Emmy award winning actress Candice Bergen easily transplanted her West Coast casualness into a home she shares with husband Marshall Rose in East Hampton. Transporting her easy interior design look into this handsome shingle-style home sited on lush ample grounds took some adaptation from both the architect and Mr. Rose who had a long history with the home. When Bergen came into Rose's life, the bones of their country home were stark and the living spaces were divided into a formal plan. With help from a noted urban interior designer, Bergen accomplished her goal of lightening, harmonizing and relaxing, what is still a "statement house."
Long covered verandas provide outside dining and entertaining areas, back-dropped by expansive windows which flood the interior with natural light. Deeply cushioned chairs and sofas, oodles of books, and splashes of color make this a coveted destination for Bergen and Rose. Texture is an important ingredient here, carpets, wall hangings and draperies, though never heavy, add a warmth and scale to what could be a voluminous building. Carefully selected accessories compliment and add interest throughout a home that oozes style, but one that beckons you to interact and luxuriate in it.
