There is nothing I love more than peaking into the Hampton homes of fabulous New Yorkers. It makes me want to work harder so I can have a place to getaway from the city every weekend and the Bridgehampton home of legendary advertising guru Trey Laird and his family is no different. It looks soothing and relaxing but is certainly not boring probably because they collaborated with interior designer Jeffrey Bilhuber, a legend in his own right!
The Louis XVI bergère is upholstered in Rubelli's Samos and the sofa and Basics slipper chair, both by Bilhuber, are in Rogers & Goffigon fabrics, see more below. The antique limestone mantel is from A&R Asta.
In the living room of the main house, the Breck sofa is a Bilhuber design upholstered in a Travers linen, the curtain fabric is by Création Baumann, and the ceiling is painted with Benjamin Moore's Cloud Cover.
The Moroccan table in the library was found at a Paris flea market and the wool carpet is by Beauvais. The sofa was designed by Jeffrey Bilhiber. I also love the Elizabeth Peyton piece on the bookshelf. Jenny Laird was an art dealer and her taste is impeccable!
Maya Romanoff paper sheathes the library walls, and Bilhuber's Bridgewater sofa is upholstered with a Création Baumann linen-cotton.
In the study, the desk is by Mecox Gardens and the chair is by Pottery Barn. The walls are covered in a Raoul Textiles linen and the ceiling in Albert Hadley's Trixie wallpaper for Hinson, a fun contrast.
The dining table is a flea-market find and the mahogany server is Victorian. The floors are espresso-stained American walnut.
The quilt in the guest room is from Calypso Home, one of my favorite stores to find interesting textiles and furniture. The bed skirt is made of Michael Devine's Petite Fleur linen and the print is by Jean Pagliuso. The walls are painted with Benjamin Moore's Hancock Green.
In the master bedroom, the grass-cloth wall covering is by Designtex and a painting by Robert Bordo hangs above the mantel.
The master bathroom's antique stool is from Mecox Gardens, the wainscoting is painted with Benjamin Moore's White Dove, a favorite color among all designers and the one I used in the Bachelor Pad. The tiles are by Urban Archaeology.
