Space We Love: The Hampton’s Pool Patio by the Rinfret Group






Why we
love it …

This poolside spot in Sag Harbor, New York, feels classic but of-the-moment. The crisp colors and stripes are fresh—and just as inviting as the calm pool waters they accent.

The story …

Denise Rinfret and Missy Rinfret Minicucci, the mother-daughter duo behind Long Island-based Rinfret Design Group created this space as part of the 2016 Hampton Designer Showhouse. Paying homage to iconic Hamptons’ style, the space offers a fresh take on the traditional nautical palette. Soaked in soft blues and white, with just a hint of pink, it’s bright and inviting without overshadowing the house and natural beauty of the surrounding estate grounds.

“Everyone needs more entertaining space in the summer”

“Everyone needs more entertaining space in the summer,” Missy says of the three distinct seating areas they created. “We wanted to embrace the versatility of this space.” Using all-weather outdoor furniture, Denise and Missy were able to bring the comfort of interior styling outdoors. Modern accents – like geometric side tables – complement the showhouse’s modern interior and provide an unexpected touch to traditional Hamptons’ styling. And because every pool party needs a well-stocked bar, Denise and Missy created one with a cleverly placed console table. Tucked between the chaises, the seating area and the daybed, it allows guests to stop for a drink as they mingle.
