The 2022 Pasadena
Showcase House of Design
2022 Pasadena Showcase House of Design
April 24 – May 22, 2022
Everything you know and love about the Pasadena Showcase House of Design is back as we return to South Pasadena for the first time in over 40 years.
Anchoring a historic Greene & Greene planned neighborhood of century-old homes, this stately 1905 English Tudor mansion provides exquisite living atop a sprawling estate of natural beauty. Built for Mr. Harry Hawgood, an English civil engineer whose career designing railways and waterways spanned multiple continents, the home’s concrete construction eschewed popular wood framing of the time and has led many to believe Mr. Hawgood himself was the architect.
Despite its unique concrete construction, the home contains rich wood interiors and intriguing period details including stained glass windows, ornate beamed ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling travertine fireplaces. Artistically landscaped sunken gardens wrap around the home with scenic paths leading down to the hidden edges of the property.

Pasadena Showcase House of Design is the fundraiser produced by Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts to fund their music programs and award gifts and grants to other non-profit organizations to support their efforts. It is open for tours mid-April to mid-May.
What does it take to be a Showcase House? There is no ideal house that meets all the criteria; so, every year the advantages are weighed against the disadvantages of the properties available for that year. Some years we have a plethora from which to choose, and some years, well, there are fewer. Two staircases is at the top of the must-have list, a wide road for the shuttles, space for Shops, porta-potties, trash, etc. are the practicalities that influence the selection.
Sometimes there are grand mansions and other times charming homes on a smaller scale are chosen. No matter the square footage, each estate is renovated from top to bottom by leading designers using the latest concepts and materials. So, indulge your inner looky-loo. Take a look behind the gates and come have a good time. And, it doesn’t hurt that you’re helping support your community at the same time. What a deal!

They have provided paint, and that alone, is worthy of our deep gratitude because it is a generous contribution that makes a significant difference to this project.
Additionally they have helped to guide us about upcoming color trends from their mountains of research. We have also asked for their assistance in marketing the Showcase House and like good friends they always come through for us. And then when we said, "By the way, we need money too," they were there with a substantial check.
It is hard to know how to thank friends like this. In 2019 we commissioned this poster and presented it to Dunn-Edwards Paints at a special meeting of members and designers before the first tour of the 2019 Showcase House. It was a small gesture but full of sincere appreciation to try to express how important this relationship is to us. Their paint, their support, their expertise and their friendship are invaluable.
