Kips Bay Decorator Show House 2015

43rd annual kips bay decorator show house

This past weekend I toured the 2015 Kips Bay Decorator Show House.  The firm I work for did not have a room this year, but it was nice to pull my head out of the sand for a few hours and check out the fabulous work of fellow designers.  This year’s show house is being held in the Arthur Sachs Mansion (which is all yours for a cool $35 million).  22 designers and architects decked out the sprawling 7 floors of the mansion.  For your viewing pleasure, below is a peek into some of my favorite spaces in this year’s show house.

Weekly Wrap Up: Memorial Day Weekend

Post Title

When I first started this blog, I didn’t really intend to put any personal, “life” information on it.  Now that I’ve gotten rolling I’ve decided that through the occasional “life” blog post I can keep a record of my life and of all of the (mostly) up’s and (a few) down’s I experience living in NYC.  With the complete expectation that the only people interested in these types of posts will be my parents (hopefully?) and my husband (who has no other choice), here I go.  Welcome to my first “weekly wrap up.”

We’ve been traveling like crazy lately so we decided to stay in the city for Memorial Day weekend this year.  We had big plans including Coney Island, Ellis Island, Governor’s Island, and museums (we obviously have no shame in being tourists in our own city), but what we ended up doing was a lot of eating and a lot of veggin’ out in Central Park.  It was perfection and just what we needed.
