Delphine and Reed Krakoff’s Chic East Hampton Home


{The Ultra-Chic Pool House– This reminds me so much of the work of David Hicks.}

The April issue of Architectural Digest features a slew of top designers in their own homes. “Personal Best” proclaims the cover– and with good reason! One of my favorite homes in this issue is the impossibly chic East Hampton home of Reed and Delphine Krakoff. Reed, a fashion and accessories designer, and Delphine, an interior designer whose firm, Pamplemousse was founded in 2000 and whose work I have found inspiring for many years, are bases in Manhattan, but bought the storied Long Island estate as an escape for their family of six. The storied Arts and Crafts style home is known as the place where Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis spent her summers as a child. The Krakoffs spent years getting the plumbing, electrical, and all of the other unglamorous elements up to speed and then proceeded to update the architecture and interiors.

I am absolutely in love with the trellis-clad walls in the pool house(above). I love treillage, but this may be my favorite application yet. Executed by Accents of France, the clean lines of the treillage feel completely modern in a cool, early 1970s way. I love that the ceiling was trellised as well. Back in the main house, the interiors are mostly neutral, but in a striking, ultra-chic way.
