KRISTEN FARRELL HOME
Kristen Farrell, the go-to for home design, staging and connoisseur of true Hamptons living, has launched Kristen Farrell Home in order to bring clients move-in-ready homes that are elegantly livable. She brings over 20 years of experience to the title and is kicking off her new brand by opening an 8,000 sq/ft Show Home in Watermill for the Summer of 2018.
Kristen states, "It's important to understand true Hamptons living because it really is one of a kind — together comes socializing, relaxation and an elevated sense of enjoyment. I tried to bring these ideas, along with many more, into this home with the open floor-plan, family-friendly space and sophisticated entertaining areas. You walk in the front door and can see the back lawn through the windows — it's so welcoming!". The home is laid out over three levels and features a gym, outdoor spa, gourmet kitchen and sprawling master suite. "The main furnishings partnership with Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams really helped secure the aesthetic we were aiming for. Their products are so durable, customizable and chic — you always know their work when you see it!", Kristen adds.
Additional partners include Sherwin Williams (Kristen curated a new line of 24 exclusive Hamptons colors available at all 4,000 stores), Arteriors lighting, Sub-Zero/Wolf appliances, Samsung/LG electronics, and many others. "By working with these reputable brands we knew that the quality of the home would be unquestionable and that all products would blend together well. I wanted people to see the home knowing that everything was immediately available, customizable and reflective of a Hamptons lifestyle. Also, it's important for clients to understand the many existing relationships we have with top-tier companies."
By growing up on the North Shore and spending much of her youth boating, exploring and envisioning a life balanced with the outdoors, Kristen has translated her early-years interests directly into Kristen Farrell Home. "I wanted the paint colors of the home to emulate the nature and vibe of beach-side living… and that's why I came up with 'Salt Gray', 'Hamptons White', 'Bay Stone' and 'Bowman Navy' — each one is equally inviting and plays a crucial role in defining different areas of the home. We go bright and clean for entries, warmer with earth tones for bedrooms and everything in-between for living spaces depending on the furnishings and art choices. It was such an amazing opportunity to take these oceanic, geographical aspects of my life and put them under one roof so that people could see and learn how a Hamptons home can be a uniquely beautiful contribution to their lifestyles."
The Show Home is in Water Mill, New York, and is the first of many projects for Kristen Farrell Home. Kristen is available for private consulting and lives with her family in Bridgehampton, New York.
