Pictures of the Kips Bay 2012 Showhouse in Manhattan this year have been floating around blog land since March, maybe before? All of the rooms are quite lovely, especially this sunporch sitting room designed by Charles Pavarini III. If the name doesn't sound familiar to you - I'm sure photos from his portfolio will:
I'm in love with these colorful velvet upholstered dining room chairs. Adding an ottoman to the center of the table keeps the line of the fireplace open and helps to add some fabulous visual interest. So great!
More of the dining room. I mean - come on people - pumpkins in the fireplace? I would have lingered in this room for hours. Docents would have to usher me out - and shew me away from the windows.
The vignettes are beautiful too. So many layers, so many textures, so many shades of perfection. Lots of inspiration for every appreciation in his vast portfolio - give it a look when you've got some free time: http://www.pavarinidesign.com/.
