Last chance to purchase tickets at the best price for the NHHS Home Tour 

The Newport Harbor Home Tour and the Newport Harbor Educational Foundation is featuring a very special Home Tour this year. Beginning on Thursday, May 13 and presented by Barclay Butera Interiors, this 23rd annual fundraiser continues the tradition of presenting a diverse selection of design styles in home décor…virtually.

Tickets, only available online, are $50 to watch the video and receive the beautiful printed “Look Book,” a magazine-style brochure featuring all the homes on the tour. Buy them today, as the ticket price increases to $65 tomorrow, May 1.

BONUS! For each ticket purchased, you’ll be entered in a drawing to win a $500 gift certificate to South Coast Plaza and a one-night stay at the Balboa Bay Resort.

During the tour, come meet Denise Morrison, founder and principal of Denise Morrison Designs. She is one of the interior designers whose work is showcased this year. For as long as she can remember, Morrison was obsessed with redesigning her family homes, moving furniture to make the rooms prettier and more comfortable. She studied at Cal State Fullerton, where she learned her trademark design principle: tension, which translates to a beautiful antique with a modern sofa…or a vibrant painting in a cool, minimal living room. It’s this tension and balance between design elements that sets the framework for unforgettable design.

The Home Tour invites you to view seven beautiful homes throughout Newport Beach in a professionally filmed “Virtual Showcase,” so you can experience the tour at your own convenience with the on demand-style viewing option. From the Bayfront to Newport Heights, Dover Shores to the Upper Newport Bay, you’ll get an in-depth look into each one of these gorgeous residences.

In addition, interior designer Barclay Butera will share a rare glimpse at his Palm Springs residence located in a classic gated Spanish compound, complimented with lush grounds and an abundance of citrus trees. Butera is featured in a welcoming video, so expect the unexpected and take advantage of him revealing some “inside decorating secrets.” He has been a sponsor of the Home Tour since its inception and usually hosts the after-party at his Westcliff store. Since that is not possible this year, he has agreed to have guests “step inside” his home.

Shop the online Boutique and local pop-up shops showcasing unique vendors/stores, and purchase home décor looks from their featured interior designers. Dine locally and purchase a luncheon voucher for Greenleaf Kitchen & Cocktails (Costa Mesa location) while shopping and supporting local businesses.

As the most important fundraiser of the year for the Newport Harbor Educational Foundation, this event directly provides funds for academic support programs at Newport Harbor High School such as instructional supplies, a nurse’s aide, academic department support, international baccalaureate, field studies, school safety and professional development for faculty.
