Welcome back to my tour of the 2014 Hampton Designer Showhouse. As promised, today we’ll ascend the staircase and checkout the Mudroom on the main floor, along with its extremely cute Powder Room, and the Upper Staircase Landing on the second floor.
The Mudroom was designed by Melanie Roy Design, LLC. http://www.melanieroydesign.com/
The super cool mudroom at the 2014 Hampton Designer Showhouse features Navy Blue walls and lots of crisp white ship-lap siding at the wainscoting. The designer has created an updated beachy vibe with surfboards and large scale artwork of ocean photography. I especially love the ocean wave rug too!
The adjoining powder room is also clad in ship-lap siding, painted in alternating stripes. This contributes to the updated nautical theme, along with the ship lights and riveted metal framed mirror. The rope basket in the corner gives some texture and warmth too. This is a terrific powder room!
Let’s climb on up to the second floor stair landing, where I’ll share the work of the Henry & Co Design team. http://henryandcodesign.com/
Climbing the stairs, you are greeted by sunlight streaming through windows in the second floor stair landing, which highlights the gleaming hardwood floors. One of the first design elements to notice is the gorgeous, bold blue floral fabric upholstering the walls above the ship-lap wainscoting. It has such a vintage floral feel to me–maybe from the 1940’s or 50’s? But the color combination is so fresh and trendy!
Looking back at the staircase, you’ll notice the simple sisal carpet runner, the cute beach photography and that adorable vintage looking trellis-style lantern (one of a pair in the space). Also, you can really see the magenta ribbon applied around the edge of the upholstered walls. I love having that little bit of contrast tape, outlining all that bold floral pattern.
Turning just slightly to the left, you can see the lovely Parsons-style console table with an amazing pair of oversized cobalt blue pottery lamps on top. The pair of pouf ottomans beneath the console were so textural and interesting as well!
I can’t leave this image without mentioning the wonderful pair of rattan chairs used in the space. Rattan is so trendy and popular right now, whether used in its natural state, as seen here, or painted in bright colors.
I’ll leave you with this final image of the Upper Landing at the 2014 Hampton Designer Showhouse. Henry & Co Design has even more images on their own Facebook and Instagram pages. I apologize, because I was unable to get a good image of the corner off to the right, which features a fantastic custom tufted banquette seating area. Unfortunately, there was a volunteer sitting there the entire time, making it impossible to get a good shot. But you can find plenty of amazing photographs in this space on the Henry & Co website, so you should definitely go visit them!

So, what did you think of the Mudroom, Powder Room, and Upper Landing in the 2014 Hampton Designer Showhouse? The updated nautical feel in the mudroom and powder room was so fresh and current. And the Upstairs Landing had so many quirky vintage-feeling elements (almost Palm Beach style, to me) that were executed in such a modern way. I loved both of these spaces for their youthful exuberance!
Next time we’ll take a peek inside the laundry room and take a good look at an exciting guest bedroom with lots of pattern. Until then, don’t forget to tell everyone you know about Kristine Robinson’s Interiors…I need all the friends I can get!
