North Shore Design Show - "Favorite Spaces"

What to do on a rainy Sunday when all my outdoor gardening has been postponed?  I headed out to the North Shore Design Show at the Wenham Museum in Wenham, MA.  Fourteen interior designers were given an 8' x 8' space and asked to create a favorite space using life in the North Shore, past or present, as their inspiration.  I participated in this show two years ago when we were asked to do a "tablescape".  Our "Black and White Garden Party" is pictured at the top of my blog.  In it's third year, this design show has taken things to a new level with whole rooms being recreated.  Living rooms, dens, sitting rooms and baths...all so inviting you just wanted to sit right down and get comfortable!

Here is a sneak preview...

Finn-Martens Design of Beverly Farms, Ma created a luxurious spa - perfect for pampering yourself after a hard day...or, just because you want to!

Wilson Kelsey Design, Inc got their inspiration from "the ceremony of sharing food".   Sleek and contemporary, this fashionable dining area should be overlooking a view of the city with its nighttime lights twinkling below.

Honey Collins Interior Design mixes the old with the new in this elegant space.  Tones of silver and gray are accenting with just a touch of color.

The room above by Sebastian Carpenter - well, I'll let it tell its own story!  Fun, whimsical and comfortable!

The show runs through May 22nd.  While there, check out the "Pretty in Pink" clothing exhibit - a cotton candy array of clothing from then and now.  And afterward, step across the street to the Wenham Tea House for tea and goodies.  For more details, go to the Wenham Museum website -  Enjoy!
