Pre-gaming for Holiday House Hamptons yesterday, a group of design aficionados and I got together in the charming, old whaling town of Sag Harbor to feed our common interests of all things beautiful and delicious. We later visited the first ever Holiday House Hamptons and finished the day with cocktails at the lovely Hampton home ofLibby Langdon.
