Kips Bay Decorator Show House

I was so fortunate to squeeze in a quick tour of the Kips Bay Decorator Show House on our last New York visit. It is the last week to see it, so if you are in the city, do try and take it in. The house is filled with design ideas & inspiration. That is always my drive to want to see it–to be surrounded by room after room of ideas. Each room is created by one of the great minds of design, where they are given the freedom to do as they want. I had the pleasure of meeting Alessandra Branca, one of the designers I admire. We follow each other on Instagram. What an incredibly soulful woman, who created just a beautiful room. Spaces also by Thom Filicia, Tilton Fenwick (who attended my book signing party in New York), and Mark D. Sikes were some of my very favorite. Since 1973 the show house was created as a major fundraiser for the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club. Since I was a young kid interested in design, reading about the Kips Bay house each year was always a source of inspiration–it is such a treat to now see it each May in person for the last few years.
