R McDonald House gets fabulous makeover

The Long Island facility that houses families of children undergoing medical treatment at the nearby Children's Medical Center of New York got worked over by 26 interior designers

"Though this location of the Ronald McDonald House provides free housing to families already ravaged by medical costs, before the designers got their hands on the place the accommodations—think bare, putty-colored walls and generic pastel art—weren't exactly deluxe. Now, though, the house has gone from a ho-hum medical facility to an environment bursting with color, with each room flaunting its own personality. The laundry rooms boast luxurious wallpaper—one even has the moody fish wallpaper spotted in this year's Kips Bay Showhouse—the bedrooms show off elaborate headboards, and the sunroom pops with candy-colored furniture. Other highlights: a playhouse inside Anthony Baratta's sun room, a floral ceiling in the bedroom by Mehditash Design, and rustic wood paneling by Suzanne Costa."
