KNOW THIS COULD BE CONSIDERED BLASPHEMY. BUT I'M NOT MUCH OF A SHOWHOUSE FAN. THEY ALWAYS SEEM ARTIFICIAL TO ME, AND MOST ARE TOO TRADITIONAL FOR MY TASTES. THERE ARE CERTAINLY EXCEPTIONS, LIKE THE LAST KIPS BAY (THE GRANDDADDY OF THEM ALL), WHICH WAS EXUBERANTLY DRAMATIC AND QUITE MODERN.

III [989 and 199t, Mrl: HOnl<! did two showhou~s

in NewYork Ciey benefieing Design Industries Foundation Flght.ingAIDS (DIFFA.), They wese major undertakings and ev~yone Ollstrn fmduding rue) was. involved. The moms. were amazi n g and

truly innovaeive, designed by everyone from Mario Buaua.john Saladino, Michael Graves and Rober, A<M. Seern to Tom Wolfe, David Hcckney, Wolfgang Puck and Alice Waters. But it was a lot of sometimesfrnsnanng work. So when we scarred calking about doing one in Los Angeles almost tWO years ago, I was excieed bur-a bie dubious about' how ie wculd all work long distance. And at first 1;- didn't work: We waited tOr countless months tOr;1 house whose reno v :!tiOI1 was never-ending and when it finally fell.rbrocgh, searched forever fur the next perfect place. Sound familiar? It'W:lS jusr Iike real-life house bunring,

Like most real-life SCE;JlarlOS, our saga ended well Ou.r Modern by DEsign house opened to- the public for a month this _pas! spring. Ie was a huge success, generating significant income for ProjecrAngel Food and the UCLAAIDS Institute, Thanks to a generous homeowner and designer, Xonn Balbes, and his ream; Tom Langevin, all amazing prcjece mallag_eri and the besr designers in L.A. (see page 133), it-was the srnoorhest transformation I've ever wimessed-,

and so rrmch fun'

A sbowbouse, of course, is really a dream-, different from a "civilian's" renovating and decorating. For example, I gOt ro Ch00509 not one but nine designers. Budger wasnt really my problem, Nor was

most of rhe d:1y-to-d;lY g~ner~ COll1;TaCtor bU5:in,,",~. And the designers didn't have a clienr dicraring or fosslng.just me, who only asked that their rooms be ~Ml!t. HIjI1l11 modem" and .include ideas visitors and readers could take horne.

fter the first flurry of StOryboards, all was quiet". Months passed, Magasine articles were planned, assigned and pnnced.

I crossed my fingers and prayed Ev~ryone would

be finished by photo d~a.d1in...,jOPeJullgJlig.hr, I called occasionally. trying to sound cool. And, dream come rrce.Ir was done on schedule. The landscapers were still working while we ~vere:s.ho()tmg (you can see che aeeivity cocside, behind me). But the interiors were picrure-perfecr. I could have moved in, and so could everyone else who came ehrongh. Each rocmwas magical; there 'W:l.SJ1.'t one I dldrrr love. The sa-d part was walking our Mid Imow"illg IX would only Live on in these pagoBS

'When I Started my business," Marvin says.

"I needed an office more rhan I needed a dresser." Out went the bureau that occupied

a bulletin board, Each person's needs differ, he points out', noting that a fnend whenever cooks or enrerrains ar home ccnverred her entire apartment uno "one big luxurious hotel room-sand for her, clue works!"

The contents of the now-absent dresser were dispersed behind the sofa, tinder ehe bed and into the hall closer. W'hat remained was rigorously ,,;,dired. "I had to p:tr'" down to rhe things I. needed. ~ Among me classic forms of these necessary items are a I950S buffet ($55 ar a secondhand SlOM) and a comforrable sob, purchased with pink crusbed-velvec uphnl:S.tery (he replaced .it with whire Jearher]

Marvin treated the existing kitchen cabinetry L(l a makeover. He removed the doors, covering the back of nne cabinet with a mirror, and fashioned new doors for the facing cabinet from wood-framed mirrors . Mirrors, he explains, enhance the illosicn of roominess, "1 like using mirrors. a

lot," he admits. UIt doesn't mean you'rensrclssistic lI.ecessMi1y. If helps you expand space, ~ There's also a mirrored ceihng in me; tmuy hall and framed mirrors behind the buff€t and bed.
