Last Friday I attended the March of Dimes Designer Show House in Eastover. I thought it was such a beautifully designed event...a must see.
The house itself has a gorgeous floor plan and is set on one of the most beautiful tree-lined streets. Many local designers from the Charlotte area designed the interiors. One of my favorite rooms was the master bedroom, designed by Luxe, located on East Blvd. The chandelier was exquisite in addition to all the furniture selections. Another favorite was the exterior patio, designed by B.D. Jeffries, located in the Morrison shopping center adjacent to the South Park Mall. It was interesting to see the mix of rustic furnishings and accessories meld so easily with the facade of a traditional home. I loved all the beautiful details they put into the design from the place settings to the planted succulents on the tables. They used a lot of different textures that created warmth and dimension. One other noteworthy room in my opinion is a study on the upper level designed by Lucy and Company, also located on East Blvd. The color scheme is a mix of black and white with a rich emerald green. It was very reminiscent of one of my favorite designers, Kelly Wearstler's design at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica, CA. The lighting fixture centered in the room had a beautiful green bead detail and the furniture/architectural selections were smart and savvy. I urge anyone who has a chance to attend, to buy a ticket for $15.00 at the door, and spend an hour or so soaking in the local design. It goes to a good cause, and you'll take a least a few great ideas. Everything in the house is available to purchase as well. The house is open October 14-16 at 516 Museum Drive, Charlotte, NC 28207.
