Philadelphia Design Home & EP Henry

I was fortunate to have been given the opportunity to attend the Philadelphia Design Home through an exclusive invitation through EP Henry. At the time of the invitation, I didn’t really see the connection between my pre- and postnatal products store blog and the Philadelphia Design Home. I hopped on the internet to check it out and learned that the proceeds from ticket sales go to support Ronald McDonald’s Charities. Moreover, EP Henry supports Ronald McDonald’s Charities directly. I was so impressed. Any company that donates time and money to children and family charities as we do at deserves to be supported, so graciously accepted.

The event was held on the EP Henry patio/pool deck. It was an amazing showpiece. Every design detail was breathtaking. Of the entire house, this was my favorite “room”:

This was an all weather outdoor living area with an all weather television. It is perfect for entertaining guests and just luxuriating in your outdoor space. EP Henry really took the imagination to a different level with this design. And while I thought that they were limited to just outdoor living products, I went downstairs to the basement level where yet another living space was transformed into something spectacular.

This basement bar looks better than my kitchen! The EP Henry products give the room texture and warmth, something that is needed in a space that is usually cold and off-putting. I put together a little presentation on Whrrl that highlights other parts of the house. I used my iPhone (which is why I am using EP Henry’s photos as opposed to mine).

There is no photo that can do this house justice. You must see it for yourself, but you have to hurry. The Philadelphia Magazine Design Home closes its doors on October 10th. This may be the only time you can experience a $6.9 million home. Remember, all proceeds go to Ronald McDonald Charities, which houses families while their critically ill children are in the hospital, such an amazing cause.

*Disclaimer – I was not paid to write this article. All opinions are mine. The tour was complimentary and I did happen to drink 2 martinis during the patio party. EP Henry gave both my husband and I a gift bag that had promotional products and information from many of the vendors. They also used their fancy software to show me what an EP Henry designed backyard could look like. They can do the same for you!
