PHOTOS! Rooms with a View 2016
| Douglas Graneto Design, LLC |
I wanted to kick off this week with a joyful post – and I didn’t have to look very far to find it. Many of my Connecticut readers know that Rooms with a View is a high-end interior design show created by late Dean of American Design, Albert Hadley and currently chaired by Thom Filicia. Rooms with a View celebrated its 22nd anniversary this past weekend on November 11th-13th at Southport Congregational Church in Southport, CT. Even though it’s over, I’m taking you on a virtual tour of each of the spaces so you can see how gorgeous so many of these rooms were!

For those of you who are not familiar with Rooms with a View, it is a weekend of design inspiration featuring 12 vignettes of interior design. In addition to the vignettes, the event has many individual shops that sell accessories, jewelry, clothing, art work, beauty products, home furnishings and elements – just to name a few. There are also special events such as the Opening Night Gala, a champagne tour and dinner by Paci (one of my favorite restaurants) and Gingerbread House Decorating for children and adults. It is a fun-filled weekend with so much to see and do. If you weren’t able to attend this year, I hope that you’ll plan on attending in 2017. It is the perfect venue for a play date with your girlfriends, lots of pretty rooms, shopping and lunch.
Rooms With a View 2016
Let’s go on a virtual tour. Rooms with a View tasks twelve interior designers with converting a 6′ by 8′ room into a cozy space that depicts this year’s theme, Comfort and Joy. As you look through each of the images, you will quickly see that every room is very different from the next. Today, I’ve included the wide angle views of each of the rooms. I will come back later and update this post with a few photos of some of the details that caught my eye. Enjoy!

Rooms With a View 2015
I’ve attended the event many times as a guest, and this is the second year that I’ve covered the event professionally for my blog. Last year, I split the event into three separate blog posts and I’ve included links to last year’s Rooms with a View below. Last year’s theme was “Home for the Holidays” and you will get some great ideas for dressing up your home this holiday season. Guys, I usually don’t push for you to read previous posts, but, if you have a few more extra minutes they are well worth the time to see the vignettes from last year. The rooms had lots of color, they were all so vibrant – each one looked like a jewel box!
Rooms with a View is a fundraiser that allows Southport Congregational Church to continue its service to the community. For more information, click here to see their Facebook page and mark your calendars to be on the lookout for it in 2017.
