At the end of last week I ventured out to the Hamptons to visit a project I’m working on. It’s a bit of an adventure getting there from Boston- first te big ferry from New London then two little ferries to shuttle you across Long Island itself. It’s a BEAUTIFUL drive and if I had the time, I would have just explored for hours and hours. Especially little Shelter Island. It’s a bit more quaint than some of the other parts of the Hamptons and my only experience there was waitressing one summer in college at a hotel there for three whole days before quitting and going home. It was a bit Bates Motel and I just was beyond creeped out. But now I’d like to go back and see more of it. Certainly there is a lot of style out there- one spread in the new House & Home particularly piqued my interest. So here are a bunch of images from projects all over Shelter Island…..
Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan have a big place on Shelter…. talk about cool neighbors!
Andre Balazs’ Sunset Beach is THE spot to dine, drink and stay.
As I was driving around I was getting whiplash trying to peek at all the homes- specifically the ones that had for sale signs outside. Like this one. OHMYGOD the potential!!!!! All those white beams! An outbuilding (office??)! Gaaaahhhhh!
