Decorator show houses sprung out of the concept of showcasing the visions and talents of interior designers and landscapers, but are also connected to fund-raising. A house is initially donated for re-decoration and designers are selected by the charitable committee. Each designer is then assigned a room to re-design and on completion, the house opens it's doors for public viewing in order to raise money for charity. In this case, the 'house' is Blithewald Mansion (seen above) and the charity, The Visiting Nurse Association Health Group.
