Kips Bay Showhouse 2010:The Drama is in the Details

Filed under: Interior Design, Uncategorized, Wall Decoration, design trends — Tags: , , — michaeldelicio @ 8:31 PM

This year’s Kips Bay Showhouse, (to benefit The Kips Bay Boy’s and Girl’s Club), was filled with big, grand design. But what turned my head, was the exquisite attention to detail found in almost all of the beautifully appointed rooms.

Here are a few shots from my visit there, of Delicate and Dramatic Design Details I just couldn’t resist.

In this room titled “Room for a Daydream”, Elizabeth Pyne for McMillen Plus, started with a small focal point, and built on that.  Inspired by a treasured childhood portrait of her grandmother, the rest of the design unfurled.

Darren Henault. Why settle for plain, when you can have fancy!

A brilliant new wallpaper product developed by Brett
Design, allows you to add a clear design layer over your own painted finish. The possibilities are endless! This lacy floral can lend a feminine touch. The walls of the Lounge in the showhouse executed by Brett Design, are done in a clear snake overlay. Very sexy!

Here’s a drapery detail I’ve never seen before. Inset jewel toned glass stones with embroidery detail on the leading edge of an otherwise understated window treatment, in this beautifully detailed  dining room by Cullman & Kravis. So fabulous!

A vignette from this truly glamorous Hollywood inspired  boudoir by The Jeffrey Design Group, proves that Accessories Matter! And perhaps also, that minimalism Is a Drag!
