This is cool. I have teamed up with Susan Calabria owner of Noli Design and Lead Designer for Scalamandre at this years Old Westbury Gardens Designer Show House. She put together a crazy room along with the entry foyer and stairway and landing which include one painting and four works on paper by myself. I will also be debuting something special!
