Wednesday night was SO fun. Samsung is hosting a showhouse on West Broadway and Broome here in New York and they invited me to swing by for a cocktail party to see and report on their new appliances, and also to meet up with the designer of the show house, Hilary Farr, from HGTV's Love It or List It. (geek out!)
(Hilary is the queen of cool - how could she not be with that beautiful accent!? And me, well, this is my signature "straight from the airport" hair and "just finishing an awkward joke" smile)
Check out what a beautiful job Hilary and her team did with the giant show house. They miraculously turned a cold white box of a retail space into a modern, fresh, homey space.
There was some serious moulding action happening and I was inspired.
At the beginning of the evening Hilary talked about how investing in pretty appliances makes it easier to live in more open-concept spaces. Plus, seriously, who wouldn't want to do more household chores when your kitchen and laundry rooms are sleek and modern?
Also, that oven? They invented this sort of slide in shield called a Smart Divider that makes this a double oven! Like, you can operate it at two different temperatures above and below the shield! I thought that was so smart.
This four door has a built-in sparkling water dispenser!! What the what!? Also, it makes up to 10 pounds of ice a day. I'm a beverage-lover and a party-thrower, so this fridge was absolutely whispering my name.
Also just under the french door sits this genius drawer that's perfectly sized and placed for kid snacks.
But beyond the beautiful look, this fridge has some serious technology to back it up. You can reconfigure each side of the bottom doors. So if you want two sides to be at freezer temp, or if you want to use the space to chill beverages for a party, or if you have a big family and you want all four compartments to be fridge space, you can change the settings on the digital screen in about five seconds flat.
