Remember how this year's Kips Bay Decorator Show House nearly wrecked the lives of 13,000 needy kids when the original townhouse, at 26 West 76th Street in NYC, sold a few weeks before the event? Of course, organizers later found an alternate location, but let's hope that brouhaha doesn't happen again this year. This year's showhouse will take place at 163 East 63rd Street, a four-story, 10,000-square-foot home with 16 rooms. Designers and landscapers have yet to be announced; the space opens to the public April 28 and, as usual, benefits the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. It's also worth noting that NYC will host two major showhouses simultaneously this year; Elle Decor's yet-undisclosed "concept showhouse" will open its doors in May.
