Interior Design - The Hamptons Summer House

My April 2 post was about the quintessential English country house.  The Hamptons weekend summer house is arguably, the North American equivalent.  Habitually Chic had a lovely post this week about Aerin Lauder and her beautiful summer house situated in one of the exclusive Hamptons enclaves.  Aerin's summer house is relaxed, welcoming and understatedly elegant.  

The gardens are particularly exquisite with all those gorgeous flowers in full bloom.  The beauty of Aerin's house for me is in her liberal use of simple low maintenance materials like sisal, rattan, beach-grass, along with groupings of blue/white Chinoiserie porcelain, flora and fauna patterned fabrics, against a backdrop of white painted interiors and exteriors.  All of which are elements of the classic Hamptons summer house.  Use one or several of these elements to create your own summer oasis!

Aerin has a namesake life-style collection and a pop-up store in Southampton to assist you in setting the perfect Hamptons summer house
