It’s hard to believe, but this time last year my team and I had just completed a room for the Hampton Designers Showhouse. Talk about an amazing experience! Now a new class of truly phenomenal designers are showcasing their work — and, WOW, there are some fantastic ones to see.
I also fell hard for this vision-in-blue dining room designed by the talented duo, Jennifer Mabley and Austin Handler of Mabley Handler Interior Design.
I could go on and on, because there are so many fabulous rooms, but don’t take my word — get the details and go see it before the it closes on September 3.
Speaking of Showhouses….
I have to admit all of this talk about showhouses and design made me a bit nostalgic for the experience! Which is all the more reason why I am thrilled to announce that I will be designing a room in this year’s Holiday House in NYC!!
Holiday House is going to be such a fun experience because each room is based on a holiday or an occasion. In past years, they’ve had everything from a traditional Easter room to a room built around the television-and-film awards season to an April Fools Day surprise!

[April Fools Day room (which gives the illusion of a Paris Apartment) by Marjorie Sobiloff and Cathy Yohay of SY Interior Designs]
This year the proceeds will benefit an amazing cause that has helped thousands of women, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
So, please consider this an official save the date card…
Holiday House 2012
October 25 to November 18
2 East 63rd Street, NYC
But…you’ll have to wait to see which room I’m designing and which holiday I chose to celebrate!! Stay tuned!!
