Over the last couple of weeks we have explored the first four floors of the 2013 Kips Bay Decorator Showcase. Each room of each floor gives a different designer a chance to show off their unique take on styling a room of this grand home in the Upper East Side of New York City. At last we come to the top floor, where we get a peek into two very different design sensibilities.
In one of the fifth floor rooms (Images 3 - 5), Garcia Maldonado delivers a feeling of soft comfort with a nod towards sensuality through the use of artwork, a curvaceous chandelier, and warm colors.
In the bathroom (Images 1 &2), dark colors in shiny textures are nearly impossible for visitors to not reach out and touch.
Meanwhile, in the "Family Lounge" (Images 5 - 9), Eve Robinson Associates, Inc. made use of the high ceilings and access to a peaceful deck overlooking the quiet street. In a room where a family could relax in comfortable, livable style, quirky details were added to bring a bit of humor to the seriously stylish decor. Near the scrabble board with key words spelled out sat a bowl of marshmallows with text of their own printed on the classic snack.
