Rooms With a View

Posted By Rebecca-NY | Oct 24, 2012 | 4 Comments | Category: Uncategorized

The 18th Annual Rooms With a View design show is just around the corner and this year I’m lucky enough to be creating a vignette with my friend and colleague, Topher Carnes.  Topher is a decorative artist who specializes in highly-detailed room sized wall murals, tromp l’oeil, luxurious Venetian plasters, distressed antique finishes, rich metal and leaf patinas, faux wood grain and marbleizing effectives.  Together, we are creating a decorator’s office titled “Unfinished Business”.  With a mix of black and whites, lime greens, chartreuse, eggplant and silver metallics, we’ve come up with a room you won’t want to miss.   The best part about the show, is you get to shop while viewing the vignettes and take home a little (or big) something special.

 

This year’s honorary chairman is Thom Felicia who you can meet at the Gala Preview party on Thursday, Nov. 1.  Tickets are limited but available by calling the Southport Congregational Church at 203.255.4538

Topher and I will be creating a vignette titled “Unfinished Business”

Sneak peek of our color scheme

There are 12 other great designers who will be creating vignettes and making this years show a must see.  Not only will a percentage of the proceeds go to the Southport Congregational Church but the entire event is a tribute to the late Albert Hadley who we all miss and admire dearly.  Join us at this year’s show and help make it a huge success for the Southport Congregational Church

For those of you who love the industrial chic look of Restoration Hardware but you haven’t been able to get that look because you live in a small city apartment – you’re in luck!  RH has recently launched a new line called ‘Big Style Small Spaces’.  True story.  You can now shop at RH regardless of the scale of your home.  They’ve created this line with us city dwellers in mind, and as they have always done, made it with perfection.  So what are you waiting for?  Take a look at their catalog today or visit their ‘small spaces‘ section online.  You’ll be thrilled to see what they’ve come up with and even happier once it’s in your home!

Big styles working their magic oversees

The perfect size table and chairs and enough room for the bar which makes your guests happy!

Plenty of options for styles, shapes and finishes

They’ve scaled down the sofas so you can still have the look while keeping everything in proportion.  Don’t be afraid to use oversized lamp shades, however.  They make a great statement!

As you can see there’s a lot you can work with to make your small space just as stylish as those who have extra square footage.  Time for that makeover you’ve been dreaming about.. and don’t forget to look at their art – they’ve got some game changers in that department :)
