Revived vintage gem

Posted on Mon, 20 Nov 2023 by midcenturyjo

Built in 1972 by Joe D’Urso, this East Hamptons house features striking black lining boards on its interior and exterior walls. Interior design studio 2Michaels preserved the original essence, maintaining the staircase, railings, and metal kitchen and bathroom cabinets. They revamped with Ann Sacks fixtures, transforming the kitchen and bathrooms. Shifting from dark industrial carpeting to white oak floors, they curated a bright sunroom, a vibrant contrast to the darker walls, sustaining the indoor-outdoor vibe. Seasons bring natural shifts, with shade from trees in spring and summer, and radiant warmth in fall and winter as sunlight floods the space.

I was just thinking about Joe D’urso this weekend watching ‘Eyes of Laura Mars’. Coming across his work when I was a kid in very rural northern Illinois expanded my young design vocabulary and my desire to inspire. Thanks again for all your hard work!
