“In all of our projects”, says interior designer Timothy Corrigan, “we strive to create spaces that are comfortably elegant: where people feel that they are someplace special, while simultaneously feeling completely at ease. To that end, outdoor fabrics were used on the upholstered seating, along with a stain-resistant hide rug, to live up to the demands of an active family. The soft color palate and elements of nature create a light, bright haven that counterbalances life in an urban setting. The result is a calmer and more joyful way of living.”

Timothy Corrigan‘s room in this year’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House in New York occupies the second floor “Family Room” space and the lovely green color scheme was inspired by the green trees blooming outside the window.

Setting the stage for “Spring Fever” is Benjamin Moore’s Timid White, Lily Pad, and Stolen Moments, expertly applied on the wood-paneled walls by Fiocchi Group. The Shade Store crafted beautiful drapery using two shades of Chateau Damask, from the Timothy Corrigan collection for Schumacher.

Philip & Kelvin Laverne’s abstract textured bronze and glass Wave Crest coffee table is from Donzella.

A pair of custom banquettes flanking the fireplace was built by Fiocchi Group and upholstered by Anthony Lawrence-Belfair in Kravet Versailles velvet and adorned with pillows in Pierre Frey’s Livia, Scalamandre’s Perrault, and Brunschwig and Fils Rivoli. All trims throughout are by Samuel & Sons.

There was a small window with bars on this wall and another on the other wall that faced a brick wall so they were covered with the fabric panels.

An antique Dutch Delft tulipiere painted with mythical scenes from Perim Lang Antiques rests on a Quatrain-Fournir Roman-style pedestal table from Philip Stites. The hand-carved gilt wood flowers were created by Tony Duquette.

Other notable design elements in the room include Stephen Antonson’s surreal plaster wall sculptures.

The Glacial Motion oil painting is by Tom Goldenberg.

A pair of T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings side tables from Timothy Corrigan Antiques sit on a hide rug from the Timothy Corrigan collection for Kyle Bunting. A pair of table lamps from Aesthetic Décor and Circa Lighting sconces with custom shades from Reborn Antiques illuminate the room.

Perennials fabric on the sofa, reupholstered by Mike’s Custom Upholstery, is topped with pillows in Fortuny and Scalamandre fabrics.

David Duncan’s bamboo “Folly” chandelier is anchored by plaster ceiling snake sculptures.

A pair of custom lounge chairs in Hedgerow Trellis from the Timothy Corrigan for Schumacher collection, reupholstered by Emiliano & Associates, flank the Hourglass Table by Bunny Williams Home. 

The cashmere throw is from the Timothy Corrigan Collection for Dea Luxury Linens.

All trims throughout the room are by Samuel & Sons.

Accessories from Dennis & Leen and Formations dot the room.

Trees from Blondie’s Treehouse complement the serene garden-themed “Spring Fever” room.

Flemish botanical illustrations inspired the playful motif of Timothy Corrigan for Fromental’s Spring Fever wallpaper.
