Kips Bay Matthew Patrick Smyth

I'm heading off to the Florian Papp gallery for a book signing for Matthew Patrick Smyth's new book- Living Traditions, but first I wanted to show you Matthew's room at this years Kips Bay Show House.  Most designers would shy away from this room as the one stipulation the homeowners had was that the vintage wall mural not be touched.   Fortunately Matthew is not one of those and the stunning results show.
 Matthew added custom drapes  along with an Asian influence to create an elegant peaceful dining room.
If I could take one thing from the room it would be the amazing chandelier by Jacques Jarrige. The delicate metal arms flutter in the breeze while gently lighting the room.


  1. I know that you will long refer to MPS's book for ideas and good advice. I totally agree with you about the existing wallpaper...not afraid of challenges is this terrific designer.
