When Rose Caiola Musacchia set out to redecorate her family’s Hamptons home she sought a design which would pay tribute to the home’s traditional shingle-style architecture yet also be instilled with elements of exotica from their travels. To accomplish this she looked to New York designer Young Huh who is known for bringing a global perspective to her projects.
“Rose had a distinct vision inspired by her passion for Moroccan and Indian art and design,”says Huh, who enjoys nothing more than bringing reminders of her clients’ great cultural experiences into their homes. To merge the traditional with a global point of view, Huh chose Anichini’s hand loomed Ara silk for the curtain panels in the master bedroom’s sitting area (above). This simple, raw handwoven silk speaks to another time and place. She also chose Anichini’s Kyoto Merino wool throw in Beige/Ivory. Its modern design with traditional Japanese symbols adds a quiet harmony to the space.
To infuse the home with a more modern and ethnic flair, Huh removed the existing, traditionally beachy elements. The inset panels with palm trees that lined the garden room were replaced with hand-blocked Indian wallpaper. Paired with an ikat for the curtain panels they transform the room into a modern, global, and sophisticated sanctuary. See more of the home tour at Traditional Home.
