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.

Orange Crush


I've enjoyed the Kips Bay Decorator Show House coverage.  While it's not in my back yard I couldn't help but weigh in on this particularly happy room.


Joe Nye balanced a great use of color with classic elements and a dash of humor.  You didn't miss the pop bottles, right?  (Or since they are in New York are they soda?)


Just a touch of black, something I think every room needs, and oh, that ceiling.

Only one of the reasons I am yearning for spring in New York.
