Country Classic: A Hamptons House by Bunny Williams

They say that everything old is new again. It’s certainly a sentiment I can get behind! After all, there is a reason classic design never goes out of style. In the case of this beautiful home, featured in the current issue of Architectural Digest, a collaboration between Bunny Williams, architect Michel Dwyer, and landscape architect Quincy Hammond proved to be quite fruitful. The clients, a commercial real estate broker and her physician husband elected to build a new house in Southampton, New York, but it has all the wonderful trappings of an old estate thanks to the talented team who brought the timeless design to life. Let’s take a tour, shall we?

{Does it get more classic than a black and white marble checkerboard foyer? In this case, it was inspired by the iconic David Adler homes in Lake Forest, Illinois.}
