The Kips Bay Decorator Show House is coming back to Palm Beach for a fourth year in spring 2021, taking over a spectacular Mediterranean manse in SoSo (south of Southern). This 4,400-square-foot property is sure to be a brilliant canvas for some of the world’s most renowned names in design to create a home that embodies the elegant ease of indoor and outdoor living this south Florida destination offers year-round.

This year’s show house features five bedrooms, six bathrooms, formal living and dining spaces, a 30-foot atrium, and phenomenal outdoor rooms. Three outdoor terraces, a tropical pool area, and direct beach access—plus, views of the Intracoastal from every room—are sure to inspire interiors that reflect the home’s spectacular surroundings.

“Our goal is to continually build on the success of each year’s show houses, constantly raising the bar. And this year, we’re thrilled to secure a beautiful location that will play home to the talents of a new set of renowned designers,” said James Druckman, president of the board of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and president and CEO of the New York Design Center. “We’re delighted to return to Palm Beach to raise critical funds for Boys & Girls Clubs in New York and Florida and serve as a source of inspiration for the public and designers alike after a very unprecedented year.”

This year’s event will look different from the other three hosted in Palm Beach, as it will be a hybrid event in light of Covid-19, offering virtual and in-person experiences that fit the needs of design enthusiasts everywhere. The show house will be open to the public from April 8, 2021 to May 9, 2021, with an Opening Day Preview Reception on April 7, 2021. Those who wish to attend in person will be required to wear masks, along with employees of the house, who will also receive regular health screenings. Those who wish to view the home from afar will also be able to participate online during this window.

VERANDA will serve as the program’s exclusive national media sponsor with Editor-in-Chief Steele Thomas Marcoux and designers Ellie Cullman of Cullman & Kravis and Joy Moyler of Joy Moyler Interiors serving as Design Co-Chairs this year. And as always, the show house will serve to raise funds for Boys & Girls Club programs and activities in both New York and Palm Beach.

“Events like the show house allow our clubs to continue our mission to help as many young people as possible. With the new safeguards in place this year, our hope is that the event will be another step toward recovery for our community while also helping to fund crucial Boys & Girls Club programs throughout Palm Beach County and the Bronx, New York,” stated Robert Dunkin, chairman of the board of Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. “Our Clubs have met the increased challenges brought on by the pandemic, but more work is needed to care for our community’s most vulnerable children. We thank the decorators, donors, and attendees of the show house for ensuring that our clubs will continue to be a beacon of hope for thousands of families.”

Stay tuned for more information on the designers selected, renderings, and more for what’s sure to be an inspiring event for designers and enthusiasts of all kinds in a time when we need it most.
