Alexa Hampton, Decorating in Detail
DCOTA Winter Market 2014 Keynote
Wednesday, February 5 // 1:00 p.m.
Celebrated designer and author of The Language of Interior Design takes us deeply into her process of selecting details for elegant, classic homes with inviting living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, kitchens, and other spaces. In her first book, Alexa Hampton shared the basics of interior design–Contrast, Proportion, Color, and Balance–to rave reviews from readers and the media. In Decorating in Detail, Alexa shares the development process for eight elegant homes in locations from New York City to New Orleans. Walking readers through each room, she describes how she and the homeowners chose all of the elements, from textures to fabrics to furniture. Sidebars on the best placement for lamps, outlets, and more (inspired by her popular Wall Street Journal “Where-to” column) and Sharpie drawings that show how she visualized the room’s transformations help the reader build an unprecedented understanding of interior home design as a whole.
