Designed for Heroes

The Designer Showhouse for Heroes, held this past fall in Saddle River, gave designers a chance to work their magic as well as raise funds for Heroes to Heroes Foundation, an organization providing support for veterans. The designs were sophisticated and refined, infused with a subtle sense of fun. Farrow & Ball provided the paint for the show house. Our coverage begins in this issue and will continue in our June/July Color Issue. For information on the Heroes to Heroes Foundation, heroestoheroes.org.
