    Default A renovated fisherman’s cottage


    The cottage, which was built in 1904, has been renovated by NY-based architects Rhea White and Steve Schappacher of Schappacher White.



    The owners, who bought the house as a weekend retreat, were acutally looking for something more modern but when they saw this cottage they couldn’t resist making an offer.



    Throughout the interiors, whites, off whites, and sand colors have been used. Black and natural wood was used as contrasts.





    A mix of modern pieces, antiques, and found objects has been used to decorate the rooms.

    too cutesy, country and contrived.

    I love what they have done. Don't find it at all cutesy or contrived! Love it. Seems to suit the surroundings.

    Really charming. I'd splotch in some bright, primary colors here and there (red, hot pink, greens, blues), but it's very nice.

    Very cute, and in this case white is not a bad choice, considering
    such cottages are tiny. Well done.

    I really like. I could do without the severe black and white color scheme in the living area, though.

    Cute, but I shudder thinking about having to clean all that white stuff.

    Nice spaces, but I really do not like the color scheme. Easily changed though with some paint and color.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!
