Hampton Designer Showhouse: Dining Room by Mabley Handler Interior Design

Saturday night I attended the Gala Premier Party for the 2012 Hampton Showhouse and it was great to see the designers in their element chatting about their spaces.  Among the folks I spoke with were the husband and wife team of Mabley Handler who told me that the inspiration for their room was the Jonathan Adler fabric on front of the chairs. The details of the room follow below.  You can read more about them at their website by clicking here.

Design Inspiration:

Our inspiration for the room was the multi-color blue chevron fabric by Jonathan Adler for Kravet (Pattern: Wabash, Color Aquamarine, used on the drapery and back-seat panels in the dining chairs)…We saw the fabric at Kravet earlier this spring, and even though the collection won’t be released until the fall, Kravet was able to get us some of the fabric for us to use at the Showhouse this summer. We loved the combination of peacock blues and aqua tones, it really set the color scheme for the whole room. The aqua and peacock blue tones in the room are bold and fun, yet still relaxing…They are referential to the ocean and to the Hamptons in a fresh and current way. Dining rooms are usually the most formal room in a house, and often the least-used, so we wanted to create a Hamptons dining room that was both sophisticated and playful, a room that entices you to entertain by drawing you in rather than making you feel like you need to keep out. We accomplished this by combining the fun, fresh Jonathan Adler/Kravet fabrics with high-quality Kravet furniture in white that had the weight of a formal dining room yet the light, airy feel of a Hamptons summer house…And since Mabley Handler Interior Design works exclusively in the Hamptons, we wanted to create a room that was representative of our vision for the direction of design in the Hamptons.
