MILIEU Designer Showhouse 2020
Benefitting Clayton Dabney for Kids with Cancer
Houston, TX


We are announcing an updated schedule for tours of the MILIEU Designer Showhouse 2020 with visitors' health and safety as its first concern. 


The MILIEU Designer Showhouse will be open for two weekends—Saturday, June 6th; Sunday, June 7th; Saturday, June 13th; and Sunday, June 14th. Guests will be allowed into the house in small increments, allowing for safe social-distancing practices. All ticket sales will benefit Clayton Dabney for Kids with Cancer (


“We have thought long and hard about how and when to proceed with the event, given that our first concern is the health, well-being, and continued safety of everyone involved with the Showhouse and Clayton Dabney,” says Pamela Pierce, Founder and Editor in Chief of MILIEU. “We remain cautious but confident that we can open the Showhouse in June, in a limited capacity, but one that still fully celebrates the achievements of our talented designers.”


Located in Houston’s historic River Oaks neighborhood, the Showhouse has been constructed by custom homebuilder, Jennifer Hamelet of Mirador Builders. Under the direction of MILIEU’s 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.


The 7,400-sq.-ft., Edwin Lutyens–style house will exemplify enlightened and enlightening interiors, exteriors, and architectural elements to inspire visitors with intriguing room elements, engaging product introductions, and innovative sensibilities that will raise the new standards of design.


We hope you can be in Houston and enjoy one of the tours!
