The news of Seasonal Living Magazine’s Luxury Virtual Designer Showhouse broke last week and took the design world by storm. The brilliance of design industry powerhouse, Leslie Carothers of Savour Partnership in collaboration with Gary Pettit CEO of Seasonal Living Magazine, has forever changed the way we experience interior design now and into the future. You’ve never experienced a showhouse like this before—ever—and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be a member of this Inaugural Team. The showhouse officially opens on December 3, 2020 and you can reserve your complimentary ticket here.

Imagine touring a 20,000 square foot luxury Malibu dream home from the comforts of your own home. See 360 views of each professionally designed room with shoppable links to every item. This is access granted like never before thanks to the expert 3D photo rendering team of Jenna Gaidusek, Sarah Durnez, and Annilee Waterman. I’ve already had the opportunity to test drive this cutting edge technology and during the design process, I’ve often times forgot that this is not a physical home. However, its modern structure is on the most beautiful 20 acres in the virtual world.

What’s even more relevant about this home is its real-time emphasis on what happening in our world on a global level. Spending more time at home this year, our eyes have been opened wide to the shortcomings within our four walls. Therefore we are seeking more opportunities to improve the way we live from a health and wellness prospective as well as how we use our homes as remote workspaces.

We are honored to showcase our ideas and talents along side many of the most influential interior designers in the country. There are 11 participating designers spotlighting new uses for familiar rooms—think kitchen with a koi pond, as well as forward-thinking designs such as a three story indoor garden and a decontamination room. Working from home, perhaps you’ll be inspired by a celebrity-worth designed Zoom room? I will be sharing more in the upcoming weeks about this home and the Participating Sponsors who have been early adopters to this concept!

Featured Designers: Laura Miller, Rachel Moriarty, Erika Hollinshead Ward, Ariana Afshar Lovato, Veronica Solomon, Carla Aston, Michelle Jennings Wiebe, Jeanne Khoe Chung, Gloribell Lebron, Robin Baron, and Arianne Bellizaire

Robin Baron Collection, Cosentino, Howard Elliott Collection, Fabricut, Inc., Global Views, Jaipur Living, Inc., Nathan Anthony, Niermann Weeks, Revel Woods, Seasonal Living, Signature Kitchen Suite, Universal Furniture
