It was fun and exciting to come upon a true find. Mr. Hadley’s chair was the perfect piece to inspire the entire design.

Allison Caccoma, the interior design principal of Caccoma Interiors, and a protégé of famed interior designer Bunny Williams, was honored to be among the designers participating in the November 2012 Southport, CT showhouse event, Rooms With a View. The 18th annual charitable design event, conceived by interior design icon Albert Hadley, transformed the Southport Congregational Church hall, in Southport, Connecticut, into a dazzling showhouse that featured twelve miniature rooms by prominent interior designers trained in the Parish Hadley design lexicon.
The theme of Design on a Shoestring inspired Allison to create a vignette around a gilded Louis XVI chair previously own by Albert Hadley. As Allison says “ It was fun and exciting to come upon a true find. Mr. Hadley’s chair was the perfect piece to inspire the entire design.” Design touches that nod to Mr. Hadley, such as an abstract stencil of his iconic sunburst mirror hand painted on the walls paired with a black and white faux bois floor design, lent just the crispness he would have loved. The space was classically modern with the right hint of whimsy and edited simplicity allowing Allison’s creativity to shine through in homage to Mr. Hadley’s true spirit.
Allison’s room and the showcase generated numerous blog and press mentions including a feature on the popular interior design blog Quintessence. Noted interior designer Thom Filicia served as the Honorary Chair for this years design showcase.
