“I just import the people I want I don’t mind the town. It’s white trash, of course, but I don’t care,” Anna Wintour once said of her country home located in Bellport, Long Island. October’s World of Interiors magazine has a detailed look inside the converted farmhouse, with an article as told to ex-Voguer Sally Singer by Wintour, who says of the property adjoining her “summerhouse”:
It had an 1834 farmhouse, with loads of additions and 12 poky bedrooms. It had a perplexing reception room with difficult, though grand, proportions. It had lawns that tumbled down toward a beautiful-to-the-eye, toxic-to-everything-else river. It had nearly 25 acres of difficult trees in deer-infested woods. It was, as we say at Vogue, challenging.
Some people have bedbugs, Anna Wintour has… deer.
