This year’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach immerses visitors into the sensory wonderland of South Florida, from its watery vistas and verdant tropical gardens to its effervescent social scene. A team of 21 interior designers and architects turned their creative talents to the sixth-annual show house, a Mediterranean-style estate set in West Palm Beach’s Northwood Shores neighborhood that overlooks the Lake Worth Lagoon.

The waterfront home, a first for the Kips Bay Show House franchise, conjures the joyful, leisurely spirit of the locale, with Florida’s trademark riotous colors living harmoniously among refined neutral schemes accented with warm wicker and rattan. Throughout the more than 9,000-square-foot house, transportive rooms whisk visitors away to lush destinations—from an Italian palazzo in Studio Thomas James’ limestone-clad entryway to the French Riviera in Amanda Lindroth’s aqua blue great room, the African art scene in Delia Kenza’s second-floor landing to The Bahamas in Lindley Arthur’s tangerine powder room.


Paladino Rudd Interior Design’s “Silent Mode”

“Cell phones can be such a distraction in life, and we wanted to create a sanctuary that gave visitors permission to take time for themselves and relax,” says Allison Paladino. With design partner Zita Rudd, the duo behind Palm Beach-based Paladino Rudd Interior Design reimagined the primary bath into a serene, spa-like escape. The team clad the walls and floor with Cosentino’s textural Dekton Rem, which is accented with brown veining and hints of gold. Bleached walnut vanities with recessed backlit mirrors, hand-crafted by RG Woodworks, along with hand-painted Ricci Studio wallpaper depicting vines and geometric flowers, invite nature inside. The hand-blown glass chandelier by Ochre hangs like a celestial canopy over the Kohler soaking tub, with a soothing water feature that becomes a natural soundtrack for the space. The sequin-studded floral painting Jarden Chromed by artist Stanley Casselman and fashion designer Naeem Khan hanging above the navy velvet banquette lends luminous yet understated glamour. The Roman shades are by The Shade Store.
