Summer House

One of Anthony’s favorite rooms of the house is the double story living room/great room, featuring a huge custom area rug he designed, made by Stark Carpet. Other pieces Anthony designed for this room include the custom sofa by De Angelis, NYC and the Celtic design needlepoint pillows made by Lois Chernin.

Anthony Baratta designed this newly built summer house on a seaside pond in the Hamptons for a couple, their children and grandchildren. The color scheme was inspired by the natural surroundings of the house: sea and sand. It is a beautiful blue-grey-green with khaki and white neutrals. Furnishings and color scheme are balanced by antique pine millwork, mahogany furniture and antiques with blue and white Delft accents.

Anthony’s other favorite room is the dining room because he loves creating oval rooms. The room is anchored by a pair of pewter chandeliers by Price Glover, NYC and custom hand-painted wall tiles by Solar Antique Tiles, NYC.

His clients wanted a house they could use in the summer with their extended families. They wanted it to be sophisticated yet casual since they are at the beach. There are two separate wings for the owners and their guests. One of Anthony’s challenges was to make an authentic shingle style house for modern living.

The Master Suite features custom Anthony Baratta designed carpet by Stark Carpet and king bed made by Thomas Newman, NJ.

In the Master Bath the Tigerwood maple vanity and medicine cabinets were made by Thomas Newman, NJ and the wallpapers are custom Anthony Baratta designs.

The owners love to entertain inside and out, so a beautiful pool and relaxed porch area featuring wicker furniture by Bielecky was built. Anthony has worked for the family for almost 30 years and they have done many projects together. He says, “The clients have exquisite taste and it’s always a pleasure working with them because they support our creativity and understand the process of building a custom home.”
