Hamptons weekend retreat

First off -I am a fan of the wide white plank walls. They are both textural and calm, while also adding graphic linear dimension to the rooms.


Black ‘Moderne’ style fixtures paired with dark beams and pale pine floors .

Lots of  blue graphic in the rugs and bedding that keep the space current – but the combination of  thin black window frames and fixtures, light pine floors and glossy white paneled walls  are timeless.

Love the gridded alignment of the bottom windows that make the space feel both open and protected.

Soaring ceiling, and cozy seating.

Another glamorous and simple fireplace surround.

Also interesting in the house are the mixs of floors, dark wood in the living area, limed in the dining,brick  tiled in the kitchen and pale pine in the upstairs. I think while I love the contrast of the dark floors with the white walls – I like the simple yellow pine best.

Rustic and calm Hollywood home

I love the sculptural calm of this fireplace where the soot has formed a patina on the brick that contrasts the white plaster and becomes a design element.

These two tablescape shots really pull all the design elements together, soft pink – faded peacock textile, rough wood, elegant black iron, paned glass, textural baskets and organic brass.

Love the dark tall library bookcases.

The kitchen with it’s white counters, and pickled paneled doors  is so simple and warm without being expected.


One of my favorite pairings is of  danish modern chairs with worn farmhouse tables. The red gingham is a burst of color from an  unexpected palette.

This little setup in the hallway is both eccentric and warm, I can’t see using that chair other than for resting items – I love the glazed pot holding the glossy leaved plant which warms up all the other elements.

The Living room features the two distinct seating areas – again pulling in elegant iron, worn peacock/indigo blue fabrics, pale  linen and white plaster and full but spare window treatments.

The master bedroom is both glamorous while also showcasing worn rustic.

The Nursery holds some of my favorite elements of the house – gray palette, worn peacock blue rug – large baskets and natural greenery, soaring rafters and the elegant iron curtain rods with full curtains.

This child’s room with its tall ceilings is still warm and cozy with the layered textures and pale pink shades.

This house of course highlights the decorators new home line Mint – I love her taste in everything (except for the art section – sorry JT!)
