Not too long ago we featured Brooklyn-based architect Elizabeth Roberts’ 1850s cedar-shingle cottage in Bellport, Long Island (the low-key Hamptons alternative). Our favorite feature? The breezy screened porch, overlooking the pool and outfitted with easy-to-replicate elements.
Here’s a guide (and see the full house
here): Above: At one end of the porch, Elizabeth has created an outdoor dining area. For a similar shade of gray for the flooring, consider Benjamin Moore’s Stormy Monday. The Knotty Bubble chandelier by Lindsey Adelman was inspired by Japanese packaging, buoys, and shibari. Above: Elizabeth bought the sun porch sofa at auction and had it painted blue and reupholstered. The macramé plant holder is from CB2. For similar pillows, head over to Serena & Lily. Above: A view from the porch overlooking the pool. Above: The Indio Outdoor Sofa from Pottery Barn is made of sustainably harvested mahogany certified by the Forest Stewardship Council; it’s currently on sale for $799 (pillows are extra). Above: The bamboo/jute Market Coffee Table from Serena & Lily is available with a white or navy enamel tray top; $498. Above: Jasper Morrison was inspired by a folding camping chair he bought in Japan when he designed his Fionda chair for Mattiazzi; €488 ($544) from Milia Shop. It’s available with a red, natural, or black canvas cover. (And for more ideas, see 5 Favorites: The New Canvas and Wood Folding Chair, High to Low.) Above: The hand-braided Macrame Plant Holder, made of cotton/nylon cord, is $24.95 from CB2 (pot not included).
