he first-ever Kips Bay Decorator Show House
in Dallas kicked off in grand style at the $5.75 million, 5828 Woodland French manse. A total of 27 design firms
spent 11 weeks concepting and installing the rooms. The New York-based philanthropic effort transformed the 11,746 square-foot house in to an array of handcrafted wallpaper, vintage furniture and art. “Being in one of Dallas’ more affluent neighborhoods, the house had the ideal space,” spokesperson Shannon White says. “Over half of our designers are DFW-based, showing the vast design talent in the city. In addition, Dallas is known for its philanthropic efforts and charity scene.” Funds raised during the event will benefit the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club, Dwell With Dignity
and the Crystal Charity Ball
. If the house sells in the next six months, 10% will be donated to the charities.
