Hamptons Show House - Take 2

Hello dear friends.  I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  I am writing this on my patio - it is such a gorgeous day.  This is the second installment of the Hamptons Show House.  If you missed Part 1 you can find it here, and if you missed the rest of the day, you can find it here.  Part 3 will cover the  patio and pool house.

I dared Miss B to model on the bed.  Glad I didn't bet any serious cash.  I didn't care for the wall covering in this room.  It looked like vinyl wrapping paper.  The model was lovely, though.

As a reminder from Part 1, there is definitely a beachy, coastal theme to this house. 

The house was jam packed with doodads and knickknacks. 

Two fancy Hamptons ladies chattin' it up.

This is the room where I think the designer went rogue.  You'll see what I mean in a minute.

Part of the reason.

I liked these, though.

This is the moment where I wondered if one of those mirrors was a candid camera.  I am not quite sure what the plastic things hanging off the wall signified.  I don't think that I could sleep with those creepy things crawling the wall. 

And it looks like my friends felt the same way.

A lot of stuff going on in this hallway.

Looks like Miss B found something in the closet that she liked.

The lady in charge told us that the vanity sells for 60K.  I wonder if that includes the candles...

Dude trying to catch her breath from all the excitement.

This is the upstairs den.  
It was so pink, it made my teeth itch.

Love this chair!

Dude trying to absorb all the pinkness.

Stay tuned for Part 3.

Until next time...

I wonder if Chili's in the mood for a make over.

Then again, maybe not.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Feel free to contact me through comments and email. I love to hear from my readers!


  1. Having been there I second every single opinion stated here.....that one bedroom with the creepy things on the wall I so did not get nor that pink room that was over the top pink, couldn't they have opted for a softer pink!!!! Overall there were nice spaces but a lot of it just felt too overdone in terms of trying to make some kind of statement. Always fun to see what you are up to...enjoy your Sunday afternoon.

  2. Ok, I hope I don't offend anyone out there but the whole time I was looking at this house I was thinking "what the what"???? Do you think it was done as a joke? Surely no one would take this place seriously?!

    Moving on....I LOVED you said your teeth itched...that's one of my favorite sayings! It confirmed to me that we must be sistas fo real!

  3. I am guessing that the show house designers wanted the patrons to get their money's worth, so they gave them (1) plenty of accessories to look at and (2) a few unforgettable rooms. From your post, I would say "mission accomplished." Thanks for sharing your adventure with us homebodies.

  4. I loved part I - part II, not so much! Thanks for sharing.

  5. WOW! I agree with you. I liked what you liked, and did not like the 'rogue' bedroom. I wonder if those creepy things on the wall are air plants. They go along with the succulent framed art. I guess beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder!

  6. Beautiful home in a beautiful location but the interior design is sorely lacking in good taste and a bit of restraint so important to good design. This designer appears to be in love with the concept of grouping things on the wall and covering every single space or surface with something. Oh well...if all our homes were the same what a boring interior design world it would be! thanks for sharing.

  7. Wow there was a lot going on there for sure! Totally agree with all of your assessments and tell Chili to run from the pink paint!

  8. hmmmmmm......I feel a bit dizzy. So. Much. Stuff.

  9. Just my little opinion, Katie, but they simply got this all wrong! Too much...too much...it was all lost in translation....too bad!

  10. I always love a home tour and you do such a great job, Katie. I agree--too much pink and too much spidery plant does the wall....wowza. It's still fun to see. Thanks for sharing this little piece of the East Coast.
    Please join us for the Lifestyle Linkup again on Friday!

  11. Hmmm not sure how I feel about the show house this year.. too much a good thing may be too much LOL! xo K

  12. Those fuzzy things hanging on the wall reminded me of the "decorating" show Trading Spaces when Hildy glues straw to some poor homeowners' walls. Definitely jumped the shark!

  13. The fuzzy things on the wall probably a reminiscent of a feathered bait for fishing.
