The 2010 Kips Bay Decorator Show House opened to the public this morning. The show house, a limestone townhome on the Upper East Side, is available to buyers for a cool $28.8 million, but we commonfolk may view its interiors for the price of a mere $30.00 ticket (now through November 11).
The New York Times Home & Garden section provided extensive coverage of the 2010 Show House in today's edition: you can view those photographs here.
The Duchess liked the kitchen by Eve Robinson, and of course the entry by Katie Ridder. But none of the 2010 Show House rooms made her heart sing like these terrific rooms of yore, from show houses previous.
