Hello ! and Happy Wednesday! In the office with great music plying and opened my emails and noticed a bunch were questions on how a show house comes to reality!

Those are really good questions, and certainly ones that we designers, participating, ask ourselves over many cocktails!! Once you are asked, and of course say yes! the hard work really starts.  The other designers you are amongst, in my case with Kips Bay, some of the best talent in the country.  So immediately your thoughts go to what room, what time period, what does the venue look like and the adrenaline starts pumping and the vodka flowing!! Kidding, sort of.

So, when i went to look at the house, which is on East 63rd, I went through and fell in love with the “His” Master bathroom. So the choice was made and my first thought after that, was immediately to pick up the phone and simultaneously email Nancy Epstein, the President of Artistic Tile, Laura Steele the head of Public Relations and Lauren Cherkas, the Vice President.  With emails of OMG i need you to do this with me!

I have been in love with Artistic Tile for many years.  They are a very unique tile resource that has enormous capabilities, that they use to bring to market, the latest in tile designs, materials and color palettes that are amazing!  Tile is a very funny business that many of the companies look like each other.  So then price points come into play and to tell you the truth, I have never had that with Artistic Tile.  I consistently use them on every project, in fact a project that will be in East Coast Home and Design, the May issue, Which was shot by Durston Saylor is all of their materials.

So, in putting together a room for a show house, you have to treat the room as if you were working for a client and go from there.  tile being the biggest factor in this room, is were to begin!

I look forward to a great time! and please stop by and say hello!

Ok, so I can honestly say that a dream of mine and a huge aspiration has come true!  when I got the invitation to be part of this year’s Show House, I could have been pushed over with a feather!

Kips Bay is an amazing organization and benefits the boys and Girls club.

Following is the mission statement:

Responding to community needs, the services provided at the Lucile Palmaro Clubhouse and ten outreach locations are based on the principles of behavioral guidance and are intended to promote the general health, educational advancement, character development and leadership potential of its members. Our responsibility is to provide these 6 to 18 year old boys and girls with the programs and activities that instill a sense of competence, a sense of belonging, and a sense of power and influence.

The mission of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club is to improve and enhance the quality of life for all young people, with special emphasis on those who need us most between ages 6-18. Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club exists to assist as many young people as possible to realize and achieve their potential for growth and development and to attain the skills necessary to live and succeed in a complex world.
