Interior: Home in the Hamptons

Canadian-born designer Amanda Nisbet relied on bold colours when designing this beach house in the Hamptons.

To hear her talk about design, you'd think that Canadian-born Amanda Nisbet of Amanda Nisbet Design had a secret life as an anchorperson on a weather channel. She mentions the bleak light of February days, the shadows and dampness of gloomy November afternoons. She calls forward the humid, white heat of mid-August and the sombre mornings of rain in early May. "You have to think about days like these when you're choosing colour for a beach house," she says, moving in on her point. "For example, a blue-and-white scheme is wonderful when the sun is shining and the water is sparkling, but not every day of the year is like that."
