The 41st annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House opens this week, with eighteen designers?including Jack Levy, Sara Story, and Christopher Peacock?given a 5,640-square-foot Upper East Side townhouse to play around with. Curbed National visited and brought back a glorious photo gallery of the house; click through for the full look.

The address of the place is 161 East 64th Street, and the townhouse belongs to law firm partner and art collector Richard Sharp, who bought it in 2003 for $6.58 million. Sharp plans to sell the house after the showhouse closes on June 4, and while he hadn't, at last report, determined a price, he apparently will be keeping the fish wallpaper that Jack Levy installed for the house.
