 A Fresh Coat - New York School of Interior Design Dog House Competition
Last night the New York Metro Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) hosted a Dog House Design Competition at the  New York School of Interior Design to benefit the Southhampton Animal Shelter. The designers, all members of ASID, donated their time, money and materials to these lavish canine domiciles so that the five winning homes could be auctioned off for the worthy cause.

The room was buzzing with socialites, students and designers ‘oohing’ and ‘ahhing’ over the intricate creations and plush materials while adorable and frantic guest pooches itched to curl up in the luxurious nests just out of their paw’s reach.

Celebrity judge appearances certainly turned some heads! Cosmetics entrepreneur Prince Lorenzo Bhorgese and the 9th season star of the Bachelor and socialite/actress Tinsley Mortimer forgot to cheese for their close up.

Pools to Drool Over!

July 7, 2012 § Leave a comment

Wow! It’s getting hot out there and all I can think about is jumping into a nice, cold pool. It inspired me to search for some dreamy homes with pools that I would love to splash around in all day!

The house below is currently for sale in Laguna Beach, CA, and was decorated by Shelley Starr. The home itself is gorgeous but my favorite part is the pool that overlooks the ocean. Check out the view from the kitchen, too (and don’t you love those barstools?!)!

Arch Daily posted images of a home in Hout Bay, Cape Town, South Africa, that I want to move into immediately! Metropolis Design did an amazing job on this project!

For $29,995,000 you could take a dip in this infinity pool that overlooks the entire LA basin and then relax in one of the many rooms in your 15,000 square-foot home. OK, you might have missed your change though since this Bel-Air home was recently sold but I was so happy to find this listing from Hilton & Hyland to swoon over at least!

While I may not have a home like this in DC, I would like to check out the Liaison pool at the Affinia Hotel in Capitol Hill. Day passes are $20 starting at 10am and there’s even a bar that offers light food and cool cocktails to keep you refreshed all day!
