Montauk is one of my favorite places to visit. When a client reached out with hopes of giving her Montauk home a much needed update, I was thrilled! Combining personal and traditional elements we created a beautiful, welcoming environment.
The Montauk House
Montauk has a soothing energy that instantly relaxes you. It was important for my client for her design to be sophisticated yet welcoming. We decided to feature a natural color palette to bring the outdoors in for a seamless transition.
The bathroom should be fresh and inviting; a place for privacy. Bathrooms are one of the major selling points of a home, and tend to have a lot of foot traffic. This bathroom’s wallpaper makes a statement without overwhelming the space. Rich, glossy tile and fresh grout make the backsplash pop and lead your eyes to shiny hardware. The mirror adds a contemporary, geometric touch; I love the simple detail of this mirror.
Living Room Design
My client’s Montauk house is close to the beach, which makes wicker the ultimate accent. The wicker coffee table and large area rug ground the design, while white accents add a fresh pop. Before we began mapping out the living room, my client emphasized that this was the room friends and family would spend a majority of their time in (aside from the kitchen, of course). Working with a neutral palette set the tone for relaxation, making the room the ultimate chill hangout.
Dining Room Design
One of my favorite ways to add glamour to a room is with custom wallcoverings. One of my favorite fabrics to work with is grasscloth, specifically from Phillip Jeffries! The Montauk house’s dining room featured gorgeous bay windows for maximum lighting, adding all the more to the wallpaper’s luster.
Once the house’s major rooms were outfitted, it was time for the bedroom. Because the majority of the house featured natural beiges and crisp whites, we decided the bedroom should be a little more eclectic. The ikat-inspired duvet cover is a bold black and white print we both loved instantly. Patterned sheets add a subtle mix of pattern play, while bedside accents are bursting with color. I loved this bedside table’s hardware and rich blue tone and thought it paired wonderfully with this acidic green lamp.
