Kips Bay: 40th Annual Show House 2012

This year Kip's Bay Boy's & Girls club had some of the most prestigious designers of NYC design two apartments on the upper west side of Manhattan. It was my first show house, and it was an exciting experience. Here are some of the rooms!

'Kidz Rule' Laura Bohn Design Associates

'Sleeping Beauty' by Zoya Bograd

I love the amazing amount of light that comes into this kitchen, which so obviously reflects off of the patent white cabinatry. Though it is very much contemporary, their is a traditional flair added with the gas top oven that resembles an Aga. 
Kitchen by Robert Schwartz & Karen Williams

This room was one of my absolute favorites, and believe me when I say that the photo does it no justice. This room was so elequently executed with its hand embroidered canopy bed, dark laqueres antique furniture, and Moroccan/Asian enthused eclectics. The drapes seemed a little drab and heavy, but none the less it was still stunning!
Master Bedroom: Charlotte Moss

The whole idea of these show rooms is to create an element of fantasy when entering. A space that seems totally unrealistic to live in, but is full of imagination. This room by Charlotte Moss felt like you had just entered the secret garden with its tromp l'oeil wall dressings, and fake vines. It was such a fun space to explore, your eyes were just bouncing off the walls with all the incredible details in this room. 

Davis Scott's Gentlemans Study

This library had a really great art deco vibe to it. Unfortunatly the view is not pictured here, but this room looked over the river at New Jersey so that you could work at your desk and peer out at the wonderful view.
Library by Jamie Drake

This room fit for an artist entusiast was beautifully white washed like an artists canvas, with elements of color through the accessories and amazing wall murals. This room was elegantly executed. 
Le Bureau Prive by Raji Radhakrishnan

Rug by Filicia's collection for Safavieh, and fabrics are from his collection for Kravet.
Gallery by Thom Filicia

This room was another favorite. The aubergine walls against the limey colored green chairs created such a whimsical look, however the absolute best part of this room was the large brass giraffe attached to the wall. Sadly it is not pictured here :(
Dining room by Todd Alexander Romano

This showstopping foyer was the very first room we entered in the first apartment, and it was one to remember. With wallpaper by Schalamandre, this foyer had a very vibrant and fun beginning to the home.
