American Red Cross 2009 Designers’ Show House

The 2009 cast of designers drew inspiration from a multitude of influences from the far reaches of modern Morocco and Northern Africa and the grandeur of the French Riviera, to insight drawn directly from the original architecture and history of the house itself. Incorporating a feel of ultra-modernity, the Show House features for the first time, a Media Room embracing all the elegance and luxury available in the world of home electronics and entertaining.

Guests in attendance dined on a gourmet treats catered by Ann Z Gourmet Catering while enjoying specialty Bombay Sapphire cocktails provided by Bacardi USA, Inc.  More than 200 raffle tickets were sold for lavish prizes such as a luxury handbag donated by Danielle Ortiz and a finely-crafted bracelet donated by Valentin Magro.  All proceeds from this evening’s event went to the Greater Palm Beach Area Chapter of the American
Red Cross.
