A pre-tour Designer Breakfast at the Patterson Club, featuring a presentation by renowned interior designer Alexa Hampton, will take place the morning of the house tour.
As the daughter of interior design legend Mark Hampton, Alexa Hampton learned the language of good design, the vocabulary to speak it, and the elements that define it at a very early age.   Now one of America’s most influential designers herself, Alexa Hampton has won countless awards for her design work on houses, apartments, planes, boats, furniture and even cars. She designs with a distinctly European flavor, expertly portraying subtlety and warmth using elements both classic and eclectic.
Alexa Hampton is also the author of two critically praised books: The Language of Interior Design, and Decorating in Detail. She will be available for a book signing of her recent book, Decorating in Detail, after the presentation.
