Remember just last week I shared with you that we are designing the dining room at the Decorator Showcase in San Francisco?
Well, I have more news...
We were also asked to also design a space in an upcoming showcase in New York City (opening in mid-May) ELLE DECOR's Modern Life Concept house.
This means that we will actually have two showcases open in the month of May. One in San Francisco and one in New York!
It is truly an exciting spring.
This project is Elle Decor's first showcase in New York City and a beautiful newly designed building near the High Line.
You can view the website of the building at: 540w28.com
This project is interesting in that the designers that Elle Decor has chosen are all up-and-coming designers.
There are ten designers creating spaces in seperate two bedroom apartments. The five that have been announced so far are the "5 to Watch" (you might remember that Elle Decor honored me with this recognition last year). There are five other designers that are also working like mad that have not been formally announced yet (these five are the designers that Elle Decor has selected for the same honor in 2011). I have been sworn to secrecy on this, but I can tell you that the group of designers that I am working with is an extremely talented bunch. It is going to be a great project of fantastic undiscovered talent. I think this decision was interesting on the part of Elle Decor. It's a wonderful chance for people to discover new talent and give designers that are not well established a chance of their own.
For our design we are teaming with Bosch to design the kitchen/dining room. Our design is both modern and relaxed with a great mix of vintage pieces to complement the beautiful contemporary and clean lines of the dark wood cabinetry.
The ELLE DECOR Modern Life Concept House will be open to the public on the following weekends: May 20, 21, and 22; May 27, 28, 29, and 30; and June 3, 4, and 5.
Visiting hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $30.
Proceeds will benefit Housing Works.
