Show House Update - SIGH OF RELIEF!

We've been through a major transformation of our room this week!

 Thanks to the cleaning crew who was there all weekend,
we have been able to start moving things in without tracking dust everywhere.



One of the key pieces in the room is this beautiful antique secretary
which I've repurposed as a bar. I'll show you how I set it up in a future post.



You can see our fabulous red chairs here, all wrapped up in their blankets!



I'm sooo thankful for my skilled contractors!  
I couldn't do any of this without them.  We truly are a team.

My windows were tricky, and I wanted to correct a problem
of one window being shorter than the other.  I discussed my solution with 
my workroom and they helped me figure out how to make it work!
Even so, I always hold my breath during installation...


It was amazing to finally see the whole window treatment design come together!



  Once the big pieces were "safely" in the room,
we were able to work on the details like hanging the artwork
and...


...this fabulous antique mirror above the fireplace.

I'm really excited how all the elements have come together in my space.
It's a room made for comfort - long conversations with friends,
writing a letter, or curling up with a book.
The eclectic mix is both familiar yet unexpected. 
And that's JUST the way I like it!


If you're in town, please come see me in the room during 
Designer Nights
every Tuesday and Thursday from 5-7pm.
for the run of the show.

40TH ANNIVERSARY
SEPT 7 - 22

Hope to see you there!
