Met Home Showtime Showhouse


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

I am a huge fan of most of the Showtime original shows, so the Metropolitan Home Showhouse Showtime theme is so appealing to me (even a room inspired by by Dexter). The Tribeca tour is running on weekends through October 18, and all of the proceeds from the $20 tickets go to Housing Works.

Whoopsy, the picture above is from last year’s Dexter house, thanks to Maria for clarifying in the comments section! Dexter’s rooms for 2009 are right here. The entire pointclickhome slideshow for this year is here.

Decorated Life is covering each room after her visit. I know I’ll enjoy seeing all the rooms through her blog! Here’s one of her shots of the hospital/pill-themed Nurse Jackie Waiting Room/Lounge:

Blu Dot Catalog and House Tour in Met Home

When the new Blu Dot catalogs come out each year I always try to imagine what sort of spaces they are using for the photo shoots (I am a photo dork). Are they in a studio? Are they in a home? What streets are they in? Oh, and of course, where is the lighting coming from and what sort of photo setup might they be using (ok, a major photo dork). We get a great glimpse of what they had to work with this year with their video outtakes from the shoot, but Antoi spotted even more insight. She noticed the same Son of a Bench catalog scene as what is featured in the home tour in Metropolitan Home’s November issue…

See the before (from the photo shoot):

And the after (in the Metropolitan Home article):

I could totally get sucked in and spend a few hours trying to find more common photos from the catalog and home tour. Gotta work, Ali. Gotta work!

Robbie and Patti Soskin…your home is BEAUTIFUL!
