The Simply Luxurious Life®: A Weekend Escape to a Martha’s Vineyard Cottage

A Weekend Escape to a Martha’s Vineyard Cottage

Lately, I’ve been feeling that my summer was missing something, and then I realized it was one of my favorite television shows – Monk.  I don’t know about you, but I actually found Tony Shalhoub’s character Adrian Monk and all of his eccentricities endearing in a very odd way and miss the intelligence of the humor of the show.

Thankfully though, he can be found (as himself) in Country Living with his wife Brooke Adams letting us take a look at their 2500 square food Martha’s Vineyard cottage which was built in the 1930s.  Such simplicity and an air of unpretentiousness can be seen in each of the rooms.  Wearing jeans, your most comfortable t-shirt and letting your hair down is what appears this home calls for, in other words come and relax, unwind and forget about the rush of life.

Written by Katy McColl, you can view the entire article here and see even more details about each room.  One thing that I love is seeing flea market finds next to quality purchases. The master bed is covered in a gorgeous Anthropologie coverlet and on the shelves on either side are simple bottles with a single flower. What a wonderful idea. Enjoy the tour.
