Elle Decor Modern Life Concept House in NYC...





I was lucky enough to be asked by the UBER-talented designer, GRANT GIBSON, if he could use my art in the  Elle Decor Modern Life Concept House in New York's Chelsea gallery district, where they picked 10 up and coming designers, (paired with vendors), to design a fabulous room. I was super honored, someone I have watched, through the my little blog lens, rise to become one of the A-Listers of Design, in one of the best home decor magazine's in the U.S. And he asked me to do something with him and Elle Decor?!

Obviously I loved Grant Gibson's design, but my other favorites were, Beth Martin's, Sara Story's, and Aurelien Gallet's  rooms....




I cannot believe I can even say the word, "Elle Decor", and my art in the same sentence?







How genius to use Chinese take-out food menu's as wallpaper??


Beth Martin's room was the perfect compliment to Grant's room. I was immediately drawn to the coffee table. It tied everything together with hits of great graphics, and color...















The infamous room above, that was designed by Grant, is iconic in the blog world, and very associated with him and his talent...
What strikes me most about Grant, is that he get's it... He is down to earth enough, that his ego doesn't get in the way. He seems to know how to decorate for a messy family with kids, who still want to be chic, and how to decorate for an older widow on the upper east side, who won't step out of the house in sneakers.
He knows comfort and elegance. I love that.

                                                                    Thank you, Grant!


    

Be sure to check out the June Elle Decor to see some of these gifted designers at this event!
The Modern Concept House is open to the public now for 3 weekends until June 5th,
 so be there, or be square!

My camera broke on the trip, and so these are by the super talented Jamie Beck, from For Me To You, that were taken for the lovely blog Sacramento Street...
Thanks Guys!
