A Southampton Redux

In the year 2000, when this beautiful home was built in Southampton, New York, a trend with builders seemed to be what I fondly refer to as ‘Tuscan Magic’. Lots of warm tones and quite a few faux finishes were plentiful in this region. When my newlywed clients bought this place, we basically started at ground zero with a transformation that shockingly involved a minimal amount of major construction with an abundance of vision.

‘Her’ living room is part of a great room where we reimagined the original fireplace to create this fantastic new one with bookmatched hand selected marble slabs and new millwork.
The formal dining room was originally used as a pool room. I chose a whale wallcovering and light flowy sheers with a clam carpet from The Rug Company and a dramatic chandelier from High Style Deco.
In the dining section of the great room, the chandelier is our own VT Home design with water safe leather chairs and an organic wood dining table.
‘His” living room is a study in blue. The sofas are from our own workroom and the fabric on the accent pillows carry the fish theme along with the original Wayne Trapp fish wall sculpture above the fireplace with new marble.
The music room is one of my favorite places in the house. The seagrass wallcovering creates an intimate mood and the piano is one of only two items that remained from the former house.
The master bedroom is quite large and in lieu of art above the bed we opted for this scenic wallcovering.
The master bath was one of the most dramatic transformations.
