Designer Show house!

We are so excited to be a part of this year's Wilmington Arts Council's Designer Showhouse. They released the selections on Friday -- an anonymous jury selected designers based on their design pitch. We went for the foyer and the library, hoping for one or the other. We are so excited to announce that we are decorating the FOYER! It's a little nerve racking because it will be everyone's first impression when they enter the home. Check out our plan below... it is complete with our own CUSTOM wallpaper design. We designed the paper from a vintage pagoda pattern. Our cutting edge friends at Port City Signs and Graphics will be printing it for us. Isn't it beautiful?

We selected the wallpaper colors based on the current trim color. It looks to be Benjamin Moore "Stratton blue". We are planning on leaving the trim, which we love just the way it is. 

 Our plan includes an antique Oriental rug from the Gallery of Oriental Rugs. It has beautiful vibrant colors and a medallion to ground a glass and brass table -- which we will fill with flowers and blue/white Oriental jars and vases. 

We will pull in fun fabrics and accent some killer wing backs covered in linen. They are traditional with a twist. Literally. Don't you just love the lines? There is a pair of them and we think they will look great flanking the entry. 
 Everyone needs an Oscar de la Renta for Century chair in their space. Isn't it perfection?
 This framed antique Chinese screen is made of silk. The detail is stunning and we hope to hang this in the space. We can't wait for you to see the finished product! 
Be sure to stay tuned and visit the Wilmington Arts Council Designer Showhouse May 2-18, 2014. We hope to see you there! 
bye bye birdie....

I have missed you girls! we checked back and forth with one another a few times when I first started blogging and it has been a crazy busy adventure and I have not been able to keep up with my favorites I've found along the way! Anywho, You supported me (and now my sister has teamed up) when I was new and I continue to love your great creative work and so I'm just saying hello and I'm gonna try to make an effort to comment more and just not be a voyeur! Love your work! You two are a great inspiration! I aspire to be able to get my clients in this new found business to agree to think out of the box and you two do that so well!!
