This time of year, many cities across the country host show-home events, showcasing the work of interior designers, decorators and architects in either an historic or newly-built home, in an effort to raise money for a good cause. I’ve gone to some of these in the past and it’s always amazing to see what the designers come up with, although I’m not usually a fan of the ones who go off-script and incorporate stark modernism into a traditional home, for instance. Perhaps that makes me a fuddy-duddy, but that’s just me.
So, in recognition of the hard work that many of these designers perform, I’m sharing some photos I came across from the recent Hampton Designer Show House event in Bridgehampton. This modest abode at 1224 Scuttle Hole Road is the 2011 show house. I love these traditional Hamptons/Outer Banks beach homes. Oh, it's just a lottery-win away!
Per usual, my favorite room in this house is the white kitchen. Perfection! Below are some gorgeous images, although I wish these folks would just get out of the pictures. Really, it’s all about the kitchen, people.
Ladies, you look lovely, but seriously move aside so I can see the cabinetry.
Okay, at least this guy is allowing me a peek at the fabulous sink as well as that massive fridge behind him.
TGIF, kids. It’s been quite the week for all of us, I’m sure. Luckily, I’m joining some girlfriends at a new restaurant tonight, Harvest, for some gal time. Harvest is a farm-to-table concept restaurant, so I’m really excited to munch-down on some fresh, locally grown veggies and other delightful fare.

Again, guys, stop hogging up the space. I want to see the island! Okay, you on the left, because you're sporting seersucker, you can stay, but move as far to the left as possible.
