new orleans auction event

Hey guys - I don't know if you all are still here since I haven't posted in so long. I hope you are!

So I told you about the New Orleans Auction event in the last post and I hope some of you are planning to attend. Auctions are so much fun! Six designers (including moi) were asked to arrange the auction items into vignettes so people could see them set up in a way that would look like a cohesive room. We were not allowed to bring in other furniture items - we just had to use auction items. So the resulting spaces are not truly indicative of our personal styles - but nonetheless I am proud of my Captain's Bedroom! I think if you changed the rug out for a boldly striped dhurrie, and put modern graphic monogrammed bedding on the bed, perhaps a red lacquer chest or lamp, you would have a great bedroom. I especially love the antique ship that I hung as a chandelier, and I really do love old ancestor portraits in modern houses.

So if you are in the area this Thursday evening from 5pm-7pm is the preview evening, and the auction will be all day on Saturday with nibbles and champagne at 10am.

See you there!
