Readers, as some of you may remember I have had the honor to meet the ever preppy and wonderful interior designer Eddie Ross through blog land... (he used to be a regular feature on my Eddie Ross at ETSY weekly updates)!
Well readers, now is the chance to jump up and down and show our support for Eddie. You see Eddie Ross has been chosen by Elle Decor to design a window at Bloomingdales. Three designers have been asked to decorate three big windows of the Bloomingdales flagship Manhattan Store.
The designers and their windows are from Apartment Therapy (Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan),
one from Bloomingdales (Eileen Joyce),
and one from Elle Decor (Our very own Eddie Ross).
We then get the honor of voting for the windows we like best.
Habitually Chic, one of the most well connected interior design bloggers in Manhattan, has scored the most fantastic up close and personal pictures of Eddie's window. I love Eddie's use of punchy fabrics, and that bright blue side table lamp, and of course the classic color and design of the furniture leave the room with lots of options!
The designers used furnishings found at Bloomy's. Although I'm not sure what they win for getting the most votes, however I'm sure it's something fabulous (Eddie, if you know would you mind telling us?).
You can drop by Eddie's blog to see he and Jaithan working on the installation for the window.
And of course to vote you can drop by the main page of the Big Window Challenge. You can vote twice a day, once on the website, and once you've registered on the website you can vote via text. Drop in and cast your vote for Eddie.
Eddie Ross is a designer close to my heart. He got a degree from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY (which is where The Preppy Boyfriend got his degree, and for whom he now works). Eddie then went on to work for Martha Stewart, and the Food Network. Eddie then opened his own catering company, and after two years accepted a position as Associate Decorating Editor at House Beautiful. After House Beautiful Eddie went to work as the Senior Style Editor of Martha Stewart Living. He appeared on season two of Bravo's top Design, and now in conjunction with his partner Jaithan runs Eddie Ross, Inc. a lifestyle company.
