A popular choice in vacation homes, seagrass rugs hold down dust and are more comfortable underfoot than bare wood. Old-fashioned hospital lamps from Beall & Bell are the perfect height for reading.
