Locust Valley- and New York- based Designer Jeff Lincoln Gets Away From It All at a Charming Cottage in Southampton

Locust Valley- and New York- based Designer Jeff Lincoln Gets Away From It All at a Charming Cottage in Southampton

"When it came to designing the interiors," writes Jeff Lincoln of his Southampton cottage, "I decided to embrace the cottage-y style of my house, rather than try to make it into something it’s not. While I am very decisive about what’s best for my clients, I am less so when it comes to my own place. It’s a fairly common conundrum for interior decorators: Confronted with so much choice for themselves, they often don’t do much in the end.

Boscobel, an 1805 Beauty Overlooking the Hudson River, Is More Resplendent Than Ever During This Special Time of Year

It’s hard to believe it was almost a teardown. “Boscobel, an early architectural treasure in the Hudson River Valley, is ready for the scrap heap,” read a May 12, 1955, article in The New York Times. The Federal-era jewel had been languishing since 1923, when Westchester County bought the circa-1805 house and land, in the riverside hamlet of Montrose, with the intention of creating a park. But it remained vacant and began to slide into decay, and in 1941, the county’s parks department decided to raze it.

With the Help of Designer Larry Laslo, a Lifelong Collector Puts Her Unerring Eye to the Test

For Alice Netter, walking into her new Hamptons beach house in 1977 required vision—as well as a tool belt. “It was pretty bad,” she says. “There was a turquoise floor and metal valances with pompons. For the first two months, I walked around with a screwdriver in my pocket, taking everything down.”

Designer Robert Couturier Decorates a Brooklyn Brownstone for a Very Important Person--His Own Lawyer

It’s said that word of mouth is the best advertising for any business—whether you’re looking for an attorney or a designer. But for decorator Robert Couturier and his lawyer, David Berger, referrals weren’t even necessary when it came to doing business together. Berger had been looking to upgrade the decor in his four-story Cobble Hill townhouse, so he knew exactly the man to call. “David has been my attorney for a long time, and we are quite close,” says Couturier. “The entire design process was a wonderful experience."

The Designer Showhouse of New York

The Designer Showhouse of New York

What do you get when you take 22 design firms and set them loose on the 55th and 56th floors of the luxury Residences at W New York – Downtown? A showhouse to end all showhouses, full of brilliant decor, amazing ideas, and breathtaking views of Lower Manhattan’s Financial District. NYC&G was proud to sponsor the project, which raised funds for the new Lenox Hill HealthPlex in Greenwich Village and set the bar even higher for great design in New York.

On Fire Island, Bromley Caldari Architects Reinvents a 1960s A-Frame Overlooking Great South Bay

Several times a day at our home in Fire Island Pines, the same scene plays out. Visitors, in knots of twos or threes, stand unannounced in our entryway, craning their necks to get a glimpse of the suspended staircase dangling like sculpture above the 18-foot-high living room. “Excuse me, but we’ve known this house since we were little, and we’ve been watching it change the past few years, and well . . . .” At this point, my partner, Doug Harris, and I usually invite them in.

It’s a long way from Down Under to downtown New York—literally and figuratively—but for New Zealand–born fashion designer Rebecca Taylor, the trip has really paid off. After studying her craft at a polytechnic university in the Kiwi capital of Wellington, she decamped for Manhattan in 1992 and never looked back.
