My design plans for the Hamptons Designer Showhouse have been progressing at breakneck speed. With a deadline of July 12 for the room to be "photo ready", I've been firing on all cylinders and am glad to report that the rooms fabric, wallpaper, rug, light fixtures, tables and bedding have been ordered! Whew! I've partnered with some fantastic companies, many I've had the pleasure to work with before, some new to me and simply fabulous. It's been so much fun to choose furnishings and fabrics to create my own dream room.
I've had a crush on Phillip Jeffries, one of the world's premiere wallcovering companies for a while, and have used their elegant grasscloths and silks to add just the right glamorous touch to client's homes. I'm thrilled that Phillip Jeffries has partnered with me for the Showhouse and I've chosen an exotic and elegant grasscloth for the bedroom.
The stylish design reminds me of my trip to Spain last summer--the beautiful Moorish influences of the Alhambra are echoed in the wallpaper print--so subtle and sophisticated, the perfect backdrop to a modern room with references to a rich past.
More news from the Showhouse soon!
