I'm a big fan of Eddie Ross so I just had to follow as he and Jaithan began Day 1 of installation of Bloomingdale's Big Window Challenge!

"Here you can see my design palette with the Hinson print in rich tonal blues, layered with vibrant pops of hot pink, turquoise, Hermes orange and gilded bronze."


"The view from the inside looking out"


"Spatter me Hinson Happy!!"

"Pedestals from David Duncan Antiques"

"Sconces from David Duncan"


"Happy Birthday, @ Shandells and Thank you Phillip Jeffries for the shade,

"No comment"


"Side chairs from my good friend Deborah at Buck House"


"Antique props for the bookcase"


"Checking accessories for safe arrival from David Duncan"

"Emergency pick-up of hot pink silk taffeta for flange on pillow...
