Carrier & Co: Architectural Digest

Have you picked up the June issue of Architectural Digest yet? One of our favorite interior design duo’s, husband and wife Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller, have designed the interiors of a beautiful South Hampton home. We love Carrier & Co’s easy elegance and unfussy way of curating spaces to look like they have been collected over many years. Below, in formal living room, Jesse and Mara used one large coffee table and two smaller ones to fill the space between two matching sofas. While this room is all about symmetry (two sofas, two club chairs, two standing lamps), the designers didn’t allow the room to read formulaic through their interesting choice of coffee tables and slightly mismatched side tables. Jesse and Mara create rooms that are fresh and chic but still feel timeless and very all-American. cc1The beautiful symmetry continues on the other side of the living room (below), thrown off slightly by a small drinks table on one side of a club chair, a basket by the fireplace and an occasional chair on one wall. cc2In the kitchen a custom Ann-Morris pot rack light fixtures is suspended from the ceiling. cc5The cozy library, paneled in honey-tone knotty pine, features a colorful Italian marble-top cocktail table from the early 20th century.  The carpeting is Woodard and Greenstein. cc3The dining room is one of our favorite rooms in the house and shows off Carrier & Co’s great talent of melding antiques from different periods. Here they group a circa-1800 tiger-maple sideboard, a Regency-style mahogany dining table, and Georgian-style walnut dining chairs–all American, but all from distinctly different times. cc4The lovely screened-in porch and outdoor area. cc20We love the combination of the subtle green walls and bright Kathryn Ireland fabric used on the bed valences and skirts. More American charm is added in with quilts from the homeowner’s collection. cc8In the master bedroom, creamy yellow, olive green and pale blue walls create a serene setting. ccAbove, the sitting room off the master bedroom, the husband’s library (fabulous use of Eskayel’s wallpaper!), and the wife’s bathroom. Do you want to spend a weekend this summer at this house as much as we do? (All photos from Architectural Digest).

    This lavish piece of sofa has given my drawing hall a complete make-over. I love to decorate my house like this. Please help me.

    I loves all rooms, however the living room is overstuffed. Three different coffee tables and two sofas and all the decor around somehow looks overwhelming. The rest is amazing though!
