The Betty Wasserman Art & Interiors team created a beautifully serene living room for the Holiday House Hamptons 2019 show in Water Mill, New York. The show house’s contemporary barn-style building and ocean-side location were the inspirations for the tranquil and relaxing space.
“The ‘Bygone Beach’ living room is inspired by a nod to the past, and an excitement about the future,” Wasserman said in a statement. “The Modern Farmhouse lends itself to the sophisticated client who appreciates modern furniture, but who also enjoys a relaxed weekend at the beach entertaining friends and family. The artwork and furnishings in this living room elevate the conversation, while keeping the space warm and inviting.”
House Tipster Industry host Alexis Parent of Alexis Parent Interiors spoke with marketing consultant Jennifer McGraw at an early press unveiling of the charity-benefitting show, where we learned more about Wasserman’s chosen color palette, and the special pieces that make this room stand out.
“When you think of the Hamptons, you think of blue sky and blue water, so you can see that,” McGraw told us. “[Wasserman] really takes great pride in her artwork, it’s really very special. The waves of the ocean, similar to the barn architecture, are very forgiving and allows any style to really work.”
Betty Wasserman Art & Interiors worked with Dennis Miller, BDDW, Ralph Pucci, Odegard, Rubelli, Robin Rice Gallery, Pierre Frey, Holly Hunt, De Le Cuona, Janus et Cie, and more fine artists and vendors to outfit this living room with special art and luxurious upholstery.
Highlights in the space include local artist Joel Perlman’s impressive black sculpture, and Anne Raymond’s artwork on the expansive walls.
“The theory behind Anne Raymond’s art is that everything in this room, which has a little bit of a mid-century modern feel with clean lines, and the artwork goes out of those lines.”
