As eclectic and creative as its owner, photographer and film director Cindy Sherman, this East Hampton home by Billy Cotton is funky, fab and free spirited. Another great example of traditional with a twist where the textiles, rugs and wallcoverings are the heroes. Country chic that is unpretentious and comfortable.

The exterior gives you just a hint at what treasures the interior holds. The white walls and black arched windows suggest a restrained elegance, a sophistication but the myriad of topiary balls cascading on the front garden suggests a sense of humour. Through the front door is a home full of personality and pizzazz but what else would you expect from Betsy Burnham of Los Angeles based Burnham Design? One of my favourite designers has done it again!
We all fell in love with Casa Cook Rhodes. Now it’s time to do the same with its sister property. Taking inspiration from traditional Greek island architecture, Casa Cook Kos has a village-like feel with one and two-storey cubist houses grouped around gardens and patios. The palette is earthy and natural with a play on dark interiors and bright outdoor spaces. From rooms to suites and villas the experience is about low-key luxury. There is one problem though. It’s not really a weekend getaway. It’s more a lifestyle runaway.
