I am back to work after a few weeks of unplugged time with my family. I am fully rested and motivated, with my head full of projects, and I am actually excited to get cracking!
I am kicking off the week with an inspiring Scandinavian-inspired getaway in The Hamptons, a popular holiday destination for affluent New York City residents (or pretty much anyone, really). The Amagansett house was designed by Jessica Helgerson and her team, in collaboration with TBD Architecture, with thoughtful attention to details and respect for the original building. The result is elegant yet comfortable, warm and inviting. I like the understated beachy feel going on.
The light-filled home looks serene and definitely hyggelig. The neutral palette consists of pale wood, white painted wood, handmade white tile, marble and brass. A careful blend of textures and materials add interest, and so does the mix of timeless Danish furniture and modern pieces. I spot a PP130 Circle chair and Sibast No. 8 dining chairs, a table and bench by Another Country, and the amazing Trapeze lighting series by Apparatus Studio. Simply beautiful.
And what to say about this fabulous outdoor space? I could sit there all day…
A lovely little home to keep the summer vibe alive! Enjoy.
