Decorator Showhouse season is in full swing, and that means that wherever you live, there is probably a recently opened showhouse close by. One showhouse which I recently visited was the Lake Forest Showhouse & Gardens, located in a fabulous David Adler house in Lake Forest, Illinois. As expected, the house's architecture is amazing, but what is equally as impressive are the rooms decorated by some of the finest Chicago and Lake Forest designers. Although the rooms represent a range of styles, what they have in common is that they are all well-appointed and finished looking.
I was able to take just a few detail shots, but I hope that the photos are enough to pique your interest. It's really a great showhouse and one which, if you live in the area, you shouldn't miss!
Susan Kroeger did a lovely job creating a tranquil, feminine bedroom.
Summer Thornton Design took a stylish walk on the wild side with her Upper Gallery space. I liked her use of Les Touches for the space's curtains.
Julia Buckingham Edelmann's Party Room was this Currey & Co. "Rondelay" covered in a Brunschwig & Fils fabric. She also included a great looking card table and chairs in this space.
Joseph Szymczak conjured up a masculine Dining Room with Grand Tour accents.
