The design and philanthropy communities in Dallas have always been strong and the Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas 2021 made it even more evident.
This year marked the second time the event has taken place in Dallas. (The city’s inaugural show house debuted in 2020.) Attendance increased by 3,000, with around 11,000 people walking through the doors of a Georgian-style home in Old Preston Hollow to see the creations of 25 designers .
With such a large participation, the 2021 show house raised $ 1,230,000. Ticket proceeds will go to the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, as well as the Crystal Charity Ball and Dwell with Dignity in Dallas.
Local charities were chosen to ensure the proceeds help those in need here.
The Crystal Charity Ball has identified eight grantees for 2021 and has committed funds for organizations such as the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center, the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, and the Dallas Symphony Association Inc.
Dwell with Dignity is installing new interiors for Dallas families who need a better living environment, but can’t afford it. Once again, design and charity meet in a powerful way.
Supporters of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club started the first show house in 1973 in Manhattan to raise vital funds for after-school and enrichment programs for children in New York City. For more than four decades, the Show House has been a must-attend event for design enthusiasts renowned for igniting interior design trends around the world.
In 2017, the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club expanded the brand to Palm Beach and then launched the Decorator Show House in Dallas in fall 2020.
Now that funds from the Dallas 2021 event are set to do good things in Dallas and beyond, the converted 11,195-square-foot show home will soon become someone’s new home. Its beauty goes beyond the updates made and the rooms reimagined, as it is now a residence that has helped improve the situation for many people.
The philanthropic aspect of the event was an important part of what drew Allie Beth Allman & Associates, the luxury real estate brokerage boutique, to get involved in the design showcase.
Allie Beth Allman & Associates sells more homes priced at $ 2 million and more than any other brokerage, according to statistics from Multiple Listing Service.
