When the July-August issue of Veranda arrived, there was plenty of design inspiration to love! While the cover of Mark D. Sikes home was enough motivation to pick up the issue, what was inside was equally as delightful. Immediately when I saw that Kirsten Fitzgibbons and Kelli Ford had a property featured, I knew that it would be something spectacular.
Living in Dallas, I love to frequent their home store Madison in Highland Park Village. I have also admired Kelli’s University Park home for years. Every time the sister design duo comes together they create fresh, refined, and luxurious spaces that stand the test of time. Their use of patterns, textures, and color is unparalleled, especially in this vivacious Southampton home by architect Peter Pennoyer.
The entry is instantly receptive and gracious. When you see color you know you are entering a happy home.
I love the use of purple, blue, and white throughout the house. It adds such a young and fresh element!
The rooms have such a collected, yet uncluttered feel to them. The pink is a sophisticated shade that avoids looking juvenile. It would be hard to walk into this room and not feel instantly happy!
What an ideal Hampton’s kitchen. It is simple, clean, and full of fresh light.
The dining room takes a more scaled down approach to really let the view be the focal point. I adore the soft blue walls. The other dining area featured in the magazine takes a different approach with a bolder use of blue and white.
Fitzgibbons and Ford tried to avoid nautical references throughout the house, but left this mahogany hallway, similar to a luxury ocean liner, intact. What I love most about this image is the view into the bedrooms. Lovely fabrics and colors that are perfectly placed and Hamptons chic.
A perfect play of color with the purple Donghia linen walls as a backdrop to the lively blue and white fabric. That Bunny Williams lamp is everything!
Kirsten and Kelli always have the most unbelievably beautiful monogrammed linens. If you ever visit their store Madison in Highland Park Village they can exquisitely initial everything from a lacquered tray to a pad of paper.
Talk about blue and white! What a serene and heavenly bathroom. Notice how they tiled the ceiling giving it a jewel box feel! That potted palm gives a splash of personality.
