Entry Foyer by Michael Herold

“It showcases classic design elements and a unique flair for meaningful art,” Michael Herold says of the eclectically curated two-story foyer. Benjamin Moore’s “Cloud Cover” paint pops against the dark-stained wood floors. Iconic Pedro Friedeberg hand chairs add whimsy. A geometric pattern from Stanton Carpet covers the stairs.

Entry Foyer by Michael Herold

Displaying a collection of artwork is a console table from Newel Antiques. The vintage lithograph, brass bowl, and plaster figure add interest to the space.

Living Room by Brian del Toro

Inspired by a recent trip to China, Brian del Toro chose “furniture that was either from Asia or that had simple lines to echo the stronger Chinese elements” for the living room with soaring proportions. Patterns with predominantly white grounds—like the subtle faux bois wallcovering and pretty pillow fabrics—add interest without overwhelming the eyes. A curved sofa and wing chairs flanking the mantel provide ample seating. The horse figurine is from Lladró.

Dining Room by Skye Kirby Westcott and Tina Anastasia for Lillian August

The oval table and surrounding chairs are all by Lillian August. Candleholders, artwork, and a cabinet with blue-painted back panel complete the lavish look. Overhead, a sea-glass chandelier from Corbett Lighting steals the show.

Dining Room by Skye Kirby Westcott and Tina Anastasia for Lillian August

The window treatment’s floral fabric with olive and aqua tones jump-started the dining room’s design. “We wanted the space to exude a casual elegance fit for any meal, anytime,” Skye Kirby Westcott says.

Cool, green-on-gray fabric from Romo covers the Meryl Bench by Lillian August. 

Butler’s Pantry by Sean Bruns and Judy Hadlock

The fun zebra wallcovering drove the neutral palette. “Playing up big scale in a small space creates energy in a room,” Judy Hadlock says. Charcoal Caesarstone countertops complement the crisp white cabinetry. The wine cooler is courtesy of Sub-Zero.

Butler’s Pantry by Sean Bruns and Judy Hadlock

The gorgeous oversized chandelier from Hudson Valley Lighting added formality to the small space.

Kitchen by Robert Bakes

White rift-sawn oak cabinets bleached to the shade of driftwood are a sunny nod to the nearby ocean in Robert Bakes’ kitchen. The designer warmed the space with a mix of white-painted and bleached-wood finishes rather than install an all-white kitchen. White Macaubas quartzite from AKDO covers the island. Overhead, twin polished-nickel fixtures from Hudson Valley provide task lighting and can be dimmed for intimate dining.

Keeping Room by Patricia Fisher

With its sumptuous seating and subtle cream-and-gray palette, the keeping room is an ideal spot to spend the weekend. “It’s user-friendly, but still sophisticated,” says designer Patricia Fisher. Shots of chartreuse hint at the beautiful Hampton views beyond the bay windows. The linen sofa, matching club chairs, tiered coffee table, and silver orb chandelier are by Ballard Designs.

Sitting Room by Dennis McAvena

Dennis McAvena arranged the long, narrow sitting room to induce rest and relaxation. Sheer draperies allow sunlight to stream in through the terrace’s double doors. The custom banquette features brown linen from Pearson with bronze nailhead trim. Pearson also provided the coordinating lounge chair. An antique area rug, 18th-century prints, and shagreen nesting tables add personality.

Porch by Bryant Keller

Bryant Keller didn’t want typical patio furniture in his outdoor space. Instead, he sought out antique pieces from India and the South Pacific that can withstand the Hamptons’ humid climate and hold up against rain or sun. The four-post daybed and plantation chairs are “both comfortable and beautiful, without a hint of patio.” Handwoven rice bags offer additional seating.

Interior designer: Bryant Keller, Bryant Keller Interiors, 920 Riverside Drive, Suite 39, New York, NY 10032; 917/334-8620, bryantkeller.com.  

Family Room by Sherrill Canet

To make the sprawling space more intimate, Sherrill Canet divided it into two distinct sitting areas. The room features furnishings from Pearson, including the oversized ottoman in a perky ikat print. Canet discovered the back wall’s collection of mirrors in Marrakech. “The Moroccan flavor was the perfect fit for the beach-chic atmosphere,” she says.

Family Room by Sherrill Canet

In the dining area, laser-cut aluminum window shades in fuchsia serve as a fashionable alternative to fabric. Above, a gilded pendant inset with crystals draws the eye. The space is furnished with pieces from Pearson including a stunning shagreen cabinet.

Lounge by Dale B. Cohen

Dale B. Cohen’s architectural eye came in handy when working with the lounge’s open floor plan. A stationary panel camouflages the stairwell, forming a backdrop for the sitting area. An angular sofa fits perfectly in front of the simulated wall with an amoeba-like coffee table and a playful pouf. “The room needed an expressive sculptural object—something people would circulate around like a piece of art,” the designer says. So she collaborated with artist John Houshmand to create a giant beehive-like lantern of woven wood strips. The gray carpet is from Shaw Floors.

Rec Room & Wine Cellar by Eddy Doumas with Vicki Glotzer and Victoria Jones

 “We envisioned the homeowners and their friends enjoying whiskey and wine over great conversation,” explains Eddy Doumas. Navy wall paint acted as a springboard for the rest of the room’s design. Family-friendly accessories add a playful feel to the space.

Rec Room & Wine Cellar by Eddy Doumas with Vicki Glotzer and Victoria Jones

Anchoring the space is a concrete pool table, which rests atop a hand-knotted mohair rug. The bar area features Caesarstone countertops and a backsplash from Crossville. Ocean artwork decorates the wall. The ceramic tile flooring is by Shaw Floors. 

Media Room by Annemarie diSalvo and John Lawlor

“All good theater designs should create a cocoon-like experience,” says Annemarie diSalvo, who designed the light and bright media room with John Lawlor. The purple-and-gold draperies stimulated the ceiling’s geometric design. A velvet-upholstered, high-low sectional sofa lets guests lie down and still be at eye level with the screen. A popcorn maker is essential for any viewing party. The carpet is by Shaw Floors.

Laundry Room by Sean Bruns and Judy Hadlock

An indigo wallcovering in a trellis pattern instantly updates the laundry room. The oversized crystal chandelier proves “small, utilitarian spaces can be just as stylish as main rooms of the house,” Judy Hadlock says. The stacked washers and dryers are from Electrolux. An antique étagère offers efficient storage for soaps and cleaning supplies.

Powder Room by Patrick Mele

Primary colors amplify the exotic powder room’s black-and-white palette. Patrick Mele selected the hand-blown, bubble glass chandelier and colorful taxidermy parrot for their “instant impact and humor.” The hedge wallcovering is a nod to the home’s surrounding greenery. Polished-nickel faucet from P.E. Guerin.

Master Sitting Room by Bradley Stephens

Bradley Stephens drew the club-like palette of the master sitting room from the natural tones of the seaside. Grass cloth wallcoverings, a chevron-patterned ceiling, and a seagrass rug evoke the timeworn, gray-brown tones of driftwood and weathered shingles, providing a backdrop that welcomes a mix of modern furniture forms.

A shell-encrusted bust of Julius Caesar presides over the console table in the master sitting room. Ottomans by Scott Daniel can be tucked away or pulled out for extra seating. 

Master Bedroom by Celerie Kemble

Bold patterns with bright color mix in the master bedroom. A pair of chairs from Henredon flank the white commode to create a stunning vignette.

Master Bedroom by Celerie Kemble

Celerie Kemble’s master bedroom serves as a “sophisticated, year-round retreat from city life.” The foliage-inspired wallcovering plays well with the room’s fabrics, including the draperies’ pinstriped linen and the desk chair’s Prussian blue velvet. Sheer draperies on the Henredon upholstered bed enhance the airy atmosphere. Maitland-Smith provided the shell-inlay folding screen, wastebasket, and brass desk lamp. 

Master Bedroom by Celerie Kemble

The octagonal sitting room’s sofas, armchairs, and petal cocktail table are also by Henredon. Hudson Valley Lighting’s aged-brass lantern punctuates the teal ceiling.  

Master Bathroom by Michael Mariotti

Hudson Valley Lighting’s crystal-beaded chandelier caps an assembly of glamorous elements in Michael Mariotti’s master bathroom. Mirrored sconces, graceful sheers, a Lucite vanity chair, and a high-gloss tile floor add to the sparkle factor. Trim in a white Benjamin Moore paint creates a clean division between grass cloth walls and a Venetian plaster ceiling.

The elegant color scheme and chic furnishings in the master bath create an ultra glamorous getaway.

Dressing Room by Austin Varner

Austin Varner’s dressing room exudes luxury. Matching velvet-covered chairs practically float on the plush, ivory-colored rug by The Rug Company. Antique trim stylishly breaks the stretch of velvet on a round ottoman. An exotic marbleized vellum dresser nods to framed artwork and the soft gray walls.

An antique daybed from Anglo Raj Antiques provides a rustic touch to an otherwise glam dressing room.

Bedroom by Keith Baltimore

Keith Baltimore’s design rules include “thinking outside the box, sticking to a theme, and using unexpected pieces.” He kept to those tenets when piecing together this “quintessential summer bedroom.” An antique area rug grounds the refuge’s twig-patterned wallcovering, soft-pink linen sofa, oak coffee table, and crocheted window treatment. A Noguchi lantern and painted stripes of silver and white highlight the tented ceiling.

Guest Suite by Elizabeth Hagins with Richard Mortimer

An upbeat palette, abstract art, and contemporary furnishings combine in a “1970s-style gentlemen’s retreat.” Elizabeth Hagins and Richard Mortimer imagined a noted art critic spending his weekends in the suite. No doubt Troy Lighting’s stunning hand-forged iron pendant would meet with the critic’s approval. The colorful area rug is from The Rug Company.

Bedroom by Barbara Page

This “opulent yet casual” bedroom suite by Barbara Page is feminine without being fussy. The quatrefoil grass cloth wallcovering sets the stage for a vibrant honeydew headboard and lavender silk draperies. An upholstered Lucite X bench holds court at the foot of the bed.

Bedroom by Barbara Page

A floral-etched, Tibetan-wool area rug from The Rug Company covers the floor. The coiled aluminum-wire chandelier is from Hinkley Lighting.  The Arteriors lamp on the chest of drawers echoes the lavender of the draperies.

Bedroom by Barbara Ostrom

Barbara Ostrom’s bedroom is the honeymoon hideaway couples yearn for. The faux bois wallcovering and custom bed canopy disguise the room’s awkward sloped walls with uneven angles. A sheepskin bench with Lucite legs and a fanciful, faux coral mirror supplement the otherwise traditional trimmings. Stealing the show is the painted ceiling in a trellis-and-vine motif.

Bedroom by Barbara Ostrom

Yellow orchids add a pretty touch on the Mecox Gardens pedestal table. The upholstered lounge chair and ottoman by the window provide a great spot to kick back and relax. 

Bedroom by Lynne Scalo

Because the showhouse has so many bedrooms, Lynne Scalo decided to design a “game-room getaway with a Marrakech-meets-Hamptons vibe.” Eclectic seating pieces, ranging from rattan peacock chairs and zigzag-print poufs to a shearling-upholstered chair with stainless-steel legs, sit pretty atop the sisal area rug. A “keyhole” mirror adds glamour. The polished-nickel chandelier is by Corbett Lighting.

Guest Suite by Brian Brady and Franco Biscardi

It’s safe to say Brian Brady and Franco Biscardi aren’t afraid of texture. From the grass cloth wallcovering and wool-and-linen rug to the baby alpaca upholstery on the button-tufted bed mattress, the guest bedroom is awash in natural fibers. The adjustable bronze floor lamps are courtesy of Circa Lighting.

Guest Suite by Brian Brady and Franco Biscardi

A chair from Laurin Copen Antiques pulls up to a vintage desk. The earthy color scheme of moss green and sand tones is reflective of the room’s surrounding woods and lawn.  

Guest Bath by Alan Court

Natural textures and neutral tones underscore this tranquil retreat designed by Alan Court. Recycled leather tiles form a unique wallcovering, which is offset by molding trim painted in Benjamin Moore’s “Morning Dew.” A crushed-glass countertop and pewter hardware dress the driftwood vanity. The mirrors with wall-mounted lights reflect a lovely bronze orb pendant.

Porch by Ken Gemes

A resin-wicker pedestal dining table from Frontgate affords prime pool views on this well-appointed wraparound porch. The chairs, console, and awning-striped rug—also by Frontgate—play off the room’s white ceiling and trim. In terms of entertaining, “I envision St. Barts-style lunches with Domaines Ott rosé in abundance,” says the space’s designer, Ken Gemes. Pedestals with fluted urns full of ferns soften the shingle walls. The hanging lanterns in antique-bronze finish are from Hinkley Lighting.

Accents in aqua and coral capture summer color.

Pool Area by Jack Levy

Designer Jack Levy intended the corner pool area to be an intimate gathering spot, not used solely for sunbathing. The serene escape is furnished with sectional sofas, a coffee table, and an umbrella from Gloster. A soothing color scheme of blues and wood tones references the water, bluestone, and tree bark. Tower-like finials introduce architecture to the flourishing backdrop.

Pool Area by Jack Levy

“I think patio and pool areas should be part of the landscape,” Levy says. The structural bronze tables remind him of lily pads and insects.

Pool Terrace by Kim Murauskas

The other end of the pool showcases wicker furniture with striped cushions from Frontgate. An elephant umbrella table with a cerulean canopy offers stylish shade. Large teak lanterns illuminate the area, encouraging evening swims and late-night lingering.

Design: Kim Murauskas, Frontgate, frontgate.com.  

Porch by Kim Hendrickson-Radovich

Designer Kim Hendrickson-Radovich intended this posh outdoor space to function as a “summertime family room,” complete with plenty of seating with poolside views, a cool-blue palette, and lots of pattern. A bright white paint by Benjamin Moore coats the moldings and tongue-and-groove beadboard ceiling. The innovative window treatment with removable walls and layered draperies gives the porch an indoor feel. All the outdoor furniture, including the white wicker sofa, matching lounge chairs, and laser-cut side table, is from Frontgate. The sisal area rug is from Stanton Carpet.

The seahorse console table and coral accents inject an ocean aesthetic to the porch. The “Temecula” mirror echoes the forms of the medallion-patterned wallcovering from Kravet.

In all cases, the emphasis on comfort and cohesiveness is evident. The end result: a collection of sophisticated spaces sure to inspire.
