Back to our coverage of the Kips Bay show house that is still going strong, as evidenced every time I pass by, now thru Feb 20th.  We were downstairs ~ now we go upstairs.
The bathroom by Krista + Home was spectacular with its book matched marble, custom built-ins for everything including a bar, for pregaming, before a night out (or in).
Jason Arnold rook a different approach and did an "un palm beach" look.  His room was inherently dark so he went with it.  Phillip Jefferies velvet covered the walls creating a sumptuous lounge like feeling.  Sculptural pieces of furniture and well placed lighting made it really cozy and gave us the impression  a well traveled couple might live here.  The photograph is by  Bastian Woudt.  His sobering  photos of the Ugandan people help support local clean water projects.

David Mitchell Brown used soft water colors in his soothing master bedroom. They may be soft at night but they are energizing in the morning.  We already know that de Gournay wallpaper shimmers and dances in the light so adding the citrine drapes, crystals, reflective night tables and mixed metals all make the dance that much more dazzling!

Stair and hallways are notoriously difficult but Billy Ceglia did such a cohesive job.  Inspired by a picture of a graphic gown he had hanging on an inspiration board and his friend and photographer Nick Mele, he was off and running.  Yards of Kravet fabric with an added graphic punch and oodles of photos by Nick grace the connecting corridors.

If you have not heard of Nick Mele  check out his instagram account @a.social.life .  He creates wonderfully quirky photos starring himself, his wife and 2 kids, in ordinary settings but with a twist.

Danielle Rollins was inspired by the Palm Beach sunsets and I can attest to the sky looking this color often, on a perfect night.  You do feel enveloped by it!  Danielle said she was conjuring the 1970's vibe of  "Pucci during the day and Halston at night."  Her new collection of ombré colored art for Wendover art hangs in a large grouping on either side of the room.

With a sumptuous bed, a bathroom, a bar and this fab little patio, there is really no reason to leave.

Leanne Yarn of Yarn Design Associates calls her blue lounge the home's hideaway.  Playing off the view of the water outside, blue and silver are the predominate colors and blue chip art give weight to the room while it still remains calming.  The custom bookcase doors are covered in coconut shells.

Amy Meier did a beautiful job outside creating an artful space in the loggia.  She wanted to highlight the flora and fauna and to do that she employed the help of metal artist David DeSantis.  He custom made the iron daybed and installation surrounding the fireplace mantle that could take your breath away.  Amy told me she kept saying to David, "more leaves, more leaves!"  The Sutherland  furniture beautifully anchored  the sculptural pieces throughout the area which gave the whole  environment more depth.
