This is just too incredibly gorgeous not to share. It is a classic home with classic details that are perfectly up to date.
At her impeccably tailored Hamptons getaway, fashion star Tory Burch lives life to the fullest
The garden façade.
Tory Burch, in the sylvia gown from her fall 2017 collection, stands next to a celebrated Diego Giacometti table in the entrance hall. Carpet by Stark.
From the moldings to the black-and-white floor, original architectural details are front and center in westerly’s ground-floor hallway. Louis XVI chairs and benches.
The library features sofas by Albert Vitiello decorators, upholstered in a Robert Kime linen. Red bamboo chairs cushioned in a Fortuny print.
Quadrille paper covers the walls of the sunroom. A vintage Karl Springer linen-wrapped cocktail table sits on a rug by Stark. The sofa wears a Quadrille print.

In the dining room, Stephen Antonson tables are set with a mix of china including Dodie Thayer for Tory Burch lettuceware and Tory Burch spring meadow glasses. Antique chairs painted chalky white with seat cushions of a Les Indiennes cotton. Custom Iksel Decorative Arts wall covering and curtains; La Manufacture Cogolin carpet.
A set of 17th-Century porcelain plates salvaged from a shipwreck hangs above an Italian neoclassical sofa. Rug by Patterson Flynn Martin; baskets by Homenature.
Zuber’s exuberant bamboo adorns the powder-room walls.
A classic Colefax and Fowler floral sets the tone in the master bedroom of Westerly, Tory Burch’s Southampton home. The painted George III–style four-poster is dressed in D. Porthault linens; Carlo Bugatti chairs flank the fireplace; botanical prints by Renzo Mongiardino; La Manufacture Cogolin carpet.

Rather than the opulent backdrop for leisure the house was built to be, Westerly now functions as something of a lab—a source of inspiration and a tool for conjuring ideas for her collections. The master bedroom upstairs—probably the room most people would have finished first—has only just been completed. With its pale faux-stone diamond pattern–painted floor and potted topiaries, Colefax and Fowler floral chintz, and framed botanical prints, it is overtly feminine and an enchanting homage to Bunny Mellon, whose fabled house in Antigua Burch recently bought and is decorating with Romualdez. But that high/low, beauty-by-contrast thread runs even here amid all this loveliness, in the surprise appearance of a pair of rare and theatrical Carlo Bugatti chairs flanking the fireplace—pieces one might rather expect to find in a room by Peter Marino than by Bunny Mellon. In decorating as in fashion, no guts, no glory.
