Bellarmine Designers’ Show House Goes Scottish at the Inverness

Sep 03, 2010

The 37th annual Bellarmine University Women's Council Designers' Show House event will feature the Inverness Condominiums in the historic Cherokee Triangle area. The show house runs September 11 to 26, at 966 Cherokee Rd.

Once the Charles P. Moorman Home for Women, Joseph and Joseph Architects have transformed the building into elegant, Scotland-inspired Highland homes. Three units -- Edinburgh, Perth and Aberdeen -- will be decorated by several area designers and open for tours during the event.
