The 411 on Upcoming Decorator Show Houses
Decorator show houses are an amazing source of inspiration. And also a fabulous medium for interior designers to proactively give back to their community. In a quick-fix-oriented world, the importance of these events continues to rise. They provide ample opportunity for advocacy and fundraising for a plethora of good causes, from cancer research to education.
From NYC to Pasadena, these upcoming design showhouses do just that. They use design and art to fight injustice. What better way to celebrate artists’ and designers’ power than to use it for positive social change?
