Dunstan Designs Returns as Design Sponsor for 2010 American Red Cross Designer Show House
January 15, 2010
WEST PALM BEACH (Jan. 15, 2010) - Dunstan Designs president and principal designer Christopher Dunstan has again been invited to participate in the American Red Cross Designers' Show House, which will be open to the public Jan. 21-Feb. 20, 2010. Now in its 34th season, the popular home and garden event that benefits the Greater Palm Beach Area Chapter of the American Red Cross will feature 18 interior and exterior spaces executed by 15 top interior designers, architects and landscape designers from around the country.
"It's an honor to participate in such a prestigious design event," said Dunstan, a native of Jupiter, Fla. "And everyone involved is working especially hard to help support the American Red Cross following the recent earthquake devastation in Haiti. Thousands of people still need food, water and medical care."
The location for this year's Show House is one high above the West Palm Beach skyline in CityPlace South Tower. In two of four penthouse apartments at 550 Okeechobee Boulevard, Dunstan Designs has outfitted expansive terraces in opposing styles: Unit 13 represents a tropical color garden, as is popular among area snowbirds seeking a taste of the tropics, while Unit 11 offers a calming al fresco lounge with a touch of Northeastern coastal sensibility.
"There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all garden," Dunstan added. "Our clients are creative, and each environment is tailored to their idea of paradise."
Dunstan Designs sponsors include: Authentic Provence, Island Exposure Photography, Living Color Garden Center, Maine Cottage and Pioneer Linens.
The exclusive Preview Party, to be held on Jan. 20, is one of the most exclusive and well-attended events in the Palm Beaches. Previous celebrity attendees include Rod Stewart, Carolyne Roehm, Daniel Boulud, Lilly Pulitzer, John Loring, Mario Buatta and Charlotte Moss.
