Housing Works Design on a Dime

For the last 4 years, I have been lucky enough to attend Housing Works' Design on a Dime event. It is hands down one of my most favorite events in the interior design community and I am already getting excited to see what amazing things the designers will create this year!  I'm posting a recap of previous years here so you can get an idea of the fantastic vignettes and designers you won't want to miss!

Please follow the following links for more information and to also purchase your own tickets for this years event.  You don't want to miss this one :)

Hull Street is a from-the-ground-up housing development project that will transform a vacant 6,000 sq ft. lot, into a beautiful and safe home for 26 single, formerly homeless adults living with HIV/AIDS.
