Hamptons Designer Showhouse

Last week, I made one final trip to the Hampton Designer Showhouse.  The Traditional Home sponsored showhouse runs through September 4, 2011. Do you love visiting showhouses?

Lillian August created this living room using a very soothing and calming color palette.
Eileen Kathryn Boyd Interiors designed the lower level of the two story pool house interior with such style and finesse! Quite frankly, the pool house is worth moving into...it's fabulous!    
Brady Design designed the upstairs level of the pool house with this eye catching artwork and comfortable seating area. I have a love of using orange accents in the home, so the popsicle artwork caught my attention as being whimsical and fun for this pool house.
Bakes and Company creates superb kitchens with their quality workmanship. What a brilliant design to stow the huge trays into the side of the island. It is this kind of detail to function and practicality that I appreciate. I find many times large trays are on the bottom of a cabinet or pantry with stuff piled on top.
It is known that I'm a lover of wallcoverings, especially in small spaces. It seems Meg Braff Interiors LLC echos the same sentiment. The square footage of this butler's pantry is not grand, yet the space is due to her wallpaper and fabulous lighting. Did you know Meg Braff has her own amazing line of wallcoverings? 
I love this lighting fixture in the guest living room created by Eddie Lee, Inc.
When it comes to painting walls black or brown, many homeowners steer clear. I love seeing dark colors used in design! Here's Joy Tribout proving that black on the walls is chic in this guest bedroom. I also love her nod to the equestrian lifestyle in the Hamptons.
Have you been? Are you local? Will you be attending? There's nothing like seeing the spaces in person!

Wow, I just adore the bedroom and have never seen equestrian style in such a modern context. This is awesome inspiration.
I have not ever been to the Hamptons. I am a Southern girl and there is currently no showhouse in Fredericksburg, Virginia. DC is a traffic nightmare but Charlottesville is nearby. I do not know if Richmond has one.

We did not have time to go when we were out there but did go to another "show place!" I love that bubble light and the use of fresh white in all the rooms.
Thanks for such a wonderful tour!

I won a ticket to see the showhome from Tobi Fairley Interior Design, but I don't think I'll be able to make the trip! I'm glad you've posted more photos from it here. Looks like it's amazing!

Love the colors in these rooms! The popsicle art is really fun too! Just discovered your blog, am really enjoying it!

I love the Popsicle art in the pool house. The idea and the colors are perfect for the setting. Also adore the huge built in trays...brilliant. Not only does it look great but what a perfect place to store such a large item.

Andrika King said...

Great photos and look into the house! Anyone know who makes the lighting fixtures in the butler's pantry? I NEED them!
