will be sharing these pix in two posts, and in no particular order- don't want to play favorites, as so many of the designers are friends and acquaintances!
|Thomas Hamel (Australia) – Portugal at Therien. ok, right off the bat we are starting with a lie- we said we weren't going to play favorites, but this window really blew us away. 12 foot totemic macrame owl woven of rope? you win, thomas! (ps- later in the week, i had the opportunity to sit down for a drink with thomas, and not only is he talented, he is charming and self-effacing to boot. loved him).|
|2nd view- just really, really cool.|
|“Paris,” at Compas, by Joan Behnke|
|Heidi Bonesteel, Michele Trout and Jill Hall – Berlin at Mecox|
|Nate Berkus – Mexico City at Hollywood at Home II|
the walls are tissue paper flowers.
|Brooke and Steven Giannetti – Paris Flea Market at George Smith north window |
teh mintue i saw this one, without knowing which window she had been assigned, i knew this was my friend brooke's (velvet & linen) window by the lovely weathered and layered 'patina style' she and steve are known for. do you think patina farm will look like this window? i do!
|Velvet & Linen again- love the addition of a miniature fruiting peach tree. brooke & steve didn't miss a beat with this one.|
|Betsy Burnham – Quogue, NY at Fuller & Roberts. click here for cute video of the installation. love betsy.|
|Alissa Sutton at Dragonette Ltd., south window (photo by alissa sutton)|
|David Hicks (Australia) – Australia at Downtown, north window. once again, i had the pleasure of meeting david in person at legends, and not only is david talented, he is a super nice guy (+ hysterically funny). is it something in australian water?|
|Rachel Winokur –Magical Journeys- Off the Wall. rachel was an even later addition than me to teh legends line up and so more props to her for doing such a great job under a tight deadline.|
|Nickey Kehoe – Icelandic Dreamscape at George Smith (south)|
|Michelle Nussbaumer (Ceylon et Cie)– French Congo at Dragonette Ltd.|
