My favorite of his designs is a 9000 square foot home in Southampton, New York. The three-story home is built into a hillside and has ocean and bay views. Merrill gutted the house for renovation. He chose a gray-on-gray paint scheme and floors of matte washed gray reclaimed oak, gray French limestone and slate.
