The Zhush goes to the Hamptons

I thought while I was away on vacation that it would be appropriate to ask a few of my favorite bloggers to come over to Odi et Amo and guest blog about their favorite vacation homes (real or imagined). Today Sue from The Zhush will be kicking things off with a fantasy guest home in The Hamptons courtesy of one of my all-time favorite designers Steven Gambrel. It's got to be just about the most sophisticated beach house I could ever imagine. Sue, you've got to promise me that if you ever do get to live out this fantasy that you will invite me over for a long weekend -- deal?

Hi! I'm Sue from The Zhush. I'm such a fan of Averill's blog! When Averill asked if I would do a guest post, while she was away, I was more than happy to oblige
(that is, once I got over my seething jealous rage over her fabulous vacation).

Fittingly, Averill chose vacation homes as the topic du jour,
and I knew exactly what my ideal vacation home would be!

Since I have a mild fear of flying, and since we already have a little ski condo,
I began to daydream about The Hamptons!

I can drive there from my home, I love the beach, and since its my daydream, I would have Steven Gambrel design the whole place.

Join me as I create the fantasy beach house of my dreams!

It would have a beautiful and comfortable family room...
(preferably with gorgeous Missoni-esque furniture and a giant t.v.).

I would need a lovely space to email and catch up on all my favorite blogs.

A beautiful cozy breakfast nook would be the perfect place to host
some lovely, relaxed beach brunches.

Even the beach can get chilly sometimes, it would be so nice
to cozy up by the fire and read here.

For more formal "Hampton" type events, this gracious living room
would suit me just fine.

This bar and butler's pantry would be the perfect place to mix
up some cocktails for friends dropping by.

Of course we would have a fabulous basement too...
complete with wine cellar, private cinema and even a disco ball!

And, since this is a daydream...why not include the closet of my dreams...

I hope you enjoyed this "fantasy" vacation house.
