Pasadena Showcase House of Design to Highlight Monterey Colonial

Dunn-Edwards is proud to -- once again -- be the exclusive paint sponsor for the 2013 Pasadena Showcase House of Design. This is the event's 49th year as the annual fundraiser for Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts (PSHA). Dunn-Edwards has been the paint sponsor for more than 46 years and, this year, welcomes another home into the Showcase collection.

As one of the oldest, largest and most successful house and garden tours in the country, Showcase will highlight the work of residential architect Roland E. Coate, Sr. at a 1941 residence located in Arcadia, California. Open April 21 through May 19, 2013, this historic home will be transformed and fully renovated into an extraordinary jewel by renowned designers from throughout Southern California.

Originally built for prominent furniture executive C. Lawrence Barker, of the former Southland furniture company, Barker Brothers, the estate is a Monterey Colonial residence that features a number of Colonial Revival subtypes, a mixture that the architect was known for in his attempts in creating a native "California Style." The estate is a two-story, 10,433-square-foot home that features several gardens, a tennis/basketball court, a swimming pool with spa, and a pool house set on 1.79 acres.

PSHA is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization in California whose members donate time and resources to the annual Pasadena Showcase House of Design. Founded in 1948, the PSHA adopted the Pasadena Showcase House of Design as its annual benefit in 1965. Event proceeds support local arts and music programs with gifts and grants, the annual Pasadena Showcase House Youth Concert, the Pasadena Showcase House Music Mobile, and the Pasadena Showcase House Instrumental Competition.
