Week 1 - Charlotte Moss

“Sitting Room” by Mario Buatta was created as a homage to dogs with its classic dog and animal prints scattered throughout the room.

The 34th annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House, which was set up this year in the 26-room Harkness mansion has always been the place to view an eclectic mix of established and emerging designer’s personal statements. What was clear this time around was that minimalist rooms were placed on the back burner and replaced by bold gestures with a bit of gilt, jewel-toned paint colors, lots of upholstered walls, ethnic fabric prints, and grand chandeliers.

NYSD House had the opportunity to explore many of these transformed spaces.
