Residences: accessorized for Tipsy Skipper

The Ocean House is a recently restored hotel in Watch Hill, RI. Overlooking beautiful Block Island Sound, the Ocean House has incredible views from every angle. If you are ever in the area, you should definitely stop in for a cocktail!

 As you may have seen, the Tipsy Skipper 'burb can sometimes be seen in the OH driveway.

Recently, there was a luncheon highlighting four of the interior designers who each styled a residence: Samantha Knapp, Philip Gorrivan, Jean Doyen de Montaillou, and Betsey Ruprecht. I was fortunate to be seated with Philip who has his own collection of textiles for Duralee, and has designed homes from Nantucket to Palm Beach.
Afterward, there was a house tour. Each designer's unique style came through in each design, and complemented the views of the ocean.

We couldn't help but notice that the color palettes in the residences coordinated with the Tipsy Skipper Fall prints! There was so much color, and some unexpected pairings.

Lots of Orange!  

 Purple and Yellow complement each other and really POP
Notice the purple sofas and those amazing yellow lamps.
This circular room is separate from the residence, connected by a sundeck, and has the most incredible views! The perfect space for cocktails with friends.

More orange!

Samantha Knapp and Betsey Ruprecht collaborated on one of the residences. Opening out to the beach, this chic residence had lots of nautical details - very inspiring for Tipsy Skipper

Samantha Knapp, one of the talented interior designers hosted an incredible event earlier this month at Tiger Lily's (Samantha's studio and workshop) in Greenwich, CT. The cocktail party was a one-year anniversary celebration. Samantha was a fantastic hostess and so nice to include Tipsy Skipper, along with some other local vendors. There was food catered by local restaurants, and the cocktails were flowing!
