This beautiful house in Southampton, NY was a project I worked on a few years ago. I wish that I had taken more photos...maybe when I go visit this summer I'll snap a few more. This was a fun job because the client is very creative. She made some of the window treatments and pillow shams and even was hard at work painting a few pieces of furniture we found at yard sales. We really utilized a nice mix of sources from high-end furniture showrooms and art galleries to yard sales, tag sales, auctions, flea markets and bargain stores. That's my favorite way to decorate.
Their family room/great room. The client wanted a soothing, light, beach-y feel. The area rug is from Elizabeth Eakins and the Bergere chair is from Baker furniture. The upholstered pieces are from E.J.Victor. The fabrics used in this room are from Kravet, Lee Jofa and Ralph Lauren. The chair was finished in a black walnut and the stool was a yard sale find.
This armoire was custom made with shutter doors and after the paint was applied we asked them to use several coats of Briwax to give it an aged patina. It's from Country Gear in Bridgehampton. The architectural wall hangings, the luggage and the camera sitting on top are from a local antique store.
This is their view from the great room.
The front porch wraps around to an area we call the 'Garden cafe'. It's full of pieces we found at various yard sales and garden stores that were reclaimed, re-painted and 'as is'.
Baker's Milling Road clock.
Baker's Milling Road collection bench. Most of the artwork on the main floor is from the store Privet Cove in Southampton.
We grabbed handfuls of star fish, sea shells and candles at a local store and displayed them all around the counter area of this tub.
An old piano chair is added for extra seating or a place to throw a towel. A light grass cloth wall covering was used and the rug is an Elizabeth Eakins' rug that was purchased from one of my favorite stores called English Country Antiques.
