We love the idea of the House of Design, a fundraiser to support the O.C. Philharmonic Society’s music education programs for kids. Local designers each get a room to transform, and supporters buy tickets to see the work. But a few times in the past, the whole has been less than its parts, with some fab rooms and others, well… not so much. But this year, the Crystal Cove manse given over for the cause was pretty much stunning throughout; we collected cards from almost all of the designers at the opening party on a chilly Newport night.
