Top interior designers will come to Dallas in September to transform an Old Preston Hollow home, and you’ll be able to tour it for charity. The Kips Bay Decorator Show House first appeared in Dallas last year when dozens of designers worked together to transform an 11,476-square-foot luxury home.
From Sept. 24 to Oct. 24, Dallasites can purchase tickets and gander at the elaborate interior of the transformed luxury home. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, Dwell with Dignity and The Crystal Charity Ball.
The designers for this year’s house have yet to be named but will be announced in mid-July, wrote spokeswoman Bailey Longcore in an email. Last year, the event included 14 Dallas-Fort Worth area designers.
The project will take place at 5138 Deloache Ave., an 11,259-square-foot home that sits on 1.44 acres. The home has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two half-bathrooms, multiple living spaces, two kitchens, a theater, a sunroom, a wine cellar and a pool. Designers can begin work on the home July 5, Longcore said in an email.
The Kips Bay Decorator Show House began in New York City when supporters of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club worked to raise money for an after-school program, according to the organization’s website. The fundraiser now takes place in three locations: New York City, Palm Beach, Fla., and Dallas. Since its inception in 1973, the event has raised more than $25 million for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.
