Last week I had an incredible experience with Sanders at Party Tables discussing my design for Veneralia 2013. Above is a snap from our meeting I posted on Instagram.
You know when you pitch an idea to someone and they instantly get it?
They get so excited that they take your vision and run with it. You can see the light in their eyes as the scene plays out in their head. It was like that with Sanders and I.
But before I get ahead of myself, let me fill you in on the event.
On Saturday, the Michael C. Carlos Museum will host Veneralia: Experiencing Art in Architecture their yearly fundraising gala. Acclaimed architect Michael Graves is this year’s honoree for his contribution as museum’s architect.
The top floor of the museum will be transformed by four interior designers. Each of us will design our gallery space with inspiration from one of the four collections currently on exhibit.
My choice was sub-Sahara Africa.
With this theme I decided on take the patrons on a vintage safari. The installation process today.
My space is the smallest of the four, but will be big on drama. Here’s a peek at my inspiration for the space.
Have you ever heard the term, glamping? Apparently it’s not as commonplace in The States as it is in Europe. A hybrid of the words glamorous and camping, glamping is just what you think it is…a luxurious experience in the great outdoors.
For those of you who aren’t the outdoorsy type, perhaps these images will sway you just a little.
I threw the last photo in for emphasis on the safari camp experience. Unfortunately/Fortunately, I won’t be drawing anyone a bath at the gala. But there is a promise of a drummer and yards of draping linens and candlelight!
