HOWARD ELLIOTT + SHOWHOUSE INTERIORS - ASPIRE JLD DETROIT SHOWHOUSE

September is fast approaching, and with that, the big reveal of the Junior League of Detroit ASPIRE Showhouse! Howard Elliott is working with Michigan Interior Designer,  Jeanine Haith with ShowHouse Interiors!

For more than 10 years, ShowHouse Interiors has been offering unique, timeless designs that reflect their client's individual lifestyles and interests. Channeling her distinct talent, Jeanine has taken on the task of transforming the Library of the Fisher Mansion.

I selected the space as a challenge to transform a traditional dark masculine library into a more contemporary space to celebrate modern day royalty,

Of this room, it was the painted wood ceiling that caught Jeanine's eye. This evoked the inspiration behind her design. The artfully decorated ceiling is original to the house dating back to 1922. It depicts a hand painted family crest with the monogram signatures of the artists. Originally designed to be a library, but later became a billiard room. Reflected in the decor of the room, it is easy to imagine the man of the house entertaining influential scholars and businessmen of the era.

My concept is to re-introduce the space as a gathering den to celebrate a majestic Queen. We will shed light into a dark space and invite you to come take a seat and enjoy her story.

Even in her renderings, the transformation of this room will definitely be fit for royalty. The play of rich color, and bold patterns come together to create an invigorating yet inviting space. Flanking the fireplace Jeanine has chosen to use our Oversized Apollo Mirrors.

We selected a pair of Apollo Mirrors for their large scale and simple majestic beauty. The thin silver leaf frame and it’s large reflective face will bring light to the space and enhance the touches of feminine beauty we will inject into the room.
