The master bedroom at Hampton Designer Showhouse was designed by Jennifer Garrigues with Diana El Daher. "Whenever I am traveling in the world my thoughts always wander back to the British Colonies" says Jennifer Garrigues. This was one of my favorite rooms, unfortunately these images do no credits to its perfectly accomplished representation of what a "sophisticated room in a British colonized exotic island" would look like. Dark wood floors, carved mahogany furniture, the use of color around the room and big leafy indoor plants are basic elements in British Colony design. When I walked into this room I felt as if I was transported to a relaxing remote island.
