Cottages on the Coast: Fair Harbors and Secret Shores

Cottages on the Coast: Fair Harbors and Secret Shores is a spectacular look at the extraordinary construction and interior design of coastal cottages on the shorelines of the Pacific, to the coasts of the Gulf of Mexico, to the beaches of the Atlantic. The 200 present-day and vintage full-color photographs of more than two dozen sea-loving residences illustrate the physical desire, wonder, and fear that draw visitors to make their home along these coastal views. Featured in this survey are Tennessee Williams’s Key West haven and the modern Puget Sound cabin of Thomas Bosworth.

Design writer and editor Linda Leigh Paul is the author of Cottage and Cabin, Casa Bohemia: The Spanish-Style House, Ranches of the American West, and more.
