“Our inspiration for our multilayered space derives from a combination of the Hamptons landscape and a recent trip to Paris and Amsterdam,” says firm principal Antonio DeLoatch, Jr. “We wanted the entry foyer to ignite the senses,” thanks in part to a large Vaughan chandelier, custom plinths, and a sleek portal mirror that lend “interest and a subtle modern touch,” which carries through to the upper landing, hallway, and first-floor powder room. These areas, DeLoatch comments, “are truly the heart of the home.” The chairs in the foyer and and bench in the upper landing are from Lee Industries.

Ciuffo Cabinetry and Michelle Gerson Interiors

For the kitchen, Gary Ciuffo of Ciuffo Cabinetry collaborated with interior designer Michelle Gerson to create a retro-inspired space that’s “current and chic, and different from a typical kitchen,” Ciuffo says, “but with neutral colors and a beachy feel appropriate to the East End.” Wall paint by Badilla Painters, state-of-the-art kitchen appliances from JennAir via P.C. Richard & Son, countertops from Cosentino, and an island sink and fixtures by Kohler emphasize the prevailing vision, further setting it apart from the “expected all-white modern Hamptons environment.”

Designer Michelle Gerson was inspired by “Jean Prouvé and his porthole doors from the 1950s, brought up to date with a more modern materials palette of lacquer, bronze, and walnut.”

With custom Artistic Frame chairs surrounding a custom Claize dining table from Aronson Woodworks, she adds, “the ‘vintage meets today’s vibe’ comes together.” The curtains are by Donghia.

“I am a person who loves beige and creams and neutrals,” says designer Mikel Welch, “so I decided to stretch outside my comfort zone with lots of color, along with greenery to create a theatrical moment.” Notable furnishings include a Lee Industries daybed and host chair and a concrete dining table by Blank Slate Studio.

“As an art lover, I always want to include artwork in a project,” interior designer Cristiana Mascarenhas says about the living room, which she created with “a young art collector in mind, someone who would want to relax and enjoy their pieces of art.” A wall covering by Porter Teleo complements a sofa and chairs by Heritage Brazil.

Cami Weinstein Designs, LLC

Butler’s Pantry

Firm principal Cami Weinstein endeavored to “take the concept of a traditional butler’s pantry and create a little jewel box that would not only be functional, displaying serving and dining pieces and barware, but also include decorative items, making the space an integral part of the home’s design.” Cabinetry by Ciuffo Cabinetry, countertops by Cosentino, sink and fixtures by Kohler, beverage center by JennAir via P.C. Richard & Son, a wall covering from Sarah Von Dreele, and Freya Knobs from Matthew Studios further “elevate this space and make it unique. How can you not feel glamorous making cocktails here?”

Dining Room

For the dining room, interior designer Elissa Grayer was inspired by “spring and summer flowers and greenery—the privet hedges, pink peonies, white daisies, and purple Nepeta seen all over the Hamptons.” Accordingly, Fromental’s Ogata wall covering in Forest Green and “organic furniture and artwork echo the outdoors and bring the outside into this garden-like room.” Benches from Lee Industries flank the dining table, while the chandelier and table lamps are from Vaughan.

People flock to the Hamptons for any number of reasons, including the Hampton Classic, an annual show-jumping competition sponsored by HC&G. “We originally found the horse blanket in our travels and then sought out additional pieces to complement it,” LGC Interiors principal Lori Miller says of her horsey-set theme for the mudroom. A Vaughan chandelier further enhances the space.

Miller, a multiple showhouse vet, adds that she loves the opportunity to “collaborate with talented artists and support the community.” The space includes a lighting fixture and mirror from Kohler and tiles from Nemo Tile and Stone.

Interior decorator Maureen McDermott reports that she had a lot of fun “playing with the shapes and textures of Dedon’s BRIXX collection to create intimate groupings that are equal parts geometry and design.” The result is a space that accommodates “a few small groups for cocktails just as easily as a large party sprawled across the entire space.” Outdoor lighting on the home’s exterior is from BEVOLO Gas & Electric Lights.

Interior designer Danielle Chiprut thinks of the covered terrace and side porch as a “jeweled veranda, inviting you to slow down and savor your surroundings, to enjoy the raw beauty of natural materials and an artful narrative inspired by them.” The tie that binds? Sumptuous Calacatta Capraia marble and its striking striations of “vibrant emerald green, indigo blue, and deep berry,” a color palette evident on the walls, area rugs from Loloi, and a custom marble table (topped with a bowl from Four Hands). For the covered terrace, the designer chose pendants and a fixture from Arteriors and refurbished the hanging chairs from CB2 with a McLaurin & Piercy fabric. On the side porch, lighting is from BEVOLO Gas & Electric Lights and the chairs, planters, and accessories are from Four Hands.

Collette Home founder Tisha Collette describes her outdoor kitchen as “a casual, eco-chic space that mixes modern and earthy materials for a naturally inspired environment. Here, both culinary and aesthetic palettes can be satisfied at the same time.” The outdoor kitchen’s countertops are by Cosentino, while lighting by BEVOLO Gas & Electric Lights on the home’s exterior illuminates the space. Furnishings from Royal Botania commingle with upcycled pieces to lend a sense of “lightness and elegance.”

“The primary bedroom is designed for the homeowner with a coastal lifestyle who is aware of how furnishings, fabrics, and finishes can impact their health and well-being and the Earth,” says Sea Green Designs principal Shannon Willey. The fireplace in this dreamy space is complete with stone from Cosentino.

Artworks that “immediately connect you to the sea” and sundeck furnishings by Fermob further underscore the allure of “the natural environment on Long Island’s East End.”

A new line of satin-brass bath fittings from Kohler made designer Susanne Kelley think of the “golden age of Hollywood,” a theme she decided to embrace further with “gold accents and hand-painted gold-leaf on the walls.” More glamour comes courtesy of a high-gloss finish and brass inserts on the Ciuffo Cabinetry vanity and accessories from English Country Home. The primary bath includes Nemo Tile on the floor, plumbing fixtures from Kohler, and countertops from Cosentino.

Downstairs, the lower-level powder room also boasts gold fixtures and a smart toilet from Kohler. The floor and walls make a statement with Nemo Tile + Stone and a Fromental wallcovering, respectively.

Oxford Design Studio

Bedroom and Bath

Along with design colleague Tate Casper, Oxford Design Studio’s Jordan Winston “wanted to pay homage to the casual, yet sophisticated historic Hamptons homes that emerged alongside the local fishing villages in years past, so we worked with a palette of demure blues and soft greens, as well as neutral linens that evoke laid-back luxury.” But there’s an element of surprise here, too: a Louis XVI canapé from Objects of Desire and a collection of late-1800s French bamboo mirrors that “create a quirky dynamic.” The nightstand lamps are from Vaughan.

In the ensuite bath, Oxford Design Studio continued the historic nautical theme with original artwork and accessories to complement the Kohler fixtures and Nemo Tile featured in the design.

“As the mother of a cancer survivor,” says designer Nina Edwards Anker, “I chose the theme of wellness to create a healing space, emphasizing all-natural, nontoxic materials. Recent research initiatives prove that biophilic design helps patients heal faster, and this room aims to illustrate that through its emphasis on health and well-being.”

Wallpaper from Fromental makes a statement in the bedroom and carries into the bathroom, where tile is from Nemo and the fixtures and vanity are from Kohler.

“Vacation” was the driving force behind interior designer Sarah Regan’s bedroom. “I imagined the client walking into this space and exhaling with an ‘Ahh, I’ve arrived’ feeling,” she says, “the kind one gets when finally getting to a vacation destination.” Window fabric by Stroheim, lamps from Vaughan, a painting by Marshall Crossman, and custom furnishings including a Fabricut bed, a Charles Stewart armchair, and a Prestige/Stark carpet work together to create a “polished, cheerful, soothing” environment.

The ensuite bathroom, which features Nemo Tile, shares the same refreshing feeling.

Interior designers Celeste Sullivan and Jacqui Eaton-Garland based their room design on “the Renaissance man, interested in living life to the fullest, someone who is cultured, successful, and well-traveled and loves music, sports, and the limelight.” The custom bar by T. Michaels Contracting and drunk-monkey wall covering suggest both “a sense of humor and love of a stiff one.” The jute rug, lambskin rug, and Wyatt Bench are from Four Hands. Window treatments are by Hunter Douglas.

Textured hand-painted walls and trim featuring Badilla Painters’ proprietary ChromeableNY and liquid metal finishes, along with a custom pool table from Blatt Billiards give an undeniably metallic sheen to designer Melanie Roy’s lower-level lounge/billiards room. Adding additional pizzazz: A Fromental wallpaper on the ceiling, Vaughan sconces, a John Procario light sculpture from Todd Merrill Studio and a Rondo mirror from Zieta Studio, as “playful and whimsical as they are elegant.”

To create this “weekend hangout room,” interior designer Kerry Delrose chose cowhide stools from Lee Industries, lamps from Vaughan, a coffee table from Homenature, and a vintage games table from John Salibello. A custom bar by Ciuffo Cabinetry is complete with Cosentino countertops and JennAir appliances through P.C. Richard & Son. “There’s no better place to grab a drink!” the designer says, adding that “it’s fun to work with a whole group of designers who are decorating rooms any way they wish. As the runways are to the fashion world, showhouses are the place for designers to innovate and try new ideas.”

Clinton Smith Studio

Bedroom and Bath

Based on a “beautiful striped kilim, along with various shades of dark pinks that appear to have been reds and may have faded over time,” Clinton Smith’s bedroom is dripping with poetic appeal, including furnishings and lighting by Vaughan that create a “Mediterranean vibe, particularly the Aegean,” the designer says. “All the furniture pieces in the room intentionally have a lightness to them, so you feel as though you could be sitting on a deck somewhere overlooking the sea. I wanted the space to feel transportive.”

The ensuite bathroom, which uses Nemo Tile, complements the bedroom’s blue hues. The space is complete with a vanity and fixtures from Kohler.

“Carol Channing famously said, ‘When you have guest bedrooms, you have a lot of guests,’” designer Keith Baltimore says with a laugh. “So for this bedroom, I decided to create a place just to be, a place to run away to and disconnect and meditate.” The tranquil getaway is enhanced with gorgeous furnishings by Four Hands and a wall covering by Fromental, which call to mind “Matisse-like shapes that seem to dance across the room.”

Puccio Fine Art

“We wanted people to stop, look, think, and engage with the artwork” hanging in this space, says artist and Puccio Fine Art gallery founder Lucia Giudice, who compiled a striking array of Surrealist and contemporary works by artists ranging from Salvador Dalí, Giorgio De Chirico, and Max Ernst to Vik Muniz and KAWS. “There’s a lot of history on display here!”
