SIXTH SENSE

WHEN THE ANNUAL HAMPTONS DESIGN GUIDE WAS LAUNCHED SEVERAL YEARS ago, we never could have guessed that it would become the juggernaut it is today. Chock-full of information and advice for making your way through the wondrous and occasionally perplexing worlds of decorating, architecture, real estate, and landscape design, it’s tailor-made for both consumers and design professionals who are looking for or moving into a new home, building a dream house of their own, getting down to the fun stuff (decorating!), or simply on the hunt for excellent shopping resources on the East End. This sixth annual edition will keep you up-todate and informed so that you can make wise decisions as you move into sometimes uncharted territory. If you are not sure whether to rent or to buy, if you tend to become confused by the difference between annuals and perennials or natives and nonnatives, and if you find yourself scratching your head over the pros and cons of using marble or porcelain tile in the kitchen and bath, we’ve got the answers from some of the industry’s top experts. Additionally, our “Ultimate Shopping Guide” (page 158) is updated every year, so you can shop with abandon all the way from Gabreski Airport to the lighthouse on the tip of Montauk. Hold on to this guide and tuck it into your bag for safekeeping—it will be dog-eared before you know it!

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR TOM MCWILLIAM 24 THE HAMPTONS DESIGN GUIDE 2023

HALF AND HALF

SO GREAT IS THE DEMAND FOR THE HAMPTONS DESIGN GUIDE THAT EVERY COPY

would be gone in a week if we didn’t hold back half the distribution till mid-season. Accordingly, the first drop of this brand-new 2023 edition arrives in tandem with a celebratory reveal on May 5 at Nemo Tile + Stone in Water Mill, where most of the advertisers and contributing design professionals who are featured within will be in attendance. Anticipation is high as we wait for the copies to arrive, and then everyone races through the pages to find their coverage.

The second release, on July 1, will be distributed at familiar locations where you can always find the latest issue of HC&G. So why is The Hamptons Design Guide in such demand? Because it introduces design professionals to one another as well as to Hamptons homeowners, many of whom are still relatively new to the market and eagerly welcome this guide, as it’s brimming with contacts and advice about designing and decorating homes on the East End. And, of course, there’s “The List,” a comprehensive tally of all the design professionals whose work has been featured in HC&G during the past year, as well as the winners and finalists of the 2022 Hamptons Innovation in Design Awards.

If, on the off chance, you can’t find a copy, remember that you can read the guide online or buy your own print edition by going to cottagesgardens. com/getmycopy. Enjoy!

FEATURING:

Amaden Gay Agencies

FROM “THE 2022 HC&G INNOVATION IN DESIGN AWARDS,” SEPTEMBER 2022. PHOTOGRAPH BY MATTHEW CARBONE. 33 COTTAGESGARDENS.COM

IS A FIXER-UPPER WORTH THE INVESTMENT?

“For sure. It’s an opportunity to get into a fabulous location at a lower price and realize your dream.” —Ann Ciardullo

“Redoing a fixer-upper requires a lot of thought and presents unique challenges. If you’re buying for yourself, go slowly and think wisely.” —Keith Green

“It depends on the entry price and the location, plus the cost to fix it up. And whether you plan on holding on to it for a while or flipping it.” —Pat Garrity

OUR PANEL OF EXPERTS

Ann Ciardullo

Sotheby’s International Realty

Pat Garrity

The Corcoran Group

Keith Green

Sotheby’s International Realty

Stacy Meyrowitz

Douglas Elliman Real Estate

Bill Williams Compass

“To do fixer-uppers, you need to have what I call a sharp pencil: Always try to buy materials at bulk to get a discount and do as much work as you can to save on labor costs. And get as much help and education as you can from your town to make sure that what you’re doing meets code.”

34 THE HAMPTONS DESIGN GUIDE 2023
—Bill Williams
“Fixer-uppers make a lot of sense, but only if you have an eye and the time for executing sensible home improvements.”
YOUR HAMPTONS DREAM HOME
—Stacy Meyrowitz

WHAT ARE THE CURRENT TRENDS IN HOME DESIGN?

“Screened porches are the best investment you can put on a house, especially if you’re near the water. They’re much better than tennis courts, since people usually play at their club with friends. Screened porches, especially heated ones, can become an extra room.” —Bill Williams

“Nowadays, people are looking for well-built four-season properties in the Hamptons— places they can use in the winter, spring, summer, and fall. The days of casual summer homes are over.” —Keith Green

35 COTTAGESGARDENS.COM
“New construction is the No. 1 sought-after product— even more so than location. And in terms of colors, white, white, and more white is still the way to go.” —Pat Garrity
TRIA GIOVAN (JUNE 2020)
“People are stepping away from gas stoves and going to electric ones.” —Bill Williams

WHAT MAKES A HOUSE “SHOW WELL”?

“The house should look as vanilla as possible so buyers can picture themselves living there. That means no family pictures or trinkets from faraway places.” —Ann Ciardullo

“Get rid of clutter and invest in minor landscaping for curb appeal.” —Stacy

“First impressions really do count. When you drive up, you want it to be a wow: landscaping, a walkway, fencing. And cleanliness is so important. With rentals, one of the first things clients do is open the fridge— so make sure it’s clean.” —Bill

Meyrowitz
Williams
“Some people have an old 1950s ranch in great shape but not decorated well, and they think they can get the same price as brand-new construction, but it doesn’t work that way. Sellers need to listen to the demands of the market.”
36 THE HAMPTONS DESIGN GUIDE 2023 YOUR HAMPTONS DREAM HOME TOP: READ MCKENDREE (SEPTEMBER 2022); BOTTOM: ANTHONY CRISA FULLI (SEPTEMBER 2022)
—Pat Garrity

WHAT ARE DEALBREAKERS FOR CLIENTS NOW?

“Before listing, homeowners should have all their permits in place. Many a deal has fallen apart when a buyer discovers that the Certificate of Occupancy is not up to date and work needs to be done in order to get a new Certificate of Occupancy.” —Pat Garrity

“There are no dealbreakers, just issues that need to be resolved. We always tell buyers and sellers to be kind to each other—that’s how deals get done.”

—Keith Green

TOP FIVE WHAT CLIENTS WANT NOW

1. “Energy-efficient construction and finished basements.”

—Stacy Meyrowitz

2. “Beautiful outdoor kitchens.”

—Ann Ciardullo

3. “En suite bedrooms, and bedrooms on the first floor.” —Pat Garrity

4. “Pickleball courts. They’re the most popular thing in the world right now!”

“Issues concerning wetlands and setbacks. People sometimes put up a fence over the property line, or the setbacks are too close to the property line. And additions without permits and sheds on properties that don’t meet code can be problematic— sometimes, there’s nowhere to put the shed.” —Bill Williams

—Keith Green

5. “Contemporary houses with flat-top roofs and decks on them— particularly near the ocean.”

—Bill

“Same as always: Price!” —Stacy Meyrowitz
37 COTTAGESGARDENS.COM

“If you want to make changes to your new home, pay attention to local zoning laws.” —Pat Garrity

“Stay on top of important repairs.” —Stacy Meyrowitz

“It’s often recommended that buyers not do anything structural to a new house for one year. Live in it for a while, and then think about major construction.”

“Make friends with contractors and get brokers’ referrals for plumbers, handymen, and landscapers.” —Bill Williams

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR NEW HOMEOWNERS?

“Maintenance is key, particularly in the Hamptons, where lots of salt air and frequent family entertaining can be tough on homes. You’re investing money to be able to live so close to New York City, and maintaining your home is about maintaining value.”

—Keith Green
—Ann Ciardullo
38 THE HAMPTONS DESIGN GUIDE 2023 YOUR HAMPTONS DREAM HOME TOP: TRIA GIOVAN (JULY 15, 2022); BOTTOM: MICHAEL MORAN (SEPTEMBER 2022)

IS STAGING WORTH THE EXPENSE?

“A good agent can and should be able to stage a listing for little or no expense.”

“Staging is very important if a property is dated, and visual appeal on internet listings is paramount.” —Pat

“It’s not so much about staging but more about whether a house looks great when you walk in the door or needs sprucing up or emptying out. The second most important thing after ‘location, location, location’ is ‘first impressions, first impressions, first impressions.’” —Keith

“It depends on the property. We recently had to go in with a SWAT team to declutter a new listing, and it made a huge difference.”

“All types of staging can be extremely helpful, but when a house is staged digitally, it’s crucial to tell potential clients that it’s a rendering, because it’s kind of a bummer if they walk into the house and it’s empty.” —Bill

39 COTTAGESGARDENS.COM ANASTASSIOS MENTIS (NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2021)

IS IT RISKY TO BUY OR RENT SIGHT UNSEEN?

“Homes are wondrous, complicated things. Buying or renting sight unseen is a fool’s mission.” —Keith Green

“People don’t even come out to look at 50 percent of rentals. I have had a few sight-unseen sales, but only because buyers knew the location and intended to knock down the existing home.” —Ann

“Many clients from overseas rent sight unseen, and FaceTime tours have made things easier. But I don’t know anyone who has bought a house sight unseen.”

Ciardullo
“There is always a risk, although technology has minimized it with walkthrough videos.” —Pat Garrity
YOUR HAMPTONS DREAM HOME DAVID MITCHELL (AUGUST 15, 2022) 40 THE HAMPTONS DESIGN GUIDE 2023
—Bill Williams

WHAT MAKES THE HAMPTONS

SUCH AN UNUSUAL AND INTERESTING REAL ESTATE MARKET?

“The combination of the countryside, the seaside, and the light, along with sophisticated and accomplished people. There is no other place like it.” —Pat Garrity

“Buyers in the Hamptons are more discerning than in other markets. High expectations lead to a high yield on investments.” —Stacy

“It’s the premier playground for the greatest city on earth. Affluent New Yorkers are not going to start moving to New Jersey.” —Keith

“The proximity to New York City. In an hour and a half, you can be sitting on the beach.” —Ann Ciardullo

“Wall Street drives our prices, so it’s a much different market. People tend to think of the Hamptons as just a second-home market, but it’s not—it’s a resort area. Prices are X in Miami and XX in Miami Beach, and the same goes here.”

WHAT HOMEWORK SHOULD CLIENTS DO

BEFORE MEETING WITH AN ARCHITECT?

“Make a list of priorities of what you can’t live without and what is more of a whim.” —Pamela Glazer

“Home-makeover shows on reality television give the false idea that everything takes two weeks and costs two dollars. Considered design and good construction takes longer and costs more. So educate yourself about construction duration and budget.”

“Think about the number and type of rooms you want and how you want to live in your house. But leave lots of room for creativity, too.”

OUR PANEL OF EXPERTS

Pamela Glazer

Pamela Glazer Architect

Alexander Gorlin

Alexander Gorlin Architects

Bailey Humbert Heck

Kitty McCoy

Kathrine McCoy Architect

Bryan Young Young Projects

“Share inspirational images you have collected with your architect and designer.” —Kitty McCoy

BUILT TO PERFECTION COLIN MILLER (SEPTEMBER 2022) 46 THE HAMPTONS DESIGN GUIDE 2023
“Come to the first meeting prepared to discuss who you and your family are and how you see yourself using and living in your spaces, along with budget considerations and important aesthetic desires.”
—Bryan Young

WHAT’S WORTH SPLURGING ON?

“Robust utilities and a good building envelope—especially well-made windows and doors, since you’ll be interacting with them daily.”

“Anything having to do with the tactile experience: natural materials on the floors, highquality door hardware, and excellent plumbing fittings.”

“Higher-grade flooring is always worth the extra cost since it’s the dominant visual cue throughout a house.”

“Anything that calms the nerves and transports you to your happy place, like an oversize bathtub with a view or a den souped up with the latest technology.” —Pamela

“Good materials. You can always build smaller, but better. Less square footage can translate to better constructed square footage.” —Bailey

“Technology. There’s no longer any excuse to have an energyinefficient home. We must build for the future.” —Bryan

GLEN ALLSOP (NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2022) 47 COTTAGESGARDENS.COM

WHAT, IF ANYTHING, SHOULD BE SALVAGED FROM A REBUILD?

“If the existing house is to be demolished but has historic features such as decorative wood paneling, columns, or prominent moldings, they’re worth saving. And if there is substantial historic value, you might want to explore renovations and additions, rather than demolition.”

“Everything within reason, but for different purposes. Metal piping and wiring can be recycled, old wood siding can be used for new cladding or finishes, and solid timbers can sometimes be repurposed for structural use. Vintage electrical fixtures can often be upgraded, and you can get tax credits for donating certain salvaged items, such as appliances.”

“Antique wide-plank flooring is always worth salvaging, as are antique beams for reuse.”

“Anything with sentimental, emotional, or aesthetic value to the client, even if it’s cheaper to buy new rather than refurbish. From a design standpoint, it can be an amazing opportunity to incorporate history into a new project.”

BUILT TO PERFECTION TRIA GIOVAN (SEPTEMBER 2021) 48 THE HAMPTONS DESIGN GUIDE 2023

WHAT’S THE OPTIMAL CLIENTARCHITECT INTERACTION?

“One marked by mutual respect.” —Alexander Gorlin

“The ability to listen to each other and be clear about intentions.” —Pamela Glazer

“Trust, collaboration, and respect.” —Kitty McCoy

“Speaking more freely, with less formality, and a good joke here and there! I work better in jeans and a T-shirt than in a coat and tie.” —Bailey Humbert Heck

TOP FIVE WHAT CLIENTS WANT NOW

1. “Indoor/outdoor spaces and golf simulators.”

—Kitty McCoy

2. “Low-maintenance, sustainable materials and other green features, such as solar panels.” —Alexander Gorlin

3. “Top-of-the-line appliances and plumbing fixtures.”

—Pamela Glazer

4. “Cozy, inviting rooms, as opposed to open-concept floorplans.”

—Bryan Young

5. “Large bathrooms.”

—Alexander Gorlin

—Bryan Young

TRIA GIOVAN (JULY 15, 2021) 49 COTTAGESGARDENS.COM
“Dialogue—both speaking and listening. A healthy back-and-forth is essential.”

WHAT DO HOMEOWNERS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HIRING AN ARCHITECT?

“It is important to be honest, give open feedback, have trust, and not stress about where to start.” —Bryan Young

“Generally, you get what you pay for, so don’t skimp on the fees. And make sure you have good chemistry with your architect, since it’s a long-term relationship.” —Alexander Gorlin

“You need to like the architect’s work and agree philosophically from the start.” —Pamela Glazer

“The design process isn’t always linear, and arriving at a great conclusion takes time. We never end at the same place we start, and that process of discovery is everything.” —Bryan Young

“The design and construction process can be enjoyable, but it takes some coordination to get things right. You should like and trust your architect— you’re not just hiring a portfolio of homes.” —Bailey

BUILT TO PERFECTION LEFT: PETER MURDOCK (SEPTEMBER 2021); RIGHT: READ MCKENDREE (MAY/JUNE 2022) 50 THE HAMPTONS DESIGN GUIDE 2023

WHAT SHOULD CLIENTS BE INVOLVED IN, AND WHAT SHOULD BE LEFT TO THE ARCHITECT?

“Leave the design to the architect— especially the overall concept, space, and forms. Finishes can be more informed by clients’ tastes.”

“Clients should definitely be involved with the design process but leave the review of shop drawings to the architect.”

“The most valuable thing a client can bring to the process is open and honest communication. The architect will handle the ins and outs of the design concept, planning, and transfer of information to the team.” —Bryan

“Clients should set the mood: They need to lead the way in establishing the overall vibe for their home. Architects should do everything else, including steering the design decisions so that the final product has consistency.” —Pamela

“The program, the types of spaces the owners want and why they want them, and the architectural design direction. Architects can take it from there to start turning initial ideas into buildable design. And as designs develop, owner involvement is critical.”

WHAT

IS

YOUR FAVORITE PART

ABOUT DESIGNING AND BUILDING PROJECTS IN THE HAMPTONS?

“No two projects are the same, as every site has unique features. As an architect practicing in the Hamptons, I am fortunate to work with some of the best interior designers, landscape architects, contractors, and subcontractors in the business.”

“The opportunity to be a bit more creative, as most of the houses we design are not our clients’ primary residences. And the craftspeople in the Hamptons can build amazing things.” —Pamela

“My Hamptons clients all have great taste and want to build something special for their friends and families to enjoy together. I love this level of shared care for the design.”

“So many talented builders and tradespeople of all types make it a joy to collaborate during the construction process. And in all our projects, we strive to capitalize on the beauty of the Hamptons—the water, the trees, the skies, and the light.” —Bryan Young

YOU’RE NEARING A PROJECT’S END. WHAT’S THE LAST STEP?

“Photography, both for posterity and to establish the way the house is presented once complete.”

“Champagne, or a good bottle of red.”

“The punch list, along with final permit signoffs.” —Pamela

“A meticulous punch list along with a final back-check to make sure every little item gets done. And then comes the big party!”

“At the moment, I’m in love with walnut cabinetry and painted kitchen cabinets. For clients who want white cabinets, I would suggest a fabulous stone countertop with lots of veining for some added interest.”

“A white kitchen should incorporate wood or another texture on the island or lower cabinets.”

“Kitchen colors should take cues from the architecture of the house, or sometimes even the stain on the floor.”

WHAT ARE SMART WAYS TO INCORPORATE STORAGE?

“Drawers that have inserts, with a section dedicated to lids for pots and pans. Otherwise, they pile up and become such a mess. And pull-out pantries so that you can see what you have in stock and avoid buying things you don’t need.” —Michelle

“Drawers, cabinets, and shelves are all handy, but design them thoughtfully to fit overscale items like lobster pots and large cans of olive oil.” —Farrin Cary

“Drawers within drawers provide amazing extra storage—much more so than traditional undercounter cabinets.”

“Full-height cabinets and pull-outs.” —David Rogal

“Butler drawers fitted for electricity—so all your appliances aren’t taking up so much counter space.” —Farrin Cary

HOW DO YOU ADD PERSONALITY TO

A KITCHEN?

“Try a nonstandard light fixture, like a chandelier or something you’d ordinarily put in your powder room. And I love any kind of wild or cool marble.”

—Michelle

“Why not hang some art?”

—Farrin

“Open shelves piled with stacks of bowls or pottery suggest the personality of the person who lives there.” —David Rogal

“A bold color painted on the cabinets or a stone countertop with lots of veining.” —Victoria Stokes

“Try a different texture on the hood above the stovetop and a warm wood on the countertops.”

WHAT ELEMENTS WILL ELEVATE A KITCHEN TO A-PLUS?

“A large separate pantry that’s easily accessible from the kitchen.”

“A sous vide oven.”

—David

“A big island that can double as an entertaining area.” —Michelle Gerson

“Minimal above-counter storage will allow more light to flood into the space.” —Farrin Cary

HOW CAN YOU MAKE COOKING A JOY, RATHER THAN A CHORE?

“Splurge on an extra-wide range and additional wall ovens. And two dishwashers are great for large families who entertain frequently.”

—Victoria Stokes

“Keep utensils and spices next to the stove and a cutting board nearby.”

—Farrin Cary

“The triangle rule holds, with the fridge, sink, and cooktop forming the tips of the triangle. You want each easily accessible to the others and about the same distance apart.”

“Corian lasts forever and is great for any budget.”

—David

“I always splurge on countertops. The beauty and integrity of natural stone is irreplaceable.”

—Farrin Cary

“I generally try to convince clients to use marble, and not to worry—you can usually treat marble counters to get rid of scratches and stains. On the other hand, Caesarstone is a bit easier on the budget and offers great colors, such as black or gray or taupe.”

HOW DO YOU LIKE TO ACCESSORIZE

A KITCHEN?

“Display pottery in a beautiful cabinet or on open shelves.”

“Stack glasses and plates on glass shelves, which will allow light to flow through and show off your collection.”

“Hang artwork and arrange items you’ve bought on trips abroad, such as cutting boards, olive oils, and fruit bowls.” —Farrin Cary

WHICH COLORS WORK BEST IN THE BATH?

“For a primary bath, I would stick to a crisp white or a watery blue or celadon, something very soothing.” —David

“I lean toward white or sand gray. You can always bring personality into the space with towels that are switched out during different seasons of the year.”

“I like to keep bathrooms light and bright. Stone or tile should have a fresh white background to it, or something with a bit more flavor, such as onyx.”

“Soothing neutrals—anything that looks washed out by the sun and feels natural.” —Victoria

WALLPAPER OR PAINT?

“I love any sort of texture, such as Venetian plaster. Or try painting stripes or color blocks, which is a good way to go easy on the budget.”

“In larger bathrooms, I prefer plaster or artisan-painted walls—something that can handle the humidity.” —Farrin Cary

“A simple wallpaper can add texture and change the dimension of a space.”

“Oval or round mirrors create a porthole effect.” —David

“Float vanities eight or so inches off the floor to provide space for a bit of storage. And a sensor light is great for trips to the bathroom in the middle of the night.” —Michelle

WHICH NATIVE PLANTS THRIVE ON THE EAST END?

“Different sites call for different plants, but some of my favorites are grasses such as little bluestem; ferns, from ostrich to hay-scented to wood fern; and perennials including purple coneflower, black-eyed Susan, milkweed, false indigo, and goldenrod.”

“Reliable shrubs and trees include bayberry, American holly, and inkberry and dogwood, shad, cedars, white oaks, and red maples.”

“In a woodland environment, low-bush blueberries are a nice ground cover alongside ferns, sassafras, and oaks.”

“Switchgrass; tons of varieties of sedge; butterfly weed; inkberry, which is very common but so essential to the environment; and high- and low-bush blueberries.”

Verbena bonariensis, perennial geraniums, Phlox ‘David’, dwarf buddleia, perennial salvias, and ground-cover roses.”

“Our climate and soil are relatively forgiving, making it easy to garden. Most plants do well in our area—just look at the nursery business here and how well it’s doing!”

HOW SHOULD SCULPTURE BE INCORPORATED INTO A GARDEN SCHEME?

“Some preexisting gardens might have a formal layout that dictates the placement of sculpture, whereas other sites might be more naturalistic, allowing for a more surprising installation of artwork. It’s somewhat like the way an interior designer places objects inside rooms of the house.”

“It depends on the piece. If it’s viewed from all angles, you want to make sure you have ample space for it. If it’s one-sided, it should have a backdrop that complements it.”

“Museums in the Hamptons have done some interesting things. At the Parrish Art Museum, sculptures embody a more formal presence within a very naturalistic meadow. And at LongHouse Reserve, where the gardens are more like rooms, sculptures are sited to occupy these spaces very specifically.”

THE GREAT OUTDOORS TRIA GIOVAN (JULY 15, 2022)
“My go-to is to place sculpture at the terminus of an axial view.”

HOW TO MAKE WAVES WITH WATER FEATURES

“A water feature is so nice near a pool or as a centerpiece in the garden. The sound of running water is so relaxing.”

—Elizabeth Lear

“Consider installing sun shelves in swimming pools and ‘plug-in-and-play’ bubbling fountain vessels.”

—Brian Mahoney

TOP FIVE WHAT CLIENTS WANT NOW

1. “Zero-edge pools.”

—Mario Nievera

2. “‘Perfect’ lawns—I don’t know if this will ever change!”

WHICH VEGETABLE AND HERB PLANTS PERFORM BEST ON THE EAST END?

“Depending on the time of year, lettuces and asparagus in the spring, and then from midsummer to fall, cucumbers, tomatoes, and squashes.”

“Most herbs do well— from basil to dill to rosemary—as do lots of vegetables.”

“Anything in the mint family— which includes basil, thyme, rosemary, and sage—does great. As for vegetables, peppers never disappoint and always look pretty, whereas tomatoes grow well but can get very rattylooking.” —Brian Mahoney

“All herbs do—and they’re especially easy to maintain and harvest if you grow them in containers.”

ADDING COLOR TO THE GARDEN: HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH?

“We rely on greens, whites, purples, and blues. You can always add color in other ways, such as vibrantly hued pots for plants. Color can be ephemeral and fun but can also be deemed garish. Think yellow in the spring: It is always welcome, but then you can’t wait for it to fade.”

“A beautiful garden doesn’t have to have any color at all— it can be very monochromatic, with just greens and browns from native grasses. And, of course, when you design a garden that’s colorful, there’s never enough color! There is never too much and never too little.” —Elizabeth

“It really depends on a garden’s theme and the clients’ preferences. Lately, the average client wants fewer flowers or one predominant color, such as white.” —Mario Nievera

TRIA GIOVAN (SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2019)
—Brian Mahoney
“People do have color preferences and often make requests. It’s less common for clients to ask for hot colors like yellows, oranges, and reds. Blue, white, and purple are more popular.”

SHADE GARDENS:

TOP TIPS

“Keep them simple by limiting the palette to ferns and foliage plants.”

“Make sure the soil is not too wet and that you have good drainage.” —Mario

“I like to plant wood asters, even though the deer eat them. When you pinch them, they become even bushier and flower more.” —Brian

HYDRANGEAS 101

“When pruning, don’t cut back the entire bush, or you won’t have any flowers. Also, the bushes should not receive too much direct sunlight or be subjected to low temperatures during budding time.” —Mario

“Different types call for different kinds of care, but with some of the repeat-bloomers, you can’t go wrong.” —Brian

“The big-leaf mop-heads require careful deadheading in the fall so that you don’t cut the bud for growth the following spring, whereas Paniculatas bloom on new wood and can be cut down to the ground. Overall, hydrangeas are relatively low maintenance.”

WHERE DO YOU LOOK FOR GARDEN INSPIRATION?

“I look at the natural environment, which is always a source for ideas. You can’t repeat what nature has done, but you can imitate it appropriately.”

—Elizabeth

“I love traveling to other countries to see how plants and hardscape materials are used in other cities and communities.”

—Mario

WHICH PLANTS DO YOU TEND TO FAVOR FOR INDOORS?

“Clivia, cycads, bay leaf, and Christmas cactus. Bugs can often be a problem, but for sunburn prevention, sun-scald products are a godsend.”

“The architecture of a house is critical. Is it contemporary or period? And from what period? We consider so many elements.” —Elizabeth Lear

“In addition to visiting gardens around the world, garden books can offer lots of inspiration.” —Elizabeth Lear

“The U.K. I am an addict.”
“Ficus varieties are best, as well as palms including ‘Raphis’, ‘Alexander’, and ‘Kentia’.”
109 COTTAGESGARDENS.COM
—Mario Nievera

WHICH FLOWERS LOOK BEST IN ARRANGEMENTS?

“Flowers cut straight from the garden, such as roses, hydrangeas, viburnum, and rhododendrons. August can be a challenge, though, since so little is in bloom. That’s when store-bought sunflowers come in!”

—Mario Nievera

“Dahlias are incredible, and so easy to arrange. And it’s nice to see natural materials mixed in with more formal floral material.”

“Roses, lilies, a variety of grasses, plants with berries, and even vines. Or just a charming tiny bouquet of sweet peas.”

—Elizabeth Lear

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR FIGHTING INSECTS AND PESTS?

“Install ceiling fans in covered outdoor areas and keep plantings as natural and nontoxic as possible—for both humans and pets.”

“Screened porches are often a hard sell when clients are doing master plans for their home. But the folks I can convince to do them end up adoring them. Just do it—no spraying involved!”

DECORATING 101:

WHERE TO SPLURGE AND WHERE TO SAVE?

“If you splurge on good upholstery, it will last a lifetime. Also, floors, doors, and hardware—anything of quality that you touch every day.”

“Natural-fiber rugs made from jute or sisal can withstand a lot of wear and tear without breaking the bank. If a standard retail size works in your space, it’s an easy way to save some cash.”

“Save on antiques or one-of-akind pieces that you’ve bought at auction. They might need a little extra love, but their patina and richness will add unparalleled warmth and depth to your home.”

WHAT DO CLIENTS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GETTING PROJECTS FINISHED IN THE HAMPTONS?

“Supply-chain issues and long lead times for furniture production continue to be a problem. And generally speaking, if you want to be in by summer, get ready to start planning the summer before!”

“Start early! And leave a wide window open for delivery, since there can be long wait times for products, as well as traffic delays.” —Brad

“Don’t wait for the new year to begin if you want your project done by the summer. We like to have at least six months for just the decorating part, so starting the previous fall is optimal.”

“Patience is key. Delays and damaged merchandise are common challenges these days.”

HOW DO YOU PUT “SUMMER”

INTO A HAMPTONS HOME?

“Using light-colored linen or cotton slipcovers over heavier upholstered pieces is a quick way to switch up the look of your home as the seasons change.” —Bella Mancini

“Slipcovers in nubby fabrics are super-inviting and summery—they’re light but have a lot of texture.” —Brad Ford

“Look to nature and design your interiors to feel like an extension of the outdoors.” —Alexandra Brady

“Natural fibers keep things from seeming too precious. A relaxing summer getaway should be designed to be lived in.” —Alexandra Brady

“A seasonal pillow story can really transform a room—think fun, beachy prints in the summer and rich velvets in the winter. Each style on a simple oatmeal linen sofa offers an entirely different vibe.” —Bella Mancini

HOW TO DECK OUT YOUR HOME BAR

“I love a good cocktail and I love styling a bar! I always begin with a pretty tray and my summer essentials: Campari, gin, reposado and blanco tequilas, Fever-Tree club soda and tonic, and a bowl of sliced citrus fruit. I keep a chic wine cooler close by, as well as cute cocktail napkins, glasses, and a big bucket of ice.”

FUN WITH FABRICS!

“Try decorating a room in several shades of the same color.” —Brian Brady

“A mix of textures and shades of whites and neutrals works well in the Hamptons. And you can use a lot of outdoor fabrics indoors to keep things very low maintenance. To kick it up a notch, layer everything with patterned throws and accessories.” —Brad Ford

“Don’t be afraid to play with pattern and scale.” —Bella Mancini

“In addition to playing with pattern, play with texture, too. Sometimes layered textures are more inviting than too many bold patterns all at once.”

—Alexandra Brady

WHAT ARE SOME IDEAL PAINT COLOR COMBINATIONS?

“I like the combination of red, dirty pink, gray blue, and mustard.” —Bella Mancini

“Lots of neutrals—

50 shades of beige!” —Brad Ford

“I’m into green palettes with pops of yellow right now.”

WHAT ARE YOUR TIPS AND TRICKS FOR DECORATING

WITH MIRRORS?

“Because mirrors can help amplify a room, put them in tighter spaces such as an entry foyer or stair hall. And mirrors can double as a piece of art, giving a room more character.”

“Mirrors always add shimmer and make a room feel bigger. I lean toward using antiqued mirrors in a more casual setting.”

“Decorative mirrors that create vignettes are key. I’m not a fan of fully mirrored walls.” —Brian

“A mirror in your guest bedroom, especially if it reflects nature from outside, is a thoughtful touch. And a mirror in the foyer is always great for a quick final check before running off to dinner!” —Bella

WHAT SIMPLE DECORATING TRICKS MAKE A SPACE FEEL LIGHT AND AIRY?

“Editing—simply not having too many things. I’m a big believer in having the basics among larger gestures, such as artwork.” —Brad

“Light wood floors, unlined sheers, and flatweave rugs.”

BESIDES A STACK OF OVERSIZE BOOKS, WHAT LOOKS NICE ON A COFFEE TABLE?

“Personal mementoes, candleholders with pretty tapers or a scented candle, a vintage bowl, and a large potted plant. No matter what you choose, be sure to play with different heights and scales.”

“Big hurricane candleholders, a vase of flowers or an orchid, and personal decorative objects that have meaning to you.” —Brad

“Vintage boxes, a vase with flowers, and a favorite shell or piece of coral.” —Alexandra

TOP: TREVOR TONDRO (MAY/JUNE 2022); BOTTOM: BRITTANY AMBRIDGE (JULY 15, 2022) 141 COTTAGESGARDENS.COM
“You don’t need to decorate every single corner of your home. Give yourself a little breathing room, and your eyes will thank you.”
—Bella Mancini
“Oversize geometric objects.”

THROW PILLOW

BASICS

“Keep pillow size proportional to the scale of the piece it will sit on.”

“Throw pillows need to be soft—ideally down-filled—and the fabric should be comfortable to the skin and not abrasive.” —Brad

“Buy an insert that’s slightly larger than the actual pillow cover so that the end result is really full and comfortable.”

“Three pillows is usually the magic number for a standard-size sofa. I like a 24-inch anchor pillow, then a 20-inch pillow, and one lumbar pillow. Too many pillows leave you with nowhere to sit!”

HOW CAN YOU ADD GRANDEUR TO A FOYER?

“If space allows, position a big round table under a large light fixture. A table can be a great perch for a flower arrangement or styled accessories, making a statement right when you walk in the door.” —Alexandra

“Include an overscale mirror with art leaned up against it and install a large chandelier. Bolder forms are key.” —Brad

“I like a great mirror, a pair of vintage sconces, a pretty pendant, and a printed wallpaper. These can elevate even the most boring of foyers.”

WHAT’S AN IDEAL ACCENT CHAIR FOR A HAMPTONS LIVING ROOM?

“Above all, a chair that’s comfortable, and ideally with a seat height within a two-inch range from your sofa seat height.”

“A beautifully restored vintage chair.” —Brian

“In a den, upholstered chairs are best for comfort. But in a living room, a different texture is nice, such as wood, rope, raffia, or leather.” —Alexandra

“A chair that’s unique in form, not fully upholstered, and comfortable.” —Brad

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE FABRICS FOR

UPHOLSTERY

BOTH INDOORS AND OUT?

“Solids in natural fibers.” —Brian Brady

“Linen upholstery is lovely in a summer residence. Avoid viscose, as it can be very hard to clean.” —Alexandra

“Natural fibers such as cotton, wool, and linen.” —Bella

“Anything in earth or sand tones—something that looks like it belongs on the beach.”

ELSA SOYARS INTERIORS

Jacqueline Cutler believes that a house should look like those who call it home. Cutler specializes in large scale and luxury interiors that reflect and enhance her clients’ lifestyle. A great listener, Cutler transposes her clients’ needs and dreams, into interiors that radiate refinement, style, elegance, warmth, comfort and quality. Some projects start with one room while others involve the entire residence or space. Cutler boasts a long roster of repeat clients which speaks for itself and has also led to commercial projects including professional offices and boutique and new

build condo/apartment buildings. Project locations include New York City, Westchester, the Hamptons, Miami, Greenwich, Nantucket, and Vail, Colorado.

Cutler’s practice insists that good design is knowing when to stop; to not overdo or overwhelm, but to let the personality of the client shine. “After all, it’s all about the mix, not the matching to create truly timeless and thoughtful design.” By incorporating art, architecture, and the interests of the family, Cutler designs beautiful interiors that create backgrounds for her clients to fully enjoy the art of their living.
