Met Ball Fever!

Were you watching the live feed video on Vogue.com last night of the annual Met Ball red carpet?  We were following the trending #MetBall on twitter and trying to catch as much as we could from our iPhone live streaming video of the celeb packed gala – which celebrates the opening of The Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute spring exhibition, “Impossible Conversations” which explores the connections between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada (check out a preview of the exhibition today on Habitually Chic).

In honor of last night’s celebration of fashion, we wanted to share one of our latest favorite resources for interiors related images: Fashion + Decor, developed by our friend, Gretchen Aubuchon.  Fashion + Decor is a new database of style pairings – where your wardrobe meets your room. Here’s a quick snap of a few of their style pairs – including a Tilton Fenwick designed room (we were honored to be included!)

Wednesday Whine

It’s Wednesday; it’s rainy and we’re whiney. We decided to take this week off from the regularly scheduled blog program. Promise to be back monday, bright eyed and bushy tailed.

Until then, check out two professional photos of our Design on a Dime vignette benefiting Housing Works. Thank you thank you to photographer, Michael Rodenbush, who donated his time and talent and took these shots for us! We’re so proud to be a part of this incredible event, which this year raised $850,000 !!!

Ixxi

ixxi Rijksmuseum flowers published in 101 Woonideeën, March issue

Must check out: Ixxi. Have you seen this?

Ixxi is a “decorative wall system” where a grouping of small cards with printed images combines to create something bigger…and better. In short, the whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts.

Ixxi

Ixxi allows you to choose one of your own photos, which they enlarge and divide into the printed cards which make up the whole.  You can also choose one of their images (they have a collaboration with the Rijksmuseum…not too shabby!).  Or – you can upload lots of images to make a custom collage.  There’s also an option to pixelate your image, which through the use of color creates something beautifully abstract…

(Love this!) Ixxi

Ixxi

Best part is, you can upload your image(s) and order online.  Here’s a video ”Ixxi in One Minute” on exactly how it works. We love!
