On Tuesday I had the pleasure of attending CA Home+Design's press breakfast for the unveiling of their first ever showhouse . As a designer who LOVES challenging small spaces, I couldn't wait to see what my colleagues at the Small Space Big Style showhouse had done.
Immediately when I walked in , I was smiling ear to ear! These 8 designers hit this out of the park! What these designers did to compensate for the small space was brilliant ! For example..... My friend Christian May of Maison21 used an incredible BOLD graphic wallpaper he created with talented Tracy Hiner of Black Crows Studio. By the way, this "Memphis" wallpaper is now available.
The living room design by Christopher Kennedy is Fun and colorful ! Christopher used paint to create huge supergraphics on the wall in bold earthy tones with pops of Fuchsia. He even carried the mossy green stripe up and across the ceiling, creating balance with the high ceilings.
The Kitchen Design by Azadeh Shladovsky was simple and classic. I loved the unexpected large brass wall sconce above the kitchen sink. She took full advantage of the height and took cabinetry all the way up the high ceiling , which is appreciated from the loft on the second floor.
You'll have to check out the Showhouse for yourself .....to see the rest of the rooms by Molly Luetkemeyer, Potted, and Erinn Valencich. You'll be in for treat ! They are open September 14- November 18. For ticket info click here.
