Lake Forest Showhouse 2020

The Lake Forest Showhouse benefiting the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago is officially opening its doors tomorrow! The roster of designers and the rooms they have created is nothing short of impressive (keep in mind during a pandemic, nonetheless!). Some of my very favorite showhouse rooms in the past have been in the Lake Forest showhomes, and from the video tours and sneak peek photos we have had the chance to see on instagram, it's already very obvious that this years home does not disappoint. Oh, how I wish to see it all in person! But of course I am thankful for the powers of social media which at least have let us take this virtual walk through today. Let's take a peek:

Thanks for the tour. It’s a fabulous house and the designers knocked it out of the park.
