$51M NYC Mansion To Be The Place For 2018 Kips Bay Decorator Show

For any home decoration company like BD Decorators, it’s a great honor to be called to decorate any popular home or to be called to display their work in a home decoration show.

For this year’s Kips Bay Decorator Show, an affluent mansion, located in the Big Apple’s Upper East Side, will act as the canvas for the decoration expo’s chosen decorators.

The mansion is located at 110 East 76th Street, NYC and is valued at $51 million. It was listed by developer Joseph Chetrit, back in 2017, one of three large and affluent townhouses on East 76th Street. All three mansions were made via combining six brownstones into a few, but large megamansions, with the price tags appropriate for their scale. The smallest is 13,000ft2, the largest is 15,000ft2, with the cheapest at $39 million. The home to be used for the Decorator Show is the most expensive of the three.

Over 20 interior designers were chosen for the event, and will decorate one of the many, many, rooms of the mansion as part of the show, which happens at May 2018.

Organized and handled by the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, the event has attracted the attention of decorators like BD Decorators, as the best and most notable of interior events in the Big Apple, with designers like Victoria Hagan and Thom Filicia having participated in the past.

This new canvas will have plenty of space for the designers to work their magic, as the 15,000ft2 home has a staggering eight bedrooms, with a master suite so big, it’s larger than most of New York’s apartments. Additionally, the mansion features 10 bathrooms, a fully-landscaped backyard with a roof terrace, and other myriad features, perfect for the decorators hoping to flex their creative muscles.

The East 76th Street townhouse continues the show’s tradition of using affluent and on-the-market townhouse as the canvas for its decorators. Back in 2017, China Institute’s former Upper East Side HQ was used as the backdrop for the show, while Extell’s Carlton House mansion and the Arthur Sachs mansion on East 66th Street were the backdrops for 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Tourists Flock To Thailand To Enjoy Sporting Events

Sporting events play a big role in Thailand’s tourism industry. Marine events usually attract affluent tourists who are willing to spend big bucks to participate or watch regattas. For example, many tourists prefer to stay at Koh Tao villas when they want to enjoy scuba diving in the island. Luxury travellers have high expectations so that the best type of accommodations is offered with panoramic views of mountains and waters.

Apart from scuba diving in Koh Tao, tourists will enjoy different sporting events in Phuket. Every year, thousands of tourists flock to the island to witness regattas hosted by Phuket. The island is becoming a premier destination for sports enthusiasts who want to swim, bike, run, play golf or sail. However, the most popular sporting events that attract a lot of tourists include regattas ad yachting.

Over the years, Phuket managed to establish a name as a popular destination for sailors and spectators. Thailand has a long history of sailing. Thailand hosts various events that include Phuket King’s Cup Regatta, Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous and Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek.  Aside from the contributions to the economy, sailing events help local communities. Marine events attract a lot of wealthy tourists who keep on coming back to the islands to enjoy their passion.

There is a lot of growth potential for sports tourism. According to a research made by Infinity Communications & Consultants, a marketing communications agency in Thailand, at least 40 million Baht is spent by tourists on food and drink alone during the week of Phuket King’s Cup Regatta. The estimated amount does not include spending for travel, entertainment, entry tickets and boat maintenance.

When there is a regatta, a large number of guests are received at hotels and restaurants. Aside from the regatta, tourists also enjoy the warm hospitality, natural environment, good connectivity and world-class facilities.

The highest expectations of guests are fulfilled at Koh Tao villas where a stay will be filled with memorable experiences. Luxury travellers will enjoy natural wilderness with amazing views of the landscape and beautiful waters. Guests will feel like they are at home because of privacy and relaxing ambiance.
