Interior designer Jennifer Hunter
A city couple needed a change in their pace of life for their family during the height of the pandemic—so they looked to interior design dynamo Jennifer Hunter to craft their dream abode in a serious time crunch.

It’s no secret that the past two years presented the world with some unparalleled hurdles, so one New York City couple chose to relocate their family to Bridgehampton at the height of the pandemic to reinstate a sense of calmness into their lives. With two kids and a baby on the way, Tony and Ali McDevitt—a finance and real estate dynamic duo, respectively—sought out a designer who could craft the relaxing abode of their dreams while doing so in a limited time period.
Fun accents and pops of color bring life to the home
Talk about kitchen goals. The space sports clean lines and a neutral aesthetic.
The new-build home comprising 4,500 square feet of living space, four bedrooms, five bathrooms and a pool house took interior design maven Jennifer Hunter and her team a mere six months to complete under her keen eye for detail and flair. By installing playful wallpaper by Schumacher and Brunschwig & Fils that blended understated hues and traditional patterns, along with commissioning unique art pieces from Kristen Tirney Art for the homeowners, this typical coastal Hamptons dwelling came to life with exceptionality and ease.
Never shying away from prints, the living room is complete with nautical tones, art prints and greenery galore.
With this project, time truly was of the essence. A tight turnaround period coupled with the request for a family-friendly, stylish space proved to be no major obstacle for Hunter. “I had complete confidence in both my vision and Jennifer’s direction, and we ran with it,” shares Ali McDevitt. “That comfortability and trust in each other is what ultimately made the home come together in such a perfect way.”

In the words of Hunter herself, the “project ended up being both a design and logistical masterpiece.” A walk through the home feels like a walk through a wellness oasis, with the dark wood floors and classic nautical tones complementing each other harmoniously. While the details like the printed wallpaper and fresh coats of Benjamin Moore paint certainly do part of the talking, Hunter also carefully handpicked all the furniture inside the home for ultimate relaxation. Using natural-material furniture with accents of jute and rattan along with elegant white beds and large-scale lounge chairs from Serena and Lily, Hunter was able to craft a space that begs inhabitants to simply unwind. The balance of indoor and outdoor areas allows for personal refuge but is also the perfect destination to host extensive gatherings.

Attesting to the tranquil nature of the home, McDevitt further shares, “This home has become our sanctuary and a place we feel the most at peace as a family. We are beyond proud of the finished product and the way Jennifer was able to bring our vision to life. It is a happy home, and that feeling hits you from the second you walk in the door.”
