Home tour- A landscape designer's stylish escape!

Homeowner and landscape designer, Joseph Cornetta turns a humble Sag Harbor bungalow and yard into a stylish escape. Check out his gorgeous home and his amazingly manicured backyard landscape!

The hedge was cut into a half moon shape to provide a vista of the garden from the inside of the house.

The living room was designed around the artwork around the sofa.

The paneled Japanese screen acts as a backdrop to a pair of leather and chrome Mies van der Rohe chairs.

Four more Mies van der Rohe chairs sit around a 1960s Warren Platner table from Knoll.

The original kitchen was gutted and replaced by cabinetry he designed himself. The pantry door is from a hotel in London.

The garden's patio furniture was tucked behind an inviting plunge pool and fountain.

A lava stone Buddha head from Bali is surrounded by topiaried boxwood.

A French fountain greets visitors in the courtyard.

A stylish and serene guest bedroom.

A casual and relaxed masculine master bedroom.

I have always had an admiration for perfectly manicured gardens because they look like a work of art to me. Gorgeous landscapes like these are often the work of someone with an artistic eye with a considerable amount of knowledge about plants. Do you love manicured gardens too?

  6. Jessie, I also love this garden. Its charming how the house opens up to it. Great bedrooms!

  7. You know I'm not huge on the manicured gardens...I'm much more of a country garden person I think...but i'll take that kitchen for sure! :)

  8. I truly love the inside of the home, but the garden truly wowed me! I bookmarked it for landscaping inspiration to aspire to!

  9. That hedge is just brilliant! And there are two pics of my favourite chairs, the Mies Brno flat bars. I am presently waiting for eight of them to be delivered for my dining room (upholstered in black leather though). You are officially the first to know, I was keeping it a secret. But I'm too excited!
