Elle Decor Modern Life Concept House

Continuing with the tour of Blogfest, we were able to visit the Elle Decor Modern Life Concept House.  They have partnered with Housing Works to continue the support of their mission of ending homelessness and AIDS. This New York condo features 10 designers who transform these spaces in creative ways for big city living.

Yes, NY was fab, but it was also a lot of work lugging around a big camera and getting the perfect shot (move it people!)

This master bedroom (below) was transformed by Marie Turner. I was able to meet her in person, and her outfit was as lovely as her space.

Aren’t the candle sconces gorgeous!

And who couldn’t use a little greenery in The Big Apple?
