Showhouse for a Cure, located at 2022 East Lafayette Place, Milwaukee.  The Showhouse is open to the public May 31 – June 15.  Times vary.  Each room was decorated by one of the area’s top interior designers, providing a look at the latest design trends and offering inspirational home decorating ideas.
