The couple opened the doors of their minimalist East Hampton abode to Architectural Digest, revealing they took inspiration from designer Calvin Klein. "He is the master of minimalism.

The home features an abundance of space and looks even bigger since most of the walls are painted white and reflect the natural sunlight through plenty of floor-to-ceiling windows. "The house is very monochromatic. I do not do primary colors. I can’t do primary colors," Deborra explained.

The couple opted to make their kitchen a focus of the downstairs space and it features prominently in the open plan living room with Caesarstone surfaces and Muuto counter stools. The living room also has white furniture and huge glass doors that look out into the garden.

The home also includes a gym, an artist’s studio, a screening room, and a pristine garden with an infinity swimming pool and breathtaking views of the ocean.

"I know it’s an extravagance, but the house has got just what we need," Hugh said. "I love that we use every room, every day. Because of Deb’s design, it brings us all together. When you have time off, you want to be a unit."

Hugh and Deborra added the holiday home to their portfolio several years ago, and the renovations have certainly been worth it.
