Sag Harbor Getaway

When the temperature soars (as it has lately), I wish I could escape the congested, sweltering city. Instead of beating through sweaty crowds and traveling in over-packed transit, wouldn’t it be nice to lounge in a cool sea breeze? That’s one of the reasons I find this 3,600-square-foot, four-bedroom home so appealing. The other reason? Although the quaint exterior is suited to its Sag Harbor, New York surrounds, the interiors have a contemporary edge, so I wouldn’t have to leave the city behind altogether. Here’s what I mean:

The exterior of the house has a classic New England look, with it’s generous veranda and shingle siding.

Inside, the modern pendant light above the dining room table is playful and edgy yet ethereal at the same time. It was custom-made for the room with reclaimed, 1950s glass spheres from Scandinavia.

The parlour blends traditional touches — like sliding sash windows and crown moulding — with contemporary furniture and art. Rather than being disjointed, the effect is fun, warm and unique.
