Welcome to the 42nd Annual Kips Bay decorator Show House in NYC. Special treat to go inside the Villard Mansion at 457 Madison Ave. right next to the Palace Hotel. Originally designed by Stanford White in 1884 in a Neo-Italian Renaissance style
My take aways from this house were the details:
Let's start with the powder room off the living room by Young Huh
I loved her door treatments
The drapery treatments in the main rooms were fabulous. I loved the idea for the sheer roman shade lit from the top between 2 beautifully constructed panels.
Inlayed steel table design
Juan Montoya's room
Everyone's favorite million dollar decorator Martin Lawrence Bullard in the Foyer - lots of talk about how those panels did not line up under the chair rail.
Modern sculptural tables in the William Georgis room
Beautiful hand painted stripes - looked like Fromental to me but I was corrected.
Loved the embroidery in the middle of the drapery panel.
Cullman & Kravis
These tables were killer!!! and that blue bed….
Absolute favorite room was Carrier and Company. Loved the wallpaper, the mix of styles, use of mirror and color.
Patterns and colors
2nd favorite space was the kitchen - creative details and well crafted.
Matthew Quinn of Design Galleria from the ATL
Look at the stainless doors - custom made with brass details.
Tube pieces as window dressing to mimic the organ pipes at St. Patrick across the street
Mullion details again taken from the church facade
Suede finish on the Silestone. Brass hardware and faucets
Can you see the tubes?
Bulter's pantry in blue again like the DC Designer house.
Beautiful 1stbids vintage french press set
Loved the leather flooring detail in this very small room.
Stairwell hand painted by Robin Sacks
Blue suede walls with fab ceiling treatment. Can you see the hidden door?
That ceiling treatment … WOW!
I had seen Alexa Hampton's room online and didn't love it but in person I found things I really loved..
Detail of the wallpaper
trim on the arm of the sofa - it was big at Highpoint too
Nailheads on the cornice
Daryl Carter's room
daybed floating in the room
What a treat to visit the NYC show house 3 years in a row. I love it! This was only day 1/2 of day 2 in NYC with the Modenus group.
