LOVING: Hampton’s Homes

From South Hampton to Amagansett, we reveal our favourite Hampton’s homes and the elements that keep them inspired when working with this classic look.

Dan Scotti’s East Hampton Home “I love this modern take on the traditional Hamptons style created by Interior Designer Dan Scotti for his home in East Hampton.  Dianne Keaton famously rented the beach house last year and loved every minute of her time there.  Personally I’m a sucker for all of the traditional “Hamptons” elements like the wall paneling, shaker style joinery doors, combinations of greys and whites – plus all that gorgeous laid back styling for easy family living. But I love it even more with these more current tones and materials – note those swoon-worthy brass wall lights in the library!”

“Quite fittingly, Kate and Andy’s Southampton House once served as the boardinghouse for William Merrit Chase’s Shinnecock Hills Summer School of Art.  This nine-hundred square metre residence is understandably  stylishly packed with incredible artwork, bold patterns, layered textures and in the true Spade fashion – colour! I love the consistent mix of antique style furniture brought to life with pops of colour and mixed mediums such as the simple yet effective black and white stripe wallpaper and hepsi and persian style floor coverings throughout. A motorbike parked in the entry/living space establishes an effortlessly cool persona within this home, which transcends through all internal spaces. I think the eclectic mix of pre loved furniture wonderfully compliments the existing structural elements that are the painted exposed beams and rich timber flooring. I love how this house brings about a feeling of charm and homeliness without becoming too overwhelming as you might expect through such a diverse range of bright colour palettes, rather they offset one another perfectly. When can I visit!?”

Celebrity Chef Katie Lee’s Southampton Home Owned by celebrity chef Katie Lee, this bright and airy abode has a bold aesthetic which was created through a complete transformation ably assisted by close friend and Designer, Nate Berkus. It’s a unique estate with its distinctive Hampton’s architecture and gorgeous grounds but a charming sensibility. It was important to Kate that both the interiors and outdoors possess a relaxed carefree quality – especially aligning with her need to entertain.  I love the fact that a lot of her furniture was re-purposed for this home, coming from different spaces Katie has owned over the years and creatively put together and placed in their new context. She made some bold colour choices like re-painting her once black entry table a kelly green colour and re-upholstering some x-base stools in a vibrant fabric from Sri-Lanka, pulling it all together with a vintage rug pictured below. She introduced her own personal touch with little elements like finding a vintage sari and turning it into a wallpaper. I’m completely taken with her ability to re-purpose the decor and create a story through different design choices. It makes it overall a comfortable and inviting palette that one feels drawn to when needing a rest from the big city – which is what the Hampton’s is all about!

White House à la Aerin Lauder’s East Hampton Estate My new favourite Hampton’s house is the ever stylish home of Aerin Lauder. Aerin is the Image Director for Estee Lauder and has her own line of furniture named AERIN. She is effortless chic and pulls together the most inviting space with her edited luxe collection of furniture and decor. This Hampton’s home embraces the outdoors and really shows off the spectacular lush gardens and pool area.  It’s white on white perfection, unlike her famously colour splashed Manhattan apartment.

Gwyenth Paltrow’s Amangansett Home Hamptons style – it is always been the shingles for me. Roof, walls I don’t mind which…I like both. Sometimes I think the Hampton’s style can be a bit “twee” but when its on a more modest scale I really love it. It has great soul with the wooden elements and I particularly like it when the external shingles are left raw making it even more elemental. The home can really evolve and sink into its environment with ease when this weathering takes place. Gwyneth and Chris’s pool house is an example of that for me. One feature I really love in Gwyneth’s holiday home is the kitchen. Its clean lines and black accents aren’t necessarily considered a Hampton’s look but it still references the tradition of the style in the joinery and layout. It is a contemporary spin on the traditional Hampton’s style. It reminds me of the way the company Plain English in the UK do a modern take on scullery kitchens – clever and contemporary yet respectful.
