Last week I celebrated with many talented designers the opening of the 2nd Annual Kips Bay Palm Beach Show House. It was a beautiful party where guests were able to preview the rooms and celebrate with the designers.
We were all given three months to design a room that we felt had the Palm Beach look and style. My firm was given a small study to design and right away I knew it was going to be a lounge, something to draw people in for “cocktails and conversation.” Working on a show house is not very different than any other interior design project. You choose a direction and implement the design. When designing a show house you want to create something really interesting but also a room that feels livable and stands the test of time. Inspired by fabrics that have a true bohemian feel, I chose to work with one of Lisa Fine’s fabrics called Calico Stripe in Lipstick color way. Red, raspberry and pink echoed with a bright happy turquoise turned out to be the perfect combination. Very preppy boho as I like to call it.
Its amazing with social media as you get to see other peoples perspective through their posts etc. I have included here some of my favorite images of our room . It all started with a vision on paper. And in these images you can see it really is all about the details!
The Kips Bay Show House is open until February 20th at 6215 South Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach. I will be at the house this Wednesday, February 6th, all day and will be attending a party later that night at the house. Hope to see you there!
