Amagansett Airy Abode

This home, designed by Jarlath Mellett in Amagansett, screams summer miles away.  I love that it's airy, fresh, unpretentious and modern without standing too far from traditional design.  Also, the ceiling is breath taking.  Enjoy!
The bookcases as a background anchor the whole space.  Notice the circular window, such an appropriate nautical detail!
Chairs of different upholstery color combined with bold modern art says young active people live here to me. 
The letters in different sizes is a simple and even easy to replicate detail but it makes such an impact and artistic touch.

The Fifth Wall

I have long been a fan of decorative ceilings as have most decorators I know.  I am so thrilled that the public is really grabbing hold of this look.  You can make a powerful statement or subtle one by using an often overlooked plane.


Albert Hadley used an iridescent paint technique to create a dramatic and almost hologram or tea paper effect thereby bringing light into an otherwise dark room.

Rooms enveloped in all the same color can be striking ~  in that the lines are blurred.  Where do the walls end and the ceiling begin?  It makes a room look larger or extends the height of a ceiling, not to mention how dramatic it is.

The trim delineates the space beautifully but still envelopes you in coziness

You can really see with this mural how the boundaries of the room have disappeared

They certainly don't have to be the same color.  There's a huge wow factor in a more unexpected approach.  Note that the color on the ceiling relates to the room as a whole.  The color is repeated somewhere.

Wallpaper has made a big comeback, and applying it to the ceiling makes perfect sense.  I love this look! Designers are challenging old rules.  Look how dynamite this looks in a kitchen.

Texture can be compelling too.  Grasscloth, mica, and plaster all make this often overlooked fifth wall vibrant and thought of, not overlooked like it sometimes can.  There is the case for leaving the ceiling white in a lot of instances, but that's for another post.

Beautiful modern handcrafted furniture

Comerford Collection is a really beautiful and colorful store in Bridgehampton, New York.  They offer their own line of modern furniture that is handmade by order and can be customized to your taste and preference.  I loved the mixture of modern furniture with the abundance of art throughout the space.  Enjoy!
Love love the sculptural lines of these dining chairs.
All images taken by me!

You can own an Hermes vintage tray

While walking in South Hampton two weeks ago I went into Old Town Crossing, a beautiful home store with fantastic antiques.  Huge was my surprise when I ran across these more than chic trays.  They are re-editions made in England and hand painted, either sold separately or with the stand.  There is a different style for everyone, as seen below, but equally chic!
