This year, the designers of the Baltimore Symphony Associates Decorators' Show House had an unusual problem: getting visitors to take their eyes off the views outside the $3.5 million penthouse on the 23rd floor of Silo Point long enough to look at the rooms inside. Their solutions included adding pops of bright orange, teal and green, and turning old industrial and nautical items into innovative design elements in 20 designed spaces. "The view will always trump, no matter what," says Laura Kimball, a show house veteran who returns this year leading a group of design students from the Community College of Baltimore County.

From a lobby filled with mirrors, marble and mounted country landscapes, an elevator transports guests of Chris and John Hergenroeder to the 28th floor, the couple's penthouse residence in Towson's Ridgely Condominiums. Richly carved mahogany double doors open onto a space filled with mirrors, black marble flooring, white carpets and interior décor reminiscent of a 1930s Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers movie, complete with an Upper East Side Manhattan ambience. While the couple has lived, as they say, "on top of the world" since their marriage 12 years ago, Chris Hergenroeder has actually been a resident of the high-rise since its opening in 1977.

Seton Keough heads into Tuesday's Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference field hockey playoffs as the No. 1 seed, an unfamiliar spot, to say the least. The Gators (16-3-2 overall, 11-0 in conference) won their last championship in 1994 -- before the IAAM was formed. Seven years ago, they were at the bottom of the B Conference standings. Then along came coach Tom Jester, who initially came to the school to help coach the junior varsity in an effort to save the program his daughter was playing in. The rest, as they say, is history as Jester was drafted into the varsity head coaching position six years ago and has worked to improve the team's record every year.

The developer of the Ritz-Carlton Residences said it sold a huge penthouse unit for $12.6 million Wednesday, an important deal for the struggling Inner Harbor project - and one that smashes previous records for Baltimore condo sales. The nearly 12,000-square-foot residence was originally three separate penthouses, combined by developer RXR Realty at the buyer's request. RXR declined to name the purchaser. "It's somebody local and it's a name that you'd recognize," said Mitchell Hochberg, RXR's managing director of residential and hospitality.

NEW YORK -- In a case that pits the freedom of the press against an individual's claim of privacy, a federal judge in Manhattan yesterday ordered Penthouse magazine not to distribute photographs of a woman who has accused President Clinton of sexual harassment.The magazine, which said the January 1995 issue was already on the way to subscribers and retailers, assailed the order by Judge Peter K. Leisure. "It's obviously unconstitutional because it constitutes prior restraint," said Bob Guccione, the owner of Penthouse.

It's people who make the place, not the other way around With a style that borders on the fanciful madness of an Irish Georgian country house and the charm of a French chateau, this exquisitely decorated Scarlett Place penthouse is brimming with treasures. Each detail, from the 300-year-old Chinese silk drapery panels to the dozen or so Rembrandt etchings, is representative of an ever-growing collection of art, textile and antiques belonging to that consummate collector Jimmy Judd and his wife Barbara.

Mayor W. Benjamin Brown."Must be some loyal voter pulling the mayor's leg," Brown said with a chuckle yesterday.Apparently some generous -- and anonymous -- soul bought a one-year subscription and had it sent to Brown."This was not ordered by the mayor," said Brown, who noted he has inquired about canceling the subscription.

BOSTON -- Memo to the travel agent: Don't start booking those wedding packages to Honolulu just yet. The weather on the islands is delightful but the timing is a bit premature.Last Tuesday a Hawaii Circuit Court judge ruled that the state had to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. But he put off the first wedding date for at least a year until the Hawaii Supreme Court hears an appeal.Honolulu may then become the Reno of gay marriages. But no one knows whether a gay couple wed on Maui will still be married when they get to the mainland.

PHILADELPHIA -- The latest edition of Penthouse magazine alleges that Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra illegally bet $5,000 on a college basketball game on March 29, 1990 -- a bet handled by a man described as "the biggest bookmaker in Florida."Dykstra denied yesterday that he had bet on the game. He said baseball commissioner Fay Vincent had investigated the charge and had cleared him of any wrongdoing. Vincent also had assured him that this incident did not represent a violation of the one-year gambling probation imposed upon him in March, Dykstra said.

GrandView, a condominium highrise in the heart of Annapolis Towne Centre, certainly lives up to its name, especially in the 12th-floor penthouse of Barry and Olga Scher. In this three-bedroom, 3½-bath unit with a den, living room, dining room, open kitchen and two balconies, the couple marvels at the views of the Bay Bridge and the sailboats, cruise and cargo ships that pass beneath it daily. Former residents of Washington's Georgetown/Palisades neighborhood, the Schers, tired of climbing the stairs in their four-story home, set about searching the area for the perfect condo, even checking out the Capital's infamous Watergate complex.

The condos at the Ritz-Carlton Residences offer "luxurious waterfront living" — with breathtaking views of Baltimore's Inner Harbor and amenities that include marble baths, landscaped terraces and butler's pantries with access for the help. But that's not enough for one resident. An architect has been talking to city officials about permits that might be needed to build a gun range in one of the penthouse-level condos on Key Highway, at the foot of Federal Hill. Inquiries about the gun range were meant to be hush-hush, but word about the unusual request got out quickly.

If the Minnesota Twins' clubhouse were any looser, the walls would cave in and the ceiling would crash to the floor. In a typical scene played out at Camden Yards last week, infielder Denny Hocking squats beside one of the sofas and imitates catcher A.J. Pierzynski falling forward while trying to make a throw, as if his shoelaces are tied together. First baseman David Ortiz laughs so hard, the sound echoes to the warehouse and brings another round of mimicking from a few of his teammates.

A tipster who'd just gone to see Sicko sent me an invitation that Concentra Medical Centers mailed out to "Maryland VIPs." The invite notes that the company has helped businesses and municipalities across Maryland slash workers' comp and other health care costs. How'd they do it? Apparently not by skimping on dinner parties. Concentra has held a dinner for "Maryland government, business and civic leaders" at Ocean City's Galaxy Restaurant for years, in conjunction with the annual Maryland Association of Counties conference.

To put it gently, HarborView's developer and the coalition of community groups challenging his right to build penthouses atop his latest waterfront project don't agree on much. Certainly not much that came up during yesterday's seven-plus-hour hearing on - tediously - what exactly is allowed on top of the roofs of the Pier Homes at HarborView, pricey real estate under construction along the South Baltimore waterfront. At the heart of the disagreement is HarborView developer Richard A. Swirnow's contention that city law allows penthouses with enclosed stairways and elevators on top of the 58 feet permitted for the homes.
