Another talented group of designers from around the United States are participants in this year’s 2016 Hampton Designer Showhouse, sponsored by Traditional Home to benefit Southampton Hospital. The house, set on 3.0 acres in Sag Harbor, is 10,200 square feet with eight bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, a finished lower level, a pool, and a tennis court. Open 11am-5pm through Monday September 5, Hampton Designer Showhouse admission, which includes a journal,  is $35. For more information visit here.

While  putting together this slideshow tour, beautifully photographed by Alan Barry, I noticed three major design trends: shag rugs everywhere, palettes of grey and white (or grey-blue and white) outnumbering the traditional coastal home color scheme of blue and white, and sparer, more edited spaces. The almost-tented, gingham-look redux Master Bathroom by new-to-me designer Liliane Hart stood out as my favorite space, followed by another new-to-me designer Kyle Roberts’ almost revolutionary use (by coastal home and showhouse standards) of sunny yellow in the Junior Master Sitting Room, and Keith Baltimore’s rear terrace design because he used outdoor furniture I’d never seen before (fresh, curvilinear!), and opted out of an expected outdoor rug and pillow-covered sectional pairing. Let me know which interiors are your favorites and why in a comment below!
