Tory Burch is funny, a great athlete and loves children. She is a fashion icon, irreverent and so much more. She is a trend setter and this is why today Home Decor Ideas blog will take a look at the inside of her amazing house. Her house is an enormous 1929 Georgian house in Southampton and it is completely decorated by Daniel Romualdez.
“When Burch acquired the house in 2008, it was during the darkest days of the financial crisis, when pretty much no one was acquiring anything. She had intended to build a place on the water, and designs had been drawn and permit acquired. But when the statelier inland option came on the market, it inspired her to discard those plans and buy boldly. What Burch gave up in terms of water views she got back in scale, dignity, and seven acres of expansive gardens, today redesigned with achingly beautiful results by landscape architect Perry Guillot”.
At 15,000 square feet, this has always been one of the biggest houses in Southampton. It is also, for the area, an unusually formal one: In the land of shingle and white-painted clapboard, Westerly’s red brick, black shutters, and slate roof stand out.
Now let’s take a look into the most outstanding interior design and get inspired with some brilliant decoration ideas.
The decoration is cosy yet bold. We believe this to be the perfect design combination. We are in love with the beautiful home decor.
The bedroom the decor is equally amazing. The patterns are perfect for a house in the middle of such a beautiful grass field and of course, the fireplace is simply the final perfect touch.
Patterns, patterns, patterns! Everything matches beautifully, the wallpaper, the carpet and the bed sheets. Very bold choices but the final results are amazing.
If buying such a house might be overwhelming, decorating a property its size is a truly daunting proposition. “We didn’t start empty,” explains Romualdez. “I said to Tory, ‘This house is vast—let’s keep things until we find something we like better.’ ” They took small bites: Remember, most people in a position to do so today do not choose to live on this scale and look at running a house like Westerly as just a lot of work. Burch enjoys it.
Now that the house is basically complete, Romualdez explains that “the way Westerly has been decorated is the way a lot of those houses were done before decorators played such a role.” What he means: Inherited furniture, a personal style built on instinct, and a sense of patina built up over generations. Like an English country house, or maybe something in Maine.
This is one of our favourite places in the entire house. A beautiful outdoor dining area, where you can dine while having a great view into the yeard and the swimming pool.
