The 43rd annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House opens today and runs through June 11th. Yesterday I was scheduled to attend Press Day but the tragic Amtrak accident prevented travel up to NYC from here in DC. My friend Jennifer, of DC by Design, attended on Tuesday and she posted wonderful sneak peeks on her blog today.
The beautiful living room above (designed by Mariette Himes Gomez with photography by Timothy Bell) isn't from the current show house but part of the amazing compendium 40 Years of Fabulous Kips Bay Decorator Show House: The Kips Bay Decorator Show House by Steven Stolman. The book is divided into sections (The Traditionalists, Modernists, Showmen, Classicists, Exquisites, Provocateurs, Newcombers, and Legends) so there's something for everyone in this look-back at the best of Kips Bay!
