A Show House the NYC Way!

Another trip to NYC this week to visit the Kips Bay Show House. This show house is always a treat.  It showcases the top designers in NYC and the Northeast. 

This year it is a townhouse while last year it was an apartment. 

Gomez and Associates  - Living Room

The artwork in the hallway was incredible. The designer was Judy King. 

 The hallway was unusual  - drapery pattern with the hide rug pattern - very bold. This was Andrew Suvalsky. 

                                                              The hide rug

                                                       The sitting room off the hallway

                                           More lacquer in the powder room - 

          Loved the artwork - I think this is the same artist as the teen room in the DC show house. 

The dining room was done by one of my favorite designers - Kristen McGinnis

Love the lacquer walls, Maya Romanoff ceiling

The chandelier was super cool ...... Check out the deconstructed buffet, a knock out! 

I loved the bar and the small back room too by Dineen Architecture. This halogram artwork  was wind. I loved the details on the bar. 

Another lacquered ceiling - love that drapery fabric. I ordered a memo as soon as I was back in the office. 

Cool sketchy wallpaper

Vintage lights

 The James Huniford sunroom - he has a new furniture line coming out. I can't wait to view that collection. 

My fellow Fine Paint brother - Christopher Peacock's Kitchen. 

The second floor had this beautiful sitting room - great artwork, suede block walls, vintage light fixture, deep daybed, and pops of orange. Even a curtain detail that I loved. 

The 2 outdoor balconies were minimal and clean. Loved the grass wall and the koi pond by WCA Architects. 

A complete departure in the house for the Kathryn Ireland bedroom. I love her new ad for Scalamandre - she's a hoot! I thought you needed at least another traditional designer for another room to complement this style but just my option. 

A pretty gold and white room on top by Barbara Ostrom  

A modern Eve Robinson TV room - lavender lacquer ceiling. Loved the pendants! 

And let's not forget the fish room by Jack Levy

Until next year .....

                                                        Happy Travels ..........
