Hampton Designer Showhouse 2015

Need a little dose of sophisticated, yet relaxed Hampton style? Take a peek into the Hampton Designer Showhouse 2015 featuring 25 top tier interior designers. Located at 233 Old Sage Harbor Road in Bridgehampton, New York the designers transformed the barn style house into a decorating masterpiece. One notable trend throughout the home was the use of the color blue. I’ve pulled a few images of the showhouse featuring the the hue that typifies coastal living.

Holiday House Hamptons 2014 :: My Faves

Earlier this summer, Holiday House Hamptons at Watchcase in Sag Harbor opened its doors to the public. Showcasing eighteen talented interior designers, the prestigious design showhouse combines two of founder, Iris Dankner’s passions: interior design and fundraising for breast cancer research. This year Holiday House partnered with Hamptons Cottages and Gardens (HC&G) to deliver an inspiring design house which is actually a 19th century brick factory that’s now being converted into luxury condos. The grand industrial space set the stage for each designer to create a space themed around a holiday or special moment in their life. Here’s a look at some of my favorite spaces.

Peninsula Volunteers Decorator Show House :: Chinoiserie Foyer

Interior Designer, Mary Linn Coldiron of Coldiron Interiors creates a stunning entry for the Peninsula Volunteers Decorator Show House in Woodside, California. The two-story foyer features beautiful quarter-saw wood paneling, a wall of French doors and a grand staircase. Under layers of paint and paper the original French wallpaper with Chinoiserie bamboo motif was discovered and restored. The wallpaper’s blue hue was repeated in the rug, accessories and wall leading to the second floor. Bamboo furnishings and blue and white Chinese pottery add to the room’s chic Chinoiserie style. In the room’s center, an elegant settee in tangerine velvet is paired with a resting dog statue and charming hoofed side tables.

Hopefully you get the opportunity (if in the San Francisco Bay Area) to tour this gorgeous Woodside estate. It’s only open one more week until May 24th, so don’t delay!

And in case you missed it, here’s a tour of the Show House’s Guest Bedroom , Mother-in-Law Suite and Card Room.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Peninsula Volunteers Decorator Show House :: Mother-in-Law Suite

Interior Designer, Christine Sheldon was inspired by the beautiful views of the estate when designing the Mother-in-Law Suite for the Peninsula Volunteers Decorator Show House. For the room which receives wonderful natural light from windows positioned on the north, south and east walls, Sheldon selects a restful color palette in shades of gray and adds an energetic coral for accents. The vibrant accent is most evident in the velvet upholstered headboard, but is also repeated in the embroidered drapery and artwork throughout the space.
