The July issue of Architectural Digest features a shingle style home on Martha’s Vineyard, built in the 1700s and designed by Victoria Hagan… I can never resist such charming historic preservation! The homeowners, who are based in New York, fell in love with its simplicity and its prime beachfront location in Edgartown. Longtime clients of Victoria’s, the couple commissioned her – along with architect Boris Baranovich – to renovate the home so it would properly accommodate their three active children and houseguests.
“We were all so excited,” Victoria told Architectural Digest. “So I thought, I have to handle this very carefully. It’s so special. They loved the oldness of it, and there’s a quirkiness to it. It’s this little old house with many replaces—a cottage from another time.” Historical paint colors in shades of blue, khaki, and green were used throughout the house, and the original kitchen was retained with the blue-and-white painted floor and traditional cabinets. An addition by Baranovich was carefully designed to feel natural to the house and “bridge the 18th century to the 21st.” Let’s take a look inside!
