Textbook Tuesday | Out East - Houses and Gardens of the Hamptons

With the summer months ahead, we collectively turn to outdoor living and dinning inspiration. What better place to turn than the iconic shingled houses and oceanfront cottages of the Hamptons? In Out East (out next month from Vendome Press), Jennifer Ash Rudick and photographer Tria Giovan take us on an insider's tour of more that 30 of the Hampton's most exquisite homes and gardens. Rudick, a long-time Southampton resident, explains that "few areas can lay claim to the fact that almost every American architect of note has worked here," (Vogue.com) Through reading this lovely hardcover collection I came to appreciate that this locale blends colonialism, contemporary design, and coastal charm. Here's a peek inside:

Of course we can admire the outdoors spaces of such a charming coastal community, but the indoor spaces are equally as spectacular. Some of my favorites:

I particularly feel drawn to the pattern-on-pattern maximalist spaces, which may seem atypical for oceanfront homes, but I love how cozy and inviting they appear:

The bedroom below, also featured on the cover of this month's Architectural Digest, is another perfect example of bringing maximalism to the Hampton's vacation homes:

I'm sure I'd never leave if I could inhabit any one of these stunning homes. Anyone who adores the summer-chic style of the Hampton's and the charm of beach-front communities will need to add Out East: Houses and Gardens of the Hampton's to their personal design library!
