34th Annual Decorators' Show House

If you're in or near Baltimore, it's that time of year again (and no, I'm not talking about Preakness. That was last weekend). What I am referring to is the 34th Annual Decorators' Show House, a benefit to raise money for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. This year the house is located in the Woodholme community of Baltimore County and, like last year, it once again takes place in a Tudor-style home.

Built in 1925, the estate's 24 rooms are transformed by 30 interior and landscape designers. A few interesting features the house boasts are a spiral stair case, sun porch, bedroom turned alchemist's chamber, a purple and black star-themed nursery, and my personal favorite, a wine cellar hidden in a dining room wall; a nod to the fact that the home was built during the prohibition.  

For the curious, the photos above are just a small peak inside the mansion's walls, but if you're local, consider taking the tour to support a good cause. Also worth noting, I heard that almost all the furnishings in the house are for sale as well. Tickets in advance are $20 and the event will run until May 30th. For tickets or more information, click here. And for anyone looking to relocate, someone with a substantial wad of cash that is, the house is now up for sale for $950,000.
