Welcome to TGP Tidbits where we round up the happenings and our musings of the design industry each week. This week we explore coastal chic interiors, reminisce on Nancy Meyers films, and performance fabrics. Written by Natalie Aldridge.
A Traditional Hamptons-style Home Becomes a Pop-Up Chanel Boutique
Set in the idyllic village of East Hampton, 26 Newton Lane has been transformed by Chanel into coastal heaven. From now until Labor Day the once empty shingled home brimming with lush landscaping will operate as an ephemeral boutique, a store model the fashion house has utilized in the past to bring experiential shopping to unique locations.
The boutique is strategically situated off the iconic Main Street of East Hampton, offering a sense of discovery and intimacy for its visitors. Similar to past ephemeral boutiques, the goods held within and beautifully appointed interiors perfectly reflect the environment. Built in 1897 by Joseph Greenleaf Thorpe, the famed architect of Grey Gardens, the building is landmarked and has been meticulously maintained throughout the decades. After one drinks in the luxe archways, crisply painted trimming, and well-manicured details of the exteriors, a treat awaits on the interior.
There is no shortage of covetable pieces to obtain in the boutique spanning two full floors with the second being appointment-only. With high contrast white walls and matte black floors, the store pays tribute to the fashion house’s roots while connecting to its Hamptons surroundings. Each upholstered piece is clad in linen or tweed, making for a blend of Hamptonian and Parisian sensibilities.
If you find yourself in the Hamptons this summer, take a peek at the store.
Coastal Chic Has A Moment
Chanel seems to be on a cusp of a zeitgeist. But then again, the fashion house typically is. If your Instagram feed is anything like mine, it is hard to miss the flood of coastal interiors. In a nostalgic spin, the internet seems to be clamoring for the iconic aesthetic portrayed in Nancy Meyers’ movies, Diane Keaton’s character in Something’s Gotta Give is a particular favorite.
Originally dubbed “Coastal Grandmother” by twenty-somethings on TikTok, the term has taken hold expanding into “Coastal Granddaughter” and simply into an affinity for the all-encompassing lifestyle that is coastal interiors. There is no denying the impact of Nancy Meyers films. Each one combines a lust-worthy aesthetic with such ease of living. From the interiors to the wardrobe, the panache of classic prep, soothing color palette, she always creates an enviable vision of life.
With summer in full swing, there is no better time to fantasize and embrace a coastal lifestyle. Take a look at some of The Glam Pad’s top coastal interiors inspiring us right now.
Now I must watch a Nancy Meyers film, and stat! Or perhaps enjoy a long walk with a linen button-down and a woven hat.
La Vita Giardino
In the coastal spirit, Casa Branca has debuted its latest performance fabric collection, La Vita Giardino. Drawing from Alessandra Branca’s Italian upbringing, the collection marries the luxury of indoor fabrics with her Roman sensibility of outdoor living.
Each pattern and color way melds sublimely together. Unique to Casa Branca, ready-made pillows are available in selection prints for purchase. Classical yet fresh, we just adore this performance collection.
Now that we are in the coastal state of mind, shop the coastal favorites we are obsessing over this week!
