We received an email yesterday about interior designer John Barman and his home in the Hamptons that will be on the Kips Bay and Architectural Digest House Tour this weekend (the first half of the photos above and below are of his home). His designs are captivating, and he can knock out a contemporary, classic or eclectic space like no one’s business. Talk about versatile…”striking perfect balance between the sumptuous and the seriously hip. Barman is known for his clear-cut, sophisticated style, bold new ideas, and a strong point of view. He favors handsome, crisp lines; the unrestrained use of strong, resonant color; new uses for traditional materials; and the successful marriage of functionality and fine detailing.” Yeah baby! (If anyone wants details on the house tour, email Stacy or Mary).
