Michigan Design Center (MDC), in coordination with Detroit Public Television (DPTV), offers the rare opportunity to see how interior designers furnish their own residences in their bi-annual Home Tour. For the first time, the tour will be presented as an hour-long video program that will be available for ticketholders to watch any time from Friday, September 17 through Monday, September 27. This video presentation tour, hosted by DPTV’s Fred Nahat, will provide an intimate glimpse into the personal homes of six seasoned professional interior designers, including the residences of Dawn Jacobs, Annie Kordas, Rachel Nelson, and Cheryl Nestro along with the vacation homes of Barry Harrison and Kevin Serba. The homes span the state of Michigan, from the Grosse Pointes to Saugatuck, with several spectacular stops in between.
“We’re really excited to present our fifth home tour in a video format this year,” says MDC General Manager and Executive Vice President Susan Todebush. “We were able to expand our geographic area in a way not possible with previous in-person tours. Additionally, Fred Nahat is such a charismatic host and his ability to personally interview each designer in their own space will provide viewers much deeper insight into the design process behind these unique homes.”
Net ticket proceeds will benefit DPTV and their non-commercial, educational programming. Single tickets are $25, and watch party tickets, for more than one viewer, are $40. All watch party ticket purchasers will be entered to win a $1,000 gift certificate for a shopping spree at Michigan Design Center’s 35+ showrooms!
Tickets are available for purchase at michigandesign.com starting August 2.
