HAMPTON DESIGNER SHOWHOUSE DIARY


 photo by Eric Stiffler
I'm so excited to share with you all my room for this year's Hamptons Designer Showhouse sponsored by Traditional Home. It's such an honor to be chosen to participate and I was thrilled to be asked to design the dining room for the house.

Color inspiration for the room came from the Atlantic ocean and bucolic farmland that surrounds the Hamptons. I chose various shades of ocean blue punctuated by green as the color scheme for the room.  
When it comes to designing a room for a showhouse, it really does "take a village" and I was privileged to work with some fabulous partners. Beacon Hill provided me with fabric for the room and their glamorous Sakura stripe in Neptune was the starting point for my design. I love this print! The awning stripe, a summer classic, is elevated in glamorous silk with shades of ocean blues and white.  
I covered a lucite bench in Robert Allen's Perfect Wave in Calypso blue-- a whimsical print with the perfect beachy vibe.  
The room, shown below in a "before" photo has a large bay window and a pretty coffered ceiling but it needed some color!
Phillip Jeffries Juicy Jute in Tantalizing Teal had just the right pop of color for the walls. 
 The textured grasscloth has a beautiful sheen that reflects the rooms natural light and adds depth and texture.

 Pratt and Lambert's November, a subtle blue-gray paint color with a slight glaze added dimension to the coffered ceilings. 
There's so much more to go over! Next post will feature furnishings, lighting and art-

I love the teal colored fabrics and the coffee colored accents on the ceiling. Combined it came out to be a wonderfully cozy room. Thanks for sharing this post!

Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?

I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking
for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for
being off-topic but I had to ask!
