Design Crush: Kim Coleman
I recently found the work of Kim Coleman by reading the NY TIMES and no it wasn’t in the Home and Garden (even though it should have been), but in the Style section under weddings! One of my favorite things to do on Sunday is read about all the recent couples that tied the knot and see what they do for a living. In doing this I saw that Mrs. Coleman’s son recently wed in Palm Beach.
Mrs. Coleman started her career in 1981 and was a founding partner at Design House Interiors. She then moved on to working at Sotheby’s Auction house and most recently has her own firm that has offices in New York and Palm Beach.
I'm happy to hear that she is nearby neighbor and that some of her work includes homes from out on the island.
One of my favorite examples of her work has to be this South Hampton residence:
Nice view as you are pulling up to your driveway:
Then you get to enter this amazing living room in cool tones of blues and cream. I love the mix of Swedish design elements and beach cottage style which just comes off as plain elegant yet comfy.
Below is a close-up shot. Don’t you just love the Greek key trim on the sofa! Oh and that rug!
Then we move on to the sitting room, which has amazing an amazing map of the island:
Moving on below is my favorite bedroom in which I would request to sleep in if I was ever a house guest. I love that pop of blue that boxes the room. I once designed a room around that blue shade. It was heavenly. I loved the energy I got from being in that room, but now I love just the little pop of it.
Now we can slowly make our way outdoors and enjoy the view from the sunroom:
Of course no Hampton’s home would be complete with a spacious pool and outdoor area. I love everything including the landscaping and would totally love a peek into that pool house!
I hope you enjoyed the tour. I found a new crush and someone I’ll be following from now on.
