Interior designer extraordinaire Alexa Hampton is known for her collections of home furniture, fabric, lighting and rugs, all cast in her timeless, classic aesthetic. Elements of British architecture, Roman antiquities and pretty, neutral colors are hallmarks of Hampton’s style, and result in comfortable and elegant rooms. Named by Architectural Digest as one of the top 100 interior designers and architects in the world, Alexa Hampton is also president of Mark Hampton LLC, the design firm launched in the 1970s by her legendary father. Hampton has put her own name on a variety of high-quality home products: two lines of woven fabrics (the Alexa Hampton for the Mark Hampton Signature Collection and Alexa Hampton Designs, both for Kravet), carpets (the Alexa Hampton Carpet Collection for Stark Carpet), fireplaces (Chesney's), furniture (the Alexa Hampton Collection, for Hickory Chair Company), and lighting (the Alexa Hampton Lighting Collection for Visual Comfort & Co.). She's also one of the three designers who helped launch Gilt's Home Design Boutiques line.
“The use of a pale or white color scheme in a house is the equivalent of speaking in a whisper; it is dignified and restrained,” says Alexa Hampton in her book Alexa Hampton: The Language of Interior Design. “One must lean in closer to ‘hear’ what is being said.” Here, Hampton has curated a selection of furnishings and accents, in tones of white and cream, which are beautifully understated.
