The Simply Luxurious Life®: SJP’s Home in Bridgehampton

SJP’s Home in Bridgehampton

To have a summer home to escape to during the hot weather inland would be ideal.  Someday, someday – this will be a reality.  A coastal home most definitely would be my choice.  I simply can’t wait to utter the words, I’m going to my house on the beach for the week, I’ll see you when I return (refreshed, invigorated and rearing to go!).

Since it is that time of year when so many people on the east coast escape to the Hamptons, I thought I’d share with you Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick’s home in Bridgehampton.  Decorated by Eric Hughes, their home is very low-key, casual and comfortable.  At first it was nothing that I expected, but the more I began to ponder why someone with such a fashionable profile might want a home with such simplicity and calm, it made complete sense.  Photographed by William Waldron for Elle Decor (May 2006), the furniture and decor is an eclectic assortment of high and low end – a little IKEA here, a few pieces of beautiful art there. Have a look.

Built in 1865, the prominent landowner displayed his favoring of a Victorian style.  The lush, full green landscape isn’t over powering, but clearly done with a master plan in mind (landscape design by Ricks Lee).

All major kitchen appliances are by Viking and the print (possibly to remind them of home?)is Uno la Mela by Enzo Mari from Moss.

The Egyptian handblown-glass chandelier from Liza Sherman Antiques hangs above the dining room table surrounded by a collection of vintage chairs.

In the master bedroom, the curtain panels are from IKEA, and the ceramic lamp is by Christopher Spitzmiller.

The 1940s mirrored desk from Laurin Copen Antiques  adds an old Hollywood feel and a portrait of Parker and Broderick by Pamela Hanson sits above.

SJP looks really good in that photo. That's so down-to-earth of them to have a fairly normal-looking house with Ikea! I'm loving that seating area by the windows but I would have done the bathroom differently (not enough storage space for all my beauty bottles!).

It's beautiful! I would love to have a relaxing haven like that to escape to. You're so right though, it's definitely not what I would have expected.

What a stunning home! I wonder if they need a caretaker for it?? ;-)

Not what I would have expected at all -- I would have thought a little softer, more glam. Maybe Matthew was in charge?? Still, very nice and, oh yes, I would happily relax there! Thanks for the peek!
