The Lake Worth Herald, Part 2 of 3, the Red Cross Designer's Show House (Lake Worth 'Birthday Cake Castle')

In Part 2 of 3, Mary Lindsey's special assignment to The Lake Worth Herald continues on the Red Cross Designer's Show House (aka, the 'Birthday Cake Castle'). Here is an excerpt:
Melissa and Noe Guerra of NXG Studio in North Palm beach brought their extraordinary creativity and experience for the 10th time to this year’s Red Cross Designers’ Show House at the Birthday Cake Castle. Working alongside the architects and general contractors who were tasked with the total renovation of this space, Melissa and Noe began their effort with a contribution to the project from the Lady of the Castle with her vintage pale turquoise MixMaster. The same color is artfully sprinkled about in the selection of china and the collection of glass bottles. Every piece of equipment is top of the line as one might expect, but what these eyes had never seen is a microwave tucked so conveniently in a drawer on the island. The countertops and the island are topped with Carrera marble from Keith Granite and fabricated by Lake Worth’s own Michael Clahane of Palm Beach Kitchen and Bath. Locals know Michael as the First Gentleman of Lake Worth, husband to our Mayor, Pam Triolo.
In this issue there are 21 photographs (3 pages) highlighting the art and design work done at the Lake Worth 'Birthday Cake Castle'. Here is one:
