Inside a Bright and Airy East Hampton Home With a Boho-Chic Twist

Sacha Strebe

When Susana Simonpietri, creative director of Chango & Co. interior design firm was tasked with decorating a 3500 square foot East Hampton home (think four bedrooms, three bathrooms, family room, den, playroom, dining area, and kitchen) she didn't let the sheer size daunt her. Instead she crafted a seriously chic abode that went above and beyond her client's dreams. Built in 1981, Simonpietri transformed the traditional east coast Saltbox into a bright and airy family-friendly space with midcentury modern influences and a subtle Moroccan vibe. Thanks to the high vaulted ceilings and picture windows throughout, the home is literally flooded with natural light (and fresh sea air), further enhancing the fashionable décor mix.

Despite its coastal location, this contemporary home is anything but beachy. The neutral colour scheme creates a seriously stylish foundation for the pops of pattern and international influences from Morocco to Scandinavia. Ahead, Simonpietri takes us through her style notes and direction for each room. Just wait until you see what she did with the kid's playrooms. Scroll down for some major pinspiration.
