Hamptons Idyll

While on the plane on my way back home from New York on Saturday, I read the new ELLE DECOR from cover to cover. One of my favorite projects in the issue was the 1840s Bridgehampton farmhouse designed by Steven Gambrel. While Steven is based in New York and has done countless projects in the city, I feel like his style has become synonymous with the Hamptons vernacular. Perhaps it is because he has done dozens of projects in the Hamptons and has also owned a string of charming houses in the village of Sag Harbor. His go-to color palette of pale hues of blue and green, a great mix of textures, and a masculine-leaning aesthetic imbue the home with Steven’s quintessential style. One of my favorite details of his work is that he paints the walls white, but paints the trim in a contrasting color.

I hope you’ll pick up a copy of the magazine and read the article because the story of the house and all of the rambling additions that were added onto it over the decades presented a challenge for the design team which they handled with aplomb. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite spaces in this stylish house.
