The annual Pasadena Showcase House of Design draws tens of thousands of people, this year to a 1917 Italian Renaissance Revival by G. Lawrence Stimson, the architect of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses headquarters. Admission is $30 to $40 per person, but we have a free preview of what designers have done inside. Here, the dining room by Interior Devine.
Westlake Village interior designer Wendy Weiner created this intimate Lady’s Office in one of the ground-floor rooms just off the back garden. The Asian elements, including the antique Japanese screen and Tibetan area rug, give the space its timeless appeal.
Venice designer Amy Devault of Devault Interior Design created a library that manages to be formal but not stuffy. The walls are upholstered. The Robert Allen button-tufted sofas are upholstered in oxblood silk mohair.
Los Angeles interior designer David Dalton created one of the most exciting rooms in the house, a Young Adult’s Bedroom inspired by Dalton’s love of all things fashion. The space is intense — not so much to relax the senses as to set fire to them. The furnishings are upholstered in Trina Turk’s custom outdoor fabrics by Schumacher.
The Debutante's Bedroom created by Design & Style looks likethe punky, funky bedroom of a rebellious little aristocrat. The mix of new and vintage furnishings, the oversized pink upholsteredheadboard and the burgundy draped canopy add up to a theatrical, "Gossip Girl" attitude. The ceiling is a floral wallpaper by Osborne & Little.
