We wanted the interiors to add warmth and function to the house, in a subtle and unforced way. With less is more, every object must fit perfectly and feel just right – so, many of the pieces were custom made or painstakingly sourced from small furniture makers.

Ultimately, the goal with any project is to do more with less, and that was a guiding principle here – a year-round beach house should feel light, warm and welcoming, never fussy or forced. For a family of six with a rotating door of friends and family the house needed to feel stylish but unpretentious, so we chose materials to ground the design in relaxed luxury. We gravitated toward natural, locally sourced materials: shingles, which are a Hamptons staple, clear cedar siding, glass, mahogany decks, cable railing systems with metal steps and bluestone patios. That’s a large part of why the home feels instantly familiar and comfortable as soon as you step inside the door.
