Have you been to the Kips Bay Show House or read any of the reviews? I haven't made it into the city to see this, but I do know that show houses in general can be a tricky thing. The room designed by Sara Story received a lot of (controversial) coverage, enough to prompt me to go back and re-visit the Sara Story Design portfolio. I had written about Sara's work before and sure enough it's still as lovely as I remember it...maybe even more so! Plenty of fresh, modern inspiration and Sara now has a new wallpaper line that also looks very enticing. This all sort of reminds me of a decor version of "runway to reality"... are you getting that too?
