The 2018 Kips Bay Decorator Show House has just opened and this bedroom by interior designer Mark D. Sikes is an absolute feast for the eyes. He nicknamed the space “Sleeping Beauty” and a beauty it is, indeed! The bedroom is covered in a magical chinoiserie wallpaper by Gracie Studio that makes the interior feel like a lush garden. “At show houses you want to create something really innovative, but I also wanted to make something that will look great in 30 years,” Sikes told Architectural Digest. Amen to that! Below, explore more of the stunning space and find my suggestions on how you can get the look in your own home.
I love tented ceiling in the vestibule area, don’t you? It’s done in a blue and white stripe fabric Sikes designed for Schumacher. The white console table is also absolutely dreamy. The slipcover on the chair on the right is in Sikes’ Santa Barabara Ikat (also available at Schumacher).
Can’t get enough of the chair.
Tulips brighten up this vignette in the vestibule.
Looking up in the vestibule. Love a tented ceiling!
Another shot of the upholstered and tented vestibule.
This shot gives you a good sense of the layout of the space. Sikes custom-designed the gorgeous striped four-poster bed.
Sikes had porcelain artist Vladimir Kanevsky create potted flowers inspired by the chinoiserie wallpaper.
Love the scalloped Walker Valentine linens on the bed.
This shot of Sikes’ space reminded me of Pauline de Rothschild’s legendary Paris bedroom. Below, is a photo of the iconic room which was surely an inspiration for the designer.

More of the fabulous, custom bed and its Walker Valentine linens. The pattern on the carpet works so well with the chinoiserie walls and striped upholstery.
More bed details. Such a pretty pleated shade on the swing-arm floor lamp.
Another vignette in the bedroom. Love the Vladimir Kanevsky porcelain flowers on the windowsill. They’re a serious investment, but are truly works of art and you’d never have to water or replace them!
Another detail of the bedroom. Sikes’ even thought to pleat the fabric of the chair back. After all, it’s the little things.
The tufted blue armchair and ottoman looks like the perfect place to curl up with a good book.
A final look of the bedroom.
And last but certainly not least, the timeless blue and white bathroom.
