The Making Of the American Red Cross Designers’ Show House

RChouse (1 of 1)

Once upon a time there was a magnificent home. Unfortunately, we didn’t live in it but we were invited to visit again, again and again, and thus stepping into the world of the American Red Cross Designers’ Show House. Thirty-nine years ago, the Palm Beaches – Treasure Coast Region chapter of the American Red Cross launched a creative fundraiser to build awareness for its organization. Every year one lucky and historic home is chosen for an extreme makeover conducted by a select group of interior and exterior designers. Over a three-month span, the house undergoes intense renovations. Once the main stage of renovations is complete, the designers, who are given creative liberty, arrive with their teams to begin prep work for the decor.  The number of designers depends on the size of the house but with this year’s 7,000-plus-square-foot home, 20 designers were involved.

red cross show houseThe 39th American Red Cross Designers’ Show House takes place in a historic 1920s home, officially known as La Florentia and nicknamed The Birthday Cake House. Sherman Childs, an associate of architect Addison Mizner, was commissioned by Lake Worth banker Earl Reed to build the home in 1925. Reed lived there till the mid-1930s. Childs, who was originally from Minnesota and moved to Lake Worth in 1912, also built the Lake Worth City Hall. Around 1955, Upton Close, a foreign and news correspondent during WWII who hosted a weekly Sunday political commentary called Close-Ups of the News for NBC, bought the house for his wife’s birthday. Rumors have it that his wife Margaret Fretter Nye actually paid for the home. La Florentia is typical Mediterranean style, and yes, there are lots of birthday-like innuendos. Two swirled pillars, similar to candles, frame the front doors, while the interior walls have thick pats of white plaster to resemble icing. The owners in the 1980s installed the stained-glass window of a birthday cake near the front door.

Over the past three months, M&V has documented the renovation and design progress of La Florentia, as captured by Danielle Gouletas.

“The layout of the kitchen gave us ample opportunities to create a work station – located around the large island and kitchen equipment – and the fun station, near the table and bar. There was necessary roof work, so we incorporated it into the design with trusses. It’s overall a soft white room with pops of accents.” -Melissa Guerra.

    Over 65,000 nude celeb images, 100,000 total pics. The pics you
    want to see but they didn’t necessarily approve!
    The tone of the site is fairly trashy in the best possible way: You’ll see body fluids, investigations of the smellier parts
    of the body, and very deep penetration. The tone of these videos is decidedly raunchy, with sweaty pits, close-ups on rimming,
    and wet sloppy makeout sessions. Whichever video you click, you’ll get a hot heaping helping of strength, fur, beards,
    and sweaty masculine sex. Welcome to Girls of Oz
    Live Video Sex! We just hope the site stops making shit like
    Girls Under Arrest. The We Like Girls Project features unscripted lesbian scenes,
    Transfixed showcases trans performers (however, it seems mostly
    shot for the cis male gaze), and Lady Gonzo features hardcore scenes that put the women first.
    We also reviewed sites that come with all kinds
    of Asians, from Thai and Vietnamese to Chinese and even Mongolian girls.

    The site uses outdated Flash video, and downloads come in the even more outdated WMV format.
