Since Sundays are all about relaxing and inspiration for me, I wanted to share with you three unique showhouses that will soon be opening around the country.
#1 Santa Barbara Design House & Gardens
Featuring some of the most notable designers in the business — including Mary McDonald, David Phoenix, Mark Weaver and Lulu DeKwiatkowski of LULU DK — the Santa Barbara Design House is one not to be missed! The project is also sponsored by Traditional Home and will benefit the Junior League of Santa Barbara. I can’t wait to see what these talented individuals conjure up in this house! Tours will be available September 13th – October 7th. Visit sbdhg.com to learn more and watch a preview video of the space.
#2 Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House – Rosemary Beach, Florida
If you’re planning a vacation to 30-A this summer, do not miss the “Ultimate Beach House” in Rosemary. This Gulf retreat was designed by Erika Powell of Urban Grace. You may have seen her recently in Southern Living as one of five hot, new designers to watch. Based out of nearby Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, this girl definitely has a flair for all things seaside! The Ultimate Beach House opens in just a few weeks on June 29! Tours will run through early October. You can get all the details here.
#3 Cashiers Designer Showhouse – Cashiers, North Carolina
If the mountains are more your thing, not to fear, there’s a showhouse for that, too! The prestigious Cashiers Showhouse features a wide variety of designers from around the country. I’m proud to say that this year my good friend Kathryn Greeley will be showcasing her work in one of the rooms. I’ll be sure to keep you updated on her progress, share some pictures and let you know more about her design when the house is complete. Tours from this home will take place August 18 – September 2.
