Houses and Gardens of the Hamptons

Out East House and Gardens of the Hamptons- book

With the summer solstice behind us and months ahead of soaking up the summer sun, we can’t help but have favorite summer destinations on the brain.

Out East House and Gardens of the Hamptons

There’s no question that when it comes to exclusive summer escapes, the Hamptons top the list. 

Out East entry


But, if you’re like us, no matter how gorgeous the outdoors, the beauty inside is a major factor in whether we love a vacation destination. 


In Out East: Houses and Gardens of the HamptonsJennifer Ash Rudick brilliantly displays some of the Hamptons’ most exquisite homes. 


From sleek and modern,

Out East House and Gardens of the Hamptons

To cottage cozy,

Sunlit and romantic,

To woodland fairy tale chic, 

Out East House and Gardens of the Hamptons

The styles of homes in the Hamptons are as varied as the people who flee to them each summer.

Out East House and Gardens of the Hamptons

A beachfront setting and a pretty pool are icing on the cake and complete the enviable summer spaces.

Out East House and Gardens of the Hamptons

With homes this beautiful, we can imagine that some of these homeowners might decide to remain all year long. Do you have a beach escape planned this summer? Where is your favorite sandy getaway?

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We hope you have a fabulous week!

What Design Bloggers are Saying about Slightly South of Simple:

Slightly South of Simple Review

Thanks to Shelley from Calypso in the Country for this beautiful review!

“If you aren’t already a fan of southern fiction, this will be the book to get you hooked!

Kristy Woodson Harvey has done it again with her beautifully written latest novel, Slightly South of Simple…[H]eart-warming is actually the best word to describe this book.  Kristy has a way of making you fall in love with her characters.  

If you have sisters, you will appreciate the interactions between the sisters in the book.  Seriously, some of the comments between them were just priceless.  I love that they are all strong women yet with quirks like all of us.  I see nothing wrong with a little germ-phobia and aversion to GMO foods, but hey that’s just me!

I also enjoyed how the author’s love of interior design is woven into the story.  With the main character being an interior designer herself, you are able to experience the surroundings through her eyes.  Who doesn’t love hearing about the details of a table setting?…”


A Room with a View!

Eric Piasecki Photographer

Upscale furnishings are nice and beautiful accessories can brighten a space, but, if you ask us our idea of the ultimate in luxury…

Dungan and Nequette Architects

Yards of glass, something gorgeous right beyond… A room with a view, of course!

Tucker and Marks

This living room is beautiful, but what lies beyond? Nothing short of inspirational!

LDa Architecture

There’s nothing more gorgeous than a rocky coastline.

Tobi Tobin via Lonny

And waking up in this bedroom would be nothing short of an all-the-time vacation. We love this bedding too!

Milieu Magazine

Could there be a better place for daydreaming than this gorgeous hammock?

Cullman & Kravis

We consider the porch to be one of the most important rooms in the house. When it has a view like this from all sides we can’t imagine that we’d ever want to be anywhere else! Completely outside or just a little bit covered? The choice is yours. This is porch living at its finest!

LDa Architects

Sitting on this porch watching the boats go by might be even better than actually being on the boat!

Jean Allsopp Photographer

Talk about a bedroom with a view! This is waking up in nature at its finest!


We’d like to go here right this minute.

Jean Allsopp Photographer

Or maybe here! We simply adore the beach and this turquoise water only adds to the allure.

Tracery Interiors

Then again, there is something nice about catching a few rays in the privacy of your own backyard.

Robin Kramer Garden Design

This backyard might be the ultimate in summer luxury. We love every last bit! 

Dear Carolina, women's fiction, fiction, beach reads

And once you’ve found your ideal summer spot, you must find your perfect beach read! If you haven’t read Dear Carolina, I’d be so flattered if it found its way into your beach bag. And, if you have, I’d be so flattered if you’d take a moment to review it on Amazon

Wherever you are today, whether it’s in a room with a view or one with no view at all, we hope these gorgeous spaces bring a little bit of summertime to you!
