The Women’s Board of the Columbus Museum of Art has selected 21 South Parkview Avenue in the heart of Bexley, OH as the location for its 20th Anniversary Decorators’ Show House.  This stately Bexley manor was renovated by Behal-Sampson-Dietz and sits on 1.4 acres on prestigious Parkview Avenue.

From April 23 through May 12, 2013, the house will showcase numerous interior design and exterior landscape spaces that will be transformed by Central Ohio’s most prestigious interior and landscape designers. Visitors are sure to be awestruck by this home’s unmatched beauty and unique history.

The Women’s Board of the Columbus Museum of Art has also selected the exceptional Central Ohio designers for the Show House. Featured designers include Shauna Lehman Interiors, R. Sherman Design, Terri Slee Interiors, Phyllis Craver Fine Designs, Susan Matrka Interiors, Katie Hixon Interiors, Fortner Fine Living and Upholstery, Grand Design Group, Martha Poulton Interiors, Kellie Toole Interior Design, Howard Brooks Interiors, CRI/Creations, Interiorworks by Sally McDonald, Acquisitions for the Home, Blue Designs, and Fortin Ironworks. Through the competitive process of the design lottery, designers were selected for each design space.
