The American Society of Interior Designers, Pasadena Chapter, has once again come up with a visually sumptuous treat for anyone willing to shell out $30 for an exclusive ticket. Last year we featured ASID Pasadena’s work and we are happy to do so again. 2009 has five homes in Pasadena and Arcadia that will take your breath away. From a very contemporary and lush Asian-influenced mansion to a sleek, 1960s “mod” styled house built with glass to a cozy, disarmingly homey and decorative 1920’s European Revival; this year’s tour is not one to miss!
The 23rd Annual Pasadena ASID Home & Kitchen Tour takes the public on a self-guided tour of five diverse private residences, each professionally designed by top ASID designers, with 21st century interiors complementing architecture that spans the 20th century. Inside each home you can meet the designers, see the trends, get ideas, shop, and buy chances to win a U-Line Wine Refrigerator (which retails at $1,500!) The event is Sunday, October 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 on the day of the tour–a slight price to pay the non-profit ASID, which uses the proceeds toward scholarships for emerging designers.
“Our tour is very strong on value,” explained Carol Cobabe, 2009 ASID Pasadena Chapter Home & Kitchen Tour chair. “What other home tour offers entrée to five diverse homes, plus opportunities to meet designers, learn about products and services from key industry vendors, and shop unusual boutiques–all for a mere $30 a ticket?”
Tickets include a map and the address of each home on the tour and are available by calling (800) 237-2634 or through the following retailers: Anthony’s Art & Frames; ASID Pasadena Chapter; Curves, Kenneth Village; Cynthia Bennett & Associates; French Laundry; Pzazz Hair Salon; and Snyder Diamond.
Sponsors of this event include: Gold, ALNO of Sierra Madre; Sterling, Snyder Diamond; Bronze, George’s Pipe and Plumbing Supply, Magistrale Construction, and Outdoor Elegance Patio Design Center.
