The Opportunity: Oklahoma City's 2011 Symphony Showhouse Fundraiser for the Philharmonic League
The Structure: Numerous designers submit proposals for the chance to do one room in a glorious estate. If chosen, they work for the cause and are supplied with no materials, but rather work with vendors to have things donated. The home is worked on for a few months, beginning in February, by this network of the city's elite designers then tickets are sold for a month of home tours - May 2011. This year they expect around 10,000 visitors.
The Scary Part: They picked me.
