2011 Hampton Decorator Show House

So excited to be part of this year's 2011 Hampton Designer Show House.  It seems like yesterday that I walked through the space, creating visions of what I thought it should look like.  As soon as I entered into the Pool House, I knew this was the room for me to do. 

Let's begin the tour with the exterior. I selected outdoor pieces from Scarsella's Flowers, Greenhouses & Home, simple clean lines with extrordinary
stone texture.  To soften the seating area I used Duralee outdoor fabrics, finishing the look with lanterns from Arteriors Home.

Walking through the french doors the room is unveiled. Wanting to feature my line of Eileen Kathryn Boyd Fabrics for Duralee I dressed the windows in Giverny Buttercup, the Novi Slipper chairs in Pulse Hyacinth, and the daybed in Lucchese Dove

The Nautilus print by Robert LeBeau lends it self to the calmness of the room.

The Driftwood floor lamp by Arteriors Home gives off perfect lighting over Theo Chair from Duralee.

In the alcove you'll find Kerry Irvine's Tree of Life subtly lit by Mottega's Sophia lamp in Crackle.

Every pool house should have a fun little dressing room! I used Benjamin Moore's Yellow Brick Road to pop a splash of color on the ceiling.  As a huge fan of fashion handbags, I thought I would play around with my fabric line to create my own for the occasion. 

High End Interiors Plastering and Painting did a phenemonal job throughout the entire space. In the kitchen I had them add another pop of color to the ceiling and horizontal stripes to the walls for added depth. 

I want to thank everyone who made my vision a reality!

I hope you and your family have the opportunity to come out to the Hamptons and enjoy the 2011 Hampton Designer Show House.  The show runs from July 24 through Sept 4th from 11am to 5pm.
