Kips Bay Decorator “Mansion of Northwood” Fundraiser – Palm Beach

Posted by Lorea Thomson on Friday, March 18th, 2022 at 12:42pm.

The worldwide recognized Kips Bay Decorator Show House is a highly esteemed design event. The selected home is in West Palm Beach’s Old Northwood Historic District as its 2022 location in the Palm Beach area. Premier youth organization Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club host the event. The Show House will be open to the public for one month beginning April 3, 2022.

The Show House doubles as the nation’s leading design event of the year and Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club’s top fundraiser. The ''Mansion of Northwood'' as it is locally known, was built in 1923 by Orrin Randolph, one of the original Northwood developers, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The home’s main house is comprised of four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and two primary suites. The foyer features the home’s original open staircase, which leads into a grand living area with tall ceilings, original oak flooring, fireplace, and large windows with stunning views of the gardens and grounds. There is also a large family room, formal dining room, and a large chef's kitchen in addition to a first-floor media room and office space. The estate sits on a 20,000 square foot triple lot with gated entry to a 4-car garage and 2-bedroom guest house.

Leading interior designers have been invited to transform individual rooms before opening to the public for viewing and fundraising. The fundraising will benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs. Since 1915, Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club has focused on improving and enhancing the lives of New York City’s children who are economically, socially, or recreationally disadvantaged. Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County, founded in 1971, is a not-for-profit youth development organization dedicated to promoting the educational, vocational, health, leadership, and character of children in a safe, nurturing environment.

Each year acclaimed interior designers transform a luxury Manhattan home into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art, and technology. This event began in 1973 when several resolute supporters of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club launched the Decorator Show House to raise critical funds for much-needed after-school and enrichment programs for New York City children.  Over the course of four decades, this project has grown into a must-see event for thousands of design enthusiasts and is renowned for sparking interior design trends throughout the world.

The Show House receives 15,000 guests each year from across the country. Since its inception, the Show House has raised over $26 million for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.
