Lucketts 2014 Spring Design House

One of my favorite things to do while at Lucketts is to visit the Design House . .

This year it was a bit more difficult to snap pics and it was pretty crowded . . .

~ ~ being that it was the first day of the Lucketts Spring Market.

So hope you enjoy this mini tour of the Design House:

They set up for an “outdoor dining experience”

  5. Fantastic tour. I saw so many things I would like!

  6. Shirley,

    I am the girl from Missouri that talked to you and Kim at the gate before Lucketts opened on Saturday. I finally got set up to receive your blog. Looks like I will enjoy reading this. I enjoyed my first time at Lucketts and the Design House.

  7. Shirley, you had me from the front porch, with the three-tiered stand, to the old doors and topiaries galore! The old chippy urns and baskets are wonderful, as well! There was so much eye candy in this post that I had to go back and look again! What a fun way to spend a day!

  8. So much great stuff, Shirley! I see several things I would have wanted. I would probably have been disappointed with those “sold” tags on things.

  33. I wish I lived close enough to visit. I’ve heard of it before, but I live very far away. Thanks for posting. It’s the next best thing!

  34. Thank you so much for taking us along. Love the old house and all of its charm.

  35. I’m late getting to this one, Shirley, but it was worth the wait! Wow…so pretty! I remember when you went last year and posted all the pictures. You got quite a few this year, too. Like you, I LOVE that gigantic round mirror! I loved the dragonfly/butterfly lampshades on the table in front of it, too. So many pretty architectural pieces…I would be tickled pink to have all of those in our house!

    As for the front porch, I can’t decide which I like better. Last year’s vignette was nice for just sitting, cooling your heels, chatting it up. This year’s is more for enjoying dessert or lunch, although I don’t know that I would want to do that on the FRONT porch! Maybe the side porch, but not the front. And the cupboard blocks the view. But it’s still cool. I’d be completely down with it if it was all moved around to the side porch!

    This mini tour has left me with some great inspiration to change a few things around in our home as I’m continuing my cleaning and organizing. It’s an endless (and seemingly thankless sometimes!) job.

    Thanks for sharing these pics so we can live vicariously through your travels!
