I’ve never been to the Hamptons, but whenever I see pics of houses in that area, I’m always smitten. I think me and the Hamptons would get along just fine. It looks so serene, pretty, and relaxing up there. Makes me think of the Kennedys, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, all places I have never been. Maybe one day, I’ll visit that amazing area, but for now I’ll just have to enjoy these pics.
House Beautiful always delivers some gorgeous eye candy and this Hampton’s Country Home in red, white and vintage is another winner.
Creating a wonderful, weathered home in Bridgehampton, New York, design consultant Ellen O’Neill showcases the softer side of red.
I thought you would enjoy these too and I hope you do!
There’s something so pretty about all the white walls and the soft reds in contrast. Don’t you love that red and white toile? Toile is one of my fave fabrics to love.
This fireplace mantel is just plain yummy!
How cozy this cute doggie looks hanging out on the sofa.
Those red chairs sure pop in that room.
What is yummier than a black and white floor in an all-white kitchen?
Ahh, pure blissful scenes to take in.
This red and white bedroom is pretty cozy too.
Clawfoot tub and a red and white striped rug. What is not to love?
More red and white toile. Who loves toile??
This bedroom is a little stark with all white and no color, but peaceful all the same.
So, what did you think of the Hampton’s cottage? Did you love it? Is it somewhere you could spend your time and relax?

Love that she’s got comfortable fabrics in a ‘beachy place’. The red toiles, mantel, and that huge vase are too die for. Would be a nice place to rent for Valentine’s day! For me, it’s a little more red than I could tolerate in the family room….would be red-overload, and I would need to add a pop of color in the ‘white room’. Would still be a glorious place to spend some time, barefoot!

I love toile! And, I have often thought of taking a weekend to meander through those lovely towns in the Hamptons, thanks for the “tour”. I do love my trips to the Cape and the occasional visit to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, definitive locales for New England style.

I love the red and whites, very calming and soothing…
I do love pops of red in my home. I guess I would, though, seeing I’m married to a retired fireman. 🙂
Oh I just love this house! Coming from the shores of New England, I’m more used to seeing beach houses with blue decor, but I have to say this red and white is the best!

I use to work as a nanny when I was in college for a lovely family that lived in Bridgehampton for the summer. They left their house a tad undecorated adding to the relaxed simple vibe. But white rooms, open french doors and scattered rare rugs with “real” modern art is perfect on it’s own. It was beautiful, relaxed, lovely just as you would imagine. ~Chris Ann
It was a pleasure meeting you and working with you during the shoot. I am now a follower! Hope to see you again soon. Blessings and prayers to you always.
I’m so doing a red and white room somewhere! So cheery!

This red color scheme is quite extraordinary. And the mantel, definitely very yummi!! The Hamptons are gorgeous. So many picturesque towns out there. And the tip (Montauk) is just so very special…., plus the beaches are fabulously long and wide.

The red chairs are my favorite in this collection of photos. Love to decorate with red and these are some great ideas!
I love this cottage and love the Hamptons! The bedroom is a bit stark for my taste but I love the combination of white walls and red, white and black accents. The rooms are all beautifully done and doggies on the couches and chairs always warm my heart.
Where did you buy all the stuff for the bed
