Every available space and passage way has been carefully designed and put to great use, such as this Working nook by Joan Gould Dineen of Dineen Architecture and Design
The use of colors are in abundance on the 2nd and 3rd floor of this historic house,
beginning with a warm "Valentine's Day" welcome by James Rixner, in a crisp brown and white scheme with hints of Red...
or Eileen Kathryn Boyd's "Sunday in Repose", in hues of lilacs and greens.
A soothing watercolor wall finish and the use of velvets and fur, make this room extremely happy and inviting.
and with a Happy Turquoise "Easter" welcome, the lovely Jennifer Duneier creates a luxurious reading nook with a comfortable circular love seat fitted with mother of pearl buttons and gold trim...

Hints of dark greens and greys are the hints of "Achieving Independence" in this library created by Thomas Hickey and Edward Yedid of Grade Architecture & Interior Design
while in the browns and pinks there is the "Birthday Celebration - Woman's dressing room" by BiTTT (here picture one of the designers from team Bring it to the Table, Lana Lawrence)
a very sophisticated "New Year's Eve" celebration in Andreea Avram Rusu's room, with an incredible silk rug from Carini Lang taking center stage.
A "Dark & Stormy, Cautionary Tale of Halloween" by Suzanne Eason, introduces a sense of humor with the Hitchock-esque wall covering on the ceilings and a wonderful use of orange within this highly detailed design scheme.
By comparison, this "Winter Solstice" by Aline Matsika (pictured) utilizes to the maximum the great natural light and height of this cool airy room.
and finally a "Chinese New Year" in hot reds and yellows by Inson Wood brings us full circle with a very contemporary play on traditional Asian elements.
There are so many other amazing rooms and designers that made this showhouse so special, and due to space were not able to be featured on these posts...
