Terry & Shawn 's Homey Modernism

Name: Terry & Shawn
Location: Amagansett, New York

In the lush woods adjacent to scenic Gardiner's Bay, our white clapboard and glass home represents a casual and eclectic mix of mid-century finds. We steered clear of a sterile take on modernism, and opted for homey shapes, textures, materials and tones that celebrated the woods and shades indigenous to our locale and favorite period of the 50's & 60's.

Shades of sun-dappled leafy green are pervasive. Period commercial art and "Hollywood at home" photography adorn the walls. A Robesjohn Gibbings sofa and Bruno Matheson chairs living comfortably with IKEA pieces and yard sale "steals."

The mood is one of ease, comfort and wit that provides a ticklish respite from the shabby-chic aesthetic that has come to narrowly define the Hamptons style.

Thanks Terry & Shawn!
