Visitors to this year’s Mpls.St.Paul Magazine ASID MN Showcase Home will be transported to a place with sandy beaches, lapping waves and salty air, without leaving the city limits of Minneapolis.

Lovers of the sand and sea, homeowners Mark and Susan Lacek decided on a “coastal-chic” theme for their new home, and worked with a team of 27 certified American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) to transform their 1920s Tudor near Lake Harriet to a beach-style retreat. The Showcase Home, presented by Cambria, opened for viewing on September 19.  This will be the last weekend it is available for viewing.
