Road Trip to the Richmond Symphony Designer House

I first heard about the Richmond Symphony Designer House back in April from A Passion for Home. The showhouse is taking place at George and Anne Anderson's Tudor home "Rothesay," located on more than eight acres of land overlooking the James River.

In addition to talented Richmond designers, the showhouse will also feature the work of Mary Douglas Drysdale, Tobi Fairley, and Phoebe Howard as well as the gorgeous lighting of New Orleans' Julie Neill. That's alot of talent under one showhouse roof!

The showhouse opens Sep 13th but if you'd like a sneak peek consider attending the Gala this coming Friday night Sep 10th. Two friends and I are planning to make it a fun get-away trip and are staying at The Jefferson.
