We joined Architectural Digest Editor in Chief Margaret Russell at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House for the Kickoff of Blogfest2012. We had the best time meeting most of the room designers as well as blogger friends. It was a wonderful way to start the event. If you have the chance to visit the Kips Bay Showhouse this year, I highly recommend it! I was able to capture some amazing kips bay showhouse 2012 images. I loved the Study by Brian del Toro. Everything from the paneled walls and the blue and emerald green jewel tones, to the Japanese panel topped coffee table blended together perfectly.
The sunny Family Room by James Rixner is cheerful and delightful, youthful and sophisticated. I am loving the abstract art in blues against the silver lamp and lime colored walls and accent pillows.
I took notice of the amazing abstract art choices each designer picked as in the study by David Scott Interiors.
And the highlight of the evening for me was meeting the incredibly glamorous and talented Margaret Russell. What a treat!
About the History of Kips Bay
Every year, celebrated interior designers transform a luxury Manhattan home into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art, and technology. The event began in 1973 when several dedicated women’s committee members of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club launched the Decorator Show House to raise funds for much needed after school and enrichment programs for New York City children. Over the course of four decades, this project has raised in excess of $17 million and grown into a “must destination” for thousands of design enthusiasts and is recognized for launching interior design trends throughout the world. Today, the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club is one of the most prominent and responsive youth development agencies in New York City and a “flagship” of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The Show House will be open on Memorial Day 11am to 5pm
