Metropolitan Home magazine recently celebrated the grand opening of the LA|Open House: Modern by Design showhouse, located in West Hollywood. The showhouse was created by ten of the country's top interior designers, to showcase their unique interpretation of modern living and design. The designers involved included such notables as Barbara Barry, Xorin Balbes, Michael Berman, Fernando Diaz, Julie Eizenberg, Jarret Hedborg, Antonia Hutt, Kerry Joyce, Michaela Scherrer, and Marjorie Skouras.
The house is open to the public to tour next weekend (April 20th and 21st), and all proceeds from ticket sales ($25 each) will benefit local non-profit organizations Project Angel Food and the UCLA Aids Institute. Here is a link for more info. It's a great chance to see and be inspired by some amazing design visions first hand, as well as to help those in need.
