This home was created for another dear family client, for whom I’ve designed multiple residences. The need to balance elegance and functionality for a large family (with dogs!) remained a focus of our collaboration, as the parents enjoy entertaining and wanted to keep kept in traditional Hamptons decor. I focused on supporting this need in the common rooms; creating a space that felt like home, but could support a summer party or evening gathering among friends. The upstairs and bedrooms, though, are themed for the residents: the boy’s room features nautical and ocean motifs, while the relaxing bedroom for the parents is enveloped in rich, but gentle, blue hues.
