Showhouse Palette

I am imagining the room as a jewel box of copper, gold and ivory...

Showhouse Invitation

I was invited to participate in the 2010 Breast Cancer Showhouse. While I can't share all of the details (you'll have to buy a ticket and see it for yourself this June) I can tell you that I will be designing the ladies sitting room, which is located just down the hall from a beautiful private ballroom. This year's Showhouse is a distinguished brick and stone mansion with a breathtaking view of Lake Michigan. In its current “before” state this home would be worth the price of admission, so the finished product is bound to be a showstopper.

Over the coming weeks I’ll share some of the extensive behind-the-scenes effort that goes into transforming what is now an empty bedroom into a luxurious retreat for the lady of the house.
