The July 2018 issue of Architectural Digest features “Hollyhock,” a stunningly beautiful home that makes my heart sing! Hollyhock was built on four acres near the ocean in Southampton for powerhouse New York commercial real-estate broker Mary Ann Tighe and her husband Dr. David Hidalgo. It is located on the site of a former estate known as Red Maples, a 1908 Italianate villa that was razed in the 1940s. Historic reference abounds at Hollyhock, including a stucco exterior and Mission-tile roof that pay homage to the original estate. Interior features were inspired by the iconic architecture of David Adler, which architect Michael Dwyer was commissioned to duplicate. The legendary Bunny Williams decorated the interiors with classic chintz, well-bred antiques, and a living room inspired by Pride & Prejudice.
Landscape architecture by Quincy Hammond, building by Frank Cafone, styling by Anita Sarsidi, and photography by Douglas Friendman.
I am in love… This home takes my breath away!! To learn more, please see the July 2018 issue of Architectural Digest. And for more inspiration from the illustrious Bunny Williams, I recommend her books An Affair with a House, A House by the Sea, Bunny Williams On Garden Style, and Bunny Williams’ Point of View.
