there is no place like home, especially for a child
New York, NY (Vocus) October 14, 2010
To show support for the Kips Bay Decorator Show House to benefit the Kips Bay Boys and Girls club, designer Zoya Bograd has released a video showing the inspiration and final design of her 2009 ‘Wizard of Oz – Dorothy’s Room’ from the house.
The Opening Night preview of the Kips Bay Decorator Show House on October 13th was flooded with excitement and celebration of this wonderful, stylish and most importantly, charitable event. Bograd could not help but release her video at this time because she, like so many others, feels that showing support for the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club is extremely important. Their mission to help children strive in a safe environment is something that Bograd agrees with because she feels that “there is no place like home, especially for a child”.
As a participant in last year’s show house, she explored her passion for designing children’s bedrooms with her Wizard of Oz themed, ‘Dorothy’s Room’. Bograd is known to have a passion for designing children’s bedrooms with whimsical and dreamy details. She not only adds a great sense of style to the spaces, as a designer, but also strongly believes in education and bringing that into her design. This is why she chose to design in support of the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club. What they provide to children is something that she truly believes in. In ‘Dorothy’s Room’ she uses her philosophy on designing with education and intent by telling the story of the classic Wizard of Oz. Some of the elements shown in the video that drive home this philosophy are her custom area rug depicting the classic story and a bookcase full of storybooks about Oz and its history.
‘Dorothy’s Room’ has been featured in the New York Times, NY Social Diary, House Beautiful, Newsday, and Bloomberg.com as well as popular Oz-centric publications The Ozmapolitan and Baum Bugle. The video diary of how ‘Dorothy’s Room’ was made is available on Youtube as well as the Rooms by ZoyaB website. Not only does it describe Bograd’s philosophy on design, but it also gives you a great look inside the room. Bograd is owner of Rooms by ZoyaB, a multi-line trade showroom in the New York Design Center, as well as ‘RoomsByZoyaB.com’, her newly launched website that offers heirloom quality baby, children, and adult furnishings and accessories. The website also has features that include Furniture by Room and Themes to make the design process easy for clients designing from home. Bograd feels that our customer ranges on a wide spectrum and everyone, no matter where they live or what they do, should have access to great design.
The 2010 Kips Bay Decorator Show House will be held from October 14th through November 11th at 106 East 71st Street, New York, NY. Hours of operation will be Monday through Sunday from 11am—5pm with later hours on Tuesday and Thursday evenings until 8pm. Doors open from noon to 5pm on Sundays. Admission is $30.
