Kips Bay Decorator Show House is one of NYC’s spring highlights for interior design. Featuring nationally renowned interior designers, this show house brings to life many of the trends that we at DecoratorsBest have been discussing for the past few months.
Most of this year’s townhouse rooms were small and in poor condition before the designers waved their magic wands! Pushing their creative energies to the max, these ingenious decorators highlighted their talents by creating unique ceiling and wall treatments to conceal cracks and flaws. We particularly enjoyed seeing the myriad of details that give these rooms their extra-special finished and professional look. Check them out:
Color-Blocking & Metallic Influences
Color-blocking, this spring’s big trend, was prevalent in many of the rooms. Metallic influences, particularly in ’70s-inspired coffee tables and lamps, added sheen to the darker rooms.
Layers of luxurious fabrics added warmth and character to several rooms. This look was in direct contrast to many of the other streamlined spaces.
