The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County will feature the work of nine Palm Beach County interior designers in "Interior Design: The Florida Room," an exhibition of vignettes that interpret the classic Florida living space.

The exhibition will open with a preview party on Thursday, January 30, 2014 from 5:30-7:30 p.m., and will continue through March 29. Tickets to the preview party are $10 for general admission and free to Cultural Council members. The exhibition, which opens to the public on January 31, is free.

"We want to offer a variety of arts experiences to our community and to our members," said Rena Blades, president and CEO of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. "Interior design is very much an art form and the talented designers that call Palm Beach County home have contributed to our quality of life. This exhibition highlights the ubiquitous Florida Room with eight unique interpretations that are sure to delight our audience."

The Florida Room is a distinct space in Florida homes that were built starting in the 1950s. The typical architectural style of the room takes full advantage of natural sunlight and year-round moderate temperatures, by generally having an abundance of windows, along with some protection from the elements. Florida room dwellers can enjoy a good view without being bothered by insects, heat or even the occasional cold spell.

Joseph Pubillones, a Palm Beach architect and designer, whose work has been featured on HGTV's "Designer Challenge," "Open House TV," and in several design magazines, is the guest curator of the exhibition. "The Florida Room has become the favored place for casual entertaining," says Pubillones. He adds, "Today, Florida rooms can be quite elaborate, but for me there is nothing more comfortable than having a favorite room to read, relax or even sip a Mojito in."

The participating designers are Stephen Mooney, Susan Morgan, Frank Randolph, Allan Reyes, Angela Reynolds, Nickie Siegel and Judy Weiss, Gil Walsh and William Wright.

"We have dedicated an entire exhibition to the Florida Room as it is an iconic representation of how we live in South Florida," says Cultural Council Manager of Artist Services, Nichole M. Hickey.

Lectures by the artists featured in the exhibition are scheduled for 3 p.m. on February 11 and March 11
