Now entering its second year, Kingston Design Connection is spearheaded by interior designer Maryline Damour. Its mission is to connect Hudson Valley designers, makers and businesses to each other, to potential clients and to the growing Kingston design scene. Kingston Design Connection hosted its first design showhouse in October 2018, representing ten interior designers, over 45 Hudson Valley makers and over 50 local design/build companies. More than 400 attendees visited the house.
This year’s showhouse is a historic 19th-century home located at 302 Clinton Avenue in Uptown Kingston, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Interior designers will be invited to take over 15 individual spaces within the structure and will collaborate with Hudson Valley artisans and makers to design their rooms. This year’s designers include Alexandra Collins of Alexandra Studios, Amanda Sanchioni, Michael Cox of Foley & Cox, Maryline Damour and Mel Jones of Damour Drake, Brooke Nelson of Transformative Spacing, Catherine Gerry of Catherine Gerry Interiors, Elizabeth Mercer of Mercer Interior, Simone Eisold, Heidi Feiwel of HF Interiors, Jennifer Salvemini, Jessica Williams of Hendley & Co., Jon Sherman of Flavor Paper, Kelsey Ter Meer of Heart & Soil, Marla Walker of Marla Walker Interiors, Gabriel de la Portilla and Ana Claudia Schutz of Ana Claudia Interiors.
