Cosentino Group is honored to sponsor the fourth annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach, a stunning transformation of a Mediterranean-style home, shaped by leading interior designers and featuring best-in-class brands — all benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County and the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. This marks the second time Cosentino has sponsored the Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach, following longstanding participation in the celebrated Kips Bay Decorator Show House New York.
From April 8 to May 9, 2021, a Mediterranean-style home in West Palm Beach’s South End neighborhood will serve as the backdrop for this year’s event. The 4,400-square-foot space has been completely reimagined by 20 award-winning design firms located around the country. Luminary spaces, including the kitchen, utility room, bedroom and bathroom, showcase the very latest from Cosentino’s ultra-compact Dekton® and Silestone® quartz surfaces.
“Our longstanding alliance with the Kips Bay Decorator Show House is so close to the Cosentino family’s heart,” says Patty Dominguez, VP of A&D Sales for Cosentino North America. “With our Americas headquarters based just outside Miami, participating in the Palm Beach edition of this esteemed Show House is such a natural fit. We’re so grateful for the opportunity to forge even deeper partnerships with designers both from this region and beyond, and look forward to seeing how our materials channel their distinct styles.”
Kitchen and Breakfast Room: Mark Williams and Niki Papadopoulos, Mark Williams Design
The kitchen and breakfast room maintains the home’s Mediterranean aesthetic, which served as a foundation for Silestone Trendspotter alum Mark Williams and Niki Papadopoulos of Atlanta-based Mark Williams Design. “We have always been enamored with the beautiful textures and colors of tile this architectural style is known for, so we wanted to nod to that tradition,” says Williams. “Kitchens are the central activity zones for families today, so we need materials to be great looking, and still hold up to a beating.” The designers chose ultra-durable, zero-maintenance Dekton Entzo: “It has all of the beautiful warm tones and veining that you might get from a natural white marble, but without the issues of staining and etching,” says Williams.
Utility Room: Lisa Hynes and Heather Weisz, HW Interiors
Hailing from South Florida, Heather Weisz and Lisa Hynes embraced the phrase ‘laundry meets luxury’ for the utility room. Incorporating clean and timeless design, the room features a custom tile design and many unexpected surprises. “We chose beautiful yet durable materials that would hold up to the daily use of a busy young family,” said Hynes and Weisz. “We specified Silestone Iconic White in a suede finish for the countertop and backsplash. It remains one of the most durable, consistent surfaces on the market, which is perfect for a utilitarian space that gets a lot of use, like the laundry room.”
Primary Bathroom and Closet: Nicole White, Nicole White Designs
South Florida-based designer Nicole White created a space that is glamorous, functional, and unapologetically bold. “The overall aesthetic for both spaces was an Afro Luxe sensibility. We wanted a heavy emphasis on a design inspired by bold Afrocentric art, travel, luxury fabrics/textiles, stones/tiles, and exquisite details,” says White. The designer chose Dekton Kelya in a matte finish for the shower walls, sharing, “We knew we would need to marry materials in the most unusual and unexpected ways to wow clients who again, have seen it all. And we settled on a product like Dekton on the shower walls for the statement it would make along with the minimum grout lines and overall durability.”
Bedroom, Bathroom, and Closet Space: Nina Magon, Nina Magon Studio
Houston-based designer Nina Magon merged classical and futuristic design to create her version of a Palm Beach interior: “I wanted to bring a bit of my European design references — in this case, Italian — to Palm Beach for my Contessa’s bedroom, inspired by a historic Gio Ponti Villa in Milan,” says Magon. As a member of the brand’s esteemed design ambassador program, the Cosentino Design Alliance, Nina leveraged her deep knowledge of the brand’s materials with the design of a custom built-in platform bed frame constructed from Dekton Taga. True to Nina’s aesthetic, it’s a bold, sophisticated statement — demonstrating the unlimited applications of the material.
