What happens when you turn 24 design firms loose on a newly built house in Bridgehampton? The first-ever Holiday House Hamptons, presented by HC&G and benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Like the groundbreaking Holiday House show house in Manhattan, now in its sixth year, every room in the home is filled with dazzling design ideas and inspiring decor by top talents in the field. What’s more, there’s still time to take a tour, as the house is open through July 21 (go to holidayhousehamptons.com for tickets and more information). Meanwhile, take a sneak peek at the sensational spaces on the pages that follow.
Thom Filicia, Inc.
Relaxed, classic, and modern at the same time, with a sense of privacy and warmth that makes it feel like a retreat, decorator and television personality Thom Filicia’s design includes pieces from his new collection of furniture and fabric for Kravet. “I’ve dedicated this room to my mother, who passed away far too early from breast cancer,” he says. “She encouraged my creativity and motivated me to celebrate each day as if it were a holiday.”
Donna Livingston Design
At English Country Antiques, Livingston found a statement-making, oversize chandelier that holds its own in the voluminous 22-foot-high space. “The challenge was what to do with the paneled walls,” she says, “so I chose colorful artwork and a boldly patterned carpet.”
Mabley Handler Interior Design
“For anyone buying, building, and/or renovating a summer house in the Hamptons, the mantra is to be ‘in by Memorial Day,’” says the firm’s co-founder Austin Handler. “So our great room is designed as a soothing space to host a summer kickoff cocktail party.” Handler’s wife and business partner, Jennifer Mabley, adds: “Our room is in the center of the house, so we wanted it to make a statement, but not be too jarring. We hope the room is as memorable as it is welcoming and relaxing.”
Susan Glick Interiors
Silver wallpaper and shimmery tile create a “jewel box” effect; a shell-studded mirror, an occasional table, and a Kallista sink from Klaff’s provide a complementary circular motif.
Kitchen and breakfast room
“Summer is the best time of year for hosting friends and family,” says principal Jennifer Duneier. “I love to cook, so creating the space was fun for me, especially when it came to making the modern Arclinea cabinets and custom laser-cut backsplash look seamless with the house’s traditional architecture.”
