An extraordinary contemporary home in Centreville is expected to draw thousands of visitors this autumn as the setting for the Delaware Designer Showhouse. The inspirational Showhouse will feature the creativity and talents of nearly 20 local interior designers and landscapers, with proceeds benefitting The Delaware Contemporary and four other nonprofit partners. The Showhouse will be open Thursdays through Sundays beginning September 22 and ending October 16. Tickets used the weekend of September 29 to October 2 benefit The Delaware Contemporary’s exhibitions and programs!
The 4,400 square foot custom home was built in 1974 on 3.5 woodland acres with two flow-through ponds, and includes a welcoming courtyard entrance with a new pergola, a stunning new kitchen, and entertaining and dining spaces, all with an eye towards bringing the woodland setting indoors. The homeowners’ unique contemporary art collection has served as a muse for designers throughout the home. Many local artists are featured, including Ed Loper, Vicki Vinton, Graham Dougherty, Ken Mabrey, Jon Mort, and Caroline Chen.
