Designers' Show House Showcases Pewabic Tile
Wyandotte Patch - almost 5 years
Soon, the Junior League of Detroit (JLD) will open the doors to its 2012 Designers’ Show House, located at 22 Webber Place in Grosse Pointe Shores. The massive 10,304-square-foot house, which was built in 1928 as the home of Oscar Webber, nephew of Joseph L. Hudson, is undergoing a magical transformation, thanks to design specialists who hail from everywhere from Ferndale, South Lyon, Plymouth, Royal Oak and Birmingham to Rochester, Clinton Township, Grosse Pointe and Troy.
For several weeks, dozens of interior designers, painters, electricians, power washers, boutique staff and more have been working at the renowned home, designed by architect Leonard B. Willeke.
Open to the public May 5-20, the Show House features seven bedrooms, a third-floor ballroom and hand-carved wood and plaster throughout, to name a few highlights.
But one, or I should say, 17, of the most head-turning highlights are the spaces that feature Pewabic tile, showcased in 11 bathrooms and six fireplaces.
