Lauren Rottet + George Nelson in MTK

Montauk Mod: Retro Done Right A few years ago, designer Lauren Rottet had never been to the Hamptons. Today, she is the owner of one of Montauk’s most interesting and thoughtfully-outfitted homes. Attracted to the house’s provenance and its design integrity, she’s made her own revisions and added a new chapter to the story. Rottet was a Hamptons ‘newbie,’ but she’s no newcomer to design. Over the last 25 years, she has been lauded as Boutique Designer of the Year, Interiors Designer of the Year, and is in Women in Design Hall of Fame. Some of...

‘Marilyn Monroe ‘Swept Here’

Once you get “converted,” it’s hard to go back… Having lived in a converted carriage house, I can tell you that the charms and quirks of a converted space are incomparable. Nobody will ever confuse your home for another! This house, which has been featured in countless guides to the Hamptons, television and film spots, was part of a larger estate which has largely been preserved as Quail Hill Farm, an organic communal garden farm (read fancy farm and think about Martha Stewart and Gwyneth Paltrow showing up early to...

Impeccable Barn Style in the Hamptons

Impeccable Barn Style in the Hamptons

Don’t Change a Thing. This barn-style home leaves little to be desired. The owner purchased an existing home and adapted a small part of the footprint, while replacing the main area of the home with a post-and-beam barn constructed by a Connecticut barn builder. The goal was to create a serene, airy, and carefree environment that could combine intimate areas with warm entertaining space. Simple isn’t easy, so they say. But this house is a great example of pulling it off in style. Every amenity and comfort, but none of the clutter....

Take Me to Further Lane!

Swoonworthy Style with Maidstone Club Views Do you miss summers with the WASPy grandparents you never had, sipping juleps and padding around in loafers? Well maybe you should come with me on the best house tour EVER in East Hampton’s tony estate section on fabled Further Lane… I’ve always loved this type of tudor-styled cape-like cottage. When we went to visit, the Spring had given us a little pop of color at the entrance to the gravel drive and motorcourt. This living room has yet to be “greiged” by the next...

Pancakes Make the Man

Pancakes Make the Man

‘Have Mercy.’ Peach and Strawberry Summer Pancakes. These pancakes are so good they’ll make you experience an Uncle Jesse swoon. It’s a summer brunch ‘wow’ that will make you very popular, perfect for when you have houseguests at the beach or even if you just feel like a little ‘staycation’ that rivals any brunch you can have out and about. For me, pancakes are a vehicle for time travel. As a kid growing up in a blended/broken/refashioned family, one of my favorite stabilizing traditions was...
