Part of the excitement of design is when you come upon a find - that perfect piece you see and know it has such good character that it will inspire the rest of the room’s design.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 27, 2012
Allison Caccoma, of New York City and San Francisco based Caccoma Interiors, is thrilled and honored to be among the designers chosen for the November 2012 showhouse event Rooms With A View. Each year, Rooms With A View -- the brainchild of interior design legend Albert Hadley -- transforms Southport Congregational Church, in Southport, Connecticut, into a dazzling showhouse featuring twelve vignettes designed by prominent interior decorators. This year’s showhouse theme ‘Design On A Shoestring’ is inspired by design legend Albert Hadley’s first magazine editorial entitled ‘Summer On A Shoestring – Before and After’ for Vogue in 1959. With this inspiration, Allison will create a vignette around a petite carved and gilded slipper chair previously owned by Mr. Hadley. As Allison says, “Part of the excitement of design is when you come upon a find - that perfect piece you see and know it has such good character that it will inspire the rest of the room’s design. That’s exactly what Mr. Hadley did. When I recently discovered this chair of his, I knew it was a treasure.” As a protégé of Bunny Williams, who trained under Albert Hadley, Allison continues the Parish Hadley design principles and inspirations but with her own distinctive flair.
Rooms With A View will take place November 1st through the 4th at the Southport Congregational Church in Southport, Connecticut with noted interior designer Thom Filicia as the Honorary Chair. The Preview Party will be held on November 1st with silent and live auctions and a retail boutique.
