My Ronald McDonald Showhouse favorite picks: part II and the inspiration continues in Long Island



Bunny Williams created a fantasy playroom, 
complete with a tea party, dress up closet to remember a little girl, and oodles of candy!

Part II:  
More of my favorite spaces from
the Ronald McDonald's 
Project Design 2013
hosted by 
Kravet fabrics, Anthony Baratta and 
NYC&G magazine
You may have seen my Friday post on the first installment of my favorites from the Ronald McDonald Designer Showhouse in Hyde Park, Long Island.  If you were unable to attend the event in person, stop by here for highlights.  Today, I will bring you more of my favorites.  The Showhouse is closed to the public after Monday, and will be utilized by families with children being treated at local hospitals for treatment of cancer.  I hope they enjoy these comfortable, inspired spaces and these designed bring them a bit of comfort.  
The Kravet family committed to upgrading the spaces with a unique collaboration with talented and giving designers.  I had the wonderful experience to get this very special sneak peek of these spaces as they were unveiled during a special blogger luncheon at the space.  
More favorites:

Matthew Patrick Smyth's
homage to the Mets

A departure from Matthew's typical high style design, this shows his versatility.  Matthew obviously thought about kids and what is often on their minds.  The Mets are a New York favorite, and he captured that passion with vintage memorabilia straight from websites like Etsy, plus a good amount of sleuthing on his part from Dot and Bo, The Northwest Company and more.  Kudos Matthew -- 
I know this room will make some sports fans very very happy!

A nature-inspired nest by interior designer 
Suzanne Costa  
Suzanne took imagination to its fullest with owl wallpaper, a tree with a swing, custom designed natural wood walls, and complete with a rolling video of every kid's favorite Disney movie, Bambi

Just to name a few of Suzanne's sources:  
Curry & Co., Elegance in Wood, Kravet, Hansgrohe, Ralph Lauren Home
Young Huh's 
Room 211 is colorful and sophisticated! 
Young utilized an eclectic array of sources including Benjamin Moore, The Ruffled Window, Kravet, Circa Lighting, Knoll Studio, and Marimekko to create this gorgeous room.
Utilizing her artistic eye, Young brought a variety treasures together including these pretty red pillows from her travels to Hawaii 
giving her space an exotic flair.
