There’s been a lot of buzz this week about the upcoming Rooms With A View 2011.
This year’s theme is “The Next Generation” with a tribute to Albert Hadley, the “Dean of American Design”. Mr. Hadley has contributed enormously to the American design aesthetic, most notably through his work at McMillen Inc. and his partnership with Sister Parish in their firm, Parish-Hadley Associates.
Part of this “next generation” is my friend, Sam Allen! As the youngest designer invited to participate, Sam has dreamed up a delicious cold weather escape with a nod to the Old Hollywood – Brentwood pool cabana. Enveloped in navy and white striped Ralph Lauren fabric and tricked out with all the amenities, I think someone might want to transport this to their Florida vacation home!
Thanks to Sam, you’re getting a preview, as the event opens to the public on Friday! To read more about Sam’s inspiration, check out this recent post by Quintessence.
Better yet, you can see Sam’s vignette, along with those of other talented young designers at the Southport Congregational church in Southport, CT this Friday, Nov 4 – Sun, Nov 6.
Given the weather here lately, I’d trade my view for a poolside cabana view anytime! Umbrella drink, anyone?

I hope you do "Rooms with a view" one year….I could just imagine what a pretty little vignette you would create.

This is soo well done, he is really talented. I saw it over at Stacys blog and it looks like such a fun activity. May have to call on a friend and do a day trip..looks so worth it! Love the navy and white…..

Adore Sam's style, need to get my hands on some of those towels! I agree with PVE's comment %110! (we still don not have power. freaking. out.)
How adorable is he?! Love his cabana design! So crisp and clean. Makes me want to spend the day poolside! xo

Oh, love it!! Especially since it is raining here in Nashville right now! Happy Thursday! Caroline
Love this sneak preview. Can't wait to meet Sam tonight and see the cabana in person!! Thanks for the mention.
Love Sam's style and been a fan! And he loves embroidered items too.
The Buzz Blog says
If Sam joins us for a drink in the cabana, I won't care what weather we have this weekend! So cute (the room that is…) 😉
THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE says
I just love his vignette!!! That would be a dream view, wouldn't it? 🙂 xoxo
This looks amazing! Your blog is lovely by the way 🙂
Sam's little space just makes me happy!!! I want to see more!

I wish I was closer to CT. but thanks for the preview of Sam Allen's space…I have a feeling it would have been my favorite anyway! It doesn’t get much better then RL fabric and blue and white! xx
