Tobi Fairley knocked the ball out of the park with her interpretation of a guest bedroom! Her use of color, her attention to detail, her fearlessness to push boundaries yet still create a classic, timeless, beautiful and functional space drew the attention of everyone who entered her room. I was impressed and captivated by Tobi's space.
If you follow my blog you know I'm a stickler for details, one of which is paying attention to ceilings. I love how Tobi drew the eye up the walls with her painted stripes.
Tobi looked stunning in her gorgeous yellow dress!
The dresser was another example of Tobi's attention to detail. Look at the Kelly green trim complimenting the Schumacher textile used on the headboard, the window treatments and the bergere.
Love the chic color of the dress and isn't the bow just fabulous?
The details on the dresser...don't you just love the mineral element infused into this space.
I spent a significant amount of time haning out with Tobi in her room. Every single person who walked into her room went absolutely ape over Swank Lighting's recycled glass lamps, including Tobi's friend Jamie Drake.
Since I mentioned Jamie Drake let me just say that he has a personality larger than life and is such a nice, likeable man! He is also funny and why you see me laughing in this photo.
I'm a huge fan of using desks as bedside tables. In my daughter's room you'll eventually see where I paired a custom desk with a lucite bamboo chair. However, Tobi did something with this desk that I loved. She wallpapered the top of the desk and then had a custom piece of thick lucite made to go over the wallcovering...genuis! Such a striking element that fetched many compliments too!
To really appreciate Marjorie Skouras Design's chandelier you need to see it in person. Absolutely gorgeous! The jade stones with the gold was magical!
Tobi, congratulations on all of the local press and rave reviews you are getting in the Hamptons! You deserve it all! You are an asset to our industry and I'm proud to call you a friend.
I highly recommend this year's Hampton Designer Showhouse located at 1224 Scuttle Hole Road. You can visit Monday through Sunday from 11am to 5pm July 24th through September 4th. Do you love going to showhouses? Will you be making a visit to see this one?
