Home Decor Ideas share with you the new amazing project by Kips Bay Decorator. After debuting last year, the Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas has opened its doors once again, this year in a stunning Georgian estate in Old Preston Hollow, a section of town regarded for some of the city’s grandest homes and famous residents like Mark Cuban, Roger Staubach, and former president George W. Bush. The show house employed 26 designers from across the country who each conjured imaginative spaces filled with color, texture, and pattern.
In the salon, Michael Aiduss added architecture through newly installed plaster moldings. A 19th-century Chinese screen from Newel pairs with a Jean-Michel Frank sofa, chinoiserie stools from Maison Gerard, a Hervé van der Straeten bronze lantern, large-scale Karl Springer cocktail table, and artworks by Robert Motherwell.
In her “martini muse” area, Dallas designer Traci Connell flipped the floor plan to offer more real estate to a striking bar and turn a back alcove into a secluded bath.
The room’s vibrant color palette was inspired by the family matriarch. “I grew up surrounded by the color pink,” says Amanda. “I love how people look in the color pink, I love how people look in a room that is the color pink—it casts such a beautiful glow.”
Opening with a dreamy work from home office featuring a rug from The Rug Company, furniture by Arteriors, and Visual Comfort lighting, the space contains a glamorous cabinet that opens to reveal a hidden lair.
In a lower-level room with no windows, Yates Desygn’s Bryan and Mike Yates crafted a modern-day speakeasy with a custom suede wallcovering, a cantilevered bar made from Cambria stone, and lighting selected for its similarities to a flapper dress.
“I thought I’d leave the wild to others and do something that looked like it really belonged in the house,” says Bullard.
“This entire idea was to give her a dignified and sophisticated sanctuary,” says the designer, whose career took a unique turn after welcoming a son with Down syndrome. “It’s a very sweet space, but with the art that was chosen I feel like it’s such a fresh, inviting, and fun atmosphere in a room that she can really grow up in.”
“I love modern design but also appreciate traditional, so with this Georgian house, I thought I’d play that up,” says Dallas-based designer Brant McFarlain, who raised the ceiling over the main bath and paneled the perimeter of the room A Jim Thompson Palampore wallcovering and textile paired with a Schumacher wallpaper and MJ Atelier ceiling medallion add to the transportive ambiance of the Morning Room, conceived by Houston designer Dennis Brackeen.
While the custom Versaille pattern parquet flooring nods to tradition, using multiple quartz tables is a more contemporary approach to entertaining. “I really wanted this room to be that spot where antiquity and modernity meet,” he tells Galerie.
For a more feminine take on a study, San Francisco designer Michael Hilal wrapped the space in Benjamin Moore’s High Park, a celadon shade culled from the Dedar drapery. Enhancing his selection of custom furnishings is a gold Roly Poly chair by Faye Toogood, a vintage Herman Miller chest, and Marzio Cecchi lounge chair.
“I wanted to do a red room,” says Alexa Hampton who used a large-scale installation from her new collaboration with Gracie to elevate the bedroom into a sophisticated sanctuary. The designer added a bookcase to balance a double door on the other side of the fireplace with a mantle from her collection with Chesney’s. “I thought that kind of strictness would help relieve the hot, lusty luxury of the red.”
The annual event, which is open this year through October 24, raises funds for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club of New York, which provides education and enrichment programs for children throughout the Bronx.
