Eclectic West U home opens doors for new design and architectural tour
Locals looking for a little design inspo can stroll into a charming dwelling this weekend. The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Texas Gulf Coast is opening the doors to its 2022 Show House in West University from December 15-18.
For those who enjoy home tours, this open house (located at 3807 Westerman St.) presents a rare chance to tour a more than 5,000-square-foot-home boasting intricate, cutting-edge, and even whimsical crafting.
Design pays homage to the tree-lined street, with natural finishes, plenty of existing light, and lots of luxury.
This Show House features 14 of Houston's top interior designers, all ASID members, with a space designed by chosen interior design students, according to press materials.

“It has been my honor to work alongside so many talented designers on the 2022 Show House,” said Victoria Sheffield, Show House event chair, in a press release. “Continuing supply chain challenges brought the opportunity to rely heavily on local vendors and craftspeople who represent our diverse and creative city so well. The marvelous craftsmanship of Sugar Creek Homes allowed the designers to implement many unique features. Please enjoy the tour and find some inspiration for your next project!”
Doors open at 10 am with the last entry at 4:30 pm. Tickets are $35 for adults and $15 for children under 12 and can be found online or at the door.
According to ASID, a portion of the ticket sales will be donated to Show House philanthropy partner AHA!, which benefits under-resourced children in the local community.
