Sunday Plans For Mom The Aesthete

If you're in New York and still scrambling to find the perfect spot to hang with your mom tomorrow, fear not. You can skip the epic brunch lines this Mother's Day. Instead, buy two $35 tickets to the Kips Bay 42nd Annual Decorator Show House and see the rooms at the iconic mansion on Madison after they've been transformed into modern, high-design spaces.
We can think of few things our moms would like better than wandering gorgeous rooms and talking shop with 22 of the nation's best interior designers and architects. And, her heart's sure to swell with the knowledge that all the proceeds will benefit the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, a mentoring program for local youth. Click through for a preview of the rooms and then sit back and relax. Your Sunday plans are sorted.
