Dusk is a favorite time of day in the Hamptons. Visualize taking time out, reading, lounging, or just sipping a martini. The round rug, hand-painted by Rory Conway, adds refreshing energy to the space. Missoni table; lounge chairs from Tui Lifestyle. Photograph by Peter Dressel.

This screened-in porch combines practicality and visual harmony with resin dining chairs, wicker and glass–top dining table, and steel/glass hurricane lamps. Floors are a durable olive stone while the ceiling is painted ice blue to deter bugs from nesting. An elegant setting for a summer dinner party. Photo by Christopher Wesnofske.

This outdoor kitchen boasts solid teak cabinetry, river stone hardware, and glass backsplash – all perfect for an outdoor setting. Sink, fridge and stove keep the owners from having to run to the house while entertaining or just relaxing poolside. Photo by Christopher Wesnofske.

This outdoor poolside changing room is convenient for guests and keeps wet swimsuits (and feet) out of the house.

Eugénia created a fantasy world for this Amagansett "Idea House" veranda: a calming tented oasis draped in sheer fabric; an intimate dining table to share good food and wine with family and friends; and a tranquil sitting area with river stone floor. Photo by Christopher Wesnofske.

The Eric Von Lustbader home would not be complete without a Japanese Tatami Room – a tranquil space for meditation and relaxation. Tatami mats form a geometrical pattern on the floor, bamboo mats cover the ceiling, and pocket doors open to a peaceful garden. Photo by Durston Saylor.

The Tatami Room opens to a tranquil outdoor space, creating a seamless transition between the meditation room and the serene rock garden. Looking in, the wide–open doorway nicely frames art and furnishings. Photo by Durston Saylor.

The full drama of the Lustbader home is revealed in the back of the house. Large windows, sliding glass doors and wraparound decks open up to Shinnecock Bay, a pool, volcanic rock gardens, sculptures and a waterfall. Inspiration beyond words. Photo by Durston Saylor.

Eugénia worked her design magic while collaborating with Bates-Masi Architects. A tired East Hampton saltbox house was transformed into a grownup, user–friendly space – not unlike the plain Jane from high school who turns into a beauty queen. The original lines were respected while creating a stunning contemporary space. Photo by Christopher Wesnofske.

Designing a Potting Room for an old gracious Southampton show house gave Eugénia an opportunity to exhibit her international flair.
