The Big Chill Inspiried Showhouse

One of my favorite TV design personalities is Thom Filicia. Not only because he's entertaining to watch and conveys a general fabulousness for life, but also because I LOVE his work as well. Equal parts masculine and feminine, layered with textures and mixed with interesting accessories.

I've been drooling over this extensive spread on House Beautiful's website of the Showhouse apartment he put together inspired by The Big Chill. One of his best, don't you agree?

Wouldn't you be happy to walk into this entryway everyday...
For all those who love the infamous Miles Reed room that was published in Domino, I contend that this one is just as full of style with a touch of guy-appeal as well. Am I wrong?

Anyone who knows me, knows that I run screaming in the other direction when a horse appears in front of me. But this large wall piece is so beautiful, I think even I could live with it.
How many friends could curl up on those sofas for a wine night?

There are no words for how much I love this rope banister.

Love ya, Thom!


  1. I, unlike you, had never really seen any of Thom's projects that I really loved... until now! That show house is hands-down perfect!! I love every single inch about it. All of the furniture selection is stunning, the colors are perfect, the finishes, the accessories, the lighting.... The rooms contain the best of both masculine and feminine qualities. Simply devine!

  2. Excellent find! That bedroom is astounding, and I agree about the rope banister. I'm not the biggest fan of the eagle table, but I get that's he going for a certain look. The chairs are also quite choice.

  3. I agree that the current Dress My Nest selections are not as fabulous as I've seen in the past, but this was too good to pass up!

  4. Wow, that rope banister is so cool! Love the inventiveness.

  5. go thom. i think i love every room!

  6. This is beautiful. And I love the very functional layout, those facing sofas, those two pairs of wing chairs at opposite ends of the room...I would love to see the looks fabulous, and I'm with you on the rope banister..
