The Kips Bay Designer Showhouse Dramatic Magnolia Garden Foyer Entryway Ideas by Lauren Rottet Studio

Lauren Rottet’s entry at this year’s inaugural Kips Bay Dallas Showhouse is
envisioned as a cleansing experience and a respite from the urban outdoors. The Entry Foyer is the heart of
the home. It mirrors the verdant hues found in nature while emphasizing a dramatic use of color juxtaposed with
cutting-edge furnishings in varying styles.

Rottet’s plan encompasses a living Southern garden drama, with custom hide rugs from Kyle Bunting portraying magnolia petals and a
tiered chandelier by Fisher Weisman.

Rottet’s own Fascio sconces for Visual Comfort add sparkle while forecasting the garden-scape below.

Classic Blue & White Formal Luxurious Living Room Ideas in Kips Bay Dallas by Mark Sikes

Dubbed “Casa Fiorentina,” the beautiful layered pattern blue & white formal living room in Kips Bay Dallas is
simply stunning. Interior designer Mark D. Sikes envisioned a beautiful living room inspired by the iconic La

A magnificent custom wallpaper by Aksel Decorative Arts creates the perfect backdrop: a decadent yet airy blue and white
tile motif that engulfs the space with a worldly elegance.

Layered within is a mix of Italian and Portuguese antiques from John Nelson Antiques and pieces from Mark’s own new
collection with Chaddock Home, upholstered in
Schumacher fabrics and accented with Samuel &
Sons trim.

Hanging lanterns from Paul Ferrante punctuate the space. A special debut collaboration with Christopher Spitzmiller also
makes an appearance, reinterpreting wicker onto a porcelain vessel.

Kips Bay Dallas Showhouse

The Viviano Family Room is a large but intimate space situated beyond the Breakfast and Keeping Rooms.

In collaboration with the extraordinary C2 Art
, special thanks to Desireé
McClain Gallery, and Hiram Butler Gallery, the art collection has been
curated to connect with the subconscious and the inner child.

The Colorful Utopia Loft by Sherry Hayslip Features Amazing Teen Room Ideas

The loft is a place to chat with friends, unwind, play games, enjoy an after-dinner drink, or sit and look at the clouds
and let your mind wander. If true wealth is health and time, space isn’t far behind, and this area is the perfect bonus
to the house.

Many other generous vendors and sponsors partnered with Sherry Hayslip, including ArteriorsBenjamin
CambriaDan LamEdelman Leather, Garden Gate, Jeanne
Sanders, Joan Winter, Kravet, Perennials, Phillip Jefferies, Rebecca Carter, Sabina Fay BraxtonStallings Art Services, and The Rug Company.

Back Staircase Design & Downstairs Landing by Melissa MorganM

The Back Staircase and Downstairs Landing, named Emerald Garden, is designed by Melissa Morgan of M Interiors in San
Antonio, Texas. Morgan’s design seeks to serve as more than an area of transition but rather a tranquility and

Morgan says, “I aimed to elevate this space and make it a celebrated destination that can serve as the heart of the home
and have meaning, rather than merely connect one to other spaces in the house.”

Daughters Room Ideas by Kips Bay Dallas Decorator Showhouse by Michelle Nussbaumer

We like to say Dallas designers do it
best! Michelle Nussbaumer’s latest Kips Bay Designer Showhouse room was dubbed the Turkish Writer’s Lair.
nspired by a 19th Century English traveler, Nussbaumer’s daughter’s room design may have been in the
latest Kips
Bay Designer Showhouse
 in Interior
Decorator Dallas
, TX. Still, it definitely reminded us of a traveler that lived in Turkey and Morocco. Michelle Nussbaumer created a dream blue
& white classic private oasis on the upstairs of the house. Keep scrolling to see some of our favorite parts of
her Dallas interior design firms.

Nussbaumer used multiple layered patterns and textures throughout. See her new Michelle Nussbaumer by Paul Montgomery wallpaper created an exotic lair pattern below. For those who follow our blog
weekly, you know we LOVE incorporating custom wallpapers and custom finished wall treatments in projects.

In the case of this daughter’s room, we love that Michelle Nussbaumer used one of our favorite art vendors who does a
great job with reproductions when clients aren’t looking to spend a fortune on art. Great job, Wendover Artwork! The art
looks old, but it’s actually reproduction art perfectly finished and framed.

Fabrics and trims by Clarence House were
beautiful on the custom Michelle Nussbaumer Bodrum Daybed, which mimicked the shape of the entry doorway. Keep scrolling
to see what I mean.

Michelle Nussbaumer used beautiful, gorgeous accessories from Ceylon et Cie for this daughter’s room.

When ordering custom closets, be sure to add built-in custom LED strip lighting to light each shelf properly. While LED
strip lighting can be costly, adding it to kitchen shelves, master closets, or other high-use areas can make a big
difference in the organizational process.

Create a dramatic curtained entryway to rooms.

There’s no better way to stay organized in closets than using hooks.

Use countertop overlays such as marble or incorporate removable trays to place your favorite perfumes and other items
that could damage your furniture tops.

In this bathroom, Michelle Nussbaumer did a great job of simply painting the cabinets black and adding really nice
decorative hardware.

Navy Blue Gossip Girl Lounge, Powder Room & Vestibule Ideas by Traci Zeller from Kips Bay Showhouse 2020 –
Dallas Decorators Showhouse

Inspired by the proverb, “Words have no wings, yet they can fly a thousand miles,” Traci Zeller designed the Kip’s Bay
Showhouse as the Gossip Room and Powder Room.

Several ladies slip away for champagne, primping, and girl talk as the party carries on elsewhere. The birds and
butterflies scattered artfully throughout the rooms are poised to take flight along with whispered rumors.

The scalloped banquette, skirted sink, and upholstered walls are feminine and graceful; white lacquered walls and
original art keep the overall look modern.

Downstairs Guest Bedroom Decor Ideas & Sitting Room Ideas by Dina Bandman

This gracious guest bedroom was located on the lower floor. Conceived by California interior designer Dina Bandman as a mini-retreat for overnight
visitors to escape their daily surroundings and be indulged with classic, elegant luxury was the key factor for the
guest bedroom’s color interiors spring design easily converts to a sitting room or lounge by day.

It showcases a ‘fresh traditional style that is
uplifting and collected with nothing staid or stuffy about it. The inspiration for the room began with an exquisite
hand-painted wallpaper designed in a collaboration
between deGournay and Erdem Moralioglu

Its design depicts a Chinoiserie pattern with a scene of nature in full bloom on a vibrant imperial yellow ground.

Antique Accessories & Vintage Plates

The adjoining bathroom continues to bring the outdoors in. The wallpaper’s hand-painted ivy pattern was custom designed
with deGournay to climb from floor to ceiling with its deep green leaves on neutral ground. The vanity’s trellis detail
further echoes the room’s verdant garden theme.

Dina Bandman was incredibly honored to have worked with many wonderful partners in this room, including deGournayCEHM&M UpholsteryMark Nelson
., DaVinci Marble, Colleen & Company, and Sam Graham from 2[g]Habitats.

The Celestial Ceiling Wallpaper | See Design Bar Design Ideas

An interpretation of Bunny’s mural is shown throughout on the bar walls, while the album cover art was used as the
inspiration for the celestial ceiling paper.

Cambria Terrazzo Countertops | See Design Bar Design Ideas

Modern terrazzo countertops from the brand-new Gensler for Cambria collaboration contrast the near priceless antiques
placed throughout in the form of a fountain to chill champagne from Pittet Architectural and Regence style mirrors and
18th Century Terracotta Urns from Embree & Lake.

Inspired by the Smashing Pumpkins, see the photos of this amazing larger-than-life butler’s pantry bar.

Awesome Luxury Kitchen Design Ideas w/ Prep Kitchen by Chad Dorsey

Prep Kitchen & Pantry In Puritan Gray by Benjamin Moore

The use of a brass tabletop with a tubular steel base and custom Apparatus Studio Trapeze Fixture offers a pleasing
contrast against the rustic Cantera Floor from Materials Marketing.

Custom dark white oak cabinets with wood and brass fittings hardware from DLV provide the industrial edge and reminds
the Beauchene’s of being on their yacht in the Cote de Azur.

Coffee Bar with Cambria Solid Materials Backsplash

Space’s focal point is a cased opening using a Cambria Stone inset with a Chinoiserie from artist James Mobley painted on Industry Glass over an
antique mirror.

Dining Room – Cathy Kincaid

Cathy Kincaid’s dining room was inspired by a combination of rooms, including Alidad and Veere Grenney, that have caught
her eye over the years. A veteran to show houses, Kincaid made a shortlist of her most trusted resources before starting
on the interior design of her
most recent showhouse room.

Gerald Bland‘s exquisite antiques including
a Georgian Gothic Three-Part Mahogany Octagonal Dining Table, which will be topped with Julia B. linens and porcelain lusterware; a pair of Adam Gessoed Arm and Dining Chairs; an Adam Gesso and Faux Porphyry Demilune
Console Table
; and a Sheraton Mahogany Sideboard.

Casci Plaster, one of Dallas’ oldest and most
respected plasterwork companies, will custom
plater majestic palm trees in the corners.

Modern contemporary art updates any room. Visit P.S. This Rocks to discover a few ways to create your own modern art with Art Basel Miami Beach inspiration. In Kips
Bay Dallas Decorators Showhouse

Most Comfortable Breakfast Nook & Keeping Room Ideas From Kips Bay Decorators Showhouse
Designer Marcus Mohon

Daily moments of peace should be destinations in and of themselves. Whether perched in a club chair with coffee in hand
and your dog at your feet or curled up on the chaise with a good book, this morning lounge is the sacred place for a
family to begin and end the day. Marcus Mohon has some great keeping room ideas, whether starting the day with breakfast
in the breakfast nook or playing a game, or watching television
in the evening.

Though stylish, every detail was designed to stand the test of time. Perennials fabrics covering the sofa and swivel
club chairs repel spills, wipeable Holly
 faux vinyl adorns the antique breakfast chairs, and wool rugs from Madison Lily and The Rug Store boast spill-friendly patterns and palettes.

While we always think of art as something that hangs. Art can be almost anything. Mixed mediums and combining multiple
types of art provide interest without making your brain go visually crazy.

The Gallery Powder Room by MNaeve

The gallery and formal powder room of the Kips
Bay Dallas Show House
 were designed by Margaret Naeve Parker of MNaeve.

The art consists of Paul Lee, Amanda
, and Jason Karolak from David Shelton Gallery. Margaret played
with scale for the art, opting for a small yet powerful piece on some of the larger walls in the gallery. The art as a
whole is a good collection of materials, texture, and composition.

She partnered with Cle Tile for the walls to install a 4″x4″ black zellige tile. To complement the dark walls, she
elected to install a wide-plank, white oak floor. Lighting was again from Apparatus Studio, and she complimented that
with a vintage mirror sourced from Hollywood at Home in Los Angeles.

Doniphan Moore’s Luxury Master Bathroom Interior Design

For the inaugural Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas, Dallas-based interior
Doniphan Moore created “Bathed in Moonlight,” a sumptuously layered master bathroom design and lavish dressing closet for intimate moments to be

Wallpapers by de Gournay, inspired by Gustav Klimt and Japanese textile designs, dance along the walls. Their sense of
romance, metallics, and jewel tones bring continuity to the master suite.

The silver background imbues the refuge with a dreamlike atmosphere that flows into the marble flooring and evolves into
a geometric, tumbling block motif, establishing a contrast yet maintaining harmony through the shared colors.

The inspiration for the color palette of this room came from the leaves of a Magnolia tree – bold leafy greens on one
side and rich rust and coppers on the other.

I loved the fly fishing fish art hanging over the Kohler Veil Smart Toilet.

A Gorgeous Babe Paley or Grace Kelly Inspired Lady’s Study Ideas by Jan Showers

Beautiful Veranda Ideas Photos & Covered Porch Ideas For Luxury Homes In Texas by Kevin Spearman

The Inaugural Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas benefiting Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club features a beautifully
designed veranda by Kevin Spearman.  Outdoor spaces have always played an important role in our lifestyle in Texas and
even more important now as we are spending more time outside.

Kevin’s goal for the covered veranda is to create an extension of chic living that was simplistic and serene.  He drew
inspiration from a project he designed in the hills outside Tel Aviv, Israel.  Tension is revealed from the mix of
styles, periods, and textures while using sustainable and organic materials.  The result is fresh and sophisticated in a
timelessly modern veranda on a traditional luxury home in Texas.

Just as you should on the interior design, outdoor furniture must be comfortable and conversational. Choose outdoor
furniture that is relaxing for entertaining for your lifestyle.

Luxury Pool & Backyard Ideas from Kips Bay Showhouse Dallas by Melissa Gerstle

Melissa Gerstle’s magical ‘magari’ garden concept evokes lavish glamour without feeling stuffy or untouchable.

A romantic woodland backdrop invites passersby to camminare con Passo leggero (trip lightly) while lounging poolside or
strolling the grounds.
