A Hamptons Home

Hi Everyone!

I'm home again, at least for a few more days!

Weather is improving here on the island.........the sun is finally coming out, so maybe we can enjoy some warmth for a few days.

The home featured today is by Carrier and Co. Architects............a summer home for Anna Wintour.

Love the casual, comfortable and country feel to this house.......the soft colors and the artwork.

American Coastal Retreat

In keeping with our international cottage and country decorating theme, I am today featuring the summer home of Galen and Hilary Weston, who are the owners of Canada's Loblaws Grocers, Atlantic Superstores, Holt Renfew in Toronto and Selfridge's in London, to name a few of their retail establishments.  Galen was named by Forbes magazine this year as the second wealthiest person in Canada with an estimated fortune of $7.1 billion.  Understandably, this is not a 'typical' coastal retreat......this is something only the very, very wealthy would have access to, so it is definitely worth a peek!

Galen began his career as a bag boy in his family's bakery business and through hard work, education and determination salvaged the floundering company in the 1970s and went on from there.

So, when their latest home appeared in AD this week, I was fascinated.  It was built in their own community in Florida which was developed in the 90s called Windsor 'A Village by the Sea' ....... and the interiors were designed by John Stefanidis, who has worked with them on several of their other homes.
