White is crisp and bright. It highlights and enhances. It expands. Black adds drama. It’s an anchor, a base note in the music of a room. It frames. Together they breathe new life into a tired space, giving rooms an easy sophistication, cool and relaxed. I’m still on my un-Hamptons Hamptons kick although I must admit this home by Manhattan-based design studio BHDM Design is on the North Fork not the South Fork of Long Island. Technicalities kids. This is how you do beach side chic!
