Renowned interior designer Celeste Cooper has coordinated a triumphant fusion of antique and contemporary style in this restored 1903 Beaux Arts building. The rooms at XV Beacon, with high ceilings and neutral tones, are enlivened by technological touches and controlled splashes of colour and abstract art. Commissioned paintings by modern artists hang next to original cage elevators and ancient historical artefacts, including a 4th century Roman mosaic.
The Charlotte Inn revives old-world hospitality in the Edgartown Edwardian-era home of Samuel Osborne Jr., one of the last successful whaling ship owners. From the mahogany Scottish barrister’s check-in desk to hand- carved four-poster beds, authentic antiques, objets d’art and fine 19th century oil paintings, period features are abundant throughout.
