Whether ultramodern or hundreds of years old, every one of the summer houses in Jennifer Ash Rudick and Tria Giovan’s lavish coffee table book Summer to Summer: Houses By the Sea is brimming with idiosyncratic style

“We can almost feel the beachside breezes and sand under our feet while gathering decorating ideas to try.” ― Flower

From the rocky coast of Maine to the sandy beaches of the Hamptons, from Nantucket to Newport, from Fire Island to Fishers Island, from Martha’s Vineyard to Provincetown, summer houses are as varied in style as the people who hightail it to the beach as soon as the temperature climbs. In this lushly illustrated book, author Jennifer Ash Rudick has sought out twenty-five of the best. She invites us into a minimally decorated, Isamu Noguchi–designed home in Northeast Harbor and Sister Parrish’s cozy multigenerational house in Dark Harbor. We imagine relaxing in a comfortably cushioned rattan chair on the sun porch of a Nantucket house designed by Tom Scheerer, taking in the view of Long Island Sound through the glass curtain wall of a sleek house on Fishers Island, and feeling snugly cosseted in a tiny Provincetown cottage.

With over 300 full-color photographs, all we need to do is settle back, kick off our shoes, and let the sun-kissed pages of Summer to Summer wash over us.

“From sleek and modern to eclectic and historic, a new book celebrates the magic of East Coast summer retreats.” ―Introspective Magazine
