Interior designer Delia Brennen adores black-and-white interiors — her own Brooklyn townhouse is a testament to her love for the classic color scheme. So when her clients, a New York–based couple, requested that she transform their Sag Harbor house into a year-round retreat, she knew exactly what direction to take. “One of them wanted a totally dark space, with inky colors and brass,” she says. “But the other wasn’t entirely convinced. To compromise, we used dark details — black side tables and black leather chairs, for instance — but kept the walls white.” Brennen put a Jonathan Adler sofa and a Restoration Hardware coffee table in the living room, seen above, plus Clam floor lamps from MoMA, a glass Oda Pulpo floor light, and some vintage lounge chairs that overlook the pool. The art to the left of the glass door is by Júlio Leitão, and the carpet is from ABC Carpet & Home.
