Beachy Hamptons House - Part 1

Stylish Neutrals

Contemporary Beach Vibe

Textures, natural materials and a hint of color makes this breezy beach pad chic and stylish.

This wonderful beach cottage belongs to New York-based interior designer Jenny Wolf Interiors. Located in East Hampton, New York, it is her family's weekend retreat from busy, city life. The home was originally a dingy, shingle-clad home built in the early 1900s, not exactly what the designer and her family had in mind when they went house hunting in the Hamptons, but they fell in love with the beautiful gardens. The designer got to work on the renovations, taking six weeks to re-create their dream house. The goal was to make the home feel more spacious without creating an addition. There was originally an attic in the home, which was removed, allowing for higher, exposed vaulted ceilings. The ceiling joists were also left exposed in the main living areas of the first floor living and dining rooms to allow for increased ceiling height. Natural light was increased by adding a more expansive passageway between the living and dining areas. Luminosity was also increased with a fresh coat of crisp white paint throughout the interior. In contrast, the flooring in the main living spaces, with the exception of the kitchen, was coated with a serene shade of green. The palette of soothing neutrals creates a relaxed and calming environment. The exposed brick, painted timber wall panelling and the rustic timber ceilings all add warmth and character to this stylish coastal abode. To see the rest of the house pop by tomorrow.
