Jane Siskin wearing Cinq à Sept at her Westhampton home
Following a multiyear rebuild in 2019, Cinq à Sept co-founder and CEO Jane Siskin’s Westhampton home brings to life the inimitably eclectic yet livable style her brand is coveted for.
When Jane Siskin began planning the rebuild of her Westhampton family home, she turned to Laura Maresca-Sanatore of LMS Design to bring alive the vibrant vision she had for the space. Those familiar with Siskin’s work as co-founder of the clothing line Cinq à Sept (cinqasept.nyc) will notice the strong comparisons between the brand’s colorful, feminine and contemporary pieces and Siskin’s highly personalized beach abode. “Inside, the home is Jane’s style through and through,” says Maresca-Sanatore.
“She has a style that is eclectic, organic and never boring. Working with her was so amazing because she really has a strong sense of color, texture and, most importantly, what she wants!” The two created a space that showcases the natural beauty of its Dune Road location and the well-curated chaos of Siskin’s personal style down to the last detail. Look closely and you’ll see nods to Cinq à Sept in unexpected places such as the bathroom wallpaper, which shares its pattern with an early dress design by the brand.
Dotted with cheerful umbrellas, the clean lines of the home’s exterior designed by Rocco Lettieri give its residents a clear view straight to the water.
After a burst pipe caused extensive damage and flooding to the home, Siskin turned lemons into lemonade by kicking off the complete revitalization she had dreamed of since buying the home in 2006. The rebuild, which took 2.5 years to complete, was already underway when COVID-19 hit in 2020 causing further complications to the design and building process. Not one to shy away from a challenge, she enlisted architect Rocco Lettieri along with Maresca-Sanatore to ensure her beach sanctuary was completed without a hitch. The result? A complete metamorphosis creating a space wholly inspired by the surrounding, sun, sea and of course Siskin’s unique style. “The process has been really transformative,” says Siskin. “I’m so thrilled with the new oasis that we have created.”

Maresca-Sanatore hunted down pieces that would reflect Siskin’s eccentric taste and immaculate design sensibilities from a variety of vendors, as well as some pieces from Siskin’s personal collection like the custom metal kidney tables that perfectly accentuate the living room. Other playful pieces include the dining room light from Lindsey Adelman, a jumble of sea glass and ropes that looks like it was plucked straight from the beach to seamlessly complement the rest of the space’s furnishings. The Arhaus hanging chair, an “absolute must-have” for Maresca-Sanatore, overlooks the beaches below the house—the perfect spot for a tranquil morning coffee or a chat with a friend over aperitivos.
Functionality meets form in the chef’s kitchen, with top-of-the-line appliances joined by tasteful touches like the Ann Sacks mirrored backsplash tile.
At the end of the extensive redesign process, the final result is a testament to the collaboration between the creative forces behind this home. Lettieri’s exterior design is fresh and modern, allowing light to pour into the fresh interiors and providing priceless views for the home’s residents. Maresca-Sanatore’s interior work left every space ready to be lived in and loved, like the exquisite primary bath with ocean views from the green-and-teal-tiled shower and luxurious free-standing bath. Not just for show, this home is a true reflection of its owner’s refined yet free-spirited and functional tastes. “This beach house is an escape for me and my family, a reprieve from the craziness of the city,” shares Siskin. “It was important for me to stay the course of creating a space that is peaceful while still feeling authentic to my personal style.”
