I've been lucky enough to take not one, but two work trips out to the ends of Long Island within the last month. First I visited Montauk for a photo shoot at the home of Ben Watts (you can read my article in the July/August issue of Lonny.) These are some details from Watts' home that I was really into:
Watts' home was so gorgeous, awash in natural light and full of sophisticated textures and layers—definitely feeding into my rustic-whitewashed-Scandi fetish. I made a return trip to the area to cover the Holiday House Hamptons (read my '12 Inspired Design Moments' here.) It was a very trad space, but there were some details worth relishing:
And I also got to sneak in a brief trip to Sag Harbor's Monc XIII (details in Lonny's June issue.) Created by the former president of Wilhelmina Models, Natasha Esch, the space is crazy beautiful and the perfect antidote if you're suffering Hamptons prep overload. (FYI: the ceramics next to the tree, below, is actually from the Holiday House, but I think it looks best next to that chair!)
