 Everything was for sale and going fast at the annual Design on a Dime event for the charity Housing Works this past weekend at the Metropolitan Pavilion. More than 50 top interior designers created stylish vignettes with donated furniture and fabric which was all for sale at 50-70 percent off retail. The result- controlled chaos as the smart set scooped up some serious bargains!

 Bibliophile dream at David Duncan Antiques-note the fun faux wallpaper

 A dose of sunshine from Cullman and Kravis

 David Scott Interiors creates a gold dipped interior with a clever wall covering made from spray painted corrugated boxes. 

 Chinoiserie chic at Hamilton Design Associates was created with a stylish deep blue backdrop and rich textiles.

 Healing Barsanti created a bold architectural wall using chalk and blackboard paint-the classic motif continues with beautiful busts and furnishings.

Yetta and Tracey created a rocker chic room with a whimsical floral ceiling and edgy art.

 Great use of Celerie Kemble's new fabric line for Kravet as wall covering in Patrick James Hamilton's vivid room.

Driving maps were layered for an interesting wall covering. 

Yetta Banks room featured arresting photography and graphic black and white prints.
Happy Monday!

Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!

Thanks so much for the coverage of this wonderful event! One correction... the wall covering in my vignette was part of Celerie Kemble's line of printed grasscloths for Schumacher. But the folks at Jonathan Adler were well-represented, with a donated Bel Air vase and set of gorgeous Truesdale Coasters!

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this,
like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you
could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog.
A great read. I will definitely be back.
