as you know i’m a little obsessed with woody house, i’ve featured this long island retreat more than once already in the last few weeks- see here and here. the house and the garden is featured in the new book called out east by my friend jennifer ash rudick. jennifer and vendome were kind enough to share some more pictures of woody house with me. now we get to go on tour of the garden, which is also on the cover of the new veranda this month.
i can’t wait for out east to come out in a few weeks, just in time for summer. the book explores the cool breezes, miles of pristine beaches, and vast, open farmland that has long been been the attraction of “the hamptons.” jennifer, a resident of southampton herself, captures shingled houses, modernist oceanfront designs, artists’ compounds, and Montauk surf shacks. from what i’ve seen there are going to be a lot more homes just as beautiful as woody house. out east is going to be amazing and be the book of the season.
ironically i’m heading out east next week. my first stop will be newport, then i will be off to the hamptons myself (i’ll share more on what’s taken me there in a few day). i cannot wait to take in summer out east.
thank you jennifer- you and the homes you let us visit inspire!
