2012 Indy Showhouse

Happy to be back after a very long and eventful day yesterday! I woke up early to catch the DSID (Dayton Society of Interior Designers) tour bus to Indianapolis where we attended the 2012 Indianapolis Showhouse and then toured Cambria's facilities. I made it home in the evening and then had to load up my van with furniture to take to the EcoRehabarama home I'm staging for the show. I'll show you more on that next week.  I'll also tell you more about the Cambria Tour.

For now, I can't wait to share some of my favorite photos from the showhouse!

Let's start with the outside. This house is so massive that it was hard getting pictures of the outside that really show the whole house. The best I can do is show photos of the to-scale model birdhouse that was built :)

This is the front of the house which used to be the back when the first, original part of the house was built.

 And this is the back which used to originally be the front. I think this side makes more sense to be the front......well, except for the pool. Don't think too many people would want a pool in their front yard.

This is the same side as the shot above.

This room shown from the outside below was my favorite. The architecture is amazing and it was so bright and cheery inside!

And here is the inside. The dark looking window just left of center is actually a built-in fish tank!

 And just one of TWO incredible staircases!

 I LOVED all the original tile kept in all the bathrooms. It really added a lot of character to the house and it was fun seeing how each designer chose colors to enhance and modernize it.
