This beautiful Shelter Island vacation home is the place where two of New York City’s most creative minds take a break from it all. We’re of course talking about interior designer Jonathan Adler and fashion guru Simon Doonan, who with the help of Gray Organschi Architectural Studio created their dream seafront property by mixing rustic and contemporary designs to create a truly stylish aesthetic. Located in a secluded area on Crab Creek, this lush retreat is modernist expression with an explosion of color inside.
Measuring 1,299 square feet, Adler and Doonan’s fabulous hideaway features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, cathedral ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace for getting cozy in the winter. Jonathan, who combined colorful pieces from his own collection with some curious vintage finds, is responsible for the interior decoration. Far from boring, this home’s artistic interiors are an eclectic mix of styles, materials and colors, representing the couple’s exuberance to perfection.
The home’s exteriors feature a series of secluded courtyards that create intimate, sheltered outdoor spaces from where one can contemplate life while staring out at the ocean. This island oasis also boasts a 75-foot heated gunite pool with an outdoor shower and lush tropical vegetatio,n including Himalayan banana plants and a Japanese forest completed with blood grass and bamboo canes.
This beautiful rustic modern retreat is the perfect summer escape from the city.
