For his Designer Visions Showhouse in the Soho Mews, interior designer Richard Mishaan chose Dinner at Eight as his inspiration. The movie revolves around the preparation for a dinner party for a group wealthy and soon to be unwealthy men and women during the Great Depression. You practically need an org chart to keep up with who's involved with whom which includes a very glamorous Jean Harlow whose bedroom in the film influenced the showhouse bedroom. There are a lot of glamorous touches of shine and gold throughout the space that harken back to the 1930's. You can see more of the showhouse in the December 2009 issue of Town & Country magazine and at Designer Visions online. Lloyd Boston will also host a behind the scenes special about the Designer Visions showhouses on the Fine Living Network on January 26, 2010. Enjoy!
