THE SECRET REVEALED: OUR DESIGN ON A DIME VIGNETTE FOR HOUSINGWORKS

The moment is finally upon us. All we designers that have been begging, borrowing, scrounging, and trying to pull rabbits out of  hats in order to create

a stupendous vignette for the  HOUSING WORKS’ DESIGN ON A DIME charity event, our time is up!  Tonight (Thursday, April 26, 2012) is the moment of truth, and all we can do is keep our fingers crossed that the old Steinbeck adage about the plans of mice and men doesn’t hold true for us.

DESIGN ON A DIME and SHIELDS & COMPANY INTERIORS are once again waltzing together at the Metropolitan Pavillion in NYC (see GET READY, GET SET GO:  DESIGN ON A DIME) in order to help raise money for housing and healthcare for homeless adults and children living with HIV.

 

You may think its easy to do this feat. Oh, no, no, no!!! You need to have the tenacity of a dog with a bone to pull together a stunning venue.

 

OLD FAMILY SECRET RECIPE FOR SUCCESS  at DESIGN ON A DIME:

Call on all of your favorite design sources and beg (in an ever so sweet voice) for furniture, area rugs, accessories, art, a favorite chatchka, etc. … basically anything that you think will help create a display worthy of your style and taste. Don’t worry if everything doesn’t seem to be “going together” in the traditional way. I guarantee you that some miracle will happen when you pull the vignette together… it always does! Think gorgeous! Think WOW! Think dezignlicious!

 

This year we surpassed our wildest dreams with donations that are sure to be super bargains for the lucky ones that purchase them.

Enough from us…you’ll just  have to show up tonight (or Friday or Saturday) to see how we cooked up all the ingredients into a scrumptious dezign soup!

CIAO, CIAO ,TIL NEXT TIME!
