Some of the country’s top designers worked their magic on a huge, double-wide $30 million townhouses in New York City for the 47th annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House. The event is a major fundraiser for the Kips Bay Boy & Girls Club, and this year was located at 36-38 East 74th Street on the city’s Upper East Side.
The show house is a major design event that Architectural Digest has called “arguably the most important show house within the design community, and serves as a rite of passage for new and veteran interior designers.”
We got a peek at all 22 of the amazing rooms on five floors of this 12,425-square-foot rare 40’ double-width Georgian townhouse. The levels are all connected by a magnificent circular staircase and the house includes 10 wood-burning fireplaces, an art studio with 17-foot ceilings and a serene private garden. Built-in 1920, it was once owned by George Whitney and later Dorothy Hearst Paley, who was immortalized by Matisse.
