Last Thursday night, there was a wonderful Party for the Big Window Challenge at Bloomingdale’s New York City store. A lively competition, between Eddie Ross for Elle Decor, Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan of Apartment Therapy and Eileen Joyce for Bloomingdale’s. If you did not get a chance to read about it, take a couple of minutes and see all three fabulous windows. The detail that went into these windows was amazing. Each of the competitors made you feel like you wanted to sit down and enjoy their creations.
Eddie had asked me to make some lampshades for him, I was thrilled. I was able to make these shades from gold leaf wallpaper, the glow is incredible. A thank you to Phillip Jeffries for the wallpaper.
As I was walking down Lexington Avenue to go to this party, I was greeted by Eddie & Jaithan in front of their window.
As a true New Yorker (I was born in NYC), my heart pounded with excitement to see my lampshades and lamps in this magnificent window. Thank you Eddie for including me.
I got to meet some wonderful people that evening, Margaret Russell from Elle Decor, Maxwell & Sara Kate from Apartment Therapy and Mrs. Blandings.
Let’s hope that the Groundhog was incorrect and spring arrives sooner.
