Another fabulous project from Studio Mcgee, contemporary meets traditional… What’s not to love about this space, a mix of contemporary pieces and traditional give it a modern look with a heritage nod.

“Casual and sophisticated, modern and timeless, serene but colourful” is how the designer describes this relaxed, South Carolina home.

Beautiful Hamptons Beach House – Part One
This stunning home epitomises all that a beach house should be with its calm, coastal appeal, yet at the same time it feels sophisticated and its light filled, organic aura must welcome all that visit her. Of course, little coastal touches have been included but far from overdone, this beautiful home is a long way from the humble kiwi beach bach.
No matter what part of the world you live in, if you love interior design and home decorating you will be familiar with the term “Hamptons”, not only is it an influential holiday suburb near New York, its name has become a much in demand design style. The Hamptons depicts a quiet coastal sophistication which is portrayed in this project by Chango & Co. Chango and Co are a well respected and award winning New York interior design studio led by by Creative Director, Susana Simonpietri. Susana has headed projects for various international resorts, hotels, restaurants and high profile residences, and this beautiful beach house located in the Hamptons in Amagansett is just one of their successful private designs.
