The Lake Forest Showhouse & Gardens opens this weekend benefitting Infant Welfare Society of Chicago. And I know I say this about every Showhouse, but I think this one is my favorite! ? There are so many beautiful spaces, inside and out, and it’s such a treat to be able to enjoy it during the summer! Visit the Lake Forest Showhouse & Gardens website to purchase tickets, make a donation, and to see how the board has made it safe for you to visit. To get you excited, here are a few sneak peeks of this amazing home. (The Lake Forest Showhouse & Gardens is open from July 11- August 9. Tickets must be purchased in advance of your visit.)

A 16-foot tall garden folly, constructed by Bulley & Andrews (in collaboration with Parenti & Raffaelli, Hull Millwork, and Hester Painting & Decorating) and designed by Manhattan-based architecture firm Bories & Shearron, is available for purchase with 100% of the sale price benefitting Infant Welfare Society of Chicago.
