The Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse proved to be a feather in the cap of our Oakland studio as we pushed our creative boundaries to design a guest suite that reflects our studio’s passion for great design. Fondly named “In Real Life,” we enveloped the suite in warm dichromatic colors, cozy fabrics, and modern features. We also recreated elements from the metaverse by using digital art and NFTs to bridge the gap between physical and virtual spaces. We played with linear elements to elevate the space, including wallpaper and bathroom tile. The black and white elements in the bathroom add contrast to the overall warm colors creating a bold, elegant look. The deep red colors in the room make a soothing respite, as do the luxurious fabrics, custom bedding, and window treatment in soft velvet.
