The hottest design event of autumn, The Second Annual Kips Bay Decorators Show, Dallas, opens to the public today, September 24. Dallas is the third city to host the event; other iterations are taking place in Palm Beach and New York. Each philanthropic event supports local nonprofits including Dwell with Dignity of North Texas and The Crystal Charity Ball, as well as the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, which offers enrichment programs for children in New York City. .
The 2021 Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas will be held at 5138 Deloache Avenue, a six-bedroom Georgian house nestled in the Sunnybrook Estate of Old Preston Hollow. The opulent property sits on 1.4 acres of well-maintained land and was listed for lease in 2020 for $ 36,000 per month.
This year, 26 of Dallas’ most acclaimed interior designers, architects and landscapers had the chance to transform an assigned space in the home over a seven-week period.
Next month, design enthusiasts will be able to tour the reimagined home in person or via a 3D virtual video. Visits to the Show House must be booked in advance, and all visitors are required to wear masks and follow social distancing protocols.
This year’s Honorary Presidents are Jamie Drake and Bunny Williams; The co-chairs are Steele Marcoux, Jan Showers, Jean Liu and Chad Dorsey; and the vice presidents are Trish Sheats and Laura Lee Clark Falconer.
