"I've always been inspired by the casual glamour of old Southampton," says Langham. "My fantasy for this dining room was a client who had grown up in one of the grand 'cottages' of the estate section, but has scaled down with just a few good pieces."
While rooted in the past, the room is anything but dated. Modern elements punctuate the space--lacquered console tables designed by Langham flank the door and shots of hot pink update the painted Georgian-style chairs. "A room can be traditional, yet modern," notes Langham. "I like to create rooms that are rooted in the past--classic, timeless, familiar--just reinterpreted to make them suit today."
