In addition to residential work, their commercial clients include a well-known fitness chain to law firms and hedge funds on both coasts. One would imagine a modernist design aesthetic, but Lucie Ayres, the Prague-born founder and principal designer, with her extensive travels, has a distinctly painterly European style with a hint of Californian pop. It translates to soothing, prosperous, and inspired.

Last August Ayres completed their first Hamptons project — an Amagansett new build farmhouse that feels like another time and place once inside. The client desired a more pastoral country home rather than a beach house. They were so enamored by the new interior that they moved their family there full time.

Upon first inspection, the home has a bucolic feeling throughout — but look closely and you will notice unusual pops of color, a custom Hamptons-centric wallpaper, basketweave objects, shiplap ceilings, and vintage-like daybeds, wrought-iron, and tailored headboards.

Neutral walls from white to sisal modern wallpaper perform the balanced canvas to classic furnishings with every room showcasing at least one pop of color to break the achromatic color story. French doors that lead to the outdoor space, a Tuscan cutting board, Tall camel-hued curtains from the living quarters to the bedrooms tie the story together.

The neutral color story is shocked into focus with various shades of greens — the accent color of 2022. The home’s cottage mood lends its style to chandeliers, headboards, textiles and accessories like vintage tennis rackets, horseshoes, and other objects d’arts. Ayres’ Amagansett interior pulls its habitants into a lost time and place that always feels nostalgically unflustered with her touch of casually curated California.
