With Albert Hadley officially retiring and closing his eponymous design firm, attending this year's Rooms with a View Vignettes is a must! Mr. Hadley, referred to as The Dean of American Design, founded the event sixteen years ago, and has served as it's chairman. Honoring his years of dedication and service are Parish Hadley and Albert Hadley alums Pamela Banker, Libby Cameron, Suzanne Earls Carr, David Easton, Thom Filicia, Thomas Jayne, David Kleinberg, Brian McCarthy, Brian Murphy, Nicholas Pentacost, Harry Heismann, Michael Whaley and Bunny Williams. They will transform their 5 x 8 spaces. This fantastic annual event is held at the Southport Congregational Church in my hometown, and draws design enthusiasts from far and near that come to see the creative vignettes and shop in The Marketplace boutiques. Don't miss it.
