"Keep it casual, it's not for Sunday."
The home's owner expressed this sentiment at the beginning of the project and it became the guiding force behind the design of Six Swans, a stunning newer home with a decidedly old soul. East Hampton architect Frank Greenwald based the home's traditional lines on a combination of several styles of the past, creating a beautiful structure that fits perfectly with the stately abodes found in Southampton's estate section. Interior Designer Steven Gambrel's masterful use of distressed woodwork, reclaimed stone, applied leather and plasterwork and custom and vintage pieces created carefully composed, yet wonderfully casual rooms-a stunning expression of effortless style and a well-lived life.
