Though the practice dates back centuries, the idea of creating an at-home wellness sanctuary resonates particularly strongly today. More than ever, we all yearn for ways to foster a peaceful home environment infused with self-care. As design evolves to reflect trends and needs, we begin to see the wellness theme manifested in various ways. A notable example is this year’s Pasadena Showcase House of Design (PSHD). Designed by Studio Jhoiey and suffused with 1930s Art Deco elegance, the primary suite and bath of the 2020 PSHD embodies aspirational living through the home wellness sanctuary lens.

Designer Jhoiey Ramirez selected a variety of products from the DRS and Associates client roster to bring her vision to life. The Smart Shower brought a high-tech perspective while the floors, wall tile, lighting, faucet and hardware selections provided a clever mix of metals, textures and prints for a true visual feast. We are always happy to connect and collaborate with Studio Jhoiey, Inc.

The 2020 Pasadena Showcase House’s primary suite was designed as a respite for the homeowners from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Located in Arcadia, it pays homage to a time when beautification in the city meant planting trees along parkways, golf courses and bowling greens. This verdant outdoor palette inspired the various botanical patterns and hues of green used throughout the space.

To marry the grandeur of the Showcase House’s architecture with the functionality and flow of a modern lifestyle, Ms. Ramirez opened walls, improved lighting and added technological conveniences to create a relaxing confection of a space that lends itself to being savored.

This year, due to extenuating circumstances, the PSHD will eschew in-person tours for the public, opting instead for virtual ones. Proceeds from the ticket sales will support music programs in local schools. Virtual tours commenced on October 2nd. For information and to purchase tickets, visit Pasadena Showcase House of Design

We are encouraged to be a part of a design community that finds ways to embrace creativity, even during these challenging times, and look forward to connecting our artisanal kitchen and bath clients with more innovative projects like the Pasadena Showcase House.
