Inspirations on the Horizon: Southampton Showhouse

What fun! While staying in the town of Remsenburg, my childhood home in the Hamptons, I was lucky enough to have the time to visit the Hampton Designer Showhouse in Bridgehampton. It's always a welcome trip to travel out east and see the sites. Especially when you know the back roads to beat the traffic. Miles of beautiful scenery, farm stands, vineyards and antique shops, lead us to our destination The Hampton Designer ShowHouse. I always temper my expectations with the understanding that each designer must do their best to stand out, take some risks and at the same time make the room functional, inviting and memorable. Some of the rooms did just that and some did not.. I have to say overall, it was worth the visit. I look for innovative ideas, high impact and a touch of practicality.
