I think there is a misconception that New Yorkers only go to the Hamptons in the summer. While the Hamptons are lovely during the warmer months, they can be even better in the fall and winter when the crowds have left. If Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and her family don't spend weekends at their place on the North Shore year round, they really should. There was a great article in the October issue of The World of Interiors about how they renovated an additional house on an adjoining property they purchased. Interior designer Jesse Carrier and landscape designer Miranda Brooks decorated the new house and tamed land to better enjoy the out of doors. Again, I think all creative people thrive when they have a place to recharge their batteries every weekend so it seems no wonder that Anna Wintour has been at Vogue for over 20 years.
