I was first introduced to interior designer Garrow Kedigian at the 2009 Kips Bay Decorator Show House. His orange lacquered room may have been small but I could already tell he was destined for greatness.  His own charming garret apartment was featured on New York Social Diary House Tour in 2009 but it is his […]

By the time I got down to the English Basement at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House, I was exhausted but I’m glad I didn’t skip it. There are some great rooms down there! The kitchen that was designed by St. Charles of New York, is directly under Juan Montoya’s room and is the same […]

I couldn’t wait to get to talk about some of the larger rooms at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House which include spaces designed by the Juan Montoya, Jamie Drake and Charles Pavarini III. The first room here designed by the handsome and charming Juan Montoya (above) is just calling out for a cocktail party! […]

Maybe instead of separate bathrooms, the key to a happy marriage should be separate bedrooms but only if they look like the ones designed by Charlotte Moss. “Anything but pink in the bedroom,” he said…this was the the inspiration for the The Master Suite designed by Ms. Moss for the Kips Bay Decorator Show House. […]

Even the bathrooms at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House are chic and stylish! I especially loved the “his master bathroom” designed by GunkelmanFlesher. The firm is was founded in Minneapolis and has a design style that runs from traditional to contemporary which means that their work is tailored to each specific space. It’s this […]

Right next to Kathy Abbott’s room at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House is a wonderfully chic sitting room and bedroom by Lichten Craig. I know I sound like a broken record but I really loved this room too! I think the fact that Lichten Craig is an architecture and design firm is the reason […]

I feel like I could say that every room in this year’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House is my favorite but I really did find something to love about all of them! One of the most sophisticated and elegant rooms this year is the library created by interior designer Kathy Abbott. On the surface, it’s […]

The Kips Bay Decorator Show House just announced two special events that I know everyone will be interested in attending! Tuesday, April 21st 3:30 – 4:30pm Albert Hadley Book Signing Design legend Albert Hadley will be signing copies of his books The Story of America’s Preeminent Interior Designer and Albert Hadley: Drawings and Design Process. […]

Some designers don’t even get a room in the Kips Bay Decorator Show House but that doesn’t mean that their spaces weren’t any less spectacular. I wasn’t familiar with interior designer Christopher Corcoran before seeing his work on the landing of the second floor but now I am glad I have become acquainted with his […]

Interior designer Christopher Coleman and fashion designer Angel Sanchez collaborated on a room that is a “fusion art, design and fashion” and a little futuristic too! I only had a chance to briefly meet the designers but according to their marketing the loft was designed as a “lounge space for a stay at home recessionista […]

Now that the weather has turned cold and rainy again, it’s time to get back to my Kips Bay Decorator Show House coverage! The room next to Donald Schermerhorn’s on the 5th floor was designed by Eileen Kathryn Boyd and although it’s very different, it’s equally as beautiful! When I mentioned to Eileen that I […]

The best way to tour the Kips Bay Decorator Show House this year is to take the elevator up to the 5th floor and work your way down. Give yourself plenty of time because there is a lot to see! Everyone I’ve spoken with agrees that it is the best show house in years and […]

The best part of attending the press tour for the 2009 Kips Bay Decorator Show House is that I was able to speak to most of the designers directly and ask them questions. Most of the established interior designers usually take one of the larger rooms in a show house because they can afford to […]

I always think it’s a little weird when an interior designer doesn’t have a website. How is anyone supposed to find them. In William T. Georgis’s case, maybe that is the point. He is very exclusive and usually only works with a select clientele. But these days you can’t afford to be that exclusive which […]

As I mentioned recently, this year’s Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse is a tribute to Albert Hadley and last week the participating designers were announced. Mario Buatta and Charlotte Moss will serve as honorary chairs and in addition, Ms. Moss and team will design a three-room Master Suite. Some of the other designers include Bunny Williams, […]

This has been a busy week and I have lots to write about but until I can post them all, I wanted tell you something exciting that I learned at a very chic dinner party I attended last night. This year’s Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse will be held this Spring on 71st Street and will […]
