Meadow magic

Posted on Tue, 16 May 2023 by midcenturyjo

“A modern barn compound that rose out of a once vacant lot, situated amongst a meadow and collections of mature trees, as if it had always been in Sagaponack. The program called for an organically maintained landscape, with a wildflower abundant show meadow to the south, and a more wild matrix of tall grasses to mix in with the carefully sourced and placed trees. As the landscape has matured, Summerhill has been tasked with cultivating the many native species that have self sown into the original planting, while honoring the original design aesthetic that called for intense bursts of color in the Summer.”

I can hear the bees buzzing through my computer screen. Meadow magic from the portfolio of Summerhill Landscapes. (Landscape architect Rees Roberts + Partners and house by Steven Harris Architects.)

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself to work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. 255 George Street by Richards Standish.

Bridgehampton Residence

Posted on Fri, 12 May 2023 by midcenturyjo

Traditional and yet edgy and young. Think mid-century scandi meets quintessential English cottage. What a great mix for this Bridgehampton home by Augusta Hoffman Studio for a couple who wanted it all.

So chic, so sophisticated, so French. A modern with mid-century take on the Haussmannian style with its mix of French tradition and style with vintage furniture, exclusive 20th-century antiques and bespoke furniture. Luxembourg Gardens by Argentine-trained Paris-based architect Luis Laplace.

Modern Deco Hacienda

Posted on Wed, 10 May 2023 by midcenturyjo

“Originally built as a 1920s Spanish Revival, we gave the three-story home a complete overhaul to incorporate modern style and Art Deco influence … The space includes a library, elevator, tasting room, and lower level designed for lengthy stays from family and friends. The centerpiece of the home is a spectacular custom fabricated, curved blackened-steel staircase with bronze top cap that connects all four levels—including the roof deck, with its hot tub and raised vegetable/herb garden.”

Light, glass, Art Deco lines, standout vintage lighting. It all comes together under the design hands of Regan Baker Design to produce an all-enveloping family home over multiple levels.
