A lesson from Kipps Bay Showhouse 2015

By Lisa Peck, ASID
In addition to working our Sylvie & Mira booth at ICFF in New York, we made time for many other activities that inspired us as designers. One of the best things we did was enjoy the work of fellow interior designers and decorators at the annual Kips Bay Showhouse which benefits the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club. The 43rd annual showhouse did not disappoint and while we could walk you through the entire house, I think there has been plenty of coverage already! Instead, I want to revisit a topic that gets overlooked in many interiors but not in truly well-designed spaces. A lesson always worth revisiting. A great design will always address the ceiling! Look up…what do you see? A bland ceiling white plain plane? Consider jazzing up those ceilings! There are many ways to make your ceiling a more integrated part of your environment and it will change you experience of your space
