“Simplicity was at the core of what we wanted to create. Our mantra throughout the design process was always: what is the most simple solution? When we started the project we had the vision to create a living space that would look humble but feel extremely vast and open. We really wanted the volumes and proportions to play with the surrounding nature as this is such an important element of why its owners chose this exact spot.”

I had to share another of Julie Hillman‘s projects because there were so many drool worthy spaces in her portfolio. This one is located in Bridgehampton, and though she embraced the typical beach theme for the area it’s really not that typical. Add in some very modern artwork, and some modern furnishings and lighting and you have another eclectic mix that she seems to ace.
I love love LOVE this East Hampton home designed by Julie Hillman. An eclectic mix of styles combined with the neutral colour palette of warm wood with white walls and some dark pieces really make this home comfortable and liveable yet dramatic and timeless.
Rising like a rocky outcrop on the sandy dunes this stylishly designed guesthouse at Yzerfontein, South Africa is an oasis of calm, a dark cave providing protection from the glare of the sunlight and howl of the wind while opening to the stunning sea views. Understated luxury perfect for a beach getaway. Olive Tree Villa by Gavin Maddock.
