This carefully restored wing of a Georgian house in Cornwall, England, overlooks the tall ships in Charleston, a historic harbor village designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. With its spare white walls, pale wood floors, and just-so furnishings old and new, it’s filled with timeless design ideas. Known as the Marine Villa, it’s available for rent through Antonia’s Pearls and Kid & Coe. Classic British seaside holiday, anyone?
