Amagansett Beach Abode

In 2005, Jarlath Mellett fashion designer turned interior decorator/ shop owner, opened up his design firm and boutique in Amagansett NY, on the South shore of Long Island. This cottage, he designed for a young family on the move. It had to be relaxed and simple. Mellet,'s design que? Natural fibers just as he would use when designing clothing, and uncomplicated furnishings.  Nothing about this home is complicated or fussy..It is all about proportion and  fit. Always thinking like a fashion designer first, he had to  find his  inspiration. For this home he was inspired by a relaxed, rustic, unexpected chic. This family cottage is light and airy,with a sophisticated understated elegance.
