SERENITY…

and an enveloping sense of finely-tuned elegance reign supreme in this East Hampton beach house, flooded with natural light and swathed in cool neutral tones that reflect the sweeping beauty of the coastal atmosphere. Owned by a New York-based couple who are avid art collectors, the house was originally built in the ’90s and has been refurbished to reflect the pair’s shared love of mid-century, modern and contemporary art and design. The man responsible for bringing their vision to life is revered Hampton-based designer Timothy Godbold, whose intuitive approach to the delicate interplay between space, form, luminosity and color, has garnered him worldwide critical acclaim.

 

 

 

APPLYING…

his signature minimalism to this costal residence, Godbold has created spacious and warm interiors that evince a compelling connection between architectural and tonal components. Indeed, his sleek lines of design bring new ‘shape’ to rooms, while organic silhouettes such as the curvature of an arch and the smooth roundness of sculpted artworks bring to life the decorative nuances of the house’s more structural elements including the inky glaze of its painted wooden floorboards.

 

 

 

 

FUSING…

the strong linear lines of wood, stone and glossed surfaces with an unmistakable lightness of touch, Godbold has engineered a soft streamlined look that segues effortlessly from room to room, from ultra-modern kitchen to relaxed lounge space and beyond. In the master bedroom, the looping pattern of an abstract painting by Brooklyn-based artist Louis Fratino is matched with the sleek cylindrical lights of contemporary designer Ted Abramczyk as well as the textural mid-century stoneware vases of Claude Conover. This well curated mix of antique and modern pieces – paired with bespoke furnishings designed by Godbold – layer up like a collage, infusing this unique home with personality as well as a palpable sense of intimate and private living.

 

 

AESTHETICALLY…

each room harmonizes contrasting styles and textures as demonstrated by the library space with its strong visual flow of geometric shapes disrupted by pops of color and tactile surfaces that foster a sense of safety, comfort and seclusion by the ocean.
