I thought I'd start back afresh with my usual Monday Nook, but this Monday the images are my very own!!!....taken during my visit to the Hampton Designer Showhouse in Southampton, Long Island, a few weeks ago. I plan to share all of my photos from this beautiful home over time. Each room deserves its own special post.
This little nook was found in 'The Den', a transitional room between the kitchen and the Great Room, overlooking the magnificent deck, pool house and lush, green grounds. The Den was designed by Kate Singer, from Kate Singer Home, in an ethereal palette reflecting hues of the sky, the beach and the sand.
The Hampton Designer Showhouse is still open until September the 3rd. It's at 80 Flying Point Rd, Water Mill, NY....literally a 10 minute bike ride from Southampton Village... if you're that way inclined. I was! Rocked up with bike helmet hair, bike riding thongs (or flip flops for the non Australians), landed on the porch and announced that I had come all the way from Australia to see the The Hampton Designer Showhouse! Of course I got in for free with my declaration of geographical dedication! Thank you Mary! They even had the gate boy look after my bike for me while I socialised with all the beautifully dressed Southampton ladies who kept their watchful eyes on each room.I have to tell you about the kitchen next! When they heard I'd come all the way from Australia they gave Mr Bakes, the kitchen designer, a call ...as he was in town .....and he came up to meet me and tell me all the kitchen goss. It was beyond exciting. I tell you, it was so hard to leave that place. Blog stories for a year!
PS. Look! I'm still persisting with my love-hate relationship with Blogsy. I have been avoiding my laptop as when I open it, it says I have 3479 emails to tend to. I kid you not. I am starting them today....like in 5 minutes. Lighting orders first! ...if I can weed them out! Serves me right for leaving the country for almost 3 weeks!
PPS The links don't work, so here they are:
Ok, I'm going back to the laptop...where the photos load, the links work and the formatting doesn't have a mind of it's own!
