One of my other favorite rooms at this year's Kips Bay Decorator Show House was the Art Collector's Room by Aman & Carson. It is the type of room that is on first glance beautiful but really reveals itself over time. I found myself noticing more and more details the longer I spent looking around. The designers website describes their style as updated, classic, American interior design and that could also describe their room. When I asked them about their inspiration, they told me that is was a project they are currently working on for a client. The room was a way to show her what was possible in her space and I joked that it was much better than any rendering. They use similar tricks as a few other designers with the high gloss paint and mirrors behind the bookshelves which expand the room. The adjoining powder room was an opportunity to create a little fantasy space with their friend and designer Maggie Norris. Enjoy!
