All praise to the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club for 40 successful years of putting on their Decorator Show House event.  And we couldn’t be more excited for the upcoming one beginning May 7, at 161 East 64th Street.

Every year, celebrated interior designers transform a luxury Manhattan home into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art, and technology. The event began in 1973 when several dedicated women’s committee members of the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club launched the Kips Bay Decorator Show House to raise funds for much needed after school and enrichment programs for New York City children. Over the course of four decades, this project has raised in excess of $17 million and grown into a “must destination” for thousands of design enthusiasts and is recognized for launching interior design trends throughout the world. Today, the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club is one of the most prominent and responsive youth development agencies in New York City and a “flagship” of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

On April 16, Margaret Russell and Bunny Williams chaired the President’s Dinner for the Kips Bay Decorator Show House 2013 with Jamie Drake, Tony Ingrao, Randy Kemper, and Richard Mishaan at the Mandarin Oriental.

Guests gathered to toast the 19 designers who contributed to the black-tie event, which was hosted by Architectural Digest. There, they enjoyed a performance from In The Heights by members of the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club before departing with gift bags by Scalamandre.
