The guest room he designed took my breath away.
by Michael Hampton
My favorites include the walls with decorative trim around the perimeter, a prima alpaca throw by Sandra Jordan (please see my previous post on alpaca, if you'd like to learn more), the contemporary wall sconces and David Iatesta bed that add a nice mix to the traditional setting.
I was also inspired by the artwork, including the framed busts.
You can see a preview of Mr. Hampton's design work at this house on DC by Design's blog on Bare Bones Day.
Mr. Hampton's style resonates with a time period I admire tremendously, neoclassicism. His taste is impeccable. I also learned from reading a recent post by DC by Design that he is an artist with an emphasis on architectural watercolors.
I am a huge admirer of architecture as well as topiaries. It is no wonder I love the above watercolor by Mr. Hampton himself. What an artist! And he's a blogger too.
As I was researching Mr. Hampton's work, I came across an article on Apartment Therapy's blog featuring a house tour of his home. It is even more evident how much his style is in line with what I favor.
And his bio confirms his design background is top-notch, having worked with well-known designers and experience working with large-scale projects.
It was with great pleasure that my girlfriends and I got to meet Mr. Hampton in person. He kindly shared his inspiration and resources with us with the friendliest demeanor that we found comforting.
In my next post, I will share our intake of the master bedroom designed by the ever-so-friendly, Sally Steponkus.
