BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It’s one of Baltimore’s most popular fundraisers, and this year it will take place in a unique setting.

Ron Matz reports the Baltimore Symphony Associates’ Decorators’ Show House is moving downtown with a waterfront view.

The views from the Ritz Carlton Residences are spectacular. Two luxury condos are the unique setting for this year’s Decorators’ Show House. This is the “ritzy retreat.”

“What I love about it is there are two condos, exact same floor plans that mirror each other, so everybody has an opportunity to see what two designers do in the exact same space. I designed one bedroom, the ‘Ritzy Retreat.’ My inspiration really was the water. I wanted soft blue greens. I used the whites and creams for something relaxing and calming,” said Paula Henry, Simply Put Interiors. “It’s an extreme honor to be part of this show house because I’m working with very talented designers. To be in their midst is humbling for me and to be working for such a great charity is really good.”

Starting Saturday you’ll have a chance to see the work of 25 designers and check out two condos that are on the market.

“We are just so happy and so proud to be part of this and to be part of an event that is a month long. We’re looking forward to continuing our relationship with the BSO and this event,” said Joe Graziose, RXR Senior Vice President. “This project is a condominium project. It’s not a hotel. There are 190 units. As of today we have about 60 sold and about 20 under contract. These two units are obviously on the market.”

You can live it up on the water, enjoying Susan Herbert’s purple passion bedroom.

“It’s called the Purple Passion bedroom. I call it that because that’s what a bedroom should be about. It should be passion, rich, luxurious and sophisticated, especially in this setting on a beautiful harbor,” said Susan Herbert, SH Interior Design LLC.

One of the great things about the Decorators’ Show House, most of the furnishings and accessories are for sale, like the light fixture or sofas.

“People can purchase some items. The furnishings and accessories stay until the final day, which is May 30, and then they are available for pick-up the first week in June,” said Herbert.

It’s a suite symphony for the BSO.

“While seeing this as an opportunity for us to be a good corporate citizen with the BSO, it’s also a great opportunity to showcase the lifestyle in downtown living. We like to say our property is probably one of the best properties to live in downtown,” said Graziose.

The Decorators’ Show House raises money for the BSO’s educational programs. Tickets are $25 in advance.
