Continuing the coverage of the Kips Bay Decorator Show House from yesterday with more rooms from the amazing designers that participated this year - all in support of a great cause. The Kips Bay Boys&Girls club helps bring joy to so many children every year, and has raised millions of dollars for this very cause over the course of the 40+ years.
Beginning today's coverage with the "Bamboo" Room designed by Sara Story, using her own design by the same name wallpaper as the overall unifying pattern against dark trims and black and white checkered flooring by FLOR.

The freshly designed wall sconce, adds another layer of geometric play upon the graphic patterned wall, and yet the art, and playful accessories are carefree and whimsical in their application which leaves the room all together with a very lighthearted feeling.
Strong literary messages abound,
within the on trend black and white palette in the bathroom
& a fantastical purple ombre custom vanity
adds the much needed pop of color and break from the checkerboard effect
Steven Mooney returned this private study to it's desired state of greatness, as you can see by the "before" shot - it was in a bit of a state when he was given the space.
Using the soft and feminine Scalamandre wallpapers and fabric throughout the scheme, he was able to transform this private study into "la petite writing room" that any woman would covet.
Stark carpeting underfoot, a Jansen Directoire Style Bookshelf by Jean Karajian Gallery and an antique Louis XVI Table Desk by Newel antiques tie it all together.
Lastly Robert Brown, who I wrote about after meeting with him at Kravet in the D&D designed one of the last (or first rooms) of the house .. transforming the old quarters for the existing live-in help, into a private entry lounge.
