This is one of those homes some people will love and many will hate. It’s crazy bright, bold, full of contrast, and not without more than its fair share of nuttiness. The Hamptons beach house of fashion designer Lisa Perry is filled with more art than the Guggenheim, and all those towering white walls have the bombastic feel of a major American museum.

Perhaps they hold Michael Jackson style dinner parties? What gives, people???
Insert your thoughts here. I probably share them.
That’s it — what did you think? Are you ready to move in, running the other way, or just planning a big heist?Continue Reading
