Tour Recap of the BLVD Show House


Thank you to everyone who made the BLVD Show House such a great success! We’re so grateful to everyone who purchased a ticket and toured the Show House. Over 600 guests toured the home and we raised more than $12,000 for Preservation Houston with your help!

We had an absolutely incredible team of sponsors and my entire team from Laura U that helped turn this old house into a real beauty. I cannot wait to show you all of the final images of the project, but we’ve got some big plans in the works that require us to keep them secret for now. 

What I can share, however, are some great photos captured at the BLVD House Warming Party we threw to celebrate all of our build partners and sponsors who, without them, none of this would be possible. Special thank you to Amy McAnally from Luxe Magazine for making this event happen and to Chef Jon from Monogram who flew in all the way from Chicago to serve up some of the best appetizers I’ve ever had!

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for our full sponsor list. Stay tuned for more to come!
