Eve Robinson

The 2008 Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse is now underway in New York. You can purchase tickets here to check out the great event. I want to reminisce a bit about last year's Showhouse before we jumped into 2008.

My favorite room last year belong the room designed by Eve Robinson. The room was so lush, elegant, and airy. The simple palette of creams, browns, slate blues, and charteurse green accents felt clean and classic in the space. A favorite was the large slate blue curtains which help anchor the large windows in the space. A close second was the gorgeous felt wool carpet made up of large squares that were hemmed-stiched together. I felt like I was walking on clouds. Check out more of Eve Robinson's porfolio:

I've included a few of my favorites above and below. Check out the store:

I was going to try to incorporate this post with the last about Nicolette but there was just too many amazing flowers to share. In the May issue of Domino, Nicolette also did the floral styling for a "In The Vase" piece using common vessels you can find around the house. Nicolette arranged some gorgeous small pieces in teacups, bottles, and bowls that you could easily create at home. To check out more visit:

Nicolette Camille

I kinda knew Nicolette was a floral designer (she also works at Domino) but I never knew that she made knock your socks off amazing and gorgeous arrangements. Nicolette was recently featured on Design*Sponge where Grace was equally impressed! I love the floppy romantic bouquets that incorporate just the right about of texture and color. Another great source I am filing away for when I get married. Absolutely stunning Nicolette! Check out more of Nicolette:
