Veranda 'House of Windsor' opens for tours in L.A.
The showhouse, that ode to glorious decorating excess, largely disappeared from the L.A. scene along with the crash of the real estate market. This week, however, it's back -- big time.
The Veranda "House of Windsor," an 8,000-square-foot mansion in Mandeville Canyon, has been decked out by the likes of Peter Dunham, Kathryn Ireland, Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, Richard Shapiro and lead designer Windsor Smith, who included a little equestrian influence.
The "House of Windsor" will be open Thursday through Sunday, through July 17. Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 at the door. Go online for viewing hours, which vary daily, and a schedule of seminars to be held at the house. We sent Alexandria Abramian-Mott to preview the scene, and you can get her report via our photo gallery.
