Swan Hospitality Group and Decor Maine are excited to announce the selection of Bar Harbor’s 2023 Designer Showhouse, open for tours Sunday, July 30 through Saturday, August 19, 2023. Mount Desert Island Hospital will be the beneficiary of donations from the show.
High up on Hamilton Hill, the mansion on property that once belonged to Alexander Hamilton’s great grandson will undergo a major transformation with the help of a host of designers. Something that won’t be changed? The ballroom’s dramatic chandelier and the massive marble staircase.
“This is a quirky house, I’ve called it a carnival of eccentricities in the past,” says Kim Swan of Swan Agency, the Showhouse’s Creative Director.. “With that in mind, several of us decided that the Showhouse should embrace the fantastical and allow the designers to go as extreme as they want in the design. That will also make it a wonderful spectacle for those touring the home.”
Hamilton Hill will be the fourth Bar Harbor Designer Showhouse following Brightholme, Vanderbilt Carriage House and La Rochelle. The 2023 roster includes both returning and new designers to the team promising the most exciting and talent filled Showhouse to date.
The preview party will be held on July 29, 2023
The showhouse tours will run from Sunday, July 30, 2023 – Saturday, August 19, 2023
Tickets will be available for purchase here, beginning May 1, 2023.
