The annual autumn home tour is a self-guided tour of mid-century homes in Des Moines and its neighboring suburbs. Each house on the tour is carefully selected to showcase how real people decorate with vintage and mid-century in their modern lives. Many of the featured homes boast stunning architecture and history, while others simply demonstrate how mid-century furniture and decor can add timeless elegance to any style. Get styling inspiration and discover the history of mid-century design!


Due to homeowners' requests, admission is often limited. To learn about future events, subscribe to our mailing list below!
