SENSATIONAL DESIGN ON A DIME

Thursday April 21st 2016. 68 degrees 5:45pm

Design on a Dime blasted off this year’s 3-day event with a VIP Opening Night Reception at the Metropolitan Pavilion. After twelve years , Housing Works has established “DOAD” as being a one-of-a-kind charity event that brings together today’s premier interior designers, celebrities, powerhouse companies and trendsetters in support of individuals living with HIV/AIDS.
 
Sensational Interiors from Top Designers!
Nearly 70 interior designers created exclusive vignettes full of donated merchandise from over 425 charitable home décor brands. The results combined sophistication & elegance with whimsy & colorful.  This year’s favorites came from Ford Huniford, Drake Anderson, Ralph Lauren, Ron Marvin, Cathy Hobbs, Yetta Banks, Tyler Wisler, Susan Jameison and Alessandra Branca.
Mix & Procure!
Guests are invited to wander around the Pavilion to admire each of the designer’s rooms, while having the option to shop the merchandise. The furniture, decoratives, art, lighting, books, pillows, throws and all other accents are sold at  50-70 percent off retail pricing. Honestly, it is the best party and shopping experience of the season.
Tunes & Cocktails!
The Pavilion was filled with décor and beautiful people.  The energy continued to rise as fresh cocktails were poured and DJ tunes blasted as if you were clubbing. This is no amateur production (shakin’ my head and finger).  Housing Works has carefully orchestrated a memorable evening for all who attend. You leave exhausted yet revived – visually saturated yet simulated.  There is no other event which gives you so many options for enjoyment.  Those of you with dirty minds – just keep it to yourselves or send me the option via email.

Giving to those in need!
Most importantly, Housing Works hosts the Design on a Dime benefit to support people living and affected by HIV/AIDS. They have dedicated their efforts end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy, the provision of lifesaving services and entrepreneurial businesses.

Thank you Ford Huniford, Andrew Greene, Mel Alvarez, Katherine Oates, Housing Works Team, Elle Decor Team, Benjamin Moore Team,  2016 DOAD Designers and all the others who worked so hard to make this event a success.  Your efforts contributed to an SENSATIONAL EXPERIENCE.
