Chic in NY: Housing Works Design on a Dime

There are a lot of wonderful events coming up in the next few weeks but the first I want to remind you about is Housing Works annual event Design on a Dime. More than 40 fabulous designers, stores and vendors have created rooms and donated products where everything is up for sale to benefit Housing Works. My friends from Flair (that’s their room from last year above) have already told me that their room this year will be “quite something!” Kristen McGinnis had some wonderful pieces donated for her room this year including a rug from The Rug Company and wallpaper from Farrow & Ball. I bought a great cachepot from Charlotte Moss last year and can’t wait to see what she’s got for sale this year! You can see the entire list of those participating online. You can attend the opening night event this Thursday for $150 which gives you first dibs on all the best wares or you can attend the free public days Friday and Saturday. I’ll be at Thursday night’s event with all my wonderful designer friends and I look forward to shopping up a storm! See you there!
