For Palm Beach designer Gil Walsh’s premier showing at New York’s renowned Kips Bay Decorator Show House, benefitting the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, she will be featuring the painting, “Cr24 Chromium,” by renowned contemporary abstract artist Nancy Lorenz.

“I was so moved by Nancy’s work,” says Walsh, who has created distinctive interiors as diverse as the office of the CEO of a major television network, an historic Palm Beach mansion and a Relais & Chateaux resort, not to mention countless private residences and yachts in Palm Beach, New York, Martha’s Vineyard and Pittsburgh. “Her ability to utilize precious materials such as gold leaf and mother of pearl in such lyrical, painterly ways is the essence of modern luxury. For my little jewel box of a space at Kips Bay, this was exactly what I was looking for!”

Lorenz is well known for her inspired collaborations for the worlds of high fashion and interior design. Blurring the distinction between fine and decorative art, she has created extraordinary pieces for labels such as Donna Karan, Gucci, Chanel and Bottega Veneta. Her artistry has also been championed by interior designers William T. Georgis, Peter Marino, Bill Sofield and Michael Smith. Recently, the Council of Fashion Designers of America employed a dramatic Lorenz motif for the invitation to their annual Fashion Awards gala, known as “the Oscars of Fashion Design,” this coming June.

The Kips Bay Decorator Show House will open to the public on May 12th at The Carlton Townhouse, 19 East 61st Street (between Madison and Fifth Ave.)
