The Glen Cove Showhouse.

On Tuesday I drove up to the Glen Cove “Home is where the Heart is” show house on Long Island to benefit American Heart Association, and toured the house with the folks from Kravet. I’ll take any excuse to get out of the city! I think I’ve been to every corner of the tristate area in the past month. I love show houses, it’s so fun to see what designers do when there is no client and its just a blank slate. While Kips Bay usually brings out the cooky in everyone, the show houses in the ‘burbs are way more restrained and livable, but beautiful none the less. Gotta appeal to the local clientele I guess? I took some photos around the house and I’m sharing a few of my favorites. (If I DIDNT post a room, it’s probably because I hated the pictures I took of it, not because I didn’t like it. It’s hard to get good photos at these things with people walking around, plus I was using my Fuji… so the photos are always a toss up on that thing.)
