HGTV host and interior designer Sarah Richardson shares her family's island cottage with CountryLiving, and the style incorporates some modern elements with a beachy seaside vibe.

Though the house is new construction, Richardson wanted to give the place a sense of history, and so incorporated salvaged materials into her kitchen design, and lots of antiques elsewhere in the home. She carried a blue-green palette throughout the rooms, adding pops of red in the master bedroom to give a slightly different vibe while keeping with the theme in the rest of the house. A restful guest bedroom keeps the colors to a minimum in order to highlight the stunning natural scenery beyond the windows.
