One of the perks of attending Kravet’s BlogFest, is that we get to tour the prestigious Kips Bay Decorator Show House. This year is the 41st anniversary of the Kips Bay Decorator Show House, which supports the Boys and Girls Club, “The Positive Place for Kids”. The show house provides year-round services to over 12,000 children.
This year the Kips Bay Decorator Show House is in a beautiful townhouse located in the opulent neighborhood of the Upper East Side. There were a total of 19 talented designers who participated in the show house. People from around the country flock to see this prestigious show home, and this year they we were not disappointed!
Let’s start with the Foyer and Powder Room designed by Andrew Suvalsky, of Andrew Suvalsky Designs. This room is bold, modern, with an elegant flair. The uses of the vibrant blue and red tones are bold and truly make a statement!
The Powder Room painted in a turquoise with a high glass lacquer finish pops beautifully against the black mirrors on the walls. Walking into this room, you will say “WOW”! High drama in this modern and elegant powder room.
The kitchen was designed by Christopher Peacock, of Christopher Peacock Cabinetry. This kitchen is beautifully designed with professional grade appliances and the perfect place for a family to gather. Also, there is an area for the dogs! We cannot forget our favorite furry family members.
Moving into the Atrium, designed by Huniford Design Studio, you walk into a stunning two-story room. Designed with a contemporary loft feel. With many books on display, you get the feeling that the designer envisioned this as a place where the homeowners would cozy up on the sofa or chair and divulge oneself in a novel.
The Roy Orbison artwork was such a fun touch!
You can see the Garden through the Atrium, and what a coveted space indeed! As we all know, New York City home gardens are hard to come by, and Nievera Williams has done a beautiful job in the landscape design–clean and simplistic. The perfect place to sit with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, depending on the time of day, and just relax while listening to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.
This concludes the first floor tour of the Kips Bay Show House, but look forward to more posts finishing up my tour of the show home.
