I am a huge fan of Palm Beach-based Jack Fhillips Design, and I was thrilled when photographer Carmel Brantley of Brantley Photography introduced me to a Hamptons home Jack designed for his client Gloria Kirschner. Jack says…
“This property in East Hampton, NY on Georgica Road represents a uniquely different look for the Hamptons. It turns its back on the common look use of slipcovers and cuteness. In designing the property, a more timeless approach was considered in architectural detail and investment furnishings. The interiors always played into the large amount of the green landscape outside. By using the hues of the green landscape inside, the large house full of windows became connected to nature as one. Nothing jarred the eye.
By using a wonderful collection of 19th century continental furnishings, art and accessories the house was given a very unique and special look that feels like a very old family home. The gothic details throughout are picked up in a lot of the furnishings. I truly believe it is one of the most beautiful homes in the Hamptons, as its comforting warmth combined with its extreme privacy and low key elegance give a weekend guest the best of a sophisticated world.”
Such a beautiful home! Jack is a master when it comes to creating layers of divine detail, and I love the restrained green and white palette. In March, I featured a spectacular Palm Beach home he designed with a primarily blue and white palette… it was designed in six weeks, but looks like it was collected over a lifetime!
