Rooms that make you go…swoon!

Sunday, July 17, 2011 | Category: Bed and Bath, Designers, Magazines

Have you ever accumulated a stack of about six magazines that you are just dying to read, but know you need to save them for a time when you can really sit down and concentrate on them? ย Well that has been me for the past few months…saving my favorite magazines for the appropriate time and place..finally, that time was this weekend.

Out of all the articles I read and all the photos I perused, I must say that the 2010 Hampton Designer Showhouse that was featured in Traditional Home this month was completely and utterly stunning! I definitely ended up having some favorite rooms that I haven’t been able to get out of my head since my eyes first met the page.

Here are my top rooms- which ones are yours?

Room- Master bedroom sitting area

Designer- Skye Kirby and Diane Karmen for Lillian August

What’s so swoon-worthy?

The glam silver-leaf ceiling, elegant tufted slipcovered settees, and the soothing lilac palette.

**Now I don’t like picking favorites, but if I had to, this room would definitely be it!!**

Room- Master bedroom

Designer- Skye Kirby and Diane Karmen for Lilliam August

What’s so swoon-worthy?

The va va voom mirrored furniture, the sophisticated art series and the lucite bench legs.

What’s so swoon-worthy?

The gorgeous glass floor tile, the luxurious silk roman shade, and the freestanding furniture that creates a cozy atmosphere.

Room- Entry and Living Room

The textured grasscloth wallcovering and sisal rug, the mix of natural and glam pieces (i.e.: lucite and stone), and the deep navy accents.

What’s so swoon-worthy?

The Phillip Jeffries wallcovering on the walls and ceiling, the antique French crystal chandelier, and the dramatic/moody monochromatic color scheme.

The bright happy color palette (including the lacquered yellow walls), the layering of pattern, and the quirky artichoke lamps.

The abundance of Quadrille pillow fabrics, the organic looking teak coffee table, and the classic Suzanne Kasler Visual Comfort lanterns.

This is an impossible task, choosing a favorite – torturous! I do LOVE the kitchen porch, though. I am a big fan of turning outdoor space into an extension of the home. That porch looks cozy AND functional.
Serious envy going on here!
