Interior Design

About: Michael Hampton Design specializes in residential projects in Washington, DC and across the country that epitomize the principles of harmony, balance, classicism, appropriateness and sophistication. His projects have included private residences in Washington DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, the Napa Valley, Santa Fe and Aspen. Philosophy: For each of our projects, our goal is to create harmonious, comfortable and thoughtful interiors that are ultimately a reflection of the tastes and lifestyles of our clients. With extensive knowledge of the decorative arts and architecture, our work represents a broad range of styles from classical to contemporary. We work closely with a variety of highly skilled artisans, craftsman and contractors to create finely detailed interiors of uncompromising quality and lasting beauty. We approach each project as a creative collaboration with all of our clients. Most importantly, our job is to listen to our clients so that we have a true understanding and appreciation of how they live and the things that inspire them. Background: After a successful tenure with San Francisco designer Steven Volpe, Michael Hampton further honed his knowledge and appreciation, artistry, and modern classicism as senior designer with Thomas Pheasant Design before founding his own firm in 2009. A California native, Michael grew up appreciating the qualities of natural light and the outdoors, understanding their integral role in the mood of a space. His designs marry this reverence for natural light and the spirit of the West Coast with the traditions and classicism of the East Coast, creating interiors with a uniquely relaxed yet refined feel.

For this @michaellhampton designed living room, I was inspired by Coco Chanel’s Rue Cambon apartment that was nearly lined entirely of extraordinary Coromandel screens and timeless furniture. Coromandel screens are inset into niches cased in zebra wood. Hidden lighting in the casings softly highlights and focuses the attention on the incredible detailing of the screens. Plain textural fabrics on the furnishings let the screens become the focal point of the room as does the plaster coved ceiling #luxeinteriors #custominteriors #coromandelscreens #luxury #artdecoinspired #artdeco #chanel #tailored #mydesign @ Michael Hampton Design

Several years ago I had the honor of submitting a watercolor for the Obama’s White House Christmas card. I thought a festive painting of the the red room would be the perfect subject! It took many try’s to get the red just right but the results turned out pretty well. After submitting the painting I was asked to paint an exterior winter scene of the White House. This is the painting I submitted. The First Ladies choices were narrowed down to my painting and another artists work. Sadly, I wasn’t selected but I I had have included the dogs it is likely that I would have been chosen. Regardless, it was amazing experience and a tremendous honor! @ The White House

Designed as the guest bedroom in the DC Design House a few years back, the walls were lined with a delicate, floral patterned fabric and edged with a light blue passementerie that perfectly accented the exquisite landscape by John Matthew Moore in the style of Claude Lorraine.
