Black and white, a surprise of old gold timber linings, enough retro classics to be cool not ostentatious, enveloping textures and the promise of a good surf break. Not your usual Hamptons holiday getaway and I for one am glad! Montauk Beach House by Space Exploration.
I wonder if Khoury Vogt Architects built sandcastles when they were young and dreamed of bigger things?
With a predicted mid-winter temperature this weekend of a beautiful 22° Celcius you could be forgiven that 28 Degrees Byron Bay is named for the balmy days year round. It’s actually the degrees latitude south of the equator for this coastal hotspot on the northern coastline of New South Wales. It’s time for a virtual getaway in a perfect oasis in a perfect part of the world. Don’t pack too much. It’s casual yet of so stylish resort town. Just don’t forget your swimmers.
A creative use of colour sets this house at Rehoboth Beach apart from others. Classic with a little touch of boho, eclectic and casually elegant, definitely traditional with a twist. By Alexandria, Virginia based Crosby Designs.
A cursory glance at this Southampton’s house with its gabled roof line and greying shingles might lead you to expect an interior chock full of blue and white patterns, white painted furniture, sisal rugs on whitewashed floors and driftwood chandeliers. Perhaps some chrome and glass lantern style lighting and a sizeable collection of Chinese urns. Open the door to this house and you’re in for quite a surprise. Statement designer furniture from the 60s to the 80s, modern art, colour, metal and lucite. It’s like a well curated 1stdibs dealer’s showroom and you know what? It works. Fun, fabulous, personality packed, the perfect place to retreat to if your idea of Hamptons style is more style than “Hamptons”. Waterfront Estate by Frampton Co.
