Interior Design by Betty Wasserman Art & Interiors seen at Private Residence, Southampton - Southampton Modern Farmhouse

Southampton Modern Farmhouse

Item details

This Southampton Modern Farmhouse was a collaboration with my architects and my daughter! Since this was a dream come true, to design a home for myself and my family, we really enjoyed the process from beginning to end.

All the team members had the same vision, so the process was easy and fun. I have always wanted a house at the beach that reminded me of my first loft in lower Manhattan, with high ceilings, wide open spaces, and one main living, dining, and hang out space with a beautiful fireplace — as well as the option to live on the first and main floor without having to climb stairs.

We started with that in mind and designed from there. Once we established the standing seam roof shape and the expanse of glass across the front and the back, the rest was easy. We floated the fireplace wall in the center of the room, leaving lots of space above for the 25-foot ceilings above.

Almost 5,000 square feet inclusive of the lower level allowed for lots of programming, which houses the salon, the ballet room, another media area, a conference room, a full bath, storage, and some office space.
