ASID Pasadena Home Tour
October 7 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$37
During a daylong event on Sunday, October 7, the Pasadena Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is hosting a home tour at three private estates designed by ASID designers Rozalynn Woods, Jennifer Bevan, and Christina Santana.
“The ASID Home Tour celebrates the region’s diverse architecture and design culture,” said ASID Pasadena President Debbie Talianko.
The semi-guided tour will give design enthusiasts a glimpse into Pasadena’s rich culture, showcasing three diverse home and garden styles. A personal take on a designer showcase house, this tour takes you inside real properties throughout Pasadena and South Pasadena. Plus, a pop-up market dubbed First Stop will feature local shops, food trucks, designer vendors, and free design consultations, debunking the myth that design is only accessible online.
- Paul R. Williams Pasadena Estate: A 1925, 3600-sf Monterey Colonial designed by esteemed architect Paul R. Williams and reimagined by designer and home owner Jennifer Bevan. Sited on a half acre, the 3 bed/5 bath property is surrounded by mature trees, visible throughout the house. Untouched since 1987, Bevan edited the house back to echo the original architectural style. She infused traditional elements and neutral color palette punctuated with gold and black detailing. Highlights include exposed beam, limestone entry flooring, and a converted basement.
- Merril W. Baird Pasadena Estate: This 1939, 10,000-sf Southern Colonial designed by Christine Santana, was originally three separate houses on a giant lot. The front house, a colonial traditional designed by architect Merril W. Baird, sets the stage. Over the course of 14 years, Santana worked with her client to add to and renovate the property, creating a magnificent 5 bedroom/6 bath mansion. Still a work in progress, this estate marks the evolution of a client-designer relationship. Highlights include a classic formal dining room, gourmet kitchen, and expansive veranda.
- Petrie Wilson, South Pasadena Estate: Located on a half acre among heritage oak trees, this 1968, 4850-sf contemporary Santa Barbara ranch-style house was designed by Mrs. Petrie Wilson (an anomaly at the time) for her family. Designer Rozalynn Woods worked with architect Susan Masterman and the client on the current restoration, updating the home for modern times. An ode to the bucolic setting, the house is a mix of casual charm and natural elements with a dash of the ’60’s. Capturing the indoor/outdoor California lifestyle, the living area spills onto an over-sized patio. White-painted brick walls marry with wood details. Designed for an active household, this 6 bedroom/5 bath residence is as lived in as it is elegant. Highlights include a Mad Men office, an organic-inspired kitchen, and Mid-century furnishings.
ASID Pasadena Home Tour: Semi-guided home tour featuring three private residences and gardens. October 7, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Tickets: $37 through Sept. 15; $40 thereafter. Includes free parking and shuttle service plus pop-up market. Located at South Pasadena Unified School District.
