“House of Windsor” Now Open for Tours in L.A.


For design fans who believe more is more, Mandeville Canyon’s “House of Windsor” showhouse is an exercise in excess (though we love the relative simplicity of the muted kitchen). The 8,000 square foot mansion features rooms decorated by some of the more well-known names in L.A. interior design (especially if you’re a fan of Bravo’s “Million Dollar Decorators“).

The concept house is the creation of self-described “lifestyle architect” Windsor Smith, who along with designers like Peter Dunham, Kathryn Ireland, Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, and Richard Shapiro set out to build a home for a modern SoCal family.

The showhouse opened to the public last week and will remain accessible to the public through July 17th. Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 at the door. A portion of the proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit Children’s Action Network and P.S. ARTS. Go online for viewing hours, which vary daily, and a schedule of seminars to be held at the house.
