Veranda 'House of Windsor' opens for tours in L.A.

July 1, 2011 |  1:42 pm


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.
