Decorators’ Show House and Gardens

Welcome to the St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild’s 57th Annual Decorators’ Show House and Gardens. It is our pleasure to have you join us for a tour of a unique property in the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood, built by the former head of the Diamond Chain Company. We hope that you will enjoy your experience today, as your visit continues the tradition of “The Country’s Longest-Running Show House Event.” The Guild members, designers, and landscapers spend months laying the groundwork for each show house. In early February, we take possession of the property, and the work begins. This year’s 24 designers and landscapers are putting their designs into action, transforming empty rooms into masterpieces and bare outside areas into lush gardens and open-air living spaces. While respecting the heritage and style of this historic residence, our designers look to designs and trends that will also accommodate a modern-day active family. As you tour the house and grounds, please follow along in this program. The areas are listed, numbered, and described in the order in which you will see them. There is helpful information on each page, including designer information, paint color names, and names of contractors used by the designer. We hope that you will find an area or two that inspires you to go home and give one of your own rooms a new look. Of course, you can always make an appointment with one of our designers! The Guild volunteers, our dedicated designers, and our landscape professionals make this springtime tradition possible. Willingly jumping into this effort are many loyal businesses, vendors, and contractors, as well as many others who offer special services. We encourage you to look at their advertisements and logos in this program. We hope that you will visit their places of business. Without their support, the Guild would not be able to carry out a project of this scope to benefit Eskenazi Health. St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild’s mission is to raise funds for the programs and services of Eskenazi Health. It is a Level I Trauma Center, and everyone in the community benefits from its organizational skills in the event of any public disaster. The men and women of Eskenazi offer superior heath care for all, regardless of ability to pay. We are proud to support Eskenazi Health and its contribution to the entire community. As you explore the beautifully decorated rooms, remember that many of the items are available for purchase. Each room has a price list of items for sale. Landscapers may also have plantings available for purchase. Contact individual designers and landscapers for your purchases. After your tour of the house and grounds, we invite you to visit our Show House Shops and to have lunch or a snack at Maggie’s Café. Thank you for attending the 57th Annual Decorators’ Show House and Gardens. We hope you enjoy your visit and look forward to making it your yearly tradition.

Eskenazi Health Patient Testimonals

Shenell Sanders – EMBRACE Shenell Sanders was 21 when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer. She was diagnosed at another local hospital, but was told they could not do anything for her because she did not have health insurance. That’s when she found Dr. Lida Mina, a Hematologist/Oncologist at Eskenazi Health. “She is the absolute best,” Shenell asserts. “She took good care of me.” In addition to treating her, Dr. Mina also referred Shenell to EMBRACE. Since Shenell had to quit her job as a Home Health Aide, due to her undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, she needed help to get by. EMBRACE provided her with grocery gift cards, so she could keep up her strength; a cell phone to keep in touch with Dr. Mina; basic necessities, such as deodorant and lotion; and even paid some of her utility bills, so she did not have to worry about them. Shenell says that EMBRACE means the world to her. “I don’t call them often, but every time someone from EMBRACE sees me, they ask if there’s anything I need or anything they can do for me.” With the excellent care of Dr. Mina, and the resources and support provided by EMBRACE, Shenell went into remission. She lived cancer free for four years. In November of 2015, Shenell had been having trouble breathing and walking, and suddenly could not get out of bed one day. She talked to Dr. Mina, who ordered a CAT scan. They found tumors on her lungs, brain, and bones. She was given three months to live. As of September 2016, Shenell is enjoying her work at a local daycare. She finished radiation for her brain tumors and is still taking medication to keep the growth of the tumors at bay. She is extremely grateful for all of the support EMBRACE staff members have given her over the past six years. “When people first say you have cancer, the first thing you think of is death. Don’t get me wrong, I was devastated. But, now, I don’t even focus on the cancer and I just do what Dr. Mina says and I believe God is watching over me. I know EMBRACE is there if I need any help or anything. If I had one message to other people who find out they have cancer, it would be to stay strong because you will get through it.”


Eskenazi Health Patient Testimonals

Charlee Davis – NICU On June 3, 2016, Latrice Davis came to the Eskenazi Health OB Triage Center. She was 31 weeks pregnant and experiencing some discomfort, including vision problems in her right eye. Within a half an hour after arrival, Latrice was admitted to the hospital. She had extremely high blood pressure (215/125), protein in her urine and severe anemia. Over the next few hours, staff tried a variety of strategies and medications to lower her blood pressure. Unfortunately, nothing worked and both lives were in danger. Latrice underwent an emergency C-section at 12:21 p.m. Due to her severe anemia, she had to be under general anesthesia during the procedure, so she was unable to meet her daughter. In fact, she did not get to see her until 12:25a.m. when Latrice was deemed well enough to visit the NICU. Though Charlee Davis was only 2 pounds, 14 ounces and the smallest baby in the NICU, her mother knew she was a fighter. Latrice also knew that she was going to do everything she could to help her little girl thrive. In fact, despite her own five-day stay in the hospital undergoing test after test to try to figure out why her blood pressure was out of control, Latrice spent as much time as she could in the NICU. “The nurses would tell me ‘the problem is you. Your daughter is fine. You need your rest,’ Latrice recounted. “But, I wouldn’t leave. I would be at the NICU all day. The nurses even came there to bring me my medication here!” Latrice befriended the nurses. They would check on her, encouraging her to eat and take care of herself. “That was important,” Latrice explained “Because I kept forgetting about me. I was worrying so much about her.” Luckily, Latrice’s blood pressure and anemia were able to be controlled and she was released after five days. That did not stop her from staying by Charlee’s side. Latrice made sure to have skin-to-skin contact with Charlee every day, sometimes five hours at a time. She used a loaner breast pump to ensure Charlee had the milk she needed. Within a few days, Charlee was off of the ventilator, oxygen and ultraviolet lighting. She was receiving Latrice’s milk and donor milk, some through her feeding tube and, eventually, some through bottles. Everyone, but her mother, was amazed at how quickly Charlee progressed. “She was the smallest baby, but she progressed so fast. She was so alert and so feisty,” Latrice recalled. She would work her way out of any swaddling, freeing her hands to pull out her feeding tube from her nose. Sometimes she would pull it out three times a day. The nurses tried putting mittens on her hands, but they were too big. Eventually, Latrice noticed that Charlee was doing well with the feedings and convinced the nurses to let them try bottles one day. Charlee took the bottles all day the first time they tried. “I know what she’s capable of,” Latrice said. “I would say ‘I think she’s ready for this’ and the nurses would listen to me and were willing to try it.” Latrice was grateful for her involvement in the decision-making. Charlee became a bit of a celebrity around the NICU. Even the cleaning staff would stop by to check on “Miss Charlee.” With her mother visiting every day, providing skin-to-skin contact, a calming voice and lots of love, Charlee was able to leave the hospital after 35 days. At 16 weeks, Charlee is as strong as ever and weighs in at 8 pounds, 3 ounces.



Achievement in Medicine Award Generously sponsored by the Indiana Blood Center since 2006

The AIM Award,

given annually by St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild and sponsored by the Indiana Blood Center, honors a management-level member of the Eskenazi Health team who upholds the tradition of excellence in healthcare. These two innovative, creative, and dedicated recipients were selected among many exceptional nominees from Eskenazi Health.

amy carter, ma, rd, cd, cde Amy Carter coordinates a dynamic team of registered dietitians providing clinical nutrition services and programming at Eskenazi Health. Under her direction, the team develops and offers a wide range of programs, including nationally accredited diabetes programs, hypertension groups, a healthy market concept, along with cooking and nutrition classes for families using produce from the Sky Farm at Eskenazi Health. She is fortunate to partner with many local and national organizations to host innovative programs that make nutrition education meaningful and accessible for patients and frequently shares best practices in speaking events.

In 2017, Amy was named Indiana Diabetes Educator of the Year for her work with the Eskenazi Health Diabetes Education Program. Continuing to blend food and nutrition education, she developed the curriculum for the certified Dietary Management program at Ivy Tech Community College. Amy is a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, holding a degree in dietetics from Marian University, a Spanish certificate from the Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara, and a master’s degree in adult and community education from Ball State University. She lives with her incredibly supportive husband Jeff and daughters Jenna and Ava, who keep her free time full of youth sports, music, cooking and travel.

janine m. fogel, m.d., ccfp, abfm Janine M. Fogel is the medical director of the Eskenazi Health Transgender Health & Wellness Program, providing primary care services for adult transgender patients. Dr. Fogel is a leader in transgender health care, serving on the board of directors of OutCare Health Indiana, the state’s first health resource providing extensive information on LGBT health. She is also a member of the Indiana University School of Medicine LGBTQ Health Care Committee and the World Professional Association of Transgender Heath. A biology and psychology major at the University of Toronto, Dr. Fogel also received her medical degree from the University of Toronto School of Medicine. She completed the Family Medicine Residency Training Program Fellowship with the University of Toronto/Women’s College Hospital in Toronto. She has been on the faculty of Eskenazi Health since 1996. As a family medicine practitioner, Dr. Fogel learned about the health care needs of the LGBT population after visiting California several years ago. When she returned

to Indiana, she worked with Eskenazi Health leadership to open a transgender health and wellness program. The program’s staff includes a primary care physician, surgeon, licensed practical nurse (LPN), social worker, and patient coordinator. Dr. Fogel has spoken many times on the topic of transgender health and wellness. She has cited research by the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association that shows that LGBT patients often experience barriers to appropriate health care, due to their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Dr. Fogel has been board certified by the Canadian College of Family Physicians (CCFP) and American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), and has been professionally involved in a number of organizations, including the Ontario Medical Association and the Canadian College of Family Physicians. She supervises medical students and residents and has mentored pre-medical school students in her role with the Eskenazi Health Center Primary CareCenter of Excellence in Women’s Health. 2018 DECORATORS’ SHOW HOUSE AND GARDENS 9

We would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have and share the St. Margaret’s story. st. margaret’s hospital guild, inc. mission statement St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild, Inc. is a volunteer organization committed to raising funds for the services and programs of Eskenazi Health.

was founded in 1907 by five women who formed a nonsectarian guild to provide care and support to Indianapolis’ City Hospital patients through direct service and fundraising projects. The Guild’s mission is the same today; only the name of the hospital has changed. Starting as City Hospital in 1855, the hospital has been known as Indianapolis General Hospital, Marion County General Hospital, Wishard Memorial Hospital, and today we all know it as Eskenazi Health. People often ask how the name of the Guild was chosen. St. Margaret, the daughter of ninth-century Prince Edward of Scotland, worked with the sick, the orphans, and the poor. Each year since 1962, St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild has organized the refurbishing of a classic home, opened the home for a two-week public tour, and donated the proceeds to Eskenazi Health. Since the Guild’s founding in 1907, it has raised almost $13 million for Eskenazi Health, supporting the patients and professionals at our city’s public hospital. Proceeds from the Decorators’ Show House and Gardens allow SMHG to provide equipment and special programs for patients at Eskenazi Health. With your help, the Guild has funded the Burn Unit, sponsored two mobile mammography clinics, allowed for department renovations, initiated the Mother’s Milk Bank, and provided “Protecting Our Children” materials. SMHG has provided summer group therapy at Midtown Children’s Center, underwritten childbirth classes focusing on areas of highest infant mortality, purchased golf carts to help patients navigate the hospital campus, and supported the Haven of Hope with forensic medical supplies. The Guild has helped build raised garden beds for patients’ use at the Sky Garden, supported Healthy Me for children, funded the Limestone Falls at the Commonground, and purchased an eight-vehicle fleet, including two ADA-accessible vans for use by Eskenazi Midtown Mental Health. Funds earned from the Decorators’ Show House and Gardens also provided support for the Sandra Eskenazi Center for Brain Care Innovation. Most recently, the Guild has pledged to support the Center for Nursing Excellence at Eskenazi Health. St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild is proud to be one of the pioneer volunteer groups in the City of Indianapolis. We are grateful to the designers, landscape architects, sponsors, individuals, corporations, and donors of in-kind services who make this annual event possible.

A History of 4140 N. Illinois Street

The Tudor Revival residence located at 4140 North Illinois Street was built in 1925 by Guy Alwyn Wainwright (1889-1956) and Jeanette Harvey Wainwright (1894-1949). At the time the recently-wed couple were building their new home, Guy Wainwright was vice president and general manager of the Diamond Chain Company. He went on to become president of the company in 1931 and chairman of the board in 1955. Incorporated in 1890 as the Indianapolis Steel Castings Company by Charles E. Test, Arthur C. Newby, Edward C. Fletcher, and Glen C. Howe, the firm’s roller chains were originally designed for bicycles, which were the latest craze in the 1880s. By the turn of the century, however, the founders’ interests had turned to automobiles. In 1905, the corporation was purchased by Guy Wainwright’s father, Lucius Morton Wainwright (1860-1931), who renamed it Diamond Chain Company and expanded its products to serve other industries. Diamond chains were used in the Wright Brothers’ first flying machine and in Henry Ford’s first automobile. Today, the company’s products serve a diverse range of manufacturing enterprises. The Wainwrights owned Diamond Chain from 1905 until 1950, when it was sold to American Steel Foundries (now known as Amsted Industries). Guy and Jeanette Wainwright owned the property for 32 years. Their three sons, William, Thomas, and Stephen, grew up in the home. The youngest, Stephen, a noted biologist and retired Duke University professor, is the only family member who is still living. The land that accompanies the residence is comprised of four building lots that were originally intended to have a home constructed on each of them. However, the Wainwrights purchased three lots adjacent to the lot on which their home was to be built, making a combined total of almost two acres. As a result of the additional land, the property extends from Illinois Street on the east to Capitol Avenue on the west. It has ingress and egress on both thoroughfares. Because the property has more footage fronting on Capitol Avenue than it does on Illinois Street, the City assigned it the address of 4139 North Capitol Avenue back in 1925. It was known by the Capitol Avenue address throughout the Wainwrights’ ownership and well into the second owners’ residency. In recent years, the address was changed to 4140 North Illinois Street, a more logical approach to the house for guests. The long driveway at the east entrance to the property ascends to the home on the hill through a


stunning wooded lot. In December of 1924, the application for the building permit described the proposed construction as a two-story residence with basement and attached garage. It was estimated that the materials and labor would cost about $50,000. That projected figure was only for the construction of the home; it did not include the cost of the purchase of the land prior to improvements. Using the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ inflation calculator, the cost to build the house in 1924 would be equivalent to more than $700,000 today. Construction of the home began early in 1925 and was completed by the end of that same year. The architectural firm the Wainwrights hired for the project was Osler and Burns. Willard Osler and Lee Burns were known for designing churches such as Trinity Episcopal, First Congregational, and Second Presbyterian, as well as for designing commercial buildings like the English Foundation, Broad Ripple Flanner and Buchanan Funeral Center, and several buildings at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Osler and Burns also designed the former Marmon house downtown that is now home to the University Club, as well as another former Marmon residence in Brendonwood. According to the city’s property tax records, the total area of the home, including the basement and attached garages, is 7,113 square feet. A considerable portion of the home’s exterior is brick, laid in the Flemish Bond style of alternating the long sides of the bricks and the short ends of the bricks. The remainder of the home’s exterior is stucco with false half-timbering. The roof is slate, and the gutters are copper. An unusual feature protruding from the east façade of the home is a rounded structure that is primarily glass, which was added a few years after the original home was built. Subtle personalized decorative touches appear around the home, such as the year “1925” carved in wood above the front door and the initials “GW” stamped in copper at the site of a scupper near the northwest corner of the house. Within a few months after Guy Wainwright’s death, the property was purchased from his estate by Richard Austin Cochran (1915-2001) and his wife, Jessie Hall Cochran (19231967). Dick was president of the A. B. Cochran Construction Company. Among the many projects his firm built over the years were the Indianapolis Day Nursery, Hendricks County Hospital, and the hangar at the Mount Comfort Airport. A. B. Cochran also constructed additions to Broad Ripple High

School and Carmel High School and made upgrades to the Indiana Governor’s Mansion after it moved to its present location at 46th and Meridian Streets. Two years after Jessie Cochran’s 1967 death, Richard Cochran married Patricia Jameson Acheson (1919-2016). Patty was the great-great-granddaughter of Ovid Butler (1801-1881), one of the founders of, and the man for whom, Butler University was named. She was also the grandniece of author and playwright, Newton Booth Tarkington (18691946). For the remaining years of Patty’s life, which was nearly half-a-century, 4140 North Illinois Street was the site of many family gatherings and social events. After Patty passed away in December of 2016, the property was inherited jointly by the widow of her older son, John Huyler Acheson (1942-2014), and her younger son, Donald Jameson Acheson. Don purchased his brother’s half of the estate from his sister-in-law, thus making Don the sole owner. The extended Cochran family has now owned the property for 61 years. In the summer of 2017, Don and his wife, Clare Fox Acheson, graciously agreed to allow St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild to make the property its 2018 Decorators’ Show House and Gardens. There is an interesting backstory to the 93-year history of the Wainwright-Cochran House. Despite its being nearly a century old, neither it nor any of the other houses that surround it was the very first home to be built there. For more than four decades, the home of a respected pioneer family had a commanding presence on that land. In 1882, William Alexander Ketcham (1846-1921) and Flora McDonald Ketcham (1846-1938) bought 13.8 acres in Washington Township, bounded by what would later become 41st Street on the south, 42nd Street on the north, Illinois Street on the east, and Senate Avenue (now called Boulevard Place) on the west. At the time the Ketchams moved there from downtown Indianapolis, the sparsely populated area was considered out in the country. Both Mr. and Mrs. Ketcham were from families that had been among Marion County’s earliest settlers. William Ketcham’s paternal grandfather, John Ketcham (1782-1865), came to Indiana in 1811, was a colonel in the state militia, and was a founder of Indiana University. William Ketcham’s maternal grandfather, Samuel Merrill (1792-1855), came to Indiana in 1816, the year that it became the nineteenth state, and was Indiana’s first treasurer. Sam Merrill was the man who led the wagon caravan from Corydon to Indianapolis

Scupper box has the initials of the original homeowner and a fleur-de-lis soldered onto the copper

late in 1824, moving all of the state’s records, office equipment, and funds from the old capitol to the new capitol. Mrs. Ketcham’s father, David McDonald (1803-1869), settled in Bloomington in the 1820s, was a United States District Court Judge, and was the first professor of law at the Indiana University School of Law. William Ketcham himself was an officer in the Civil War, Commander in Chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, and served two terms as Attorney General of Indiana. Atop the knoll between what is now the west side of the 4100 block of Illinois Street and the east side of the 4100 block of Capitol Avenue, William and Flora Ketcham built a 19-room mansion. Locals referred to the family’s property as “Ketcham Hill” and “Ketcham Woods,” which were obvious references to its physical setting. However, the family also called their house “Robinwood.” The Ketchams reared seven children there: Flora, Agnes, Jane, Lilla, Henry, Lucia, and Dorothy. They became doctors, lawyers, and teachers. Robinwood might still be standing today, had it not been destroyed by a devastating fire in the winter of 1923. For about a year after the fire, the Mapleton Civic Association, a forerunner of the Butler-Tarkington Neighborhood Association (BTNA), lobbied the City of Indianapolis to buy the Ketchams’ land and make it into a community park. The nearby 300-acre Fairview Park had for many years been a popular recreational location for Mapleton residents, but in 1922, Fairview Park had been purchased by Irvington-based Butler College and would soon become the new campus of Butler University. Mapleton residents were concerned about no longer having a nearby park. The City of Indianapolis and the 78-year-old, widowed Flora Ketcham could not reach an agreement, so in 1924, Mrs. Ketcham split the acreage into fourteen building lots. Fortunately, for the Wainwrights, the Cochrans, and the Achesons, four of those lots have been “home” for their families for nearly a century. Fortunately, for St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild, the Wainwright-Cochran House is “home” to the 57th Annual Decorators’ Show House and Gardens in April and May of 2018.

The history of the property and its owners was researched and written by Guild member Sharon Butsch Freeland.

AREA DESCRIPTION This room is dramatic, with its curved windows overlooking the front yard of the home. The French style desk (once owned by Booth Tarkington) is showcased in the middle of the windows. A pair of transitional chairs face the front yard, making this an ideal place to lounge or read a good book. The bookcases flanking the room house a large collection of antique books owned by the homeowner. The large-scale zebra print fabric on the wing chair is a great backdrop to this wonderful room.

A Room with a View

AREA DESCRIPTION The exaggerated bay windows are reminiscent of the bow of a ship and afford stunning views from inside the house. We were inspired to create a stateroom of our own by mixing warm woods, polished metals, and glass with neutral textured fabrics. We’ve framed this view with energetic “hot spice” fabric drapery—with this color echoing throughout the room. Natural gemstone treasures combine with elegant compositions by nationally acclaimed artist Rita Spalding. Whimsy is introduced with a collection of patchwork pillows from the Ugly Pillow Company. The modern furnishings in neutral tones complement the traditional elements of the home and create an inviting and restful retreat.

Jack and Jill Bath

elissa decker interior design


AREA DESCRIPTION The Jack and Jill bath was updated a few years ago with timeless details like the Carrara marble wainscoting. Working with existing elements, the design inspiration for this room came from the whimsical Cole & Son Butterflies and Dragonflies Wallpaper. The matte black Brizo fixtures and accessories were chosen because of their classic look yet modern finish, using hues of green, black, and gold to blend the old with the new, such as the Lucite cabinet hardware. The custom roman shade opens to the original windows which display the beautiful view of the wooded front yard.

BRIZO The exclusive Jason Wu for Brizo™ Bath Collection of faucets, showers and accessories in the Matte Black finish combines the aesthetic sense of a renowned fashion designer with Brizo product design and innovation.

AREA DESCRIPTION By removing a wall, two small bedrooms became one, taking this area back to the home’s original floor plan when the house was built.

Master Bedroom

compass design, llc


AREA DESCRIPTION The Master Bedroom is meant to be a retreat to escape the stresses of each day. The position of the bed facing the original French doors overlooking the balcony was purposeful, to wake up each morning to the beauty of the outdoors. The walls were kept light and the original paneling detail in a crisp white to keep the space fresh. The pops of black, sea-glass, and persimmon give the space some warmth. The soft wood tones of the nightstands and dresser contrast with the dark wood floors. The washed linen bedding, custom velvet bed, and soft rug underfoot add depth and texture. The overall concept was a relaxing space that felt well-traveled and sophisticated.

AREA DESCRIPTION The original master bathroom in this home required improvements to the layout and a dramatic update to the finishes in the space.

3rd Floor Stairs, Landing & Hall alison noel custom interiors


AREA DESCRIPTION This area started out as a dark, cramped space lacking originality. I wanted to highlight the height of the 3rd floor by drawing the eye up toward the dramatic black ceiling, gold pendant lights, and contrasting ivory walls. I also wanted to incorporate an antique Turkish runner and vintage artwork as a nod to the time period in which this gorgeous home was built. The black and white photography displayed in the 3rd floor hallway was taken during a recent trip to Antelope Canyon in Arizona. By combining antiques with contemporary decor in a sophisticated color palette, this space has transformed into an elegant, glamorous area.

3rd Floor “Beam Me Up” Bath bob mead interiors, inc.

AREA DESCRIPTION This very small bathroom was added to the attic space a number of years ago. Nothing seems to fit, but it is functional. My job was to make the best of a difficult situation. I replaced a small, picture-framed medicine cabinet with a larger one that has a full sheet of mirror. Installing a new Delta toilet and faucet, along with many accessories from Delta’s “Tesla” collection, blends beautifully with Indiana Lighting Center’s “Tessa” light fixture. This room now functions at its full capacity and is able to service two bedrooms.

DELTA With smooth, elegant lines, the Tesla® Bath Collection faucet and coordinating accessories create a soft, contemporary look in the space. The In2ition® Two-in-One Shower with H2Okinetic® Technology delivers a warmer, drenching spray wherever you want it. The WaterSense®-labeled Delta Turner® dual-flush toilet offers two flush options to conserve water without sacrificing performance.

Guest Retreat db interiors, llc


AREA DESCRIPTION A vintage velvet grey daybed adds texture to this bedroom, with layers of bedding and accent pillows to welcome any guest. The vertical window treatments with greys, blacks, and light silver create an illusion of height with the changing ceiling/wall slopes in this small space. The accent chair in faux alligator leather and glass side table are simple yet glamorous. The bedroom is a transitional space on the edge of sophistication.

Mickey’s Hideaway ethan allen

AREA DESCRIPTION Mickey’s Hideaway is the delightful hideout of every child, young and old! The area highlights several pieces from the whimsical yet sophisticated Ethan Allen/Disney collection, enchanting guests of every age. The Dream Time bed takes center stage, flanked by two Shadow Cabinets featuring Mickey and his favorite gal-pal Minnie. Other favorites in the room are the two Character Chests, tucked under the dormers, which feature Mickey taking the first selfie alongside his faithful friend Pluto! Mickey’s favorite colors of red, yellow, and blue provide pops of color in the room against the black and white furniture.

acheson, rines and france, design & build / mary kay kiefer design group, inc.


AREA DESCRIPTION Steadfast in preserving the stateliness and architectural elements of the English Tudor style, this area features solid oak floors, a newly constructed coffered ceiling, and the sophistication of inset kitchen cabinetry. Together these elements create a spacious, well-equipped kitchen where today’s family can gather to prepare a meal and share the events of the day. Natural granite and travertine countertops and backsplash, warm taupe colors with accents of luxurious gold hardware, and pops of color complete the look. Keeping the family’s lifestyle in mind, homeowners Don and Clare Acheson were instrumental as the core team required to complete this task.

BRIZO The Litze™ Kitchen Collection by Brizo® melds a clean, contemporary sensibility with a crafted style. With SmartTouch® Technology on the pull-down faucet, the water can be activated with a simple touch, bringing a new level of convenience to the kitchen. The Euro deck-mount pot filler provides twice the flow rate of standard kitchen faucets, making it easy to fill large cooking vessels quickly. The faucets and coordinating Litze accessories, including rotating double robe hooks, mini towel bars and drawer hardware, are shown in the Brilliance® Luxe Gold™ finish.

Dining Room

AREA DESCRIPTION Inspired by the homeowners’ vintage table and chairs, the dining room fuses styles to create a unique design scheme. Warm wood tones and textures are accentuated by natural light, while the neutral paint palette highlights the ornate millwork. Traditional furnishings, energetic textiles, and unconventional lighting are combined to create an ambiance that invites you to forgo your dinner reservations and dine in with family and friends.

Butler’s Pantry

acheson, rines and france, design & build / mary kay kiefer design group, inc.


AREA DESCRIPTION Acheson’s vision for the butler’s pantry and kitchen was to both honor the history of the home while bowing (a little) to the changes in technology over the past century. Having shared many family holidays and events through the years, Don and Clare wish to maintain these areas as the “heart” of the home in the years ahead. The butler’s pantry is highlighted by the glass and stone backsplash complementing the original cabinets with newer, warmer paint colors (neutrals and taupes). Strict coordination with the kitchen’s design theme was an integral part of the overall scheme. Adherence to the historical theme was aided by inclusion of accessories provided by the wonderful Charles Mayer & Co. (est. 1840). Can you find the whimsical dragon in the room?

BRIZO Shown in the Brilliance® Luxe Gold™ finish, the design of the Litze™ bar faucet with square spout and coordinating drawer hardware was inspired by the revival of the arts and crafts movement. Textured knurling on the faucet handle provides functional benefits while celebrating the beauty of craftsmanship.

Great Room

kittle’s design studio


AREA DESCRIPTION What could be more pertinent in today’s lifestyle than a “great” room? The newly created space, which was originally a garage, is now the heart of family living. Once the original screened-in porch became the formal dining room, I knew my goal was to create that transition to the outdoors and lose the formality of the home. French doors were added, and these doors are now the looking glass to the outdoors. Sitting in this room and enjoying the placement of the bay window opposite the French doors brings a breath of freshness to a very historic home. The family who lives here will continue to enjoy being together and appreciating the changing scenery of their view through the “Looking Glass.”

Woodland Hideaway

chatham home


AREA DESCRIPTION The children’s playhouse in the back garden provided the designers of Chatham Home with the perfect opportunity to create a whimsical woodland hideaway. The wall mural sets the tone for the overall theme of the space, with colorful flowers and forest creatures roaming between the trees. An exotic live edge wood table serves as the centerpiece of the tiny house and is surrounded by handmade toadstools, which are ideal to perch on for teatime on the “grass” shag rug. Exterior paint was chosen to brighten up the playhouse, and create a welcoming atmosphere for play.

St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild is often asked, “how is a home selected to be a show house?”

The process of selecting a home to be transformed into the Decorators’ Show House and Gardens begins almost two years prior to the opening of the house for public tours. Ideas for potential Show Houses come from interested homeowners, real estate agents, surveys of desired neighborhoods, and other contacts in the community. To be selected, a home must be spacious enough to accommodate multiple design areas, have front and back staircases, a central entrance hall, a substantial garage or carriage house area, a sizeable lawn, outdoor area to accommodate landscapers’ designs and be of sufficient interest and character to attract the public. Decorators’ Show House and Gardens is most successful when it can exhibit examples of many designers’ creativity, both interior and exterior, while keeping the overall impression of the house that of a coordinated and integrated design scheme. The event is not a custom decorating service for homeowners. Designers are given freedom

of expression in their areas, although there are guidelines for reasonable adaptations to color schemes and themes that flow from room to room. The Guild each year creates a Design Board made up of selected designers and Guild chair persons. This Board oversees area selection and design proposals from designers on the design of their areas. Being a Decorators’ Show House and Gardens homeowner is an exciting and rewarding experience. It is most gratifying to be part of the longest, continuously running Show House in the country and raise funds for an excellent cause—Eskenazi Health. If you are open to new design ideas and current design trends, if you are comfortable making decisions, and if you are flexible and can adapt to change, then please give consideration to becoming a future Decorators’ Show House homeowner. Please contact the St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild at www.showhouseindy.org.
