House Beautiful, O at Home, Town&Country and Veranda invite you to an Open House weekend
Join your favorite magazines for one weekend only at this special event that will benefit Worldwide Orphans Foundation. Order your tickets today for your chance to experience these well-appointed interiors each designed by a noted interior designer.
House Beautiful, O at Home, Town&Country, and Veranda, have each designed a residence at The Laurel, a new 31-story glass and Indiana limestone, LEED-certified residential tower with 129 luxury residences, located on Manhattans Upper East Side.
Each apartment has been designed with an imagined resident in mind:
Susan Ferrier McAlpine Booth & Ferrier Interiors for House Beautiful: an urban roost with a couple from Atlanta in mind, this calming space features soothing color with versatile functionality.
Darryl Carter for O at Home: a spare yet well-appointed home for a couple of cultured and worldly empty nesters, who wished to blend their appreciation of modern architecture with a taste for traditional furnishings.
Stephen Miller Siegel for Town&Country: a home for a woman who has just sold her loft downtown and is starting a new chapter in life. Cultured and well-traveled, she's made the apartment, with its cosmopolitan flair and warmth, a reflection of her many facets.
Charlotte Moss for Veranda: an idyllic sanctuary for the scion on an Italian marble family and his wife, a documentary filmmaker. The apartment, a home of contrasts, blends the historicism of the Italian countryside with the 21st century.
Each of these apartments will be featured in an upcoming issue. Look for the Charlotte Moss apartment in the November/December 2008 issue of Veranda, the Darryl Carter apartment in the Winter 2008 issue of O at Home, the Susan Ferrier for McAlpine Booth & Ferrier Interiors in the January 2009 issue of House Beautiful and the Stephen Miller Siegel apartment in the January 2009 issue of Town&Country.

About Worldwide Orphans Foundation:
Worldwide Orphans Foundations unique vision and mission is, "To transform the lives of orphaned children around the world by taking them out of anonymity and helping them to become healthy, independent, productive members of their communities and the world."
Today, WWO programs are addressing the needs of the most vulnerable children in Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Ethiopia, Kenya, Serbia and Vietnam. WWO was the first to introduce professional peer training in Vietnam and Ethiopia for pediatric HIV/AIDS treatment and was also the first to treat (and continues to treat) orphans with HIV/AIDS in both countries.
One-to-One Developmental Intervention Programs in Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, and Vietnam match retirees from surrounding communities with orphans in local institutions. The grannies or aunties as they are affectionately known, work under the direction of psychologists on a one-to-one basis with a child five hours a day, five days a week. Occupational, physical, and speech therapists train orphanage staff in the principles of therapy, increasing childrens development to the best of their abilities. At present there are six such programs in Bulgaria, two in Azerbaijan and two in Vietnam.
