A Chic Hamptons Cottage

Yes, another one lol! It seems like the majority of homes I post about are in the Hamptons, I wonder why is that… It must have something to do with the carefree  vibes of beach living. I grew up close to the mountains, away from the sea and have always associated summers with going to the beach. The Black Sea is no Hamptons but it sure has beautiful beaches and has been my summer getaway for many years, before moving to the U.S.

Anyway, I’m rambling. More than a summer destination, the Hamptons are a cultural and artistic hub that has attracted creatives for decades. Painters, artists and designers have found their forever homes in this beautiful enclave. Among them, fashion executive Scott Currie, whose chic little cottage I want to share with you today. The home was featured in Elle Decor in 2009 and like so many well-designed spaces, its interiors have stood the test of time. Cozy and collected, personal and comfortable, pretty without being precious.

My favorite rooms are the library and hallway, as well as the pool house but all the rooms are attractive in that they share a particular aesthetic. Clearly the owner has a great command of his style – 18th century paintings, 19th century antiques, exotic nautical finds like whale vertebras and century old egg collections blend harmoniously under one roof. It’s all a bit quirky, a little bit off and just they way I like it!!

Happy Thursday!

    Years ago we used to visit friends who had a large gorgeous shingle style home in East Hampton. It was almost like going back in time. Summer magic!
