Shop the Look: Breezy Sag Harbor Cottage

Mark and Blythe Harris's Sag Harbor Cottage designed by Elizabeth Cooper - on Savvy Home Blog

“Mark and I took a walk and found ourselves standing outside Steven Gambrel’s house, marveling at the architecture and his gorgeous wood floors. He spotted us, invited us in, and gave us the name of the woodworker who made them. Those floors transformed the house!”

If the moody tones, shiplap walls and bleached floors in this Sag Harbor cottage seem familiar, it might have something to do with Steven Gambrel. When you have a famed interior guru as a neighbor, you better dig for all the advice you can get. That’s exactly what Stella & Dot co-founder Blythe Harris and her husband Mark did when they ran into Gambrel during a neighborhood walk. With his few words of advice, and the help of interior designer Elizabeth Cooper, the couple were able to transform a century old Sag Harbor cottage into a breezy summertime escape.

The bleached pumpkin pine floors are overlaid with Madeline Weinrib striped cotton dhurries, the beds are layered with John Robshaw quilts and the rest is a mix of vintage industrial and nautical nods. In the children’s bedroom, the Katie Ridder Beetlecat wallpaper adds a touch of whimsy.

This breezy cottage is merely a summertime escape for this bi-coastal family — who divides its time between San Francisco and Sag Harbor. I say sign me up for their life immediately. I would like nothing more than to shop up a storm at Jed or MONC XIII and drink milkshakes at LT Burger on a weekly basis.

    Gorgeous home. I love little details like the opened windows and the fan in the bedroom – things that make a house cozy and fresh :)

    What a beautiful home! I have always loved that Katie Ridder wallpaper and thought it would look so perfect in a little boy’s room. The exposed beams in the kitchen and the beautiful rustic wood floors…wow what an amazing space.
