American style House

April 8, 2013
Inspired by an idyllic sense

Pierre Frey's Turenne stripe covers the dining chair cushions and the living room sofa. The exposed rafters and roof boards of the living room were left in their original state to retain the feeling of a circa-1900 fisherman's cottage. Sofa by Bielecky Brothers.

Kitchen

Kitchen cabinetry was made by Nantucket furniture maker Carter Mitchell. The open grate design allows for ventilation and the concealment of appliances. Simple plank flooring is painted Benjamin Moore's Deep Ocean and spattered in red, white, and blue. Sconces are brass marine fixtures.

An All-American Deck

On the deck of this waterfront home designed by Gary Mcbournie, Crate & Barrel deck chairs and umbrellas keep to a blue-and-white theme, with splashes of red from Ralph Lauren Home beach towels.

Camp Style

Architect Gil Schafer, who designed this 1939 Connecticut cottage, wanted to give it a "traditional yet fresh, updated feeling."

Camp Style: Living Room

Wicker footstools from Crate & Barrel serve as side tables for the living room chaise from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams.

Camp Style: Porches

Architect Gil Schafer converted an open porch to a screened porch and, next to it, a dining room. Color expert Eve Ashcraft chose Narragansett Green for the porch floor and Stonington Gray for the ceiling, both from Benjamin Moore.

Camp Style: Dining Room

Casement windows wrap the dining room, providing wide-open views of the lake. Navy chairs from Design Within Reach. Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams pillows. Early-20th-century French factory lights from R.T. Facts. Glassware on the farm table is from Source Perrier.

Camp Style: Bedroom

Drawing on memories of a childhood spent on a lake in Michigan, color consultant Eve Ashcraft painted the walls of a guest bedroom Fresh Cream and the floor Windsor Blue in WithStand oil gloss enamel, both from Pratt & Lambert. Trim is Benjamin Moore's White Dove. A flower painting by California artist Lois Howard hangs above a bed from Charles P. Rogers.
