If visiting charity showhouses could be considered a hobby, then it would be one of mine. We recently visited the Mayfair Showhouse, benefitting The Spring of Tampa Bay. This tudor-style mansion was the site of the 1945 wedding of Florida legislator Sam Gibbons and Martha Hanley.
What a wonderful event for a worthy cause and a chance to showcase some extremely talented designers in Florida.
While strolling through this fabulous home, we came across one of our very own favorite products from Arteriors Home. Take a look at the black Lola side table. Looks absolutely sleek and modern next the traditional side chair.
Most photos to come from the historic home!
I'm so glad wallpaper is back! Just ran across this new wallpaper in Architectural Digest called Mahandi from Carolyn Ray.
The flurry of Ginkgo leaves is fascinating. It is shown in the "pagoda" color, which is a soothing blend of gold, gray and bronze. It is inspired by golden monks' robes and reddish Burmese roads.
I'm already thinking of all the wonderful places it could go. For fun, I picked out some of our fabulous pieces from Tonic Home and placed them against the wallpaper, just to get a feel for how it would look. Take a look below.
How about the Rittenhouse Pendant in a room with this wallpaper? Or the Vivien Mirrored Desk anchored by our pair of Ceramic Foo Dogs? What a refreshingly modern take on a theme that's been around for hundreds of years!

We are getting close to the big day! Can you believe that Tonic Home "brick and mortar" is about to open? The dust is starting to settle and boxes are being unloaded as we speak. We are so excited and can't wait for you to see all of the goodies we have just waiting for your enjoyment.
Mark your calendars for December 1st. We hope to see everyone there.
In the meantime, for those of you who won't be able to get to Ohio, no need to worry. www.tonichome.com is just a click away anytime day or night.
