NYC Design Trip: Day 1

Well, I’m back in New York.  It seems I can’t get enough of this city lately.  This week I’m here studying under the fabulous Steve Nobel with a lovely group of 9 other interior designers from across the country.  Tonight we had a chance to meet, greet, & treat.  We socialized for a bit & met each respective designer & briefly discussed our hometowns & backgrounds.  Then we were off to our treat.  The treat was getting to go to the Christie’s Postwar Contemporary Art Sale.  Let me tell you, this was a treat indeed!  There were 47 lots and they all sold for a pretty penny.  We all sat watching in amazement at the numbers that rolled in on each one of these fabulous works of art.
