Midcentury Modern Vacation Home

Ahhh, the warmth of Spring is beginning to grace us, and with it comes thoughts of time outdoors, relaxing and entertaining. This beautiful vacation home in Amagansett is a picture perfect setting to capture the essence of summer. A renovation by Bates Masi & Architects of a Midcentury Modern home, it is light filled and warm, incorporating reused and repurposed material choices, and unexpected yet classic furniture. Delightfully understated this estate is Athena and Victor Calderone’s Hampton home. The design of the home was carefully considered, and maintains the wonderful qualities of the mid-century architecture. The interior is designed by Athena herself, and  is an eclectic collection of flea market finds and one of a kinds. It works. Sure says summer to me.

Color Interplay

Introducing color into a space can be powerful. Color creates definition and enlivens an environment, whether found in a lovely pillow, a piece of furniture, or integrated as an architectural element. Stevens Lawson Architects designed The Hot Water Beach House and created this beautiful stained glass window effect by introducing colored glass, within the window wall system. It is a beautiful example of the impact that light and color can create. The interesting thing about this installation is the movement within the space. While walking down this corridor in the morning, one would enjoy a dazzling display of color. While passing by later in the day, the space would appear very different, as the movement of sunlight would create a whole new artful display in the space. What a wonderful gift. An evolving exhibit of color.
