How to Decorate Your Mansion
If you have a massive mansion (or even a small apartment) and need a designer to give it that certain je ne sais quoi, you're in luck. It's Spring showhouse season, when you can shop for a designer or just discover the latest fine furniture, fabrics, finishes and accessories. Even if you're not planning a major renovation, there are quick decorating ideas galore, and each visit comes with the added bonus of helping a worthy cause.
From Sunday May 8th through Sunday June 12th, in the storybook-sounding town of Bedford Corners, New York, LS decorative accessories will be on display at an elite Spring showcase, the Westchester Designer Showhouse to benefit Cerebral Palsy of Westchester.
We were thrilled when Lara Michelle Feinsod of Lara Michelle Beautiful Interiors in Rye Brook selected several Lazy Susan pieces for her room (above and below). The house itself (top) is quite stately, and we're sure with legendary showhouse organizer Tony Manning at the helm, the interiors will be equally impressive.
Lara is joined by other tip top design talents including Dan Barsanti and Pat Healing of HB Home, Catherine Cleare and Joseph Stabilito. Media sponsor Cottages & Gardens Publications is hosting the Gala Preview on Saturday evening May 7, so to see this house first and enjoy a lovely cocktail with the designers and the editors, do go and get your tickets.
Did you know you can now purchase LS Collections online? You can instantly get the look of Lara's room with Lazy Susan's mod-organic Perforated Porcelain Bud Vases and footed Vintage Root Bowls, Gold Mercury Glass Candleholders with their nostalgic hobnail details and our charming brass Scribble Birds. Have fun visiting Spring showhouses and adding a touch of Spring to your own home, and do send us pictures of the innovative ways you mix LS collections with your favorite things. Who knows, you may inspire our next design!
