Textile Heaven

Miles Redd has collaborated with Schumacher to create a fantastic new line of fabrics and wallpapers which you can see here.  The absolute showstopper, I think, is his Brighton Pavilion.  I almost fell off my chair when I saw it…Looks like a hand painted paper -- but it is not, it's a regular screened paper which I think is nicer much  than the digital variety.  Of course, nothing beats the luxury, beauty and originality of a hand painted original paper from Gracie, De Gournay or Paul Montgomery,  but Miles hits it out of the park with this one.  Feast for the eyes!! Bravo Miles!!!
Miles Redd for Schumacher "Brighton Pavillion." Beyond gorgeous!!!



Giving Back: Ronald McDonald House of Long Island

On October 8th, 2015,  I was thrilled to support the Ronald McDonald House by participating in its "Taste of Design Event".  I was one of twenty-one participating interior designers to create a  10 x 10' "room" Vignette.  All of the the items used to create the space were donated to Ronald McDonald House of Long Island who sold the  items at a Gala party and weekend sale…Ronald McDonald house is a wonderfully special place where parents and families of seriously ill children can stay -- often free of charge-- while caring for their children who are being treated at the nearby Hospital.  It is a beautiful thing to support an organization that provides a warm and welcoming home away from home for families when they most need it.  Thank you to the big hearted staff and countless supporters of RMH.
