A quiet backdrop makes room for fun accents throughout
This week’s edition of House Calls takes us to the
quiet hamlet of Amagansett in East Hampton, New York, where
Manhattan-based designer-artist couple Valentina Akerman and Joe
Bradley found their dream vacation retreat.
Franklin D. Israel, the 1972 beach home required a thorough
renovation from replacing the exterior with vernacular cedar
cladding to creating an open-plan layout on the ground floor. The
result is an airy abode ready for contemporary family living, with
natural light pouring through many windows and skylights.
Inside, the home’s quiet aesthetic—apparent in the
surprisingly artless walls—is warmed up by a
whimsical marble terrazzo called Marmoreal and a blush pink
bathroom. “We wanted [this home] to be really empty in a sense,
but very comfortable,” says Akerman.
Taking inspiration from this dreamy beach home, we sourced key
products—or similar finds—from a few of its standout rooms so
you can bring the look into your own space.
