MORRISTOWN, NJ - The Women’s Association of Morristown Medical Center announced the winners of its Mansion in May 2014 Tulip Award.
Creative Wallcoverings and Interiors, Ltd. of New Providence and the landscape team from Back to Nature Home and Garden of Oldwick and BLDG 39 of Pottersville were recognized with Mansion in May’s highest honor as selected by visitors who cast ballots for their favorite interior and exterior spaces at the end of their tours
“All of our interior and landscape designers have done a spectacular job. We are so grateful for their participation in this year’s Mansion in May. Each one of them brought their A-game and worked long hours to make this mansion such a success,” said Prudence Pigott, co-chair of Mansion in May 2014.
According to interior space Tulip Award winners, Rachel Kapner, Lois Darling, Mary La Vecchia and Virginia Liberato of Creative Wallcoverings and Interiors, the design for “Deco In Bloom” was inspired by American Art Deco design. By taking the roots of the past and planting current objects, the design team created a bedroom with all the characteristics of linear glamour broken up by curved ornamental elements. This bedroom is “a symbol of growth in a design which has been awakened in 2014,” with shades of pink in bloom.
“We are so pleased to have been selected for our second Tulip Award,” said Rachel Kapner. “Blairsden is such an inspirational home that it made it easy for us to create a glamorous, yet understated space.”
The 17th Mansion in May at Blairsden is a 62,000-square-foot mansion, Louis XIV Chateau-style mansion that has been hailed as one of the finest examples of Beaux-arts architecture in the United States. It sits atop a mile-long private drive in Peapack-Gladstone.
Mansion in May attracts more than 25,000 visitors to the event, typically held every other year. As a fundraiser for Morristown Medical Center, the event is known for presenting the area’s most unique and historic mansions, restored through the work of top interior and landscape designers.
Mansion in May 2014 at Blairsden will be open every day until May 31. Tickets may be purchased online and at the door at $50. Proceeds will benefit two causes at Morristown Medical Center’s Goryeb Children’s Hospital: an expanded Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and a new Autism and Child Development Center.
