First Look: Decor By The Shore Show House in DEAL, NJ.
Good Morning everyone!
Last night I got to preview the Decor by The Shore Show House starting today at a cocktail hour press event. Well, cocktail hour makes for a fun party, but some of the photos could be better… (Please-designers- feel free to send me your professional shots of your rooms. I would be happy to replace these!)
The house is a historic mansion built in 1906, and located directly across from the beach in Deal, NJ.
As you enter the house you are met with this coastal chic living room/foyer by William McIntosh:
I love the mix of high low here…. The Stray Dog side table and West Elm Parsons table are a nice mix with the daybed. Also, Love the zebra layered over the couch and in the company of ikat and sisal- who doesnt? And of course, the blue walls.
And I ADORE the large skirted table in the entry.

This room was a crowd pleaser. A woman’s library by Robert Passal… Very chic and sophisticated. Love the black doors! (You know Im a huge fan of that. Painting my doors black took my apt to a whole new level!)
“Bibliotech Feminine ” by Robert Passal
The third floor was window seat heaven!
A dining room:

This next room was also a crowd pleaser. A man’s retreat hang out… very sexy.

A fun game room/hanging area:
Ike Kligerman Barkley Interiors with collaboration with Photographer Irene Mamiye.
Her work is integrated into everything from the artwork, to the table, rug and mirror!
This room was SPECTACULAR! Those tufted walls! That trellis! White on white on white! So chic. THE BED! It was a deeply tufted base but the headboard was made of sticks! Of course it had a view of the ocean.
The most sumptuous teenage bedroom ever:
The canopy is made of hand painted silk by Donghia. Is it not INSANE!?!?! The rug is also handmade, but it looks like tie dye!
Jamie commissioned one of my prints printed onto lucite for the room! (Its for sale you can email me for more information.)
The wallpaper was insane- Hand plastered and then silver leafed. You cant tell but each pieces was raised about 1/4 of an inch off the wall.
I adored this little gardening tool closet:
Marie Tourgamen Organizing & Stacy Ayash Design
A master bedroom:
Stair landing and halls were hand stenciled and had live flowers applied on them.

And last, one of my favorite shops in Brooklyn set up a shop here:
Show house store by Parci Parla
My friends Irene and Rachel actually DIYed the Chandelier and Mirrored subway tile wall!
I LOVE this little side table!
Im including a gallery, you can browse through it to see additional photos:
