Kips Bay Decorator Show House NYC: Villalobos Desio
"We wanted to create a luxurious gentleman's cabinet where one could retreat to escape from the bustle of modern day life," say designers Alberto Villalobos and Mercedes Desio. The herringbone-patterned floor is leather, as are the wall panels. The lighting is inspired by chiaroscuro.
Brown and black-striped wallpaper gives dramatic flair to this workspace, especially when paired with the open shelves full of interesting accessories and artifacts. Positioned directly in front of the window, the desk takes full advantage of the view.
A reclaimed wood desk and graphic black-and-white triptych photograph give this urban home office an eclectic, homey feel. Glass-front shelves and a comfortable leather chair add function, while soft taupe walls bring warmth.
Concrete and Zebrawood Countertops in Eclectic Orange Kitchen
This kitchen features a beautiful blend of light and dark materials with both concrete countertops, light wood cabinetry, zebrawood breakfast bar countertops and distressed metal panels and hood. The warm orange walls accentuate the array of neutrals used in this contemporary kitchen.
This master bedroom combines antiques with contemporary wall and floor coverings to create a unique, eclectic room. The mix of contemporary of fabric on pillows with traditional furniture makes for a fresh, updated look.
Eclectic, Masculine Tailor Shop Full of Vintage Inspiration
A bespoke tailor shop with throwbacks of vintage is the quintessential place to shop a modern market of men's suiting. The eclectic shop is full of leather furniture, vintage artwork and lots of natural light for a comfortable shopping experience.
A simple thing like wallpaper can have an amazing effect. In this foyer, the wallpaper gives the impression of magical vines surrounding the room. The mood is enhanced by the pendant light with a pattern that echoes the wall print.
Inspired by the farm and landscape, rustic wood paneling is used on the top half of the walls in this guest house's media room. The lower half of the wall is painted a cool gray, blending perfectly with a comfortable sectional. The Union Jack symbol and colors add a touch of English love to the space.
Continuing her theme of "Bermuda in the city," designer Anna Donohue created a teenage retreat that is replete with fun patterns and colors. The bed and wall covering are simple in design, but graphic patterns in the pillows, Roman shade and bulletin board give the room a bold look. A black industrial-style lamp adds whimsy and spunk.
The Ikat area rug is the starting point of the room's color palette and perfect for this kid-friendly living room since it's industrial-strength nylon. The gleaming side table mimics the chrome accents of the bright pink chair and adds a glam note to the room.
Eclectic Brown and Neutral Guest Room With Zebra Print Accents
A neutral color palette keeps this guest room sophisticated, but the zebra print pillows insert a little fun. Wooden nightstands are positioned on either side of the brown leather bed, while a ceiling fan hangs above a brown wooden armchair with bead-like arms and legs.
