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

Fall Color Trends

Posted By Rebecca-NY | Sep 10, 2012 | 1 Comment | Category: Uncategorized

Summer is sadly on its way out but Fall is approaching and with weather like we have today in NYC, I can’t exactly complain.  The sun is shining, there’s a nice breeze and humidity seems to be a thing of the past.  I could have easily just jinxed us, but let’s focus on what is important and that is the Fall color trends of 2012.  Pantone follows these trends with a close eye every year and new season so I thought it would be fun to look at the colors and see how we did in the decorating world.  I selected some rooms that I thought were done tastefully, using these Fall colors.

 

A beautiful lacquered “french roast” living room by Jeffrey Bilhuber from Architectural Digest

A punch of  ”honey gold” to give this room some cheer

“Pink flambe” isn’t just for the girly rooms

Ashley Whittaker uses “tangerine tango” in this latticed sunroom

This “ultramarine green” gives a nice casualness and calming effect

You can’t go wrong with a pop of ” bright chartreuse”

Very timely having just had the Summer 2012 games – “olympian blue”

Thom Felicia knows how to create a sanctuary with “titanium”

The “rhapsody” walls give this otherwise formal room some playfullness

The walls feel very neutral and soothing with this “rose smoke”
