The Baldwin home in East Hampton is the perfect family escape from Manhattan. Actor/producer Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria renovated an 18th century shingle-style farmhouse in Amagansett, East Hampton into a bright and modern family home. With help from architect Fred Throo and interior designer Daniel Romanoff the home was expanded to make room for their growing family: 3-year-old Carmen, 1-year-old Rafael, and newborn baby Leonardo. An open floor plan, soft hues, and classic furniture are key to this comfortable and peaceful family home.

In actress Shay Mitchell’s Spanish-style Los Angeles home, a vintage lucite black chair and black painted console are tied together by a piece of contemporary art, creating a gorgeous black-and-white corner.
Fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger’s Miami home is replete with breathtaking modern design, and—of course—an all black-and-white interior. In the breakfast nook, a black lacquer circular table and vintage tulip-style chairs complete the monochrome look.
Parisian decorator Jean-Louis Deniot created an elegant black-and-white interior entrance with dark velvet curtains, stone tile flooring, antique engravings, and a Louis XVI-style chair upholstered in black leather.
This contemporary black-and-white interior in a 19th-century Brooklyn townhouse is both sleek and warm. Vintage armchairs are grouped with a black-and-white ottoman, while natural wood accents ground the space.
Designer Mark Zeff’s barn-style home in the Hamptons is anything but conventional. Black-and-white interiors are seen throughout modern home. Here, a black leather armchair is paired with a white side table.
Over his 20-plus-year career, New York interior designer Thomas Jayne has infused freshness into historic homes, flawlessly blending classic elements with modern. Featured on Architectural Digest‘s current AD100 list of leading American decorators and architects, Jayne was asked to describe his style: “hip and cool historic rooms,” he said. “I like old things, but I want them to look fresh – and that often comes from looking again at the old source and rethinking it in color, shape, and juxtaposition.”
With this Philadelphia Main Line home built in 1889, the owners enlisted Jayne’s help to blend the traditional Georgian architecture and antiques with their collection of postwar contemporary art. Throughout the home beautiful Empire-style antique armchairs, Regency chaise longues, and English side tables create a distinct backdrop for their bold artworks. Solid, neutral textiles avoid competition with the art. It’s a gorgeous take on a traditional home, and true to Jayne’s “hip and cool historic” style.

Floral wallpapers juxtaposed with Victorian taxidermy create a moody look in this 19th century Brooklyn brownstone. The seven bedroom, 4,400-square-foot brownstone built in the 1880s is located in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Park Slope. At first glance it seems traditional and relaxed, with dark antique tables and masculine chairs. Yet a closer look reveals a slight macabre touch.
Owners Tracy Martin and Vince Clark removed contemporary finishes from the previous owner, J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons. With the help of Design firm Roman and Williams, they played up the historic home’s beautiful bone structure with a moody color palette and edgy décor like skeleton prints and a framed “Mourning Hair” wreath. The result is chic, comfortable, yet incredibly unique.
