The New York based designer extraordinaire

Alexa Hampton is the President and featured designer of Mark Hampton LLC, the world famous design firm founded in 1976 by her late father Mark Hampton {whom was a celebrated symbol of gracious design for over 20 years}. The firm is located on the ever so chic Madison Avenue in New York. I had the absolute marvelous privilege of hearing Alexa speak at the Washington Design Center yesterday. We toured her father's designs from the decades via her personal slides. She guided us through the design she grew up with from one New York apartment to the next. Alexa is a brilliant communicator full of design intelligence while also offering a completely down to earth side with her contagious whit. She is very connected with her audience and spills over with authenticity when sharing tons of quirky and precious personal tid bits! I learned an immeasurable amount hearing her address her design work over the years. So grateful for the opportunity to be in such highly respected design company. Her talk met my expectations and so so much more! After her speech there was a luncheon in the newly opened super stylish portfolio showroom at the design center. Alexa also signed her book which was published just last month, The Language of Interior Design{pictured below}. It was a surreal and extremely wonderful day!

Alexa's most recently showcased work is located in the December issue of Architectural Digest which is out now. The first two pictures below are seen in the issue. Photos by Scott Frances
