Entertaining guru Colin Cowie turned an Upper East Side townhouse into a showcase of decor inspired by beaches from around the world for a benefit for New York League/LifeStart. After walking through a sand-filled first floor, guests found that each of the upper four floors of the townhouse--the former residence of the event's hosts, Wendy Belzberg and Strauss Zelnick--had decor inspired by a different beach area. And each floor had different food, drinks and entertainment, all matched to the floor's theme.

The South Beach, Florida, floor had a cream, beige and white color scheme, with ottomans and other bed-style seating covered in white denim slipcovers. In addition to providing food made by its own chefs (many of them working in closets in the house) Robbins Wolfe also brought in a sushi bar from Oshiso Japanese Catering for this floor.
