ROOMS with a VIEW, at Southport Congregational Church in Connecticut is a gathering of top interior designers for charity. Each year 12 incredible designers are invited to create vignettes that are staged in the library and great hall of this historic Gothic Revival church.
We designed the exterior containers for the event to showcase the Home for the Holidays theme. We also created several containers for the indoor tables. Our approach was to use elements from the area, searching the woods and shores to accent the bamboo trees we found nearby with dried flowers, shells and native fruits. For the massive Gothic facade we needed the design to make a statement - not overdone, but very natural. We accented the greens with a sprinkle of white lights.
