Hamptons Style

While visiting the Hamptons for the 4th of July, my senses were heightened due to the beauty of the homes and amazing architectural style.  They ranged from your simple shingle style homes to modern and contemporary.  The Maidstone Hotel is a perfect example, as it features an updated take on traditional Americana and Hamptons aesthetic in one.

The Maidstone Hotel

It was such a siren song we couldn’t help but stop in for a glass of Rose!

While in the Hampton’s, I was of course internet stalking some of the finest contemporary and modern architechtural elements prevalent in Hampton’s luxury design. I love taking inspiration from these concepts and applying them to my current projects in Memphis, Nashville, and beyond.

I love the full glass; it excels at maximizing light and natural beauty. These features are truly your best friend. We are currently working on a project in East Memphis where we have opted for full height glass windows, which elevate the elegance of the space and eliminate the need for much decor. More to come on this collaborative project…

While driving through the quaint streets of East Hampton, I was charmed by the prevalent shingle style houses. Shingle style architecture (shown above) is a uniquely American style popularized in the late 1800s by architects who wanted to do away with the highly ornamental Victorian style. The diverse forms of architecture combined in Shingle style homes made them expensive to design and build. It’s no surprise then that most originated in the well-to-do coastal areas of Newport, Rhode Island and Long Island’s East End.

When I happened on this photo I was beyond thrilled! This looks like a softer, lighter replica of one of my current, in progress, Nashville Kitchen designs. With luck, it will be unveiled in a few months!
