If you’ve ever designed a room for a Kips Bay Decorator Show House, the most celebrated show house in America, then you know Nazira. She has produced 13 Kips Bay Decorator Show Houses in NYC, Palm Beach and now Dallas. Nazira will lead a panel of designers who have all designed rooms for Kips Bay, in a discussion covering such topics as how to apply to do a room in a show house; what does a show house committee look for in a designer; the application process; costs involved; commitment; what a designer can expect as a result of participating in a show house; illustrated with images from past magnificent rooms in Kips Bay Decorator Show Houses, including last year’s show house in Dallas. On the panel, designer Chad Dorsey, Dallas; Doniphan Moore, Dallas; Lauren Rottet, LA, Houston, NYC; Margaret Naeve, LA, Houston, NYC.
