HOUSE LOVE: DREAM HOUSE IN THE HAMPTONS

Have you guys seen the newest issue of Elle Decor? I'm still drooling over the cover, a shot of the living room of a Manhattan couple's Hamptons home. Designed by architect, Timothy Haynes and interior designer, Kevin Roberts, the entire space is enchanting. I would give my left arm to stay a night there, let alone all summer long, every year.

When the design planning began, the couple said they "envisioned a home filled with contemporary art, color, vintage and antique furnishings, and a dash of sparkle. It took 4 years to totally complete the project, but I would say they turned their vision into reality.

 It's such a great house for entertaining. The living room is huge and incorporates a bunch of different seating areas. I am so obsessed with the stone on the fireplace surround. I've seen it before in a bathroom and have coveted it ever since. I also think I need that letter sculpture by Doug Aitken.

Such a great idea to arrange two sectionals in a U shape but leave a space to get in. Looks so cozy.

Just look at that view.

The couple said in the article that it was important to have a dining room that could fit 25 people to Thanksgiving dinner. Looks like that request was addressed. Those sconces by Hervé Van der Straeten are amazing! Large scale metal artwork is by Jim Lambie.

Here's a shot of the wife's office. Love the coffee table, chandelier and fabric on the sofa.

Who wouldn't want to wake up in this master bedroom? It's so serene and beautiful.

This is a shot of the sitting room attached to the master bedroom. Can't help but notice all the lucite details - magazine rack, ottoman legs and end table. I live for lucite!

How fun is the daughter's bedroom? I'm sure there have been some seriously epic slumber parties  in there.

Great spot for al fresco dining in the pool pavilion. Love that fabric on the chair cushions!

The kitchen in the pool pavilion is to die for! The high gloss blue cabinets are custom-made and look so fab next to the honed Thassos and Atlantic Blue marble floor.

The entire home is so beautiful. I'm sure I'll be dreaming about it for months.
