Along with helping Celerie Kemble with flowers for her room for the Kips Bay Decorator Show House, we’re busy designing our own space at the Designer Showhouse of Westchester in Bedford Corners, NY. When Connecticut Cottages & Gardens asked us if we’d turn a basement “craft room” into something floral and fabulous, we immediately thought of a cutting room.
We could just imagine the owner of Nirvana (the $11 million 10,000 square foot home to be transformed by top local decorators) picking flowers in her garden and arranging them in her own private sanctuary.
Fortunately for us, the room is quite easy to work with since it has a black and white floor, white built-in counters and white walls. We’ll be bringing in French flower buckets filled with stems, vases to line the shelves and counters and creating a display of our own bouquets for sale during the showhouse tour.
We’ve even come up with a creative way to cover the flat screen TV (a black eyesore on one of the walls!)… with a large picture window overlooking a peony garden mounted on foam core!
The showhouse benefits Cerebral Palsy of Westchester and will be open to the public from May 8th through June 12th. We do hope you’ll come and visit!
