2012 Hampton Designer Showhouse - PART 2

Equestrian chic is certainly a popular in decor right now and this living room designed by Patrik Lönn is so luxurious.  Incorporating timeless pieces gives an authentic feel to the space and the classic colour scheme of white, taupe, brown and black creates a very handsome look.

I think that the brown used in the club chairs is the perfect colour for  suede/leather.  I love the the layering of fabrics and textures.  Even the saddle stitching on the chair adds to the equestrian style of the room.

In addition to the dramtic artwork used throughout the space, the ceiling displays custom wallpaper inspired by a Hermès scarf.  Gorgeous!!!

I always look for ways to incorporate fashion into interior design and these riding boots look so stylishly cool in the room. 

Favourite details: The stunning wallpaper on the ceiling, bronze wall sconces, subtle patterns used and lots of throws and pillows.

This open, bright and airy den, designed by Kate Singer is the perfect place to relax, read or have a cup of tea.  This blue and tan room is a perfect example of how to mix fabrics and patterns.  As dramatic as the drapes are, balance on the opposite side of the room is absolutely required. 

And it does not disappoint, with this beautiful gallery wall.  This is a mix of mostly original pieces of land and seascapes.  The vignette created below with the table and chairs is casually comfortable.  Even the Tiffany saphire blue suede tote is effortlessly incorporated into the room. 

The guest suite designed by Jennifer McConnell is a mix of blue watery tones with pops of bright coral and fuscia.  This room has a real nautical theme with the blue stripe carpet, tie-dye inspired print on the curtains and side chairs.

Favourite details: Tufted daybed, four small tables used as one large coffee table, tie-dye printed fabric used on the curtains and side chairs.  Tip:  When you introduce an accent colour into a space use it at least three times (as done here with the cushions and the ottoman pillow).
