The Mansion in May showhouse, benefiting the Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center, will unfold this spring in Morris Township, New Jersey. More than 45 designers will transform the space, Alnwick Hall (also known as The Abbey), a brick mansion designed by architect Percy Griffin and built between 1903 and 1904.

Among the participating interior and landscape designers are Susan M. Niblo Ltd., Accents by Design, Kristin Ashley Interiors, Bosenberg & Company, CW&I Design, Raiser Contracting, Landscapes by Claudio, Gaia Gardens and others.
The co-chairs for this year’s Mansion in May are Katie Nolle and Megan Cassie Schubiger, who are working in tandem with interior design chairs Susan Kiernan, Katherine Sheeleigh and Louetta Shioleno. The showhouse, which is usually held every other year, was founded in 1974 and has raised more than $10 million for various causes at the Morristown Medical Center.
“With over 20,000 square feet of house and 42 interior spaces, our designers have submitted unique and exquisite proposals; many of them gleaned from their personal experiences, including their travels throughout the world, their design work in all sizes and types of residences, and their backgrounds of using color, texture, and design elements to create new concepts. This year’s Abbey will be truly exceptional,” says Sheeleigh.
