A Danish-Inspired Getaway on Shelter Island
We fell hard for this getaway that Lisa Jones, a London-born fashion buyer redeveloped with her husband on New York’s remote Shelter Island. What emerged (after purchasing the home in it’s original seventies condition) was a bright, Danish-inspired lakefront home that showcases Lisa’s natural curator eye with many vintage pieces sourced online. Keen to stick to a minimalist, Scandinavian palette, we love how her choice of pieces appear timeless against fabric choices of pink, dark green and hints of yellow. Fashionable Moroccan rugs bring a cosy texture to each room, while a vintage Persian rug punctuates the white-washed oak kitchen floor. Design classics such as the vintage Børge Mogensen daybed and contemporary Hans Wegner for Carl Hansen dining set, work together seamlessly. We can only imagine that this spacious weekend retreat will continue to look timeless for many years to come.
