The popular “Holiday Splendor at the Payne Mansion” designer showhouse, produced annually by the Florida West Coast Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), will return to Selby Gardens this holiday season. Talented area designers transform the Museum of Botany & the Arts into a dazzling holiday spectacle. “Bromeliads will be the unifying design theme this year,” said Will Brown, ASID past president and event chair. ASID members apply fresh, vibrant wall colors, install elegant furnishing, lighting, floor treatments, and add sparkling holiday decorations in the charming Southern Colonial home.
The 2012 holiday showhouse attracted approximately 16,000 visitors - the highest visitor attendance for any Sarasota Showhouse. The display runs daily, December 15 through January 2 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and after hours during Lights in Bloom, December 15 – 23 and 26 & 27.
Day entry is included in the price of admission to the Gardens. Evening entry is included in the price of Lights in Bloom admission.
