The 2018 Hampton Designer Showhouse: Part I

Last weekend I headed to my parent’s house on Long Island for my sister’s birthday and along the way, visited the 2018 Traditional Home Hampton Designer Showhouse. I absolutely love seeing this showhouse every summer! This year, funds raised are benefiting Stony Brook Hospital (my alma mater), and I definitely recommend you go see it before it closes Labor Day Weekend! There are so many gorgeous designs this year. Above, the spacious and airy entryway was beautifully decorated by Sea Green Designs LLC.

I love the blue ombre wall covering – so fun and still sophisticated. The graphic peach wallcovering in the vestibule was also a favorite detail for me!

Here’s a view of the Great Room from above, decorated by Lisa Mende for Wesley Hall. She designed it to “restorative like a day on the beach.” A mix of serene colors like seashell pink and watery blue mingled with fantastic textures to create a space that feels perfect for lounging and relaxing.

The art by Paige Kalena Follman really caught my eye, partly due to the eye-catching and unique way that Lisa chose to display it. What a great way to fill an empty corner.

Barclay Butera designed this Family Room with Lexington Home Brands. It felt wonderfully layered and I loved the abundance of blue – it’s just what you’re in the mood for when you’re at a beachy Hamptons home!

Clearly blue is a big theme at the Hampton Designer Showhouse – no surprise there! Who wouldn’t want to spend the night in this bedroom by IBB Design for CR Laine? It’s the Junior Master Suite but I prefer to think of it as the guest room where I’d like to stay!

Oh yeah, this suite also has its own private terrace (no big deal) designed by The Rinfret Group for Lloyd Flanders:

Les Touches and Cowtan and Tout pillows on Serena and Lily rattan daybed

I loved the pillow pattern mixing – both the fact of it but also each pattern on its own (Les Touches is one of my all-time favorites). I also liked the little blue side table and the abstract art on either side of the rattan Serena and Lily daybed.

The kitchen is by Designs by Fernando, and the breakfast room was designed by Barbara Page Home.

Here’s the exterior of the house – which, surprising as it may sound, at 8,000 square feet, actually felt pleasantly petite for a Hamptons Showhouse! A lot of the time the houses are just massive and it can be a bit overwhelming, but I didn’t feel that way with this one. The house was constructed by Barsalin Building and Design, and as always an interesting aspect was getting to see the high-end finishes used in a shiny new Hamptons home such as this one.

Be back soon with the rest of my favorites from the showhouse!

      I don’t, I’m sorry! Maybe if you email the designer they can let you know – I think that area was also designed by Sea Green Designs LLC. xoxo
