Interior designer Suzanne Kasler was tasked with designing the Great Room in the 2020 Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Palm Beach but the room was far from great when she first saw it. The large double-height asymmetrical room was devoid of architectural details and light. “What was great about the space was the volume, […]

There are many people who declare themselves an interior designer with no education or even experience but this is not the case with Alice Engel, the interior design director for Peter Pennoyer Architects. The Manhattan born and bred Engel has an A.B. in History of Art and Architecture from Harvard and a Masters in Textile […]

After the over the top monstrosities of the Met Gala yesterday, I think it’s time for a palette cleanser. I can’t think of a better refresh than with the “Room of her Own” designed by Sarah Bartholomew for the Kips Bay Decorator Show House this year. It’s a calm and soothing respite from the craziness […]

I arrived at the top floor room of Young Huh at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House out of breath from running up five flights of stairs to see her. After exclaiming that I need to make a bigger commitment to cardio, she luckily assured me it happened to everyone. If the elevator isn’t working […]

It’s that time of year again. The Kips Bay Decorator Show House opens to the public tomorrow and I had a full walk through yesterday. Since I stared in coverage in 2007, I always like to start at the top and work my way down each year. There is always a younger designer given a […]

Normally, I would put together a list of new and noteworthy art exhibitions, events, movies, and more on Friday but I wanted to give you an early heads up for some of them since they will end on Sunday. I will also be covering the Kips Bay Decorator Show House and traveling this weekend which […]

It was raining when I visited the Kips Bay Show House in Palm Beach and Peter Dunham‘s room looked like the perfect place for rainy day activities. The Los Angeles based designer upholstered the walls in his Collage fabric from Peter Dunham Textiles, upholstered the sofa in his Souk fabric, and grounded the room with […]

I refuse to post anything more winter related. I’m over it and I’m sure most of the country feels the same way. So let’s look at the very flattering peachy pink colored bedroom suite designed by Danielle Rollins for the Kips Bay Show House Palm Beach. She said she was inspired by the Florida sunset […]

I can’t think of a better time to post the most old school Florida inspired room from the Kips Bay Show House Palm Beach than when most of the country is experiencing the coldest weather in history. Perhaps the bright and sunny room by interior designer Meg Braff will be the just catalyst you need […]

If interior designer Billy Ceglia can make a motley crew of assorted spaces in the Kips Bay Show House Palm Beach look good, imagine what he can do in a whole house. He was assigned the downstairs back hallway, a bathroom that is the public restroom for the house, a small mudroom, the back staircase, a […]

One of the driving principles of who I post on Habitually Chic is that the person must be nice. And not just nice to me. One person who is niceness personified is interior designer Michael Herold who designed by foyer at the 2018 Kips Bay Decorator Show House. I arrived later than expected to the […]

Interior designer Alexa Hampton is known for classical design elements and no where is this more apparent than in her “Olympia Folly” living room in the 2018 Kips Bay Decorator Show House. Her vision for the room was a draped and tented space that opened to reveal a folly. De Gournay created the custom mural […]
