Yesterday, I toured the Junior League of Detroit’s Designers’ Show House, which happened to be at the 1922 Fisher Mansion in the Boston Edison district of Detroit. The house, currently owned by actor Hill Harper, is the largest home in the city at 16,000 square feet. It has been under renovation for the past year and now is presented for tours over the next month with 40 different rooms decorated by different designers. The artistic stimulation was top-notch…from the historical original details in the home to the newly chosen artwork in every room, there was so much to take in. So many layers of pattern and texture, it will take more than one blog post to get through it all. Here are some of my favorites from the first floor:
This room was the first of many on the tour to use this vivid emerald green, along with black and white accents, which really reminded me of The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. Touches of gold gave it a sophisticated feeling. I really liked this fitted slip cover to create an elegant side table.
The symmetry of this image reminded me of my own work, so it was exciting to see it used as part of this beautiful room.
