Ever wonder what the interior of a Hamptons mansion looks like? The Hampton Designer Showhouse, now in its 14th year, is an important annual showcase for America’s premier design talent—even more importantly, it raises funds for Southampton Hospital at the same time.
This year’s Showhouse is a new shingle-style mansion in Bridgehampton, a luxurious showcase that has been generously provided by Paramount Homes of the Hamptons, Inc.
A who’s who of world-class interior designers and decorative artists, over 25 in all, will put their stamp on the rooms and exteriors. Mario Buatta is this year’s honorary chairman, while Jamie Drake and Alexa Hampton are the honorary design co-chairs.
“We’re continuing a feature we introduced last year which gives people a QR label for all of the rooms located inside of our Showhouse Journal,” Hamptons Designer Showhouse producer Tony Manning explains. “The recorded talks will be three-minute introductions and explanations by the designer who created the room, and it will feel like the designer is standing in the room with you.”
Another great aspect of this Hampton Designer is the fact that it’s centrally located in Bridgehampton. “It’s very accessible for people from all over the East End,” Manning says.
The Hampton Designer Showhouse opens with a Gala Preview Cocktail Party at the Showhouse on Saturday, July 19, 6–8:30 p.m. and will be open to the public July 20 through September 1. Showhouse hours will be as follows: Monday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Children under six, infants, strollers and pets are not allowed in the Showhouse. Admission to the Showhouse is $35 and includes the “Showhouse Journal.” Gala tickets are $225 each.
