The Baltimore Symphony Associates (BSA) will host its 34th annual Decorators’ Show House at 31 Woodholme Ave. in Pikesville, Maryland from May 8-30. Featuring Maryland’s leading interior designers, the Show House is an annual fundraiser to benefit the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s education programs. Show House hours are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance and are available through the BSO Box office, BSOmusic.org, Graul’s Market and Field’s Pharmacy. Tickets are $25 at the door. Guests may also purchase specialty goods and crafts and at the onsite boutique. Many of the accessories and furnishings used in the designed spaces and gently-used consignment items are also available for purchase. Parking is available at 15 Music Fair Road, Owings Mills, MD with a shuttle service from the parking area to Woodholme.
Constructed in 1925 during prohibition, this Tudor-styled home features two hidden liquor storage areas: a sliding cabinet behind a bookcase and a wine cellar built into the dining room wall. The four bedroom, three and half bath home also features a library, a sun porch and an alchemist’s chamber.
To prepare this home for the more than 10,000 guests who annually attend the Associate’s popular fundraiser, approximately 50 designers and construction workers renovate, decorate and furnish the estate’s 24 rooms. This year’s selection of award-winning interior designers include Maryland Chapter President of the American Society of Interior Designers Laura C. Kimball, Russell Slouck from Gatehouse Interiors and Donna Melvin from Twin Diamond Studios, among others. One special wall even includes a mural of the home’s history.
