Take a tour! Tropical style, bold color, ceilings are visual treats at Kips Bay show house
Here's our room-by-room tour of the fifth-annual show house, where more than 20 decorators have transformed a 1920s home in the Old Northwood neighborhood of West Palm Beach.
How might you define "tropical style"? Let 24 decorators count the ways.
As they re-envisioned the rooms in this year's Kips Bay
Decorator Show House Palm Beach, the design professionals applied colors and motifs of the tropics in ways that ranged from the brightly saturated to the neutral, from the bold and the brilliant to the soothing and the soft - you name it, and it was there.
And there's hardly a white ceiling - or room for that matter - in the historic home that stands in the Old Northwood neighborhood of West Palm Beach.
The fifth-annual fundraiser is a satellite of the venerable Kips Bay Decorator Show House in New York and is open for tours - in person and virtually - through April 3. It benefits Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County and the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club in The Bronx in New York City.
Back in the main house, color was a mainstay in the bathrooms and the primary's suite's closet. In the primary bathroom designed by Nikki Levy, deep-green vertical fluted ceramic tile set the tone.
