Mark Your Calendar: Philadelphia Dog Haus

Admittedly, Philadelphia is a little outside of my normal beat, but I couldn't resist posting these dramatic images from the PSPCA Dog Haus, a designer showcase that's taken over a 20-room Victorian mansion in the city's Chestnut Hill area.

This space, dubbed the Drawing Room, is the brainchild of Philadelphia design studio Made on North American (M.O.N.A.). It's all dark glamour mingled with a lush, seductive strangeness. A little goth, a little Steampunk -- in other words, perfect for some pre-Halloween ogling:

(So Leslie, when are you moving in?)

Take the entire Drawing Room photographic tour right here -- and click here for more info on the Dog Haus showcase, which will be open to the public through November 9. All proceeds are earmarked to help abused and neglected animals in the state of Pennsylvania.
