2010 Pink Ribbon Show House in Houston

Houston's Pink Ribbon Show house Opens  -- Today -- 
Friday, April 16.
For Those of You Unable to Go Visit It Personally, We Can Tour Parts of It Here. 
This Will Be a Two-Part Post. 

Interior Designer Julia Blailock of Blailock Designs decorated this formal dining room. The plaster walls incorporate a soft stenciled pattern by Leslie Sinclair of Segreto Finishes .

Interesting timing on this post.  I just re-connected with a friend whom I haven't seen or spoken with in way too many years.  There was no intent to go absent on one another. It happens when you live in different states, and children and life in general just kind of take over.  In her recent email, she confided that she had experienced a really tough year, having being diagnosed with breast cancer and then coping with a challenging treatment regime. 
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in her lifetime. We all know someone or will . . . .  Thank goodness we have such big-hearted people, such as the seven designers, the stores that loaned merchandise, the builder (Levitt Partnership) and architect (Hollenbeck ) -- not to mention the many behind-the-scenes volunteers -- who made this project happen -- all for the purpose of raising both awareness and funds to prevent and fight breast cancer!

What a beautiful scrubbed oak dining table. I like the upholstery, too, as it enlivens the soft look.

The 2010 Pink Ribbon House, located at 10807 Bridlewood Street in Hunters Creek Village, is the fifth to be built. Tickets are $15 per person. Tour times, should you be in the "neighborhood:"
April 16, 17, 18 and April 23, 24, 25
Fridays: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Saturdays: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Sundays: noon - 5 p.m

This French Country-style house features 5 bedrooms, 6.5 baths, vaulted ceilings, a walk-through wine room and an outdoor kitchen with fireplace. It is on the market now for a little more than $2.7 million, should you be interested....

Ticket sales, sponsorships . . . these collected monies benefit The Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center at Baylor College of Medicine , a cornerstone of the Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center at Baylor College of Medicine, which brings together research, patient care, education and outreach activities from BCM and its affiliated hospitals to advance the fight against this devastating disease. The Duncan Cancer Center has been named a designated cancer center by the National Cancer Institute, a significant milestone that opens the doors for additional funding to combat cancer. It is one of two NCI-designated centers in Houston.

Designer Cindy Dickerson coordinated the look of the Pink Ribbon House, and Leslie Sinclair did all the plaster, stenciling and paint/finishes. I also thank Leslie so very much for providing these shots for me! I'm going through more, and will post in a couple of days images of Julie Dodson's master suite, Suzanne Duin's kitchen and family room, Katie Galliano's study, Christine Ho's media room. Hope you'll come back to visit and see their work!

Susan, thanks so much for sharing this beautiful home. I love going on home tours. Atlanta area has a few each year. Can't quite make it to this one so I look forward to more pictures.

Beautiful home, wonderful cause. I love home tours too so it's really fun to be able to see what is going on in other parts of the country. Nice photography too. The large bookcase in the living room is to die for. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Susan- I'm here in Houston and just so happen to be Katie Galliano's neighbor/friend. I'm hoping to get to see the house this weekend, it looks amazing! Not sure about the other designers but Katie is one talented lady!
Happy Friday to you.

PS- I'm actually from Denver! Moved here to Houston 7 years ago.

Worthy cause. Just had my yearly mammogram a few weeks ago. Been lucky so far! Wish I were closer and I'd come tour the house. I am in East Texas, but a bit of a far drive.

I love that butler's pantry! Such beautiful glass, and a great design in the panes. Thank you for sharing!
