When a great charity joins forces with interior design teams, we locals have a wonderful opportunity to tour a beautiful home while doing good. After Palm Beach County lost its American Red Cross Designers’ Show House in 2016 after 40 years, it left a void and Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach was born.
Back for its second year, this year’s design teams are hard at work transforming The Fountain House, a 10,000 square foot Mediterranean home on the Intracoastal in the magnificent South of Southern (SoSo) Neighborhood. Affiliated with the long running Kips Bay Show House in New York City, the home tour will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County and the Kips Bay Boys & Girl Club in New York City.
We drive by it on our daily commute and can attest to the hustle and bustle of activity as they approach the home stretch. You can see the transformation for yourself at the Opening Night Preview Party on January 25, 2019. The home will be open to the public from January 26 - February 20. General admission hours are 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon – 5 p.m. Sunday. Buy advance tickets here or at the door.
