welcome to “sleeping beauty” a room we designed for the 2018 kips bay show house that opened in nyc yesterday. most of you follow me on instagram so you have seen a peek into our room. if you haven’t made your plans to come to the house yet, you must. it’s wonderful.
it’s been a great experience. so many people to thank. first and foremost, the mds team, you all made this happen. all the vendors who so generously work with us and support us- thank you. my fellow designers, each of you inspire. and lastly the kids of kips bay, this is all for you – we celebrate you!
here is a tour and here is the story behind “sleeping beauty.”
A custom hand-painted Gracie scene is the perfect backdrop for this bedroom that features Mark’s new fabric collection with Schumacher. Antiques from James Sansum that once belonged to C.Z. Guest and Bunny Mellon are mixed with 18th century European treasures from Carlton Hobbs. Mark’s room is not only beautiful, it’s comfortable, inviting, the ideal place to rest, to read a book, write a note, or even have a drink.
The room is full of timeless style, glamour and beauty, yet approachable, inviting and comfortable. Delicate Porcelain flowers by Vladimir Kanevsky sit adjacent to modern art by Kit Reuther, Blue and White Ikat’s mingle with chinoiserie, dhurries from England dance with gilt, batiks flirt with bullion’s, and stripes play along the side of layers and layers of trims and embroideries.
Through the years there have been a lot of pretty bedrooms at Kips Bay, but this will be the room that redefines Sleeping Beauty.
