Amanda Nisbet: Oceans 3 Showhouse

Nisbet used the living room as neutral starting point for the condo.


Back in October, I did a feature on Amanda Nisbet’s distinctive use of color and her flair for style. Her fresh approach and heavy use of colors and textures made her an ideal candidate to design one of the three Traditional Home’s Oceans 3 Showhouses. Amanda’s Oceans 3 showhouse (it’s actually a condo) is the first to be featured in the magazine, which will eventually feature the other two oceanside retreats by Eric Cohler and Philip Gorivan in future issues.

Located in Montauk in The Hamptons, the stylish condo designed by Nisbet is an ideal getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city and the stresses of daily life. Despite an exuberant use of color, Nisbet manages to make the condo feel bright and relaxing.

Nisbet added a lucite top to the Somerset Bay table so that it would lend itself to the lucite stools she custom designed. The stools are covered in “Canton Silk” fabric in Teal by Orient Express.

The neutral kitchen features Wood-Mode cabinetry and genuine onyx tiles by Ann Sacks. It wouldn’t be an Amanda Nisbet kitchen without a burst of color…notice the bright orange Kitchen-Aid stand mixer.

The master bedroom features a bamboo headboard by Louis J. Solomon, tiered tables by Henredon, chunky crystal table lamps by Circa Lighting. The drapes are made from a printed silk designed by Nisbet.

The master bath features “Chalkstripe” vanities by Kohler, Ann Sacks marble tile, and mirrors from Modern History.

This secondary bedroom features drapes made from a fabric designed by Nisbet, an Albert Menin Interiors Daybed, a retro phone from Target, hanging light by Urban Electric Co., a custom Long Island Map by Soicher Marin, and a fabulous red “Annaleah” floorlamp also by Nisbet.
Nisbet made a custom bulletin board complete with a nickel frame from Skyframe and navy fabric from Fabricut. The fabulous vintage chair was redone by Nisbet. It looks great alongside Ralph Lauren’s “Highbridge” desk.

The “B.Happy” room is Nisbet’s version of the increasingly popular family/media room. Bold colors abound, but my favorite are the quatrefoil “Cara” mirrors by Henredon.

The tranquil outdoor living area offers spectacular views of the beach.

  1. Love the office space in the secondary bedroom! Partly because I have that yellow chair! Mine is upholstered with a beige/greyish fabric though. And it’s definitly not vintage, but by a French company that makes antique looking furniture 🙂
