A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Hamptons once again. This time I was the guest of Frank Randolph who is one of Washington DC's most talented interior designers.
He welcomed me into his beautiful summer rental house in Southampton right on South Main Street. We spent days at the ocean and antiquing in  charming villages. Nights were spent having delicious and beautiful dinners shared by Franks many friends outside on the deck.
Sometimes I think the natural beauty of the Hamptons is underappreciated.It is so easy to get caught up in all the glamour and fabulous restaurants that you forget there you are in the middle of one of the most beautiful places on the east coast. The trees, flowers, ocean and unique quality of the light take your breath away.
The following photos are a visual diary of my brief and wonder filled visit starting with still lifes of Franks house and finishing with the outdoor beauty of the Hamptons.


I also managed to attend the East Hampton Antiques Show at historic Mulford Farm which is as interesting and beautiful as the antiques on display. Among the best dealers are David Bell and Tom Preston of David Bell Antiques(located in the Georgetown area of Washington DC) who deal in mid century modern. David who has been in the antiques business for quite some time always manages to find some of the most unique pieces on the market. In my excitement taking photos I forgot to keep notes of the other antiques dealers who objects I have included in the following photos. Many apologies to those who are not mentioned by name.
