“Languishing in a hammock in the late afternoon and reading for hours. I fill a basket with the week’s accumulation of magazines, articles and my latest book.”
—Charlotte Moss, decorator

“Cocktails at sunset with a few close friends, ice cubes tinkling and laughter swelling. The smell of green grass and flowers along with flickering candles as night descends is my idea of Hamptons heaven.”
—Jamie Drake, decorator

“I love going to the East Hampton and Sag Harbor farmers' markets with my daughters, who established their own little business serving fresh pastas and lemonade.”
—Colin Ambrose, restaurateur

“A true Southampton summer is the chopping of hedges by hand, the drowsy sound of noble groundskeepers sculpting the perfect barricades. I do it with shears, and get a sunburned back in return!”
—William Sofield, designer

“I love playing doubles with the tennis girls every weekend at Perri Peltz-Ruttenberg's court in Southampton. Our pro is Marco, the Croatian sensation. This chic group consists of Sara Ayres, Tory Burch, Ariadne Calvo-Platero, Jenny Conant-Kroft, Perri Peltz-Ruttenberg, Jeanne Greenberg-Rohatyn, Jill Fairchild, Gigi Mortimer, Renee Rockefeller and me, the organizer.”
—Peggy Siegal, publicist
