If you love the color blue, you’re in luck! Today’s charming home tour features a traditional Southampton house decorated with a generous dose of blue. Rich traditional details keep the home from floating away in a sea of blue. The effect is both dramatic and appealing. The home is decorated by Anthony Baratta LLC whose work has appeared in numerous magazines, including House Beautiful and Architectural Digest. (This post contains affiliate links.)
Wood beams accent a vaulted, planked ceiling painted pale blue. Architectural details are brushed with the same hue. A large Victorian mirror adorns one of two fireplaces in the living room with blue and white furniture.
A pastoral oil painting (which looks like golfers to me) graces the second fireplace.
A beautiful winding staircase is wallpapered with a simple geometric pattern. A stately grandfather clock is tucked into one of many alcoves in this Southampton Blue home.
A sweet collection of ginger jars lines simple shelving in another alcove.
The dining room is pure elegance with soft gray upholstered chairs and a traditional chandelier. The oval, mullioned window adds character and charm.
Note how the kitchen cabinet doors mimic the arched shape of alcoves throughout the home. And why limit yourself to just one pendant light in the kitchen and breakfast nook when you can enjoy several?
Vaulted ceilings in the bedroom also wear the same soft blue as seen in the living room. Ample windows provide plenty of natural light throughout today’s Southampton Blue charmer.
You’ll find more alcoves in the bathrooms. This one hugs a beautiful double sink vanity.
Can I please enjoy a luxurious bath in this claw foot tub tucked in a bay window? This photo makes me want to paint my own claw foot tub the same soft blue.
A slightly darker blue makes its appearance on the trim work found on one of the home’s porches. You can see the dining room’s oval window through the French doors.
Another porch offers gray and white patio furniture for a calming, soothing space.
You’ll find more photos of today’s Southampton Blue home over at Houzz.
