Project: My client's beach house


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.

Can I simply say what a relief to find someone that really
knows what they are discussing on the net. You definitely understand how
to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people should read this and understand this
side of your story. I was surprised that you're not more popular because you definitely possess the gift.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

I've been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
