T his month marks the opening of t h e K i p s B a y Decorator Show House Dallas, where Detroit- and New York City-based interior designer Corey Damen Jenkins has been tapped to design the formal dining room. This isn't his first show house invitation: At Kips Bay New York City 2019, Jenkins designed a lady's library, which was a smash hit. Jenkins' signature bold, polished aesthetic is intimately revealed in his new book, Design Remix: A New Spin on Traditional Rooms (Rizzoli); a fantastic lesson in how to incorporate vibrant color, embrace what he terms eclectic exuberance, and take a minimalist design approach while sticking with traditional elements. A member of the AD 100 and Elle Decor A-List, the very-dapper Jenkins has been featured in House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Vanity Fair, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times. He's received multiple distinguished awards, including Fashion Group International's Night of Stars Award for Interior Design, New York School of Interior Design Larry Kravet Design Industry Leadership Award, and Traditional Home's New Trad Rising Star of Design Award.
