The Pasadena Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers will host its 27th Annual Home and Kitchen Tour, October 6, 2013. This year the Pasadena Home & Kitchen Tour will present “A Day of Great Design” featuring four spectacular homes professionally designed by members of the Pasadena Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers.
The self-guided tour of homes, located in Pasadena, Arcadia and La Cañada, offers a variety of architectural styles, from a “green” up-country home, to a modern ranch, a French colonial, and a welcoming contemporary home. Along with the interiors, you may enjoy the beautiful landscaping and outdoor entertaining spaces. The designers and docents will be on hand to answer questions. Ticket holders can also shop in a collection of unique boutiques, offering gifts, clothing, accessories and more, and view the latest in home products from sponsors and industry partners.

Every year, ASID selects a project for community outreach, furthering their wish to give back to the community. They know that changing the interior of a space can have a huge impact on it’s inhabitants and working with a charity allows them to help people that may not otherwise work with a designer.
This year, ASID chose the Pasadena Senior Center. This center is a place where many people come to learn, socialize and eat. Approximately 400 people visit the Senior Center every day. It is well known in the area as a lively place to congregate with friends and learn something new. The center offers many classes on everything from art to yoga. They believe that retirement is a time to be active and enjoy .
The main room of the facility is the Scott Pavilion. Many classes are held there and they regularly offer lunch. It is also used as a church on Sundays and rented out for retirement parties, birthdays , weddings and other events. This room was the main focus of the Design Society’s renovation and has received quite a makeover, including a new floor, new paint and storage. The room quickly has become a multifunctional elegant space that gives a whole new look to the center. ASID was also able to paint the remainder of the public rooms, adding more life and visual interest. Stop by and take a look at the transformation, listen to the piano or take a class.
The Pasadena Senior Center is at 85 E Holly St, Pasadena, CA 91103. Their phone is (626) 795-4331.
