The Good Work of Housing Works
I heard about the Housing Works fundraiser for years, how much fun it was, how much money it raises.  Well, I finally got to experience it, and it was all that and more!
My press pass allowed me early access to photograph the vignettes, because when the doors open, it is pandemonium.  I imagine it must have been like what the Filene's basement bridal sale was like back in the day.  A horn sounds at 6:30 pm and everything is for sale 50% to 70% off retail prices, with all proceeds going to Housing Works.  Because everything was styled so beautifully, each piece felt elevated and easily helped you really visualize how it could look in your own home.  Everyone rushed to the pieces they had scouted out before hand to grab those tickets and turn them to SOLD!
But before everything was dissembled and disheveled ~
This bold, graphic room easily reads beachy, lake side, or mountain modern:  now's the season.

You could have moved right into this one.  That's what I call a room in a box!

I wanted to say yes to the Donghia cocktail table, but alas, I have no where to put it.  The prices definitely sway you!

Kinda stops you in your tracks; loved the paintings.  It was (or looked like) pink smoke.

I think I screamed a little when I saw this Lindsey Adelman looking lighting.  I did, I did.  She generously gives you directions on her web site and you can recreate it for yourself just like Marc did.

But I spied with my little eye a Danish modern chair with a Tibetan curly lamb seat that was calling my name.  Patrick Hamilton did a beautiful room vignette, each piece strong enough on its own, together it sung.

I positioned myself next to the chair so reaching the tag was easy when the horn blew.  I grabbed my ticket and thriumphedly claimed my prize.  Don't be surprised if you see this little beauty in an upcoming project.

With the purchases out of the way, it was back to the party.
