Minimal Chic in the Hamptons

I was cleaning out another stack of old magazines recently when I came across Lisa Jackson’s old apartment.  It was funny timing since I had the pleasure of meeting her yesterday.  She no longer lives in that apartment but she does still have her minimal chic home in Southampton that she shares with her family.  I read it described as a “no color” home but it is filled with lots of neutrals and dirty colors in the vein of great Belgian design. Lisa was an interior designer but just like me, she stopped designing when it became no longer fun.  Now she designs jewelry and runs her new LJ Cross store in New York. We also discussed that we both appreciate more minimal designs as we get older.  Maybe it’s reflective of that saying, “the more you know, the less you need” by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard. But Lisa was quick to point out that minimal doesn’t mean precious.  The house is filled with people all summer and she definitely puts her feet up on the furniture. The pared down design also means that every single piece is one that she loves.  I wonder how many people can say that about the possessions in their home.

These photos are from  Veranda and Elle Decor that show the progression of the design of the house.
