Hamptons Living

Every summer, I come out to the Hamptons for work. The last 3 summers we have stayed in different areas, each gorgeous in their own ways. This year is different in that we are only out for a short visit (4 days rather than 4 weeks) and that we are staying right on the ocean in South Hampton.

So I hope you will all forgive me for this very late update, but my day has been filled with packing, travel, settling in, and trying to soak up some of this beautiful place.

As this month is "Inspiration Month" here on the blog, I thought it would fit in perfectly to show you my gorgeous accommodations. (Not what I initially planned on showing you, but what the hey!)

This space has been completely inspired by the sea. From the white washed furniture, to the reflective surfaces (like the sun glistening off of the water), to the sea-star & shell pieces. Might I say, that it is simply stunning?

 It is quite the cozy retreat! But who stays in their room while they are in a gorgeous ocean-front oasis? Not me (if I can help it!). Here is a view of our journey here, and where some inspiration could easily come from:

The view from the ferry boat.

The scenery along the way.

Hopefully I will have more inspiration to draw from by the time we head home from this place.

I find that I draw a lot of my inspirations from nature... be it through color combinations, or textural ideas, etc. Do you find yourself returning to the same old, same old, for inspiration? What piques your interest, and makes you want to surround yourself in it's beauty?

Have you taken any fun trips, business or pleasure, this summer that have tickled your fancy?

Happy designing! I hope you all take some time out of your day to smell the roses seek inspiration in the nature that surrounds your day-to-day routine.

  1. I've always intended that the hallway bath would be in a beach theme, but the more time we spend at the beach, the more it creeps into the rest of the house. It's very refreshing. I like greens and tans too...
