KIPS BAY PALM BEACH SHOWHOUSE 2017

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….

LCDQ LEGENDS 2015: MUSES BEHIND THE WINDOWS

“Where Muses Dwell” was the theme of this year’s highly anticipated LEGENDS windows. 67 designers were invited to present the person, place, era or object that is their muse (or source of inspiration) in the windows of the LCDQ storefronts. For the first time, a contest was held to vote of the best window in three categories.  When looking at the windows, I considered the following criteria…the uniqueness of the idea, the execution of the concept, and the overall aesthetics of the space. The window designers outdid themselves in terms of creativity and originality. The competition was heated with even Kris Kardashian Jenner joining in promoting her favorite designer on social media. A special thank you to all of my friends who rallied the troops to vote! All of the windows can be viewed by clicking here.

Here are the winners and several other windows that caught my eye…
