    Default Pasadena Showcase House of Design

    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.

    That is awful. I can find a better way to spend $40.

    I don't mind some of those rooms. In fact, I quite like the gray and purple together for some reason.

    Dizzying, nauseating. It looks like someone's grandma dropped acid and started decorating.

    Well not a bad starting point..but really? White furniture and white/light carpets..do these people EVER clean for themselves? Probably not ..fuckers.

    Get some fucking color in there also(besides puke green with a dash of purple). And whomever keeps designing white furniture and white floors should have to clean said floors and furniture in hell for all of eternity.

    Aside from the lack of color and the 'whiteness' issue..not so horrible really.

    I'll admit it. But can't not add that half the shit in that room needs to GO.

    I really like the bathroom and the purple bed. And it's kinda neat that they used a giant Spirograph on the ceiling. Everything else is not for me.

    Happy trails to you...until we meet again.
    I love & miss you Dad.

    I like the Spirograph idea too - it works for some reason. Everything else is either meh or hideous - the green/brown 70s print daybed is especially vile. Love the staircase and tiled hall floor.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Too busy...and what is with the Spirograph art on the ceiling? I'm usually into that sort of crafty thing, but it seems out of place in that setting.
