This year’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House was amazing! Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a magnificent estate into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and technology. All proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Club. This was its second year in Palm Beach (its been going on in New York since 1973) and once again one of the decorators chose to use some of my work to adorn his walls. Billy Ceglia chose a whopping 48 images from my @a.social.life series and framed them up and down the hallways he was tasked with designing. In addition, I was given free reign to explore the house and take pictures of the designers and shoot more photos for my @a.social.life. Many of the designers hired me to shoot the rooms and my photos were featured by Veranda and Architectural Digest.
It was an amazing experience to both have my work on display at the Inaugural Kips Bay Decorators Show House in Palm Beach and shoot some of it for Architectural Digest and House Beautiful. Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a magnificent estate into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and technology. This year marks the first time it is being done in Palm Beach. All proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Kips Bay and Palm Beach County.
This past Sunday, July 19th The New York Times had a one page article in its Sunday style mag - T Magazine - about me. All about me! Ok, that's a lie. But it did prominently feature my photo series on kitchens in Newport, RI. The general gist of the photos (and I presume the article - I only looked at my pictures) is that the grand houses in Newport still contain kitchens that haven't been renovated for modern use. They are functional. They are used to cook food for house guests, not to show off. Its interesting. Trust me. Go check it out at: T Summer Entertainment Issueissuu.com or just look below (I make this too easy for you)
Below are the images on their own. They are just four from a much larger series that I did with the wonderful interior designer Ruthie Sommers (Check her out - she's awesome). Hopefully we will find somewhere to print the whole thing. I'll keep you posted.
