2015 Denver Designer Show House

The 2015 show house features two identical townhomes, 512 & 514 Cook Street in Cherry Creek, which each feature four levels of living, high ceilings, an elevator, and an abundance of natural light. The homes feature a color palette selected by Sherwin Williams, which will set the stage for the designers to test their skills working within varying color mediums. One townhome will be designed with a neutral palate, and the other with color. The homes will then be stylized with furniture, lighting, rugs and accessories by Denver’s top interior designers.

2013 Denver Designer Show House

The 2013 Show House is located at 919 Vine Street in the beautiful Morgan’s Historic District — a tiny, elegant neighborhood that boasts 57 of Denver’s most magnificent homes.

The home was designed by architect Lester Varian and constructed in 1927 for local businessmen & philanthropist Henry Porter of Porter Hospital. Mr. Porter was 90 years old when he built the home “to be nearer to his children – not for any assistance, but to see how they invested and spent the money he had given each of them.” He wanted his home to be “sturdy, comfortable and attractive, fitting for a wealthy man but not lavish.”

The grand arts & crafts style home is situated on a coveted half-acre bordering the Denver Botanic Gardens, boasting 7,000 square feet with 7 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, a wrap-around porch, with grand rooms & high ceilings.

2011 Denver Designer Show House

The 2011 Denver Designer Show House took place at The Cowperthwaite Estate, 1625 3rd Avenue, one of Country Club‘s most stately historic properties. Designed by Arthur Fisher of famed Fisher & Fisher Architects, this beautiful 1909 Tudor has been owned solely by the Cowperthwaite family since its original construction. It was the first home built on Gilpin Street in Country Club over a century ago. It is a home filled with wonderful history of the Cowperthwaite Family and Denver itself. In 2011, 28 interior designers from Denver, Vail, Aspen and Atlanta transformed this grand old Tudor and in the process raised $70,000 for Children’s Hospital Colorado. The home was for sale after the Show House closed and it has since sold.
