Have you heard about the latest sensation to hit Broadway? I’ll Eat You Last starring Bette Midler chronicles the life of Hollywood superagent Sue Mengers (1932-2011). Sue, played by the Divine Miss M, was a legend in her time and represented the biggest names in show business (Barbra Streisand, Faye Dunaway, Burt Reynolds, Ali McGraw, Gene Hackman, Cher, Candice Bergen, Ryan O’Neal, Nick Nolte, Mike Nichols, Gore Vidal, Bob Fosse).

Keep reading for giveaway details.

I'll Eat You Last

I’ll Eat You Last starring Bette Midler is currently playing on Broadway at the Booth Theatre through June 30th! For more information, visit IllEatYouLast.com.

For more than 20 years, Sue Mengers’s clients were the talk of the town, and her dinner parties were the envy of Hollywood. Now for a limited time (best show availability is on Sunday, May 12th and Sunday, June 2nd), audiences are invited into her glamorous Beverly Hills home for an evening of dish, dirty secrets and all the inside showbiz details only Sue can tell.

I’m honored that Scott Pask, the set designer for I’ll Eat You Last, is giving a web-exclusive tour to Design Happens of the Broadway set (where we can see Sue’s home decor and tastes really come to life — she loved white flowers, silver and the National Enquirer). Watch the clip now:

As Scott mentioned, Sue Mengers’s real-life house (pictured below) was designed by a name that may be familiar to some D-Happers — John Elgin Woolf. Woolf (1908-1980) built or renovated homes for many wealthy and famous Los Angeles area residents in the 1950s and 1960s. It was said of him in his obituary that he, “…established a new vocabulary for glamorous movie-star living.”

Update: Congratulations to our winner Christy, who says her spring DIY plans include painting the entry room walls and the front door. Come back on April 5 for another great giveaway!

We all have those DIY projects that don’t go quite according to plan: paint colors that looked so much greener on the chip, cut pieces of wood that are a quarter-inch too small for that coffee table, stencils gone awry.

Vecco Studio offers a DIY alternative to expensive designer rugs: You choose from 13 colorants, various rug sizes and more than 150 stencils to create your own designs. The best part?

Have you checked out the HGTV Green Home yet? I’m in love with the Atlanta-area home’s modern farmhouse vibe. Sure, it has huge windows, an amazing space for outdoor entertaining and a luxurious master suite. Sure, you can enter to win it. But I’m most impressed by the little details that designer Linda Woodrum added to make the house feel like home (okay, and the windows).  Here are some of my favorites.

Green Home Exterior
The amazing details start outdoors with traditional stacked sandstone accents paired with contemporary touches, like stick-straight windows and a cantilevered porch. The rustic-and-modern look continues in the entryway, where Woodrum uses large and small nailheads to create a beautiful grid effect from afar and great texture up close. The artwork nods to the community’s farming roots

Decorative Nailheads
The materials and textures in the home’s modern kitchen create interest, no bold hues needed. The custom countertops are made from seashells, glass and other materials combined with concrete and polished to create a high-gloss shine, and the walls feature an interesting mix of travertine and glass tiles. Floating shelves house earth-toned pottery that’s both stylish and functional.

Bowls on Shelves
How amazing is this sleek-yet-primitive dining table? It’s made from recycled wood pallets, and the varying shades create a subtle graphic accent in this dining room. Lamps created from machine parts reference the home’s location in prime farmland.

HGTV Green Home 2012 Dining Room
The home’s locale also inspired Woodrum’s color choices in the main living area.  This painting pays homage to the area’s great biking trails, and the chartreuse hue adds a young, fresh vibe to the living room. Lots of interesting textures, from the throw pillows to the painted cypress planks on the walls, make the space feel like home. (And it could be your home…so don’t forget to enter twice a day to win it!)
