insta inspiration: tom samet

I’ve got quite the design crush these days on Hamptons interior designer Tom Samet and his classic, East Coast style, thanks to his enviable Instagram account – he does updated traditional so well through the use of color, pattern and texture (not to mention a healthy dose of Chinese Lattice wall covering) and beautiful layering.  Every picture he posts of a space he’s worked on looks not only sophisticated and elegant, but warm and welcoming, family friendly and ready for entertaining, which can be difficult to accomplish, but Samet nails it every time!  Here are a few posts I’m loving –  be sure to follow him @tomsamet!

Cedar shakes, crisp white trim, a Dutch front door, a second floor balcony covered in wisteria and gorgeous landscaping make for one heck of a charming, not to mention incredibly chic first impression:

Bob Collins Chinese lattice, a seagrass runner and a gilded mirror are absolute perfection in this stairway:

Board and batten walls, slate floors and a mix of wood and woven furniture are right up my alley in this pool house; I could spend all day every day right here!

A classic white kitchen that lives larger than its relatively small footprint.  Love the glassfronts, the oversize hardware on the paneled refrigerator and the drawers and cabinets facing the dining table:

Those woven chairs, moss covered pavers and outdoor fireplace make my heart skip a beat:

A gorgeous butler’s pantry with stunning wood countertops and more glassfront cabinets:

This guest bedroom is beautifully layered and while I normally gravitate to cooler tones in bedrooms, I’m loving the pops of muted red here:

Black and white photos look divine against a striated paint treatment and a pop of red from the banded Roman shade:

Tongue and groove paneling, slate flooring and a Dutch front door are a stunning first impression and a beautiful peek at what’s to come in the rest of this house:

The exterior of a remodel/renovation Samet worked on with landscape designer Michael Derrig; it doesn’t get more classic than black and white with pops of red:

A better shot of that striated paint treatment.  The jute chandelier and vintage oars are the perfect nautical nods:

That screened-in porch is my idea of outdoor perfection:

There’s so much more to love (I had to limit myself to posting only a few so as not to look like a complete stalker!)  Be sure to check him out @tomsamet.

Happy Hump Day!
