MEET SEASONAL LIVING MAGAZINE’S LUXURY VIRTUAL SHOWHOUSE DESIGNERS
We are so honored to have these 11 nationally known interior designers/influencers and powerhouse online publishers helping us bring Seasonal Living Magazine’s Luxury Virtual Showhouse to life.
Before they knew exactly what they were getting into, they immediately said “YES (!)” to Showhouse principal, Leslie Carothers, when she asked them if they would like to be a part of this history making Showhouse.
Without them, what you are about to see partially revealed during our *Sneak Peek Reveal* festivities on Thursday, Dec. 3rd starting at 6 pm ET, would not be possible. Designers: thank you!
Today, we want to introduce them to you individually, below, where most of them have given us an image of their favorite *real world* room they’ve designed, to share with you. You’ll see their favorite real world design below their pictures.
Alphabetically, they are:

In addition, during the month of December, they will be sharing much more about the three themes of the Showhouse: wellness, sustainability and flexibility ( plus how our sponsors’s products fit into those three themes) and sharing how you can incorporate all their inspiring ideas into your own homes in 2021 for a greater sense of wellbeing and peace of mind.
And if you’d like to hire any of them to help you with your own design work in 2021, we know they’d love to hear from you.
