Showhouse Santa Fe – Our Mission
ShowHouse Santa Fe has quickly emerged as a power fundraising engine for promoting education for children. Our 2015 event raised net proceeds of over $30,000 for Dollars4schools.org. With the funding the efforts made by the Santa Fe Interior Designers involved impact 2000 students and 18 Santa Fe schools.
Showhouse Santa Fe 2017 is a true treasure of the American Southwest. Being Nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, it overlooks historic Santa Fe, New Mexico. The property showcases the unique and rustic beauty of the New Mexico High Desert.
Once you enter through the unassuming front gates of this breathtaking estate, you’ll experience why New Mexico is called the Land of Enchantment. This property consists of 36 acres and provides a distinct backdrop for a magnificent estate that exemplifies the wonders of the Southwest. No detail was overlooked in the architecture – from the hand-forged wrought iron railings, diamond trowelled plaster walls, and custom cabinetry, to floors of imported stone, marble, ceramic tile, and hardwoods including hickory and quarter sawn oak. Large windows and skylights, custom draperies, light fixtures, and wooden beam vegas and latillas also add to the unique beauty of the interiors.
The original home was built in the early 1940s. Over the next seventy years, additional land was acquired and assembled, the property was renovated and expanded, and the many site improvements and buildings were precisely designed and integrated into the current setting. Care was taken to maintain the integrity of the Pueblo-style architecture, which is symbolic of the area’s original inhabitants dating back as early as 1050 A.D.
Stivers and Smith Interiors will be designing the entrance to our Show House as well as the Salon.
In keeping with our theme “West of Contemporary” an adventure in Black and White, we will create an eclectic dance, melding together some contemporary elements with some traditional/transitional pieces. Classic art and accents will take on a new contemporary slant while honoring Santa Fe’s rich heritage and culture.
