The Shore House Reopens in Narragansett


Narragansett, Rhode Island’s historic boutique concept the Shore House has reopened following a refresh led by David Ashen of Dash Design. Formerly the Ocean Rose Inn, the Victorian-style beachside structure returns with nine revived guestrooms as well as reimagined common areas that juxtapose old and new.

“The hotel’s seaside Narragansett location inspired us to blueprint a restoration that was a playful, upscale rift on the quintessential beachy inns that populate the New England coastline,” Ashen says. “With an overall understated luxury feel, we wanted the Shore House to pay homage to its rich history and location.”

A traditional front desk anchors the lobby, which is populated with antique tables, wicker chairs, and Chesterfield sofas, set against a backdrop of paneled walls. A downstairs library evokes calm with oak trim wood floors.

Opening later this summer, signature onsite eatery Sea Craft will feature a design from Libby Slader that’s both beachy and sophisticated. Dark woods and gold accents will echo the upscale coastal vernaculars of places like Palm Beach and the Hamptons with notes of refreshing color.

The Shore House guestrooms include king beds are installed atop hardwood floors, while upholstered antique furnishings contrasts whimsical wallpaper. Neutral tones adorn the bathrooms, which were refloored with marble to match vanities. In the property’s Oceanside building, accommodations balance elegance with natural simplicity through a palette of light hues.

“Guests can expect a space that mixes old and new, where antique furnishings are given a new life in an array of whimsical rooms, each one with a different type of wallpaper and color palette than the last,” adds Ashen.
