White Webb will design a room at the Granddaddy of them all — the Kips Bay Show House in New York City. Opening this April at Manhattan House, a location quite different from past years, the 2008 Decorator’s Show House is sure to be a stand-out. Rather than the 19th century, gilt-edge townhouses of past years, Manhattan House is a 1960’s white brick apartment building, famous for being an early New York home of Grace Kelly.
With an eye toward paired-down, but exotic style, Matthew White and Frank Webb along with their design team will create a chic, modern bedroom suite. With sculptural antiques and sleek upholstery, the room will be swathed in calming tones of oyster, pewter and gold, blended with silver-leaf and the polish of acrylic. This spa-like bedroom suite will provide visual warmth and creature comforts while appearing to float above the rooftops of the urban landscape.
The Kips Bay Show House is widely considered the national interior design event of the year. Attending it is simple, and by doing so one supports a worthy cause while seeing world-class interiors by the world’s top designers. Click here to purchase tickets. For a peak at our sources, click here.
