See How Vince Camuto Restored His Jazz Age Manor in the Hamptons

The fashion entrepreneur and his wife and business partner, Louise, restore Villa Maria—one of Long Island’s most majestic homes, with an enchanting waterfront setting—to its original grandeur

Villa Maria, a historic residence in Water Mill, New York, was dramatically updated by new owners Louise and Vince Camuto, in collaboration with Andre Tchelistcheff Architects and CarolEgan Interiors.

A chandelier from Mecox hangs in the entrance hall, where a wrought-iron balustrade lines the serpentine staircase; the faux-limestone walls are by decorative painter Jerzy Kubina, and the circa-1890 Régence-style sconce is from David Duncan Antiques.

In the media room, brass chandeliers from English Country Antiques overlook slipcovered seating by Montauk Sofa.

The dining room, sheathed in Venetian plaster by Kubina, displays a Donald Baechler work on paper atop the mantel; the bespoke sideboard is by Daniel Scuderi Antiques.

In the breakfast room, a chandelier from English Country Antiques is suspended above a Lars Bolander iron table with a bleached-oak top.
The kitchen, painted in a Benjamin Moore white, features custom-made holophane lights by Ann-Morris Antiques and cabinetry by Eppley Building & Design; the oak bench and ebonized bobbin chair are antique.
Carrara marble was used for the counters as well as the backsplash above the Wolf range; the pot filler and sink fittings are by Waterworks.
The paneled gallery is furnished with a pair of circa-1820 daybeds from Anglo-Raj Antiques and a 19th-century English turned armchair.
In the master suite, an 18th-century Swedish corona from Dienst + Dotter Antikviteter complements the Ralph Lauren Home bed and linens. At the foot of the bed is a TV cabinet designed by Egan and covered in a Bergamo horsehair.
The master bath’s custom-made marble tub features Waterworks fittings.
Bronze-and-leather stools flank a limestone table in the atrium; the wood sculpture is a 1985 piece by Mario Dal Fabbro from Maison Gerard, and the hanging lantern and tile floor are original to the home.
The west terrace, ornamented with carved stone urns, looks out to a limestone fountain framed by hydrangeas.
The sandstone-paved pool terrace is outfitted with furniture by Janus et Cie.
Edmund D. Hollander Landscape Architect Design oversaw the grounds.
