ShowHouse Santa Fe 2016 / by Marty Wilkinson

We had a blast designing rooms for the 4th Annual ShowHouse Santa Fe, celebrating Old Mex & New Mex, a blend of regional and Old Mexico designs. This year's ShowHouse was held in a historic east side home that belonged to the estate of the famous White Sisters in the 1920s and 1930s, daughters of a wealthy New York newspaperman.

Our team transformed rustic rooms with brilliant color, painting walls, bancos and a kiva fireplace. We added more vibrant color with festive rugs, canopy curtains, ottomans, pillows and more. We took our inspiration from Santa Fe's famous sunsets, and from the history of the White Sisters, whose parties were the center of Santa Fe social life, represented here with elegant candelabras and a vintage chandelier.

Take a look at our photo gallery showcasing our designs for this year's ShowHouse theme, "Everything Old is New Again "Mexico! The items you see are available at Metamorphosis Consignment, located at 1587 Pacheco St. in Santa Fe, open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10:30am to 5 pm .

See you at next year's ShowHouse!
