Mansion In May -The Appetizer Course!

I attended a lovely preview for press and associates of the MIM on Friday. We were able to view the spaces and take photos of the amazing work done by the designers. I thought I would share an appetizer course of some of my favorites. Each photo shows a section of the room I love but you will have either wait or attend the show house to see the rest! I know this is a such a tease, but I did say it was the appetizer course the main course can be seen at MIM starting May 1st. I will be a docent on May 4th in the afternoon, so if you attend don't hesitate to say,"hello"! Enjoy! Tickets HERE!

James Rixner has a camera set up in his space in which you may take a photo of yourself in the Grand Salon!

  4. Oh my goodness! And this is just the appetizer course? I can't believe it. Those pink flowers on the mantel of the amazing fire place in the second shot have me wanting to go out and by armfuls of pink roses, tulips an peonies. Thanks for starting our week of with some pretty! XOXO
