1. Sarah Bartholomew's A Room of Her Own showed a restrained, beautiful design. From the gorgeous black fireplace from Chesneys, to the textured mirror from Cox London to the fluted walls- we loved it all and certainly could lounge here all day!
2. Charlotte Moss almost always keeps us on our design toes. This year is no different with her colorful, layered designs in a lavender palette, and the gorgeous Pauline de Rothschild bronze four poster bed anchoring the bedroom. She even offers her own "Kips Bay 2019 playlist" on Spotify!
3. Christopher Peacock's attention to detail in this kitchen is truly awe-inspiring. I particularly loved the painted cabinetry with the incredibly gorgeous brass hardware. With Cambria counters and an oversized Monogram oven it is truly a state-of-the-art kitchen.
4. Corey Damen Jenkins' library shows beautiful and detailed upholstery, drapery and a unique colorful palette with touches of Art Deco designs throughout. The mirror from Mirror Image Home was smartly chosen as to not compete with the incredible architecture in the space. The classic leather-top desk from Theodore Alexander and the floral ceiling are both my favorite touches.
5. Robert Passal teamed up with Daniel Kahan Architecture to create a glamorous, yet calm respite salon channeling a Parisian lifestyle from the 1920s. From the sophisticated Art Deco chandelier from Newel gallery to the blush colored sofa and the Stephen Pace painting from the 1960s, we are smitten.
