The Decorators' Show House, a biennial fundraiser for the Columbus Museum of Art, is featuring a 1924 Tudor revival home in Upper Arlington at 2575 Leeds Road. The Show House is open to the public through May 10.

The home's 22 interior rooms and four outdoor spaces were transformed into showrooms by some of Ohio's top interior decorators and landscape designers.

At 8,000 square feet, the Leeds Road home is one of the largest in the history of the Decorators' Show House, a Columbus tradition since 1975.

"This property sits on an acre, and that's bigger than properties we've had in the past," said Melanie Brown, a member of the museum's women's board, which presents the Decorators' Show House in conjunction with the American Society of Interior Designers, Local 32.

The Leeds Road home was built in 1924 by Henry Theodore Phillips, president of the Phillips Printing Company. The home is currently owned by the Galbreath family. Liz Galbreath was a founder and former president of the Women's Board and was instrumental in bringing the first Show House to Columbus.

Four different landscaping companies created colorful gardens around the grounds and Fortin Ironworks provided benches and other functional iron pieces. Adding to the outdoor design are six sculptures by internationally acclaimed artist David Hostetler. The art deco sculptures evoke the home's 1920s architecture.

"They're placed throughout the property and they really add something," Brown said.

Women's board members volunteer as guides for the Show House, explaining in meticulous detail what's been added by each designer. The designers supply their own materials and donate their time to transform each room with their own vision.

"This is a great opportunity for them to showcase their work," said Carole Chidester, another women's board member.

The rooms range from an elegant dining room decorated in rich red tones, designed by Terri Slee, to a spacious, ultra-modern wine cellar designed by David Berg.

Many of the rooms were decorated with eco-friendly materials. Designer M.K. Piras redecorated a caterer's kitchen entirely with materials that were either reclaimed or produced with "green" technologies.

The "green" caterer's kitchen includes items such as a bamboo backsplash, quartz countertops and recycled tiles.

"We can use materials that are healthy for us, and we don't have to sacrifice beauty," Piras said.

Most of the furnishings in each room are available for purchase. The Decorators' Show House also includes a shop with eclectic items donated by women's board members and a café.

The Decorators' Show House has become a major fundraiser for the museum. Recent Show Houses have raised more than $300,000 each and attracted public attendance of 18,000 visitors.

Tickets are available online at Columbusmuseum.org. Admission at the door is $20. Hours of operation are Tuesday-Thursday, 10:30 a.m.-8 p.m.; Friday-Sunday, 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m. "Meet the Designers" evenings are held Wednesdays, 6-8 p.m.
