Philly Mag’s Design Home 2016 Returns to Center City

Philly Mag’s Design Home 2016 Returns to Center City

Good Monday. Hope you had an amazing weekend. Every once in a blue moon I lose my notebook, and this is one of those times. My notebook is probably on some food counter in Philadelphia next to my credit card, which went missing the same night. It’s ok we don’t have names of attendees as this column is more visual, the notable or celebrity as you will is the house. I’m going to show you a little bit about the Philadelphia Magazine’s Design Home® , but I don’t want to spoil it for you.

Shining brighter than the house is the women who works tirelessly to execute the production of the project and that’s

Philadelphia Magazine (I have an online column and in the magazine column at PhillyMag) has been building homes in the greater Philadelphia area for 13 years. A showcase for high-end home building and decorating, the magazine has built multi-million-dollar homes in Delaware, New Jersey and many other locations around the greater Philadelphia area. Design Home® 2016 is a symbiosis of old and new. For the first time in 13 years, Design Home® returns to the City of Brotherly Love, located in an uber-luxurious townhouse development in Philadelphia’s historic Society Hill. Get your exclusive look at Philadelphia magazine’s 2016 Design Home® with 100% of the proceeds benefiting MANNA. Tours run from 11am-4pm. Closed Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. TICKETS HERE

OK now if you want to see some of the home proceed, but it doesn’t do it any justice. See it in person.

You could be here right now, or moved in by the new year.
Go check out the Philadelphia Design Home

through November 6

In the meantime, I’ll be in bed. You, you should call out of work sick and go see the Philadelphia Design Home, and then bum around the City.
This weather certainly won’t last.
