What: The opening of Carol Barden‘s House of Light.

Where: The House of Light in West University.

Who: Developer/designer Carol Barden; architect Scott Strasser; happy new homeowners Corrinn Davis and Vernon Perry; new neighbor Anu Matorin; gallerist Barbara Davis, with brother Mark; Jeff Samples, Sarah Bray, Kay and Andrew McStay, Laurann Claridge and William Zeitz, Audrey Springer, Luis Manuel de las Cuevas, Todd Novak, Jay Monroe, Sarah and Ryan Fuselier, and Abbie Wallace.

PC Moment: Celebrating her 18th home, Barden and a chic supporting cast sent off the house in style (dirt-proof surgical booties notwithstanding). Casetta Catering provided scrumptious Italian bites as guests and well-wishers were struck by the home’s intelligent use of natural and artificial light — a brilliant design element dazzling even at night, without the benefit of sun.
