Above, interior design, Ruthie Sommers; photography, Don Freeman for House Beautiful, June 2007. The orange-and-white wallpaper is Thibaut's South Beach.
My Ruthie Sommers notebook keeps growing. The latest tear sheets to be added feature this breezy 18th-century beach house originally restored by another much admired designer, Steven Gambrel. Bringing even more flair to the Sag Harbour home, the owners are J. Crew's head of marketing, Margot Brunelle Fooshee, and her husband. Of course, everything here is crisp, understated and colorful. To see more, pick-up a copy of the June House Beautiful. A summer house by Meg Braff is also featured, along with Michael Smith's amazing breakfast room -- it's a great issue!
