Mount Ida, restyled & refreshed: Behind the scenes at Howard County's Decorator Show House [Pictures]

Age brings a certain stateliness, a certain grandeur, to a home. It also brings dust and dents, outdated fixtures and leaky pipes. Mount Ida, the early 19th-century mansion majestically perched above Historic Ellicott City, has history and character. And as this year's Decorator Show House, it received some TLC from a crew of local interior designers. Howard magazine got to peek at the decorators' progress throughout the five-month project. Here's how Ida got her groove back.
