The Designer Showhouse of Westchester - Part 3

In the heart of Scarsdale, one stately home has been transformed by 20 leading interior designers in this year's Third Annual Designer Showhouse of Westchester, which benefits "Cerebral Palsy of Westchester".

The magnificent 1915 mansion on 2 Cooper Road in Scarsdale, New York is a must for anyone that adores Design, and my coverage continues today with many more rooms by several very talented designers.

Elissa Grayer transforms a basement into a great family room, with Bar, Pool table and fireplace. Great mirrors on the windows add a great detail to the light and reflection in the space, with whimsical art and wallcoverings on the fireplace and throughout are clever and elegant in their selection.

The lovely Donna Benedetto welcomed us into her Upper Floor Games Room, in crisp cool white and gray tones.. 

Custom bookcases, a bar cart, textured and elaborate art work including that of her own creation - a mixed media piece encrusted with semiprecious stones.. and a glass "ping-pong" table that make for a very "grown up" and sophisticated games room. No kids allowed!

Debra Funt made use of two patterned wall coverings in this Bedroom in the most unexpected way, and to much success!
Truly brought in the flowers and foliage from the windows with use of the fabrics and nature inspired wallpaper from Romo, as well as new fabrics from their collections as well!

Leslie Dunn and Ann Tighe transform this private home office space, using texture and warm tones and my favorite Noir bookcases.

More of this showhouse to feature on the blog tomorrow, but in the meantime, (and especially with this weather) what better way to spend your day then visiting this showhouse in the heart of Scarsdale?
In case you missed Part 1, head over there now. and Part 2.
