Contemporary Shingle South Hampton Elegance
This modern beach gem in South Hampton was more than just a summer home for the clients. Though their primary residence is in Florida, it was clear that this was the place for family gatherings, long weekends with friends and a lot of entertaining. We tore down the original home, kept the pool house and started from scratch. White paneled walls surround the two-story foyer, continue up the staircase and lead into an open living space flooded with light from the backyard terrace and swimming pool. Natural shades of taupe and beige were chosen for many of the furnishings and accents from the marble hearth and mantle to the flanking light-wood built-in bookcases and fabrics chosen for the sofas, chairs, and custom rug. It was important to create a beachy, light, and contemporary design scheme appropriate for a modern family. There’s a relaxed elegance to each of the rooms, with many of the accessories and art reflecting the clients fun-loving personalities. The media room is favorite space for the family with the imposing “Dirty Harry” pop art tableau setting a sexy playful tone against the sophisticated deep brown of the walls, drapes, and furniture fabrics.
