The Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Palm Beach Will Give You Design Inspo For Days

This Plantation Style Home in South End West Palm Beach Neighborhood Features 19 Award Winning Design Firms


The Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach, the third annual Florida iteration of the esteemed Show House in New York City, has officially launched, benefitting both Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. Featuring 19 of the nation’s most prominent design firms, the Show House — owned by famed interior designer Lars Bolander — opened to the public Saturday, Feb. 1 through Sunday, March 1.


“The Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach has become a highly anticipated event since first opening its doors in 2017 and we are thrilled to return for a third year,” said James Druckman, President and CEO of the New York Design Center, and President of the Board of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. “This year’s incredible talent is comprised of local, national, and international designers, and we are so grateful for their support in raising critical programming funds for the 17,000 children served by both organizations.” 


In just under three months, the group of talented designers completely transformed each room of the remarkable 8,751-square-foot home inspired by South African and Dutch architecture. Affectionately dubbed Bamboo Hill, the main home, located at 260 Palmetto Lane in West Palm Beach’s South End neighborhood, features four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a great room with vaulted ceilings and french doors that open up to an expansive loggia, and a spacious kitchen with an adjacent outdoor dining terrace. The home’s large master suite offers sprawling garden and pool views. The estate also boasts two guest houses, a pool house, and an expansive private garden with lush tropical flora for the ultimate outdoor living and entertaining experience.


Design enthusiasts and novices alike will be inspired by the level of creativity and imagination on display through unexpected wall treatments, beautiful furnishings and an array of bold colors. Here’s what to expect in each space:

Lake Worth Beach-based Jobe Lopez of Lopez Group, Inc. drew inspiration for the home’s front garden from the vineyards at the Klein Constantia Estate in South Africa. Luscious greenery and native Floridian plants open up the façade of the house, while cypress line the exterior walls. Two olive trees alongside the front door offer a warm welcome, while the trunks of palm trees positioned along the front of the house were painted white to elevate the plantation-style architecture of the home.
