It's girly and done in a thrift style that reminds one of English cottages. In fact the owner is an English decorator names Podge Bune, who explains her unusual name, "I was a 12-pound baby. When I came out, the midwife said, 'What a podge!' and that was it."
|Chintz and pink! And I know you love the huge fish wich is an old fishmongers sign|
|A clever built in bookcase in the dining room - I have something similar in my dining room, but not this nice|
|You know I am a plate queen just a heartbeat away from being a hoarder, so these are quickening my pulse|
|Sweet blue chest looks like it might have come out of the old Ruby Beets store on the Montauck Highway|
|The perfect beach bedroom, complete with a posy of blue hydrangea, the flower most identified with the Hamptons - Where's my long white cotton nightdress?|
|A very cute bathroom vanity - Note the old mirror and how pretty the very common hardware store handles and knobs are, and of course the chandelier is to die for, all tricked English style with little shades|
|The back deck with a water view and access - this I did not have - I had to walk across the street and put a two person red kayak in the pond behind The Springs General Store|
|Podge's water view - Love the weathered driftwood posts|
|A little garden shed painted green and pink - so very un-Hamptons and so very cute|
|The front of the house of Podge Bune is perfection and very un-Hampton|
