the 2018 kips bay show house is about to open and this one is a little more special then past ones because i’m decorating a room. it’s been a wonderful experience and a lot of fun.

I did the dining room back in 2014. not much has changed. brilliant designers get together and create rooms that reflect their style and point of view. everyone is super nice and super supportive of one another. everyone is so thankful for the vendors that help make this all happen. they loan us things, they help us make things, truly, everyone makes this so easy. these are the people that should be celebrated. 

the most important thing about the show house is how it supports and raises money for the kips bay boys & girls club. after you meet these kids, it’s easy to see why every designer and every vendor wants to participate. it makes a difference and on every level, it inspires. 

i will share more about my room called “sleeping beauty” from the show house very soon, but until then here’s a tour of the house provided by architectural digest. i celebrate all of these designers for their talent, most importantly for their hearts. 

the show house open Tuesday May 1st to the public. the opening party is this monday evening. come see it, i know you will love it.
