This Weekend Home in Amagansett, New York Reflects an Elevated, Oceanside Vibe
After purchasing a 2-acre lot in the Hamptons—within walking distance to the beach—a New York City couple with college-aged children turned to designer, Monica Fried, for advice on envisioning their oceanside retreat.
Spread over approximately 7,000 square feet, the modern new build by Thomas Heine Architect and Cardel Development features an open-plan living area on the ground floor sans formal walls, allowing one room to flow seamlessly into the next. The large entry and living room meld into the kitchen, dining area and family room while an L-shape shows off the pool in the interior courtyard, which is framed by a pool house on the opposite side. The private spaces for the family occupy the upper level while a full basement comprises a room with bunk beds as well as a gym.
With such close proximity to the ocean, Fried drew inspiration from the natural landscape, introducing a palette of blues, ivories and sand tones, which happen to be the homeowners’ favorite colors. To bring interest and texture into the space while adding warmth, the designer turned to a mix of natural oak for the window frames, doors, and ceiling details. Stone and marble accents add more visual interest, drawing attention to the fireplace, as does the Christophe Delcourt Lek sofa coated in a Geiger fabric in the living room.
“The vibe is modern with a mix of organic and vintage, which is something we like to bring to every project,” says Fried, noting that all the furnishings were designed or purchased specifically for the home. Inviting and relaxed yet sophisticated and timeless, this coastal refuge has everything the homeowners have always dreamed of—and more.
