The Chinoiserie Bedroom - Alexa Hampton

Alexa Hampton - Kips Bay Decorator Show House - So Haute
 I am in love with this cozy elegant bedroom by Alexa Hampton. Can you find the Chinoiserie elements? I spot a Chinese screen, a Chinese gourd lamp, Greek key pillow shams, and blanc de Chine figures on the bedside table. To me, there is nothing nicer in a bedroom than a canopy bed - I have two in my home. I love the lacquered charcoal walls and silver ceiling. Dark lacquered walls were a signature of her dad Mark Hampton. BTW, his book Mark Hampton on Decorating is to me one of the best books on interior design of all time.

I tend to be very symmetrical in my tastes and I'm not sure I adore the mix of bedside tables and lamps. I tend to favor not matching the bedside tables, but using a matched pair of lamps. This is just a matter of personal preference of course. All in all, this is a stunning bedroom with a great English country vibe made all the better with its views of the Manhattan skyline.

While I am with you on the lamp issue, there are so many "WOW" factors in this room I have to move on past the lamp! That desk situation takes my breath away!!!
