Mid-Century Gold by Lillian August

Vintage Inspiration in the Hamptons

Looking to incorporate a dash of vintage-inspired design into your own living space, in a way that’s fresh, updated and organic? Look no further than this stunning Mid-Century Gold living room in the Hamptons, immaculately designed by our friends Nancy Galasso and Diane Karmen, senior designers at Lillian August. Gold is back in a big way these days, and this well-curated collection of accessories glows with the rich warmth of our favorite metallic tone. We’re just loving the layers of natural materials that appear everywhere in this room, from textured grasscloth wall coverings to live edge wood furniture, a natural hide rug and authentic coral. Large-scale plants are a real showstopper, as well! The REStyleSOURCE team is always a fan of any design that includes a lush, ceiling height fiddle-leaf fig tree–which is as much a classic mid-century look as the bold sunburst mirror it sits next to–and it compliments the organic shapes in the room perfectly.

Read on for design notes from Nancy and Diane, and for if you’re feeling inspired to take this MCM-influenced room home with you, then be sure to shop our REstyle picks below to see where you can get this look locally!

“The key elements in this room share an organic quality, while feeling really luxe and chic.”

H1Designers’ Notes

Challenges arise in any project, and this living room was no exception. When we first starting designing the room, the plans showed that one of the windows looked out onto a parking lot–not exactly ideal! We made sure that those lovely, drapey window treatments camouflaged that view nicely.

“The orange bar was an inspiration piece for the design of the room. We loved the happy color and lacquer finish — it just makes you smile. We added a handful of throw pillows in ‘Hermes orange’ to the sofa to continue the pops of color throughout the space.”

H2Designers’ Notes

The best examples of pieces that combine both the organic and luxurious qualities we were going for are the split-top console with acrylic legs and the root coffee table. We loved the console because it is a one-of-a-kind piece with a live edge top that is dressed up with a high gloss finish, and for an added dose of unexpected glamour, acrylic legs. It is inspired by nature while feeling very on-trend and polished. Likewise, the root coffee table references nature in a way that feels artistic, custom and chic.

“It was important to us that guests entering this space feel relaxed and comfortable. It’s the kind of room that invites you to sit down and hang out. And once you sit down in that ultra-comfy sofa, you’ll be inclined to stay a while!”
