New York City Mansion WOW

A few weeks ago I was in NY and went to visit the Kips Bay Show house.  I love visiting show houses because there are always so many creative ideas, along with unusual ways of using products.

 

Proceeds from the Kips Bay show house each year benefit the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club across 10 locations in the Bronx.

 

This year’s house was the Arthur Sachs Mansion on East 66th Street and Park Avenue and was a gem.  This lavish brownstone is almost 140 years old and recently underwent several renovations.

 

Some of the areas that you will see in the photos include an unusual travertine over the fireplace that was imported from Istanbul, a fabulous marble bathroom floor, an outdoor bath setting on the NYC balcony, and a dramatic sitting area space.
