2011 Hampton Designer Showhouse: First Floor
Luxury prevails on the first floor of this showhouse
The warm summer months beckon with beach trips and much-needed relaxation. For a perfect weekend getaway packed full of stylish stops, look no further than the Hamptons. In the 2011 Hampton Designer Showhouse luxury prevailed, from casual spaces like Aurélien Gallet’s game room to Robert Stilin’s lavish dining room. Let’s meet the designers and take a tour of last year’s showhouse.

Skye Kirby Westcott, Living Room
The living room Skye Kirby Westcott designed for Lillian August had its share of challenges. The stone fireplace surround and lofty ceilings meant Westcott needed to capture guests’ attention at eye level. She balanced contemporary and classic styles to create a comfortable environment. A quiet palette compliments the space’s organic theme.
An antique dentist’s chair rests in front of the filled secretary cupboard. A pewter wingchair provides additional seating.
The console area is filled with antique accessories and reproductions—like the saint figure—giving the space a layered feel.
“Four different patterns, all within the same palette, provide depth and dimension without introducing more colors,” says Skye Kirby Westcott who designed the living room with the help of Angela Camarda.

Nina Freudenberger, Foyer
Designer Nina Freudenberger of Haus Interior doesn’t shy away from bold color and bright patterns. She incorporates both into her foyer space—offering a memorable welcome to guests. The double-height walls are drenched in a deep navy and serve as a soothing counterpoint to Freudenberger’s use of pattern—specifically, the yellow-and-gray “peacock print” Trina Turk fabric on the banquette and console.
Atop the vintage, wooden commode sits an antique fish sculpture and a table lamp by Haus Interior. The sea-inspired scene adds a bit of whimsy to the entryway.
The playful patterns and use of color continues with the custom benches and yellow-and-gray console, again covered in Trina Turk’s “peacock print.” A wide variety of artwork serves as eye candy, as does the “Japanese Banana Weave” wallpaper by Phillip Jefferies.
“I think we accomplished what we set out to achieve,” says Nina Freudenberger, who collaborated with Bryn Schuyler to design the foyer. “We worked with the architectural elements given to us, making sure it did not limit our creativity in the space.”

Donald Schermerhorn, Family Room
This family room by Donald Schermerhorn is a collaboration of contrasts. Softened sweeps of color are scattered throughout the space in an effortless, yet purposeful manner. Antique and contemporary rugs are layered on top of one another. Overhead, a large-scale fan tops off the space.
Brown square tiles are hung on the wall behind the sofa covered in “Sandpiper” fabric by Kravet. Yellow, red, and purple pillows stick to the family room’s colorful theme.
The blue wall paint by Benjamin Moore is “softened by the artists’ hand,” notes Schermerhorn. The sections of color seem to designate different areas of the room.
“The mix allowed me to add color that moved around the room,” says designer Donald Schermerhorn of his use of layering colors and fabrics. “The varying sizes, textures, and patterns held the room together. One rug would have been too easy!”

Robert Stilin, Dining Room
Modern traditionalist Robert Stilin embraces the beauty that is comfort. This is obvious when touring his dining room space. The dining chairs are covered with plush, toffee leather. And walls upholstered in fabric soften the room’s sculptural furnishings and paneling.
Sterling flatware and a glass water carafe by Georg Jensen accent Swedish white-veined green Kolmarden marble plates. A straw-and-raffia African Kuba cloth acts as a tablecloth and contrasts nicely with the dishware.
A pine armchair from Brazil offers simple seating for guests. Artwork by Douglas Gordon and Piotr Uklanski decorates the surrounding walls.
A French glass desk facing the window plays host to vintage pottery and an antique spotlight.
“The room has so much architecture in it that using strong forms was important,” says designer Robert Stilin of the dining room. “But they were forms with strong patina and character to give that organic edge.”

Jennifer McGee, Breakfast Room
Shots of verdant green and cool blues play off the nearby pool and forest and amplify the otherwise neutral palette of this breakfast room designed by Jennifer McGee. Her favorite accessory in the space is the twig chandelier in the center of the room. Both organic and elegant, the lighting serves as a focal point.
Beautiful bird plates by Edwin Collins for ABC Carpet & Home are accessorized with custom placemats and tortoise shell napkin rings.
McGee custom designed the daybed in front of the bookcase. A wide assortment of accessories—from photographs to small statues—fills the solid wood shelves.
“When designing a space, there is an emotional connection that usually dictates the color and design,” says Jennifer McGee. Her breakfast room was wholeheartedly inspired by the Hampton’s natural beauty.

Bob Bakes, Kitchen
Walnut serving trays tucked into the vertical niches of the center island add dark contrast to the otherwise all-white kitchen. Other noteworthy accents incorporated by designer Bob Bakes include: sleek hardware, functional cabinetry, and simple lighting.
Wicker baskets tucked under the stark white counters bring texture to the cooking space.
Designer Bob Bakes’ advice for putting together a winning room is to keep it simple. “There is nothing worse than an overdone space, or one that’s too contrived,” he says.

Katie Ridder, Rear Hall
Designer Katie Ridder selected a sea-inspired teal-and-white wallpaper from her collection for Holland & Sherry to coat the walls of the rear hallway. An ivory-framed mirror hangs on the wall above the commode, accessorized by red jars, a wire leaf sculpture, and beautiful travel books.
Inspired by the seaweed and crabs that occupy Long Island’s beach, designer Katie Ridder picked the bright wallpaper to liven up the hallway off the kitchen and pool entry.

Eddie Lee, Guest Living Room
Designer Eddie Lee’s living room is tucked away in the guest wing. A blue L-shaped sofa runs nearly the entire width of the space. Offering total tranquility, the room enjoys poolside views and boasts a bright pastel palette.
A vintage, floor-length mirror gives the illusion of a larger space. The lounge chair covered in sky blue fabric by Jane Churchill for Cowtan & Tout elaborates on the color scheme.
The large painting resting above the white commode titled Dark Skate/Pasadena Hill 2011 by Lia Halloran is a great conversation piece. The dark colors add drama to the subtle living room.
Lee dropped jaws with this 1960s Venini glass chandelier. The lighting draws eyes upward, calling attention to the sweeping ceilings.
“We envisioned the living room as a retreat for guests to have their own personal space,” says designer Eddie Lee.

Keith Carroll, Guest Bedroom
Scalamandre wallpaper inspired Keith Carroll’s guest bedroom design. The traditional, yet out-there pattern called for fabrics, furnishings, and art that could hold their own against its bold pattern.
Shots of purple and a wide range of textures—cut velvets and silks, to name a couple—inject a dash of luxury and sophistication.
Wall artwork and a white parchment table accessorize a welcoming sofa decorated with pillows.
“It’s a bedroom of world travelers with great taste,” says designer Keith Carroll. “Their refuge at home.”

Meg Braff, Butler’s Pantry
Designer Meg Braff made the most of this pantry’s small space by wrapping the room’s walls in a robin’s egg blue patterned wallpaper. White cabinets with chrome hardware compliment the marble countertops, as well as the ceiling’s silver wallpaper.
“I liked the idea something nautical and summery, yet sophisticated,” says designer Meg Braff of picking the palette and patterns featured in showhouse’s pantry.
