Alan IrwinAlana Irwin creates rooms that emphasize functionality and understated glamour: think clean lines, found objects, and statement art. For this pool house, she was inspired by the laid-back Hamptons lifestyle. “I pictured warm summer nights relaxing with friends in an open, airy pool house,” she says. Soft pastels like those in the Allyson Monson photograph and Juliska’s Floretta plates speak to the essence of summer entertaining. “I love that the overall vibe is relaxed, organic glamour,” the designer says.
