FRIDAYfinds! - Show House Chandelier REVEALED

Last night I attended the 
PREVIEW PARTY 
and it was FABULOUS!

It's the kick-off for the opening, which is this Saturday.
It's hard to believe that it's finally here, 
after so many months of "sweat equity" we've invested.
But now that our room is totally put together, down to the tiniest detail,
I can say it's been a 
"Labor of love"
And it's probably one of my favorite rooms I've ever put together for a show house.
"It's the perfect mix of great antiques, lively fabrics, 
and colors that SING!"


There was a record crowd at the Preview Party,
eager to get the first glimpse
of this incredible renovation of a classic Gothic Revival home.
Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, 
the "Anchorage" has finally been restored to its original splendor,
both inside and out!

It was really my first chance to tour the entire house 
(I've been so consumed with finishing my own space I haven't had the time) 
And it was so fun!  It's great to be part of something this grand.
My congratulations to all the designers involved.

Early on in the process of designing my room
THE PRIVATE LADIES PARLOUR
I posted three choices for a chandelier
and asked what you thought.
You may have noticed that none of the pics on
subsequent posts about the Show House ever showed the chandelier.
I wanted to keep it a secret to be revealed tonight...
on the eve of the Show House opening.
So, for my loyal followers, YOU are the first to see which one I picked

Design by Joan Waddell of J. Waddell Interiors
You have to look hard but it's in the reflection of the mirror.
I'm crazy about this choice!
It's absolutely perfect for the space but a photo just doesn't do it justice.
You'll have to see it in person to get the whole effect.
I'll post more pics of the room as the Show House progresses
so keep in touch.

"EMBRACE THE JOYS OF GOOD DESIGN!"
