2018 KIPS BAY SHOWHOUSE

2018 KIPS BAY SHOWHOUSE

I came to NYC specifically to visit the showroom and to go to the KIPS BAY SHOWHOUSE which was fabulous this year! It is rare for a showcase house to look coherent and this one somehow managed to do just that. All of the rooms referred to each other in a really wonderful way.  Here are my favorite rooms in no particular order:

 

 WESLEY MOON's butlers pantry was amazing considering the space he had to work with .  As usual with Wesley's work, the colors and elements created an elegant work room for serving the residents. I have to say - if i were the butler here I'd be thrilled to work in such an environment.  wesleymoon.com

 I loved Juan Montoya's room very much.. i ended here in the basement and felt as tho... this is where I would spend all of my time having meetings and hiding out from the family. GORGEOUS, Understated elegance.  JuanMontoyaDesign
