Peek inside the Annual Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse
Take a look into the six-story, 17 room Decorator Showhouse, which recently opened in New York. Every year a group of incredibly talented designers are selected to create amazing spaces under one roof, all for a great cause to support the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. I'm loving the entrance (right below) designed by Katie Ridder...would LOVE to have a red front door one day! And I'm definitely noticing a lot of wallpaper and detailed wall treatments going on in almost every space - something I adore. The black lacquered ceiling in the second to last photo is gorgeous, as are the nailhead studded grass cloth covered walls - I die! Have any of you had the pleasure of actually visiting the showhouse in person? Do tell! Click here or here to see more.
P.S. Gilt Home will be updating their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/GiltHome) with photos and videos as the Kips Bay rooms come together from designers such as Vicente Wolf, 2Michaels and Jennifer Post. Then, on November 4, they’ll sell those furnishings at an exclusive Gilt Home sale. Gilt Home fans on Facebook can enter to win a two-hour consultation with one of the featured Kips Bay interior designers and a $1,000 credit to shop at Gilt Home! To enter, simply visit http://on.fb.me/KBContest and register for this unique opportunity. Good luck!
