Taking over her father’s design firm and creating a name for herself... This time of year I find myself thinking of cedar-shingle Hamptons beach houses. This is one of the cottages that come to mind when I think of a serene home by the shore. Alexa Hampton has created this amazing look. Architectural Digest – Alexa Hampton Alexa Hampton – President of Mark Hampton, LLC “Her work is classic, traditional and eclectic. Under her direction, the firm has completed a wide range of designs for domestic and international projects, including apartments and larger residences, private airplanes and yachts.” There is a great interview by Raina Cox of If the Lampshade Fits for curbed.com. In the meantime, enjoy the interior of this beautiful house photographed for Architectural Digest by Scott Frances. All photos from Architectural Digest – Alexa Hampton
Where to start with your outdoor design? As in many past exterior design posts, the answer remains, look up at your home. The clues are there, in it's architectural style, colors, and the existing construction elements you can repeat on the ground. To emphasize this point I searched all over the internet seeking particular home styles and then on to finding outdoor spaces that could be a match. Let's explore; French What we can repeat; a stone floor that matches it's color ways furniture that is french styled with colors that mirror the homes colors Prairie What we can repeat; flooring that blends red accents the verticality and simple lines of the fireplace casual styled furniture and layout Southern Colonial What we can repeat; the color ways on the fencing with neutrals on the garden floor symmetry which is a hallmark of this architecture Shingle style a la the Hamptons What we can repeat; Garden floor that matches the sun bleached singles Boxwoods in controlled patterns and some cottage elements, reminiscent of the east coast Victorian What we can repeat; opposites attract......a fussy exterior can balance a minimalist aesthetic repeat the drama of the black with fencing and furniture Provincial French What we can repeat; color ways of neutrality provincial urns pea gravel is indigenous to this region as are the plantings Contemporary American farmhouse What we can repeat; the garden floor repeats the colors of the roof furniture matches the clean simplicity of the siding contemporary design Rectilinear contemporary What we can repeat contemporary style a square space which repeats lines of the house I would stain this deck the dark colors reflected in the window sashes Colonial What we can repeat; the casual nature of the home with the addition of some structure in the plants. a la the boxwoods repetition of color ways in the obelisks casual stacking of the flagstone, all in a composition of country/city Did this provide a starting point for you? Whether designing from scratch or tweaking your personal space, we will approach this project as one would build from the ground up and referring repeatedly to the architecture for a cohesive union. The next post will address the garden floor; the foundation and the beginning stages of design Here is the front profile of Keri Doolittle's home, whose patio we will re-design. What is the architectural style? I am going to categorize it as a contemporary country french. The strong/steep lines of the roof and the authentic shutters would lean us in that direction. Keri how do you feel about that? See you next week, happy April! Debra
