Do you ever wonder what they look like inside?
“Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a magnificent estate into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and technology. This all began in 1973 when several dedicated supporters of Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club launched the Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Manhattan to raise critical funds for much needed after school and enrichment programs for New York City children.
For more than four decades, the show house has been a must-see event for thousands of design enthusiasts, renowned for sparking interior design trends throughout the world. In 2017, the show house expanded with a second location in Palm Beach, in partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County.”
My husband and I spent a truly enjoyable and relaxing few hours yesterday morning touring the Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Palm Beach. What a great idea for a fund raiser!!
It’s a win-win-win proposition:
*The owner moves out and allows the property to be completely redone by top design professionals in exchange for what truly is a month’s long, daily open house. Yes- the house is for sale. ($5.9 Million)
*The designers are each able to transform one area within, or outside of, the house-promoting their craft, their products and meeting tons of potential future clients..many more than would walk through the doors of their businesses, that’s for sure!
*The Boys and Girls Club enjoys the proceeds generated by this very popular, ticketed event.
Here are the pictures of this year’s dreamy home:
To be “fair” to my husband, who was an enthusiastic team player the entire morning, we topped it off with lunch at Havana- Happy Early Valentine’s Day!
