The 2018 Showcase House, called “The Overlook”, is a Mediterranean-style home designed by Pasadena based architect Reginald Davis Johnson. For this event, prominent interior designers renovated and transformed the architecturally significant house for viewers to get a glimpse at the “latest color trends, concepts, products and technology” in interior design.
This year’s Pasadena Showcase House of Design marks the 54th annual fundraising event held by the Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts (PSHA). As a volunteer base organization, the Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts (PSHA) is a non-profit California Corporation. All proceeds from the Pasadena Showcase House of Design and donations go towards funding “three annual music programs, plus award gifts and grants to other nonprofit organizations that provide music programs including music therapy, music education, scholarships and the underwriting of concerts.”
The very first Pasadena Showcase House of Design was held in 1965. At the time, admission tickets were $1.50, and with 7,500 visitors in attendance, the committee was able to raise over $11,000. Fast forward to today, the Pasadena Showcase House of Design is “one of the oldest, largest and most successful house and garden tours in the United States.” Ticket prices now range from $35 to $60 each and approximately 30,000 visitors are expect from to come from local areas and far away location.
