May Special Event: Membership Breakfast at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House
One of the nation’s leading design events, the Kips Bay Decorator Show House, is now in its 47th year. Each year, a home in New York City is chosen to be redesigned and decorated for tens of thousands of people to tour. The proceeds of the tour go to the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, which provides important after school enrichment programs for NYC children. Last month, NKBA Manhattan Chapter members were graciously hosted for breakfast by Monogram Appliances. This year, the home was a stunning double-width Georgian townhouse with 12,425 square feet of space, and Monogram was there. Monogram partnered with AJ Madison to sponsor the kitchen, and worked with Peacock Cabinetry’s Christopher Peacock on its design. The result is an inviting, functional kitchen that is any cook’s dream. Peacock’s inspiration for the kitchen was to create “A simple, clean and open kitchen, that is easy to use with practical materials.” He was certainly on the mark with this design. His design is upscale and gives serious attention to details. Peacock says he sees this as, “… a great place to kill a bottle of wine,” and we couldn’t agree more. It’s comfortable and begs for you to sit at the island for conversation over a bottle of Cabernet. A big thank you to Monogram for the beautiful morning event.
