Comfort and style define Hamptons homes, and Topping Rose House, a luxury guest house and spa in the Hamptons, reflects just that. Although Topping Rose House was originally an 1842 Greek revival mansion, it now feels like an über-chic Hamptons home down to the most minute details.
At the moment, grey is very popular in interior design, and it’s a perfect color for the Hamptons because it complements the often soft misty light. Alexandra Champalimaud, the talented interior designer for Topping Rose, used various shades and textures of the color throughout the mansion. Champalimaud’s mantra for creating this inviting décor was, “Juxtaposition of something edgy and something soft.” Exemplary of this, the space’s contemporary loveseats, banquette seating and modern coffee tables easily blend with antique architectural elements.
A four poster bed harkens back to the antique wooden versions, yet here the metal frame creates a modern feel.
Beadboard is a prevalent décor element in Hamptons homes. Either original to the structure or added later, it gives a country ambiance to any space. At Topping Rose, the inviting linen sofa is contrasted by the stark white coffee table cubes, adhering to Alexandra’s design concept. Here it works perfectly with a contemporary setting.
Bravo, Alexandra! You really nailed the Hamptons look!!
