It seems I was just at Kips Bay Decorator Show House, and here it is again, back in its regular May time slot. I really think the smaller scale of this four-story home is a bonus, because it allowed the designers to use furnishings that attendees might imagine in their own homes (albeit perhaps not from a price perspective).
The dream kitchen and butlers pantry from Bilotta Kitchens is a dramatic mix of traditional and contemporary elements. The creamy cabinetry is beautifully set within copper hues on the walls, marble countertops, fixtures and backsplash tiles. The banquette eating area, where every element is striking, remains so approachable I can imagine a family actually enjoying this kitchen.
From funky spaces like this girl’s bedroom by Harry Heissmann
To more traditional, elegant rooms like this bedroom from Barbara Ostrom
And this divine dining space from Matthew Patrick Smyth
to indescribably hip spaces like the stereo lounge from Brad Ford
the Kips Bay Decorator Show House has plenty of inspiration and eye candy for everyone! If you attended, which was your favorite space?
