Interior designer Alexa Hampton was appointed to turn this house in Bridgehampton, New York, into a calm, easygoing but stylish weekend retreat.
Gambrel roof style with shingles. The façade spells out symmetry. Boxwood was planted in the front garden.
A well-scaled double-height entrance hall with a handsome staircase. Here Alexa played with a series of echoing geometrical shapes: diamonds on the chandelier, circles on the console and a grid on the carpet. The shades on the vintage chandelier were painted white to look like stretched linen. Hickory Chair center table, sofa and console.
In the living room mismatched side tables flank a Gustavian console table. The stripes of the pillows match the rug. The Lifeguard, by Thomas L. Tribby, hangs above the mantel.
The dark wood of the floors and table in the kitchen's dining area adds contrast to the white kitchen.
Alexa says of the master bedroom:“Palladian windows are notoriously hard to curtain, either you cover them up and lose the detail or you leave them open and wake up to morning light. My client preferred to wake up to the morning light.”
