For Designer Campion Platt, a Humble Bungalow on the Water Is the Key to Summertime Fun

For Designer Campion Platt, a Humble Bungalow on the Water Is the Key to Summertime Fun

Most people would guess that the home of an architect and interior designer is always the biggest and baddest on the block. Not so when it comes to Campion Platt. Nestled in a neighborhood of iron-gated fortresses in the heart of Water Mill, the waterfront bungalow that he shares with his wife, Tatiana, and their three children is anything but amped up. “We’re the last holdouts,” he says. “We’re like the Clampetts!”

The last thing we need is another blue-and-white plate,” proclaims fashion designer Dennis Basso, describing his most recent purchase, a full set of Royal Copenhagen plates, bought while he was vacationing in Amsterdam with his husband, Michael Cominotto, in July. But as any collector will readily acknowledge, more is more. The couple’s home in Water Mill is proof positive: an unerringly tasteful repository of carefully curated tableware, serving pieces, and linens from their travels to far-flung locales. “We just love collecting beautiful things from around the world.”

Even though this Sagaponack house is just steps from the ocean, you won’t find any sand on the kitchen floor. Or wet beach towels in a pile next to a screen door, or flip-flops by a hose. None of the scraps of summer can be found here, because this house isn’t a part-time beach escape, but rather a year-round, sophisticated home for a couple who came to the conclusion that weekends were just not enough.
