Kips Bay is back in all its glory. A few location and design missteps over the past few years can be overlooked-- since this year, the showhouse is amazing. After attending the packed opening party last night, there is great buzz. The lively crowd was positive about the future, and honest about the reality of the economy. Designers are taking action to maintain and get new clients, trimming the size of their staff, and getting creative about how to do projects on a lesser budget. I will bring you all the best rooms and details soon, stay posted!
