Malcolm Carfrae’s Hamptons Cottage

Hey there, everyone — happy Monday!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Ours was really nice; there was a party for Greyson’s last day of work on Saturday, which was a blast, and then he and I went out on a date last night.  We saw ‘Gone Girl,’ which is not for those who spook easily, but it was really good!  I read the book several months ago and devoured it, so it was nice to see it turned into a crazy good adaptation.  We went out for sushi afterward — our favorite date night meal.  🙂

A few weeks ago I was looking through an old Elle Decor magazine and I stumbled upon a feature of the most beautiful and serene Hamptons cottage I’ve seen in a long time.  It belongs to Malcolm Carfrae, the head of communications of Calvin Klein, and I just had to share it with you today.  It’s super elegant and not at all fussy — my favorite combination.  Let’s take a look inside!

I’m in love with this paint color, first of all.  It’s blue-y gray and so reminiscent of the sea without being a typical blue beach house color.

Really pretty neutrals in this guest room and plenty of texture.  I also love the added drama with the white lamps and black lampshades.

How cute is this kitchen?  I love the mix of old and new, sleek and country-chic.

Texture everywhere — the only way to properly do neutrals like this.  Lots to appreciate in this room.

Monochromatic and completely relaxed.  I love the little zest of purple with the flowers — just enough to throw your eye around the space in a really interesting way.

This is the pool house — and there is a little bit of a different vibe in here.  Slightly rustic-contemporary-and-industrial.  A bit of all of those elements becomes pleasingly eclectic and really comfortable and fun.

What do you think of this house?  Do you have a favorite room?
