A Place in the Hamptons










This may be my favorite issue of Elle Decor yet and I have been receiving this magazine for years. I absolutely adored the sneak peek into Meg Ryan's summer home on all my favorite blogs, but once I actually received the issue I was elated with Timothy Whealons summer home in the Hamptons. He made the purchase on a snap decision and had to redo the whole place. I think he did a mighty fine job, so much so that I keep on rereading the article and keep on studying all the pretty pictures. I simply can not put it down.

i've never been to the hamptons but the exterior of the home reminds me of nantucket summers — and that pool! combine swimming and elephants and i'm there.

I have house envy! I love those raised garden beds in his front yard. My sister has something similar, but hers have herbs growing in them. I currently have weeds ... lots of them! :/

Love this issue too and this home. His work is so diverse - remember that colourful home he did in Domino with the pink walls and the cute family?

I love this place. I'm reading a Candace Bushnell book right now and she refers to the Hamptons pretty often. Great visuals!

Yes please, I will take everything. I agree, Elle Decor blew it out of the park! Love the diamond floor and elephants by the pool!

His house is what I think of when I think of the Hamptons. He did an AMAZING job, didn't he?

Oh yeah...I think I could *maybe* handle living there.

Why do I not have a subscription yet!? I even leave those subscription cards for the magazine in my husbands cabinet hoping he will get the hint! I guess I'm gonna have to buy it for myself :) I love all the blues and browns in this issue.

Gramercy Home said...

This house did it to me too...I love everything in it and it makes me so happy. One of the better spreads of late...

doug @ tracery interiors said...

I am ridiculously obsessed with the exterior of that house...I think it's my new "when I get my act together and build a house someday" plan...for now. Always like Timothy Whealon's work.

Terri said...

Yep, I'd definitely take this house... I love it! I'm not sure what my favorite element is... the bed, the deck with all that fantastic seating, or the pool. I think the elephants may sway me!

Stacy of KSW said...

Wow, Wow, Wow! I love it, I think I saved every image to my someday folder. Thanks so much for sharing. Now I have to send you the pics of the stools I've been trying to decide on for my breakfast bar - you've posted photos with both versions and now I'm dying for your opinion on which to get. I'll send them your way soon

What a gorgeous home. I love it all. Wow, it's only a summer home, maybe he'd house swap me... Ha ha... A girl can dream, right?
