Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse – Part One

by habituallychic

04 . 24 . 08
The annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House in New York starts today, Thursday, April 24th and runs through May 22nd. This year, not only is the “house” 2 blocks from my apartment, but it’s also not really a house. I was under the assumption that the Show Houses were always in a townhouse but that’s not the case this year since it’s taken over six apartments in a huge condo building at 200 East 66th Street.

I will be visiting the Show House this weekend and will post some photos early next week but until then, I thought it would be fun to revisit last year’s Show House. I will also add designer credits later when I have more time! Until then, enjoy a look back at 2007 and get ready for 2008!

    My 9 yr old daughter and I are taking the train up from DC to go to the show May 2nd – she’s so excited (well, me too). Looking forward to checking back on your blog to see what you thought.

    Magnolia Wedding Planner, the photos I posted are from the 2007 Show House. I can’t wait to see the 2008 version. I’m sure it’s going to spectacular!

    loving that long, stem-like light fixture in the 3rd to last photo! if you find out any info on it, please let me know!

    have fun at the showhouse- i LOVE show house’s because since the designers have basically unlimited choices, it brings out their best- and their worst!
