Nothing fancy or tricky about this post.  I thought I’d share a few of my favorite things that I’ve come across over the past few months while shopping for clients.  It’s a mixed bag of things so enjoy..

                     This cabinet made me want to jump for joy when I found it – how great are those GIANT polished nickel knobs?!!

Simple yet elegant.  The shape on this lamp is just perfect.



A great polished nickel pendant from Restoration Hardware for the kitchen


The image doesn’t do this fabric by Kelly Wearstler justice.  It’s stunning in person!

Showtime House Marries High Design

Posted By Rebecca-NY | Sep 10, 2010 | 1 Comment | Category: Uncategorized

For the third straight year, Showtime Networks worked with some of the world’s top designers, who drew inspiration from the network’s series and redesigned high-end restidential spaces to create the SHOWTIME HOUSE!  The show this year is located in Midtown Manhattan’s Cassa Hotel and Residences and is open for private events and public tours until the end of October.  Tickets for admission are $15 each and all of the proceeds go to the Harlem Children’s Zone.  For full details on the SHOWTIME HOUSE, its designers and sponsors and more please visit

Here’s a sneak peak at some of the rooms that were inspired by Showtime original series such as DEXTER, NURSE JACKIE, WEEDS, THE BIG C, CALIFORNICATION, THE BORGIAS


The Big C




Nurse Jackie


The Borgias


It’s a wonderful show and I highly recommend taking a tour if you live in NYC or are visiting over the next month or so.  Each room is higly inspiring so whether you’re a Showtime fan or a fan of design in general,  there’s something for everyone to see and enjoy at the Showtime House 2010!
