Designs for Living Home Tour benefits Music in the Mountains

The annual fall Designs for Living Home Tour will be Saturday and Sunday. This event, which showcases local homes, benefits Music in the Mountains.

This year six houses have been selected around Nevada City — to give visitors time to get to all the houses they want, and still be able to enjoy their time there, organizers said.

The houses are selected for their “curiosity, variety and inspiration,” Chairperson Celia Edwards said.

From casual elegance to traditional to sophisticated modern, there is something for everyone when it comes to architecture and design.

The tour is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Guests are invited to have lunch at home No. 4, where Emily’s Cakes and Catering will offer a selection of sandwiches, salad and fruit. Lunch is $10 with $5 for wine and beer.

Home tour tickets are $25 in advance or $30 on the day of the tour and include access to all six homes, as well as coffee from Sierra Mountain Coffee Roasters and dessert. Sierra Mountain has created a special roast just for Designs for Living guests. To purchase advance tickets, go to Music in the Mountains box office at, or call (530) 265-6124. Tickets are also available at SPD Markets, BriarPatch Co-op and The Union. On Saturday and Sunday, tickets can be purchased at any home.
