It was announced last week that the 2014 Kips Bay Decorator Show House would be held in the historic Villard mansion at 457 Madison Avenue and the list of participating designers were announced today. I know many of them but I'm especially proud that my friends Mercedes Dios and Alberto Villalobos who own the store Etos has been chosen to design a room this year.
“We are honored to invite such an illustrious team of designers and architects this year to transform one of the nation’s most legendary mansions and pay tribute to its rich history,” said Bunny Williams, celebrated interior designer and this year’s Show House Chair. “With this extraordinary team, we are confident that we will surpass this year’s fund-raising goal for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club to further enhance after-school and enrichment programs for both our region and the nation’s youth.”
