The inaugural Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas is bringing together 25 top designers to let their creative juices flow in Old Preston Hollow. A sprawling property plays host to the designers’ work, with every space dressed to perfection — including landscaping and outdoor areas, of course. For health precautions, visitors can purchase tickets in two-hour increments; social distancing and masks are of course required.
