Eclectic Home Tour – Kips Bay Palm Beach Show House

Prepare to be wowed! I had the pleasure of getting an early, sneak-peek tour of the Kips Bay Palm Beach Show House and it is over the top amazing! 23 designers unleashed their creativity and the results are stunning. From the tiny “Gimme a Break” room that’s better than any She Shed, to the “Peony Pavilion” that overlooks the pool, to the huge rooftop with incredible hand painted ceiling murals, to the light fixtures that will take your breath away, each room is more incredible than the next.

Don’t miss the five minute video below where I walk you through your own personal tour of the house.

The Parlour

Betsy Wentz dreamed up “The Parlour” that is a riot of color and pattern.

Florals, florals everywhere along with colorful art make this a fun place to hang out.

Gimme a Break

Designer Megan Gorelick didn’t let the fact that her room was literally a closet deter her from her vision!

She created this “Gimme a Break” room that mixes pink butterfly wallpaper with leopard print that rivals any she-shed.

Fun little details include places to set your dessert and eye mask as well as a cabinet filled with candy and vodka for mixing up an ice cold martini.

Who needs a bathroom when you can have a “De-Loo-Loo”! Megan Gorelick paired pink and blue to create a fun place to take a bubble bath.

Fun fact – I have the same light blue penny tile in my girls bathroom!

It’s the little details like a coral chandelier and hand painted vines on the ceiling that bring this space to life.

I hope this home got your creative decorating juices flowing like it has mine!

If you are in the Palm Beach, Florida area, I highly recommend that you take a tour of this incredibly creative home. There is lots more to see (I actually missed some of the rooms!). The Kips Bay Palm Beach Show House will be open to the public from February 23 through March 17, 2024.

For almost 50 years, prominent interior designers have collaborated to collect over $29 million for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club of New York City and Palm Beach County. The club offers educational and developmental programs for young people in the city.

    Kelly Elko,
    Wonderful Coverage of the Fabulous 2024 Kips Bay Palm Beach Show House.
    From your Lovely video, we see that you covered every single Space at the Show House except the Amazing “Tent Folly” on the Roof Terrace.
    We also read that you included every Designer and Landscaper in the Show House except our design company, Allan Reyes Interiors Palm Beach.
    We have been working in Palm Beach for over 30 years and this is our 16th Show House. Perhaps you missed the “Tent Folly” on the Roof Terrace and need to take another look.
    Give us a call and we will give you a VIP Tour of our very popular “Tent Folly.”
    We are also the first design Space in the Journal. My partner Tom Miller and I also designed and built the house (2006-2008) and we lived there until 2014. The Villa Aura was featured in Architectural Digest in the September 2009 issue “Designers’ Own Homes. If you want to include that in future articles.
