After one of the most brutal winters on record here in Kansas City spring has finally arrived. This spring has been absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. I like to think it is our reward for putting up with such a gross winter. Since we are finally able to emerge from hibernation, I was excited to get out of the house and visit one of my favorite springtime events in K.C., the Symphony Designers’ Showhouse.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary, this year’s Showhouse took place in a grand Georgian Revival built in 1922 and situated on picturesque Loose Park. Area landscapers, Interior Designers, Interior Design students, and home stores show off their designs and product throughout the home.
I am highlighting a few spaces in the home that caught my eye, just a peek of what you will find in this luxurious home.
The Symphony Designers’ Showhouse runs through Sunday, May 12 and I suggest checking it out. I just gave you a tiny peek, there is so much more to see! For me, the Showhouse carries a lot of nostalgia as I have been going since I was very young with my mother. My love of interiors runs deep people! I have been thrilled to tour some of the best of Kansas City’s stately older homes by attending this event over the years. I have also picked up several design ideas gathering inspiration from the talented designers who put in a lot of time a care on the spaces that they are tasked with transforming.
I was very pleased with some of spaces this year that gave off a fresh, current and perhaps more attainable vibe. While I do love looking at glam, elegant spaces, I find myself drawn more to those that are bright, stylish and comfortable. The spaces that welcome you in, where you just “see” yourself living. I saw some of these spaces in this home this year and I hope its a trend we continue to see and to watch evolve.
If you love interior design, architecture of old homes, or just want something different to do this weekend, check out the Symphony Designers’ Showhouse which benefits the Kansas City Symphony (yet another artistic powerhouse that Kansas City is fortunate to have!)
