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.
