A Look Inside A Sophisticated Amagansett Beach House

The house is the primary residence of couple Jennifer Mable and Austin Handler, who wanted the interior of their home to say "beach house," but not "casual beach house." "So 'sophisticated beach' became our mantra," Mabley recalls. The clients favored a cool palette—pale oyster gray with a hint of blue—that for them recalls the ocean and sandy beaches on a misty day. "The serene palette was a parameter that helped us zero in on a look and style," Mabley says.
