There is no denying that the East Coast does charm very well. The Hamptons seem to boast some of the most amazing getaway homes imaginable. This one featured in Traditional Home is no exception. Designed by Skye Kirby, it is breathtakingly calm and understated. It is gorgeous. The couple who resides here is artistic and loves to create. What a dreamy place to find inspiration. And following the images, I have included Skye’s design must haves.
Skye Kirby’s 10 “must-have” body + soul elements
Heathery grays, blues, golds, and whites–in the Hamptons, these colors come naturally from the landscape and the ocean.
Comfortable seating and ottomans
When you want to cuddle up and relax, you always need a place to put up your feet.
A clutter-free zone
I am a believer that less is more. Over-accessorizing can take away from the calming nature of a room and become distracting.
Whether to read, to escape into, to inspire, or just to look good.
There should always be a good source of music to set the mood and create relaxation.
I’m a big believer in having a throw in every room to wrap yourself in–preferably while enjoying that good cup of coffee or tea.
Orient your space to the best view. If you don’t have a view, create one with original art or photography of the things you love.
Light and candles
Always maximize natural light. Ambient light can also effectively create a mood, if done with thought. And don’t forget the candles.
I love flowing panels. When the windows are open, the breeze creates a rippling that is not unlike the water.
Create a space for whatever your pleasure is, a place that’s totally dedicated to your creative outlet
