Christie Brinkley's Hamptons Retreat
Get a rare look inside supermodel Christie Brinkley's eclectic, century-old house in the Hamptons.
Supermodel spokeswoman Christie Brinkley
lives with her children in this century-old mansion in the Hamptons, a prestigious community on the east side of Long Island, New York.
The two-story family room features intricate window designs, nautical accents and salmon-colored touches.
The sitting area next to Christie's kitchen is uber cozy, complete with a fireplace, and comfy sofa and chairs. Notice the unique seashell detailing around the fireplace, which Christie says she added herself.
The eat-in kitchen features French doors that lead to the home's terrace.
Christie's dining room mixes ethnic accents—like Chinese lanterns—with a more formal chandelier and a polished wooden table.
Being creative is important to Christie, which is why she does her own interior decorating and incorporates her shell artwork into the design.
The floor-to-ceiling potted plants and natural sunlight help Christie bring elements of the outside indoors.
Christie's sprawling 21-acre estate includes an art studio where she works on her drawings, shell artwork and other projects.
A working greenhouse also sits on Christie's sprawling property. "I'm so inspired by nature and the just endless beauty that I can find on the edge of the sea or here in my garden," she says.
