cynthia mason interiors — in the news (again)

Another BIG Thank You to Nancy Schoef­fler for her sup­port of Spaces & Places and her won­der­ful arti­cle in the Hart­ford Courant.   This photo was fea­tured on the front page of the Home and Gar­den sec­tion in print and online Sep­tem­ber 24th!

A spe­cial thanks to pho­tog­ra­pher Stephen Dunn for wait­ing to pho­to­graph my space while I fin­ished up the last touches!

The Spaces & Places event con­cluded yes­ter­day with a nice crowd of vis­i­tors and some seri­ous cama­raderie between par­tic­i­pat­ing design­ers and the won­der­ful vol­un­teers who made it all hap­pen!  As the inau­gural year for this first-of-its-kind event in Hart­ford, there were a few frus­tra­tions along the way, but we are already con­sid­er­ing how to make it even bet­ter next year.

Many thanks to all the vis­i­tors who came to the event in sup­port of Rebuild­ing Together Hart­ford and The Hart­ford Preser­va­tion Alliance. These two great orga­ni­za­tions pulled together the vol­un­teers and spon­sors nec­es­sary to mount not just a beau­ti­ful inte­rior design show­case, but also a ven­dor mar­ket­place and an edu­ca­tional dis­play of some of Hartford's build­ing legacy.

A HUGE shout out to every­one involved, with spe­cial thanks to these folks who really made this event spe­cial for me: the incom­pa­ra­ble Jodie Liddy for her calm, Gabriela Galarza-Block for her eter­nal opti­mism, Richard Ott for his abil­ity to dif­fuse impend­ing diva explo­sions, Sharon McCormick for her gen­er­ous friend­ship, Mar­i­anne Don­ahue for her infla­pa­bil­ity, Cyn­thia Dodd for mak­ing me laugh and Adri­anne Cronk for con­ti­nous emo­tional support.  These tal­ented and fun peo­ple were a joy to share Spaces with. Cheers all!!
