Craving simplicity, Ralph Pucci and his wife opted for a modest bungalow in the Hamptons for their first beach home which was recently featured in Elle Decor.  Modest may not be what you would expect from one of the design world’s  best. In 2012 Manhattan Magazine chose Pucci as ‘best furniture gallery in New York’. Interior Design said ‘one of the best of the year in interiors, architecture, fashion and design’. However, for rest and relaxation, the Pucci vacation home had to be far from ostentatious. The Pucci’s were looking for a chic and sophisticated decor and that’s exactly what Vicente Wolf delivered.  He had previously  decorated three homes for the family and was given full reign to design their get away dwelling. Against a creamy white back drop,the mix of mid-century modern with a bit of antiques from Wolf’s collection and the Pucci’s art and found objects such as driftwood and seashells contribute to the no fuss and laid back decor exactly what the Pucci’s craved.  With a dream location, they enjoy the sunrise and eat lunch on a beautiful 1,100 sq ft. terrace  which literally backs up to the ocean. Minimal colors with a subtle range of blues and pale water-colored linens  pay homage to the  ocean and promote peace and tranquility.
