Christie Brinkleys Home in the Hamptons & Shell Art and Crafts Studio

A tour of Christie Brinkley's home in a Hamptons and a peek into her shell art & crafts studio!

Christie Brinkley's Home in the Hampton's (NY) is surrounded by piles of snow as so many homes are at the moment, mine included.

Christie Brinkley and other top models appeared on the Oprah show last Friday, discussing aging. Her secret to looking so good (and young) at 57, vegetarian food and a good dermatologist -and a good plastic surgeon perhaps? Well, who wants to ponder on that when we can tour her century-old home that sports nautical touches throughout, a shell craft studio and her shell art.

Christie shares her sprawling 21-acre estate with her daughter and son. To hang the life preserver ring in front of the window is a cool idea.

The sitting area is complete with a fireplace that is adorned with Christie's shell art. I'd love to see the two seahorses facing each other.

This picture of the fireplace as well as the kitchen below are via Newsweek from a couple of years ago when the home was on the market. Christie still lives here, so she must have changed her mind, or it just didn't work out.

Christie Brinkley's art studio. Here she draws, creates shell Crafts & Art, and works on other projects too.

The girl is creative for sure. Christie does her own interior decorating and incorporates her shell art work into the design.

And here is one of Christie's shell art pieces. Living only steps away from the beach, she's probably collected many of the shells herself.

WOW WEE!!!! Thank you so much for sharing as I missed that part of the show when I received a long distance phone call.
Her place is amazing and one I am drooling over.
Have a super Monday, Amy (Mom to the Four Sisters)

OMG, what I'd give to have a seashell studio like that to work in! I had no idea that she's another sheller, yep, it's an addiction for sure.

Gorgeous pieces of shell art, thanks for sharing.

Her home looks so warm and welcoming even with all that snow outside. I could get lost for hours in her craft/art room - how awesome

Great Post Maya! I didn't see that Oprah show but I know Christie also eats organic. I'm coveting her art room.

Simone @ Doberman's by the Sea said...

Awesome! Totally my style. Thanks Maya.

Christies's home is beautiful - sort of casually elegant. Love the starfish hanging from the mantel.

All the shell art pieces you posted are beautiful. I'd love to see the votive in real life - I'm sure the shell colours look beautiful lit up by the candle flame.

Her place is so lovely and inviting. I love the couches!

Christie Brinkley sure has some house! The shell art pieces you posted were beautiful!

Thanks for doing a post on this! I actually watched that episode yesterday afternoon and kept pausing and rewinding my dvr to see the shells again!

Gorgeous home. Love the bead board ceiling. I agree about the sea horses. They seem odd like that.

The last photo, the jingle shell votive, is my fave. It's the simple things :-)

Lili said...

How beautiful her home is and of course she is too. I am drooling over the work from Ocean Offerings and Seashell Finery though! ~Lili

Beautiful Details said...

I had no idea and I've always been a big Christie Brinkley fan! So beautiful and so talented! I'm with you on the seahorses Maya. They must be flat on the back side. Great post!

Low Tide High Style said...

I loved getting a glimpse at her beautiful home! And I love it even more that she has created the space herself and filled it with the things she has created and loves! I wish the seahorses were facing one another too! And the other seashell art you have featured is wonderful too!

Gorgeous home. Love the blue kitchen and the white slipcovers. My favorite is the fireplace. Just gorgeous. I am surprised it didn't sell!!

SeaShellsbySeaShore said...

LOVE her home, but especially her studio! Thanks for sharing this- I don't watch TV very often, so I'm glad I didn't miss out thanks to you.

Linda said...

Wow! All the beautiful shell art! I am starting to combine shells with my creations, too--tatting and shells.
