One of my absolute favorite rooms at the Traditional Home Hampton Designer Showhouse last summer was the masculine bedroom suite designed by Bradley Thiergartner Interiors that I never actually posted! Sometimes as a blogger you get sidetracked or another event happens soon after one you are covering or you have paying clients that require your […]

One of the rooms I was most excited to see at The Hampton Designer Showhouse this year was the den by Carrier and Company. I had seen a few photos online at Vogue.com and of course the burnt orange walls were right up my alley! The room with sitting area and pool table is in […]

Instead of continuing on to the second floor of the Hampton Designer Showhouse presented by Traditional Home, I’ve decided to take you down to the basement. Usually, basements are an after thought or never decorated at all but in a showhouse every available space is an opportunity for greatness. Such is the case with the […]

A friend just told me yesterday that he heard the home used for the Traditional Home Hampton Designer Showhouse sold for the full asking price. I think it’s a great house and I hope the owners look into buying some of the furnishings used for the showhouse since the designers did a great job decorating […]

According to his description of the room, his firm decided to take the architectural details of the room down a notch by adding “rustic textures and […]

The Hamptons aren’t like any other place in the country. The houses are not only bigger and more expensive but even the ones not actually on the beach are expensive! I thought before I moved onto to any other rooms, you might want to see the actual house and it’s plans. For those who aren’t […]

This year’s Hampton Designer Showhouse was very impressive and inspiring! We kept declaring each room we visited our favorite and the screened porch designed by my friend and fellow blogger and designer Brad Ford was declared a favorite by everyone who has seen it according to the ladies in charge. I spoke to Brad and […]
