I have been insanely lucky this year in finding myself in amazing destinations at the same time of incredible showhouses and art exhibitions. There is nothing better than seeing the talents of other creatives to expand one’s owns minds and stimulate new ways of imaginative thinking. The Kips Bay showhouse is the like the Oscars for our interior design profession. For the first time in 45 years, the organization did a Palm Beach iteration of the showhouse which supports the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club. The Honorary Show House Chair is Bunny Williams and the Design Chairs are Ellie Cullman and Pauline Pitt.
Villa Belmonte is the home of this year’s showhouse in the El Cid neighborhood. The 1920s Meditteranean Revival house is the perfect backdrop for 20 insanely creative designers to showcase their talents. I was delighted to see so many favorite designers as well as beloved old and new design friends participate in this year’s first Palm Beach showhouse. Hopefully, this will be the beginning of an annual design event. Click HERE to get tickets before the house closes on December 19. Enjoy the tour….

This is the last weekend to see the Southeastern Designer Showhouse and Gardens presented by Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Magazine. Nestled in the heart of Buckhead, this stunning home is on one of the most magnificent pieces of property in Atlanta. Overlooking a beautiful forest, valley and polo fields, one would never know they were in the midst of the Southeast’s largest city. Click HERE to get tickets.
