Kips Bay Decorator Show House 2010: Aman & Carson

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!

This is by far the best space to date.
I love the subtle neoclassical-cum-orientalist vibe.

Cheers, Alcira

There is so much happening in this room; it is hard to pick a favorite. But I have to go with the neo-gothic arm chairs-they are truly fantastic and a surprise with the regency/empire tone of the balance of the room--but they work. Great photos. Thanks. Mary

Perhaps another year.
