Happy Sunday (am a wee bit early but won't be able to post in the morning)..Sunday is fast becoming my favorite day of the week.. no pressure. Well, not totally because tonight we are going to a good friends for a small Superbowl party and I am bringing a dish or two so will be cooking but for me that is generally a pleasurable thing to do so am not complaining. 
Sunday to me, is all about doing exactly as you please and not having to make any compromises. We all deserve one day like that, right?  As I have been doing ever since I started blogging (way back a month I decided to feature an "open house" every Sunday. And this is the best kind, because you can stayed perched in your bed, in your pjs, with your cup of coffee, not having to move a muscle (except the fingers on the keyboard) sit back, enjoy and take in the beauty of these fabulous homes. 

This fabulous Georgian home, designed by architect Allan Greenberg had the interiors done by Kullman and Kravis. It is the picture of elegance and understated refinement.

Stunning architecture 

Fabulous front to back entry.....magnificent!

Pretty seating area in the living room

Love this dining room, splendid with Gracie chinoiserie paper

Love the colors here, the soft greens, golds against the russet walls.....

Elegant and luxurious master gilded to perfection

Something about the backs of houses....this one is no exception, fabulous!

I can almost feel the breeze, feel the burning rays of the hot summer sun and hear the morning birds chirping to announce a new day, can't you? Here we are in glorious picturesque Southampton of the fabled Hamptons on Long Island, this shingled beauty is designed by the fabulous firm of Shope, Reno and Wharton with interiors by Joseph Creme. I would say that this is about as dreamy as a beach house can get!

Stunning Hamptons shingle styled home is resplendent with a wood shingle roof

Beautiful and gracious light airy foyer

Loooove this living room, the colors, scale, symmetry, to me this is perfection!

Gorgeous dining room in a neutral palette lets the light in

Elegant creamy toned family room/media room....the kind of room you don't want to leave, put on some jazz, pour a glass of wine and relax

Elegant master bedroom is cozy and refined

Beautiful rear of the home

Great space, covered porch......very inviting

Sorry...these aren't for sale but wasn't it fun getting a peek inside? Happy Sunday and happy Superbowl!
