To decorate a beachfront home in Amagansett, interior designer Brad Ford simply looked to the ocean for inspiration.

With their trademark being a fresh, contemporary take on traditional design, decorators Suysel dePedro Cunningham and Anne Maxwell Foster made their name by employing bold colors and patterns in even the most mundane spaces. Then came a third leap of faith: a client who had just purchased an artist’s loft downtown and wanted to turn it into a warm, kid-friendly environment for her young family.

To transform their historic house effortlessly and elegantly, a Bridgehampton couple hires the decorator of their dreams.
