Three designers are currently participating in a Apartment Therapy’s Big Window Challenge. The object was to design the most fabulous window for Bloomingdale’s flagship store in Manhattan. My hands-down favorite belongs to the amazing Eddie Ross. His room would be perfect for the modern day Holly Golightly. It was designed for “The Modern Woman” who is at once a media mogul and mother of two.
In describing his vision Eddie says “The signature space shimmers with a mix of classic and modern, new and old, together with a balance of bold patterns and vibrant colors. A spatter-paint print, like stars in an endless sky, reflects the owner’s love of travel to wide-open spaces, and her passion for sparkling evenings at home entertaining friends and family.”
I adore the layered, collected look and feminine color palette along with the magazines and heels tossed on the floor. The room feels very realistic for the modern woman. As always, Eddie manages to include the most amazing vintage accessories to pull everything together.
Eddie is a dear friend and definitely has my vote, but he needs our help because the competition is fierce and it has been a very close race so far. You can vote twice a day everyday until January 28th. Click here to visit the Big Window Challenge homepage to place your vote.
Cynthia Rowley’s home is as feminine, original, and beautiful as her designs. Her awe-inspiring dining room (pictured above) is my favorite room in the house. It looks so ethereal, as if it were straight out of a fairy tale. The gorgeous, metallic wallpaper was designed by Rowley and produced by Flavor Paper. The chairs and banquette are covered in fabric by Cole and Son.

The loveliness of the dining room can only be surpassed by Rowley’s precious daughter, Gigi.
The living room plays host to Rowley’s drawings above the mantel, a zebra print rug, re-upholstered flea market chairs, and a screen with a clover motif reminiscent of Van Cleef and Arpels.
The whimsical master bath hosts a venetian mirror, sleek mosaic tile, and waterproof (naturally) wallpaper of Rowley’s design.
The mid-century chaise lounges in the garden are covered in fabric from Lee Jofa.
