Have you ever wanted to walk through a Designer Showhouse? Well, now you are in luck!

Introducing the World’s First Ever Luxury Virtual Designer Showhouse!

What is a Virtual Luxury Designer Showhouse? Well, let me tell you, it is even more exciting than it sounds!

Traditionally, showhouses are throughout the U.S. and are homes that feature different designers designing parts of the home as a display of their portfolio. It’s a really fun event because they open it to the public and allow them to walk around and really marvel at their work!

Well, we’re about to change the way that you’re used to seeing showhouses…

2020 has been the year of changing and adapting. No one has done that better than Seasonal Living Magazine, because they have created the World’s First Ever Virtual Luxury Designer Showhouse! This showhouse features rooms designed by 11 nationally recognized designers featuring 15 inaugural brand sponsors! This is truly a unique experience as it is the first time you can walk through a space using Augmented Reality, shop the space using live links so you can purchase directly from the Showhouse!

The showhouse is the brainchild of Gary Pettitt, the publisher of Seasonal Living Magazine. He wanted a way to flip the script on the traditional showhouse idea and wanted a way to embrace technology as we navigate this new normal of a world we’re in!

Gary teamed up with Leslie Carothers, CEO of Savour Partnership and The Kaleidoscope Partnership, and Jenna Gaidusek, CEO of eDesign Tribe, whose rendering team of Annilee Waterman and Sarah Durnez brought this vision to life.

Gary designed a stunningly modern 20,000 square foot home nestled among 20 acres in the hills of Malibu, CA. Although this home lives entirely in the virtual world, it is certainly not without real world detail.

Along with the design of the home, Gary brought life to the clients that would live in this home; who they are, how they live, etc. so it would provide context to the Designers as we got to work.

The major focus of this home is sustainability and wellness. It’s a very timely theme, as we are all looking for ways to inject sustainability into our everyday lives. Wellness has been a “hot” word for a while, and it is finally getting its spotlight!

I was so excited when Leslie asked if I would design the Kitchen and the Solarium. Without a question, I said YES! We have really embraced the Virtual Reality world as you know, so this was another way to showcase that technology. When she told me who else was doing the show house, my inner fangirl was freaking out! I really respect and admire all of these Designers, and am so grateful to be a part of this with them! Many of them I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in person!

Our home was originally built in the 60s and had already been through a remodel in the 80s. It had good bones but they were hard to see under the later revisions. Ariana’s team went straight to the elements that needed to be preserved and highlighted them. The kitchen/dining room has been opened up amazingly and we’re very happy with it. In addition to the design efforts, we really value the 3-D renderings. It makes it much easier to talk with tradespeople about what we want to be done and how, and prevents miscommunications. Five stars for the Honeycomb team!
