Kips Bay Showhouse 2017

kips-bay-decorator-showhouse-2016-01Among the highlights of Spring is the Kips Bay Decorator Show House in NYC. What began in 1973 as a means of supporting the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club has turned into a highly anticipated designer show house, drawing from top talent across the country. One of the names that I am most excited to see is Ken Fulk, who will surely give us not just a decorated room, but an experience.

Weekend Wrap Up

2016-05-10_0017Waiting on Martha, One Room Challenge

May is in full swing! It has been a very busy, fun week and today I’m heading up to the Hudson Valley to see my friend, Ted Kennedy Watson, at his East Coast home and will be swinging through Trade Secrets, the Bunny Williams created garden show in northern Connecticut. Decor is front and center with the recent finale of the One Room Challenge, a 6 week interior design challenge, featuring 20 bloggers, hosted by Linda of Calling Home. The reveals have been nothing short of spectacular, so I encourage you to visit each of the participants to see how they took one room and transformed it!

I’m always impressed with Mandy Kellogg Rye of Waiting on Marthaas her style is always clean but cool, stylish without ever being stuffy….fun with a flourish!

orc graphic orcPaige Minear, of The Pink Clutch,  made such a incredible transition of her wood paneled living room that I’m still trying to take in all the impact. If you love color…this room is for you! Leopard + loads of color = fabulous!sueMy friend, Sue, of The Zhush, did the most amazing laundry room makeover! I love my laundry room, but Sue took it up a notch!! That wallpaper!!

Kips Bay just opened, so plan your visit now!

Join me at Nest Inspired Home next Friday, May 20th from 1-5pm to meet Seattle artist, Jeanne McKay Hartmann! 

Before you know it, we’ll be prepping for Memorial Day Weekend and the unofficial kickoff to summer. Make the most of May…it’s almost half way over.
