5.   How did the luxury lifestyle of the Hamptons Influence your design direction?   The mudroom was inspired by the East End’s beautiful beaches. We used the coloration of sea and sand by mixing various shades of blue and taupe in the rugs, fabrics and accessories. We dispelled three Barry Mcgee surfboards and a gorgeous rug from Stark Carpet
