Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach Kicks Off
The Fifth Annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach officially opens to the public Saturday, March 5, at 3001 Spruce Avenue in West Palm Beach’s Old Northwood Historic District. The house showcases the creativity and design expertise of 24 of the nation’s most acclaimed interior designers and architects.
For the next month, design lovers from around the nation, visitors, and locals will have the opportunity to tour the completed Show House. The Show House will also offer a 3D virtual video tour for those who are not able to attend in person. Visits to the House must be booked in advance to ensure proper social distancing and the wearing of face masks is required for all visitors. Tickets for the Show House can be purchased here. The Show House will be open to the public for one month closing on April 3, and doubles as the nation’s leading design event of the year and a major fundraiser for Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County.
“We’re incredibly excited that the showhouse is now open to the public”, says James Druckman, President of the Board of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. “The designers and architects of this year’s Show House have worked around the clock to bring their dream rooms to life. We think they have encapsulated the essence of Palm Beach perfectly and we’re looking forward to welcoming guests in.”
The Show House attracts 15,000 visitors each year and all proceeds benefit the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. The Clubs offer innovative after-school and enrichment programs for more than 21,000 youth, ages six through 18 in ten locations throughout the Bronx and 17 across Palm Beach County. The esteemed show houses have raised over $25 million to date.
“We’re looking forward to seeing how the designers have transformed the Show House and thrilled that some have had the opportunity to meet and inspire our Club members that the proceeds of this event support,” said Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County President & CEO Jaene Miranda. “I would like to thank all of the sponsors and designers for this year’s Show House. Without their generosity and talents, our Clubs would not be able to fulfill our mission of ensuring all youth reach their full potential.”
Honorary Chairs for this year’s Show House include designer Ellie Cullman, designer and Veranda Columnist Joy Moyler, and Veranda Editor in Chief Steele Marcoux.
