It’s been 26 years since Martha Stewart purchased her home on one acre along Lily Pond Lane in East Hampton, New York. The house needed much work but, naturally, Martha saw the potential and took on the challenge of a complete renovation to make it her own. The home has been designed…and redesigned (a woman after my own heart!) and the gardens overhauled. I wouldn’t expect anything less from Ms. Martha. The interiors were redone a few years ago in soothing tones of neutrals including khakis, buttercreams, beiges, and greiges. There is even a touch of pink. The home also incorporates what I like to consider one of Martha’s trademark design tricks: painting the walls and the casework one color. Overall, the home doesn’t feel overly decorated. In fact, with the exception of a few rooms, it’s quite simple in design. It’s proof that good design doesn’t have to be fussy.I don’t know about you, but I never tire of visiting Martha at home. If you enjoyed this home tour and want to take a look at Martha’s first home, Turkey Hill, you can read my post here.
