Brian del Toro grew up on Long Island in a home that was full of antiques and memories. His mother had an interest in design, but in a way that brought order and nostalgia to a space. Furniture was placed to encourage conversation and objects were meant to be touched and admired. Many of the objects that belonged to del Toro’s mother and his grandmother now decorate his apartment in New York City.
Esteemed interior designer Brian del Toro returned for this year’s exciting 46th Annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Manhattan for a second round at showcasing his creations. In support of the home décor event’s fundraising efforts for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, the designer created “Laura’s Bedroom,” a romantic and relaxing space for the 2018 Show House – and House Tipster had the wonderful opportunity to speak with him to get the story behind his enchanting inspiration.
