Show Stopper


Part of the fun of last week was seeing a preview of the Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse.  There are many, many lovely rooms, but one of the ones that rocked me back on my heels was Amanda Nisbet's room which featured walls adorned with her Positano silk in the Kumquat colorway.*  Pow.   If you are in the city do make time to see the showhouse; it's a home run.

*I remembered this wrong.  Nisbet used Pink Lemonade (I must block out pink.)  You can see the house here at the New York Times if you're not over your limit.

Love it. I won't be able to go to the showhouse so I looked at the pictures on the NYT website. The Celerie Kemble room looks great, too.

Thank you so much for your great review! We are so glad you love the Positsno Silk! The color in the Kips Bay Decorator show house is actually a new one called "pink lemonade" and is a hot pink (although I love the kumquat!). The AND line can be found at Holland and Sherry Showrooms. Love your blog and thanks again for sharing our fabric!

Best, Avery from Amanda Nisbet Design
