New York designer Athena Calderone has renovated her mid-century home in the Long Island town of Amagansett with plaster walls, linen fabric, marble and second-hand finds.
The low-slung house is single storey and contains four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Wood floors, clerestory windows and ceilings covered in rope round out the interiors. The residence is complete with a patio, grassy lawn and outdoor swimming pool.
The interiors are revived with a pale palette and a combination of contemporary and vintage pieces. Walls are covered in plaster by Kamp Studios, which also added a fluted plaster design on a kitchen island. Calderone painted the kitchen cabinetry a pale green tone that pulls from the veining on the new Calacatta Monet marble counters.
Brass hardware is intended patina over time and vintage finds include the Spanish 1970s woven rattan stools as barstools and a decorative lamp. Calderone has continued this combination of old and new across the home. In the dining area, there is a farmhouse table surrounded by 1960s Italian Sapporo chairs made of walnut with brown leather seats. Vintage furniture and accessories are a major aspect of the design. Linking the dining area to the living room is a custom-made walnut console, two white stools and contemporary art. A column, bulbous pieces of French pottery and Median wall sconces round out the arrangement.
The living room has two cream-fabric vintage chairs of contrasting designs, a pale marble coffee table and a sofa covered in outdoor linen fabric, which is also used on a couch in a den and the kitchen stools.
