Interior decorators lend their skills to Maryland show house initiative
on Thursday,May 06,2010 00:05
For the 34th consecutive year, interior designers from across Maryland gathered in Pikesville to redecorate the Baltimore Symphony Associates Decorators' Show House.
Approximately 50 designers and construction workers renovated, decorated and furnished the 24 rooms of the Woodholme estate, which will open for tours next week. All proceeds from the walk-throughs will benefit the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's education programs.
The Tudor-style home was built in 1925 during the prohibition era, and features a sliding liquor cabinet hidden behind a bookcase and a concealed wine cellar that was built into the dining room wall. The house also includes four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, a library, a sun porch as well as an alchemists' cellar. Furthermore, a mural detailing the home's history is painted on one wall.
Designers who worked on the home include Laura C. Kimball, Russell Slouck from Gatehouse Interiors and Donna Melvin from Great Expectations Design.
Tickets for the event are $20 in advance and $25 at the door, and the show house will be open May 8 through the end of the month.
