Design on a Dime 2017

It was that time again, Design on a Dime puts the FUN in Fundraiser!  Now in its fifth year, it supports those living with HIV and AIDS of New York.  This event gets bigger and better every year! It's an event that is a win/win.  It supports a worthy cause and you can buy fabulous furniture or accessories 70% off.
If you get the opportunity, it should be experienced at least once.

Robin Baron's double booth painted in Benjamin Moore's spiced pumpkin with two Curry and Co. chandeliers and lush layers was HOT.  I loved the photograph of water above the sofa.

I always want to see what James Huniford is up to.  As the creator of this event, he must be awfully proud to see how popular this event has become!  His double booth was a perfect reflection of his aesthetic, and was literally wiped out by the end of the night!

The teak tub was a standout in Preti Lau's globally inspired bath

I had my eye on those faceted mirrors in Decor Aid's booth  ~ until I got distracted

The lighting in Miguel Lewis' space stopped me in my tracks.  After visiting that Richard Neutra home last week ~  I am MAD for all things mid century!

If you follow me on Instagram (and I hope you do) I was just commenting on the punk Buddhas covered in Swarovski crystals by Metis Awashi.  I was excited to see one in person in Sogol Décor's space, but this particular one is not on my wish list.

The black currant walls in Phillip Thomas's space were a great backdrop to the oversized art and fashionable furniture.

A feminine game room brought to you by Brooks Limited caught my attention because of the selection of beautiful chairs, rug and of course the gold!  I went back for one of the brass floor lamps, but alas they were gone.

Foley and Cox's double space was a breath of fresh air.  Oh, am I picturing my future beach house!  I loved everything here; the brown cowhide deco chairs were screaming my name!  It's hard not to get carried away!

Ralph Lauren is always good for classic accessories


Matthew Patrick Smyth has a serious Moroccan moment

Nick Olsen layered several things I could have walked away with, starting with the braided jute rug

My girls at Root Cellar Designs knocked it out of the park once again.  Word was there was literally a war over the rug.  It can get rough!

Since Benjamin Moore was a sponsor, everyone used their Century paints.  It is a new, small batch paint collection, in a 75 color curated palette that has unprecedented richness and texture.

Elyria Grayer's dynamic razzle dazzle walls pop against the blues and grays.

Steven Gambrel turned up the drama when he invited fine artist Marcello Dadolce to paint a model reclining in his room.  The watercolors were for sale as soon as they were completed.  No surprise it proved to be a very  popular!

Phillip Gorrivan's booth was a beautiful melange of styles

Paris K Interior Design had  to "deconstruct" a sofa to fit everything in their space

Elizabeth Swartz for Bunny Williams packed a lot of fabulous punch in her vignette.

Eddie Lee and Tamara Eaton's booth spoke to me in terms of color and merchandise.  If I only had a place to put that marble table.  The bar cart was perfection!!

Welcome to your new home Robert Kuo crystal bowl!

After I grabbed this gorgeous bowl, I walked around to see of there was anything else I "needed," but  the booths were picked clean.  This is better than Filene's Basement bridal sale! ~  My only regret ~  that I don't have more arms   : )
