I want to live here

While I am drawn to homes in the countryside, I could certainly be forced to live in this beautiful seaside home in the Hamptons designed by Brian Brady.

  • Neutral interiors popped with dark wood accents speaks to me.  The furniture frames anchor the bright space.  Without it the room could appear to be floating.
  • A single piece of statement making art is always appealing.  This painting of our American flag is subtle and beautiful and speaks to a beach house without being “themey”.  (not sure that is a real word??)
  • The simple window treatments are one of my favorites.  I prefer drapery panels with hidden hardware…just seems to let the treatment itself and, in this case, the view, take center stage without being interrupted by another design feature i.e. drapery rods and rings.
  • That view!  Large windows allow the view to become the artwork in the space.
  • The symmetry of the floor and table lamps and overall furniture arrangement is soothing.
  • A mis-matched collection of tables.  The easy way to design is to purchase a matching set of tables, lamps etc.  But a thoughtful selection of items is much more interesting, don’t you think?
  • This room would be just as beautiful without the ceiling light fixture.  But I think it adds an elegant and sparky finishing touch and must be breathtaking in the evenings.

How about you?  Is this a place you could live in?

About hayniedi

What about me? In a nutshell I am a middle-aged interior designer and freelance writer, mother of an amazing 27 year old daughter, wife to my semi-retired lawyer husband and step-grandma to two delicious babies. From my earliest memories I have been fascinated with interior decorating and love to share my passion for beautiful rooms with anyone who will listen. Join me on this blog as my husband and I enter our empty nest years and move back into the first home we bought when we were first married that has been a rental for the past 15 years. I will share our experience with remodeling as well as other ideas and thoughts that I hope will inspire you.
