Speaking of the Hamptons . . . Forever handsome Richard Gere and his lovely wife, actress Carey Lowell, recently sold their home in the Hamptons for $5.9 million. According to the Wall Street Journal, the new owner paid about a third less than the asking price. Fortunately for us, the WSJ has a slideshow allowing us to peek inside this 7BR home, which sits on 1.2 acres in Water Mill, NY.
The approaching winter clearly has us obsessed with fireplaces right now. We hated the one in Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons' NJ estate. But we loved the fireplaces in Barefoot Contessa/Ina Garten and Jason Winer's homes. And we love the one in this bedroom below:
Okay, so it's not glamorous, but it has a rustic country feel that we like.
Likewise for the kitchen above and dining room below.
Mismatched chairs always make us feel like we can relax. This looks like a perfect spot for Thanksgiving dinner--something else that's also on our minds lately!
Tell us what you think. Would you prefer an informal dining room like Richard and Carey's or a more formal dining room for Thanksgiving?
