Inside a Media Entrepreneur’s Minimalist, Modern Beach House
Pamela Schein Murphy’s Hamptons home is the ultimate summer getaway.
While we’re all for NYC rooftop parties and boat rides to Governors Island for a few dozen oysters, oftentimes the best thing about summer in the city is leaving it. (Just walk into a subway station on a 95-degree day, and you’ll understand why.) So it’s no surprise that each weekend from June to September, hundreds of city-dwellers escape to Long Island for some much-needed beach time. For native New Yorker and founder of The Select 7 Pamela Schein Murphy, that means a visit to her idyllic Hamptons home.
With floor-to-ceiling windows, a soothing, neutral color palette, and oceanfront views, the space is pretty much the ultimate summer getaway. And don’t even get us started on the pool… It’s the stuff of dreams. We stopped by a few weeks ago to get the lowdown on how she created a modern beach house, how a laptop is all you need to run a successful business, and why you should never underestimate an IKEA kitchen set.
