Our Most Popular Rooms In July



With summer in full swing, it comes as no surprise that you gravitated towards rooms with natural elements last month. From light-filled kitchens to enchanting al fresco entertaining spaces, check out the most popular posts from the @cottagesgardens Instagram feed last month.

The modern children's dining set is the icing on the cake in the kitchen of this Bridghampton home designed by Timothy Godbold, which boasts soaring ceilings and statuary marble countertops and backsplash.

At this Atherton residence, Timothy Chapelle of Arcanum Architecture covered the exterior walls of the main and pool houses with cement plaster and their roofs with terra cotta tiles for a Mediterranean-inspired look and Martha Angus filled the interiors with art and sculptural furnishings.

Designer Timothy Godbold let his clients' artwork take the place of color in their Bridgehampton home. On the second-floor landing, a neutral Severin Hansen-designed daybed sits with a photograph by Jens Assur.

Last month, we asked designers about their favorite way to decorate with stripes. Jennifer Jones of Niche Interiors advised using stripes in small doses, like with the accent pillow that adds subtle interest to this living room.

An IDA winner in the Small Spaces category, Nautilus Architects designed this 600-square-foot pool house both as a casual retreat and as a self-contained dwelling.

Interior designer Carol Flanagan celebrated the natural light and views in her Greenwich home with this IDA-winning kitchen, which has windows and French doors as well as exposed beams that add a rustic vibe.

A Crate & Barrel sofa and Ralph Lauren Home armchairs create a cozy seating area in this sun-drenched pool house.

This IDA-winning master bathroom designed by Sage Design accommodates not only the couple, but their five children as well! The kids apparently jump at the chance to soak in the stainless steel-wrapped tub.

This resort-like backyard in Wainscott belongs to a sprawling Shingle-style home reimagined by Nathan Thomas of Bruce Bierman Design.

Designer Lauren Nelson chose a trio of geometric Lawson Fenning pendants to add a touch of glam to the kitchen of this Parisian-inspired San Francisco home.

James Merrell Architects 
From our perspective in the 21st century, all styles are historical. Even Modernism is now a century old. So, we are free to interpret, and interweave the minimal with the decorative to find new expressions for our own era. Our house celebrates this new design freedom. It brings a contemporary sensibility to the architectural covenants of this otherwise traditional neighborhood. Floor to ceiling glass on the ground floor, for instance, yields modern interior spaces. While above, divided windows sit comfortably in second floor dormers. And the style that results is both unique and timeless.
