|Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach|
This space is from the just opened Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach. It caught my eye because this next week I will be putting together my newly tiled lanai. Although my lanai is completely under roof and screened, I have been very sensitive to only using materials designed for the outdoors - resin wicker furniture, Sunbrella fabric, and the like.
I have a pet peeve about designer show house rooms that are completely impractical. Although this space is very pretty, even assuming outdoor fabrics have been used, so much of it is not meant for the outdoors. Especially the wood furniture. With the heavy rains we get and the humidity, this loggia would not look like this in short order. It brings to mind a NSO Decorator Show House in DC years ago where they had put a king sized bed in the living room. A whole new spin on entertaining - LOL.
