MILIEU Designer Showhouse 2020
Benefitting Clayton Dabney for Kids with Cancer

Please note the rescheduled dates for the Showhouse events below.

MILIEU is thrilled to announce its first Designer Showhouse in its home of Houston, Texas. We are partnering with an extraordinary Texas-based charity, Clayton Dabney for Kids with Cancer, and premiere custom homebuilder, Mirador Builders.

Located in Houston's prestigious and historic River Oaks neighborhood, the Showhouse, a custom 7,400 Sqft Edwin Lutyens–style home, is constructed by Jennifer Hamelet of Mirador Builders. Under the direction of MILIEU's Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Pamela Pierce, a talented ensemble of distinguished interior designers from across the United States, Canada, and Europe will transform the house with a fresh, sophisticated aesthetic reflective of Houston's richly layered design sensibilities.

"It makes sense for us to debut our first Showhouse in our very own home city of Houston, where there's a large and supportive design community. People here pay attention to sophisticated design, and, it is my honor to invite this caliber of designers to showcase their work for an extraordinary cause."-Pamela Pierce

An opening preview party, entitled "Angels by Design", will take place at the Showhouse the evening of Thursday, May 14, 2020. It will be hosted by Clayton Dabney for Kids with Cancer and chaired by Mary Groves and Alex Stillwell. "Angels by Design" marks the 13th annual Kissed by an Angel Houston fundraising event. Ticketed tours will be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday, May 16-17 and Saturday and Sunday, May 23-24, 2020 from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Proceeds from the "Angels by Design" preview party and weekend tours will benefit Clayton Dabney for Kids with Cancer.

"Clayton Dabney is very dear to my heart, and I was proud to have served as a board member for years. Now that we're hosting our first Showhouse, I'm happy to know that a significant portion of the proceeds from the event will go directly to the charity."- Pamela Pierce
