The showhouse included standout design in every room, that merged the old with the new. Forty distinguished inte- rior designers transformed the mansion’s 18,000 square feet to its original majestic grandeur, but with a modern twist. Imported European fireplaces, black wal- nut-paneled walls, carved wood-
en chinoiserie medallions and rare Flint Faience tiles are just a few of the opulent details that made this showhouse a standout in design. Bold color stories were in evidence throughout, and the diversity of design was shown in four baths, from the master bath to an outdoor garden oasis. ■
“I LOVED THE CHALLENGE OF TURNING AN OUTDOOR OPEN PORCH INTO A FULLY PLUMBED AND OPERATING GARDEN BATH, EMBRACING ALL THE ORIGINAL ARCHITECTURE AND ADDING MODERN ELEMENTS.” —K r i s t e n S h e l l e n b e r g e r
A porch becomes a garden bath by Kristen Shellenberger . Modern elements like the Kohler Veil tub and Modern Art sink add contrast to the traditional architecture.
