The 2011 Hampton Designer Showhouse will be at a glorious estate, which opens on Sunday July 24 until September 4 in Bridgehampton, New York, near the ocean.   An 11,500 square foot newly constructed home on 2.5 acres has been chosen for the event. The room selection offers many choices for the designer.  With gambrels aplenty the house has 7 bedrooms, 8.5 baths, a two-story living room, movie theater, wine cellar, steam shower, sauna, as well as a 1,500-sq-ft pool house.

After September 4, the house will be on the market for $6.5 million. Undoubtedly the house will be seen by many influential people, who may have homes of their own to decorate or renovate, so decorating a room can prove to be beneficial to a designer.  The proceeds from the event will benefit the Southampton Hospital.
