As I mentioned recently, this year's Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse is a tribute to Albert Hadley and last week the participating designers were announced. Mario Buatta and Charlotte Moss will serve as honorary chairs and in addition, Ms. Moss and team will design a three-room Master Suite. Some of the other designers include Bunny Williams, Christopher Coleman, Jamie Drake, Joe Nye, Juan Montoya and Gloria Vanderbilt. Yes, I said Gloria Vanderbilt. I didn't realize she dabbled in design beyond jeans but a little research turned up an interesting post by An Aesthete's Lament about her decorating ability. Should be a very interesting showhouse this year!
In other news, I heard that the owners of the Charlotte Moss Townhouse will be leasing the space to designer Monique Lhuillier so it seems that Ms. Moss is in need of some new office space. With all the empty offices and store fronts in the city right now, I'm sure she won't have any trouble.
