Favorite Hamptons Shops Part 2: Serena & Lily Beach Market

Continuing my occasional post on some of the Hamptons design stores that inspire my projects, let’s continue to Serena and Lily in Wainscott. Honestly, S & L is  one of my favorite companies to use in our designs.  Their items are a wonderful mix of beachy, elegant and fun, and they easily fit into many different spaces.

Like these Riviera chairs, shown in a sun room that I designed.

Their bedding is also fabulous, especially for kids rooms like this girls room I designed in Southampton (note the cute pink footstool near the bed, also from Serena & Lily.)

And their bath towels are so subtle and soft –  shown in a bathroom I designed for a client’s beach house.

Walking through their Wainscott store is a real treat. The use of natural elements like rattan, capiz shell, nubby linen and woven wicker create a soothing environment.

The outdoor courtyard showcases their patio furniture beautifully. Serena & Lily is definitely a shop worth stopping by the next time you’re in the Hamptons!

Mecox Home and Garden: Nature, Refined

For those who have not visited the Hamptons, I thought it would be nice to do an occasional post on some of the design stores that make this place so special and inspire me in my projects. Let’s start with Mecox in Southampton.

A wise teacher once said, “Human beings were not meant to live in the city or in the wilderness – they were meant to live in a garden.”

I’m reminded of this quote while walking through Mecox Garden. Mecox has a wonderful way of “curating” nature. There’s a natural flow between the furnishings and their surroundings that is very Feng Shui.

Here is a sampling of what makes Mecox so special…

The blending of raw and refined, and the way they embrace the “perfect imperfection” of nature, is what makes Mecox one of my favorite design resources in the Hamptons!
