Alexa Hampton Family Room with Architecturals

Architectural prints purchased from the George Glazer Gallery are pictured in photographs of the family room of interior decorator Alexa Hampton's recently renovated Manhattan apartment, where she lives with her husband and three children. The family room design is described as "classical meets contemporary." It features a wall painted a soft blue and hung with a large painting surrounded by sepia-printed heliogravures from the George Glazer Gallery of ancient Greek and Roman architectural elements by Hector d'Espouy. Hampton cites them in a list of her favorite artworks, observing:

"Planning one's foreseeably permanent home gives one a license, perhaps even a mandate, to live only with what you really, truly love. For me that means classical details. Architectural fragments à la Sir John Soane. Grand Tour souvenirs. Landscape painting by Julian Barrow, prints by Giovanni Battista Piranesi and Hector d'Espouy, and photographs by Massimo Listri."
