Alexa Hampton, A Design Legend

A couple of weeks ago we attended an ASID event that featured Alexa Hampton
and her book The Language of Interior Design

She was just as fabulous in person as she is in pictures and her design. She graciously signed each book and had a small chat with us as we met her!

Her design love started from her father, Mark Hampton...a design legend himself. She has now completed hundreds of beautiful interiors and put a book together explaining her theories. 

She briefly spoke about the 4 elements she believes cultivates design: contrast, proportion, color and balance. During her presentation, we not only got to learn about her design...but her personality. 
She is full of spunk and always ready to crack a joke ;) She kept the presentation light and
 happy with lots of personal stories and experiences.

Contrast: She spoke a lot about how she loves book spines and the color contrast 
they can provide in an otherwise neutral room.

Color: Bringing color around the room in unexpected places is always a statement.

 Balance: In order to create the timeless, classic effect that her clients love,
she feels the importance of balance is exceptional.

Proportion: Creating unity between the furniture pieces and their surrounding
architecture is the key to correct proportion.
Thanks, Taylors on Ten, for hosting the event.

All in all, we came away with a fresh look and new inspirations!
