Much ado has been made in blogland over the Georgetown townhouse of Alexandra Wentworth and George Stephanopolous, published in the current issue of Elle Decor. While it is quite lovely, I am reminded of my love for their East Hampton home, which was published a few years ago (by either Elle Decor or InStyle Home, I can't remember which). Designer Elizabeth Martin is responsible for the interiors in both homes.
In the living room, every shade of blue imaginable is paired with wicker furnishing for a decidedly -- but not literal -- beachy feeling.
This kitchen spurred my love of white kitchens, if I recall correctly. I still love the pale blue walls, that gorgeous antique piece used as an island and all of the cottage details. I also find it interesting that the ceiling is a sand color, instead of the usual white.
The walls of stairwell are filled with mirrors of every shape and size. I imagine this is a pretty simple and budget-friendly decorating trick, to gather old frames at thrift stores and the like, and have mirrors cut to fit.
The bedroom walls are the perfect shade of blue-green. I've got to track this color down!
And their daughters' room is perfectly sweet. I thought this was too funny: It is a well-known fact that our first daughter's (should we have one) name will be Elliot (family and friends already refer to her by name) and I've recently added her fictional sister, Harper, to the line-up. I just read that George and Alexandra's daughters' names are ... Elliot and Harper! Did I subconsciously retain that information from the Elle Decor/InStyle Home spread that I so loved? Who knows, but so much for originality!
