The sweetest words in my design vocabulary! If you share my ever growing fondness of small homes in beautiful locations, you’ll be happy to notice how I regularly post tours that fit the description, no matter how old or new. This particular cottage was published a few years ago in Traditional Home and it belongs to Manhattan couple Patricia and Jeffrey Fisher. Set in one of the prettiest parts of East Hampton, just a few blocks from the beach, this shingle clad house has an undeniable charm to it. Inside and out.
Patricia Fisher is a New York City designer and former art dealer with a fine eye for subtle sophistication. Her love of Swedish antiques can be traced throughout their summer home – Mora clocks and sun-faded blues, Gustavian tables and chairs upholstered in a fun check, and beautiful patina.
A three month renovation had transformed a dated, dark floor plan into a space that feels bright and open to the outdoors. I love how Fischer skipped heavy patterns in favor of texture in light blues and greens. The designer eliminated dark and quirky corners by installing walls of windows that open to the well-manicured gardens and an alfresco dining area where the couple entertains during the warmer months.
