Another Hampton Hideaway

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.

The slatted tables in the poolhouse were designed by Bilhuber while the Hampton club chairs are by Walters Wicker, and the 1850s star lantern is from Amy Perlin Antiques. The landscape design around the pool below is by Deborah Nevins. A perfect ending to a perfect home.

    I heart New York City AND The Hamptons – and miss them so much – thanks for easing the ache.

    Hope you’re feeling better soon!

    as a fellow ID I appreciate and love th pictorial features you do. I also HEART that two sided sofa. I used one in a project years and years ago at school, and the professor was emphatic that no one in real life uses them. Now I have proof that I disagree.

    I don’t think ‘I heart the two sided sofa’ can encapsulate my total lust for that piece!!!! it must cost a fortune! Feel better … you’re posts have been extra fab lately! Keep up the great work, (and get some rest)

    LOVE the Laird’s Bridgehampton place! Their city apartment was featured in Elle Decor a few years before… wish I could find a copy and see those photos again.

    Thanks everyone.

    Creative Tonic – You are in luck! I have the New York apartment photos scanned in already and was planning to post them soon!

    The rooms are a delight to see. I love the freshness of them. As an interior designer, I have been specifying dark hardwoods for some time time. Nothing can beat that look.
    Would it be at all possible for you to email me the name of the fabric and the mfg. shown in the office with the large wing chair? I am working on an all-white and copper bedroom and that fabric seems to have just enough design to complete the room.
    If this is confidential, please disregard the request.
    Looking forward to more inspiration.

    Hi Bebe, the wallcovering is a Raoul Textiles linen and the ceiling in Albert Hadley’s Trixie wallpaper for Hinson. It didn’t say exactly what linen so maybe if you went the showroom, they would be able to help you. Good luck!

    This is a great feature, can you please tell me what magazine it was in so I can keep my eye out for a back issue?

    Anonymous, it’s from July/August 2007 Elle Decor. I think there is currently a copy available on ebay if you need one.
