Modern shingle-style beach house on the world-renowned Meadow Lane. Perched amidst the dunes, in the exclusive oceanfront Southampton enclave, this 5,300-square-foot, six-bedroom home comprises 4.5 acres of some of the most breathtaking property in the Hamptons. Views of the Atlantic Ocean and Shinnecock Bay serve as the focal point of this experience--accentuated through design featuring large windows and balconies--as panoramic waterfront vistas envelop two levels of terraces and expansive first- and second level entertaining areas. With 220 feet of direct oceanfront, endless indoor/outdoor entertaining areas, and a private walkway over the dunes, this Meadow Lane modern home makes no concessions when it comes to luxury.
Sometimes we’re asked to match an existing decorative finish, usually when there’s plumbing or electrical that needs tending to, and sometimes that finish can be without sunlight or under low sconce-lit artificial light. Matching the basecoat and glaze color can still be achieved, but sometimes you can find a hidden gem - the original formula - in places like behind switchplates. In these photos, I have not modified the color or brightness so you can see how dark the room is - my hand is about 2 shades darker than it should be. Now, this happens to be an old finish and done rather poorly, so it’s common to find the formulae behind switchplates in these situations. When I took off the plate, turned it over, I can tell there is an oil-based oil in white, an oil satin finish in an off white - probably in an OC-2 range - and then a matte/flat opaque glaze in a raw sienna tone. My work here will be easy from here on in ;)
