What better way to spend a hot, muggy NYC morning than popping into the Arthur Sachs Mansion to see the 2015 Kips Bay Show House? I made it just in the nick of time, two days before it closed on June 11th. Glorious designers and a landmark mansion = heaven in the city.
The mansion is stunning, as are all of the 25 rooms decorated by a wide variety of talent.
Chic custom settee and pillows in this Bennett Leifer lounge with elegant gilded wallpaper by Degournay.
Mark D. Sikes Interiors created a red and white haven called “Up in the Villa.”
Tilton Fenwick took a small space and transformed it with their own Duralee fabric on the walls and ebony braid by Houles on the trim.
The stair gallery by Phillip Mitchell Design was incredible.
Pavarini Design created a moody midnight blue office with an adjoining bar. Very Mad Men.
Michael Herold’s striped sitting room is adorable.
Thom Filicia designed “A Study in Style” complete with a bar. Am I detecting a theme here?
McMillen Inc. recreated “Rio” in this lush bedroom with Pierre Frey wallpaper inside the glass bookcases. LOVE a wallpapered bookcase!
Black and White Monica Rich Kosann photos of Kips Bay Boys and Girls took up a wall, so cute.
Our own Peter Sinnot of Rye designed a beautiful bathroom on the third floor.
Clive Christian Interiors used Maya Romanoff mother of pearl squares on the bathroom walls. I have never seen that before!
I wanted to move right into the David Pheonix master bedroom….
I fell in love with this red series by Veronique Gambier and the portrait of Marie-Antoinette in “Le Salon Rouge” by Alessandra Branca.
This year the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club celebrates 100 years of helping children. With the support of this beautiful show house, Kips Bay can continue to build futures for more than 10,000 children. Bravo!
