Alexa Hampton: The Melrose Room

Share

Quality

In the early stages of dreaming up the Melrose Room for Pandora’s Manor, designer Alexa Hampton was told to “imagine the guest.” And she did just that — with a clever twist: she imagined herself as the guest. This gave her the freedom to create a chic, modern space that captures one of her favorite color palettes and a few playful features that fit the unconventional feel of the manor. Watch now to see the Melrose Room!

Products In This Episode

Pearce Chest

Hickory Chair

I wanted to explore dimension in both the layout of the figured sycamore wood grain as well as in a subtly shaped face. I did this to the piece to layer in richness in an otherwise streamlined design, states Alexa Hampton. Dark Walnut finish with Pearce Brass hardware standard as shown. The Pearce Chest is available in all stain and painted finishes as 5272-70.

Greenwich Bedside Table

Woodbridge Furniture

A terrific transitional table to have at bedside or next to a sofa. The rectangular top is veneered with figured eucalyptus and has a handy apron rail drawer. The table has an ample open middle section above a low storage drawer.

Oleander Chandelier

Currey & Company

Individually-formed leaves of Rustic Gold make up the Oleander Ceiling Mount. Four lights above the leaves shine down and create a glowing effect.
