Designers from Dallas and across the nation teamed up to transform an Old Preston Hollow home into the inaugural Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas.

Kips Bay Decorator Show House began in New York City in the ’70s as a charity-benefitting initiative. The Dallas Show House is at 5828 Woodland Drive and currently stands on the market at $5.75 million with Faisal Halum of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.

With 11,476 square feet, the historic home in the Woodland Estates neighborhood has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and three-half-bathrooms. Each room was redesigned by different design firms or artists.

Doniphan Moore, a Dallas-based designer, was in charge of the primary bathroom and dressing suite and called his redesigned project “Bathed in Moonlight. He chose de Gournay wallpaper and cabinets made by The Container Store.

“I wanted to give it a personality and an identity,” Moore told the Dallas Morning News. He made the space unique, from the hanging clothes in the closet to the skin care items on the table next to the bathtub.

Moore borrowed clothes from his sister and mother to make the space appear lived-in.

Chad Dorsey Design redesigned the main kitchen and nearby prep kitchen.

The 27 designers, architects and landscape architects come from Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and Austin as well as throughout the United States, PaperCity reported. They had around 11 weeks to transform the Provence-inspired estate.
