Maximalism on the East End

an eclectic home on the Long Island shore

One of the best parts about my job is that flipping through magazines is part of our work day.  In public relations, you have to live and breath magazines. That means reading each shelter magazine (publications in the interior design and home space) cover to cover. However, luckily, this never feels like work! 

When I saw the cover of the July issue of Architectural Digest I was instantly enamored by the maximalism of patterns and color in this beautiful master bedroom. I quickly flipped to the back of the magazine to read the whole story.  This home in Long Island’s East End is a treasure trove of inspiration. Layers on layers of pattern fall together perfectly from room to room. The home, entitled Woody House, is a historic wooden home along the Atlantic Ocean. The homeowners enlisted the help of architects Peter Marino and Pietro Cicognani to elevate and upgrade the home while keeping the relaxed and layered interior. 

From one room to the next, I am continually in awe of the beautiful design of the home. So few people are able to layer patterns and textures while creating a cohesive design. But in this seaside home, the layers are pure perfection. 

The home is an expert from Jennifer Ash Rudick’s upcoming book, Out East: Houses and Gardens of the Hamptons, which is for sale on July 11th. If this space is a preview of the beautiful homes in the cocktail table book, I am surly already a fan. For one thing, it certinaly led me to quickly  pre-order the book on Amazon!
