Spaces & Places 2011 — the frenzy begins

Designer Spaces and Mar­ket Places starts on Sep­tem­ber 23rd, but our spaces need to be fin­ished this week, ahead of the Bet­ter Con­necti­cut TV crew due to film on Fri­day! The frenzy began Mon­day as design­ers and con­trac­tors started to whip their spaces into shape. Just a tiny pre­view here, because your REALLY need to buy a ticket and sup­port the impor­tant mis­sions of two won­der­ful Hart­ford non-profit orga­ni­za­tions — Rebuild­ing Together Hart­ford and The Hart­ford Preser­va­tion Alliance!

The loose theme this year is Inte­rior Inspi­ra­tions from around the world. I chose British Inva­sion and so am fea­tur­ing a mid-century pop mélange with a dash of British Empire. Intrigued?

Here is the space I was assigned, after the old wall­pa­per was removed but before the new paint:

Can't find the acces­sory you need in the color you want? Paint to the rescue!

paint to the rescue!

In need of an accent wall, but haven't found wall­pa­per that com­bines the col­ors you love? Try a sten­cil. Some might think it's 'old school' but with a rockin' retro pat­tern like this, you will shock the nay-sayers! This pic­ture is cell-phone dim. The true col­ors: base coat is Ben­jamin Moore's HC-143 Wyeth Blue and the over­lay color is HC-154 Hale Navy.

And that's all for the pre­view! Stop by on Sep­tem­ber 23rd, 24th or 25th to view the ter­rific spaces from CT's best design­ers. Don't for­get the Pass­port Party on Fri­day Sep­tem­ber 23rd at 6pm. Guar­an­teed fun!
