Lucketts 2013 Spring Market Design House Tour

On my previous post about the Lucketts Spring Market…

…..I stated that other than the wonderful antiquing, I so enjoyed meeting fellow bloggers…socializing.

But for those of you who know me well…

….. you can probably guess that one of the highlights of the Market was…


It is gorgeous…such a great group of talented people have decorated the Design House impeccably.

So armed with my “point and shoot” camera (did not bring the heavy DSLR with me) and proceeded to “the house”.

When I approached the front porch, you see this:


It says Welcome!

Can you see that gorgeous door against the wall?…

And on the other side of the front see this:


This area just makes you want to sit and have a glass of Sweet Tea!


I love the colors of this living room…


Each room was unique..Great numbered and lettered chests..


The Design House, as you can imagine was a bit crowded, so I took pictures quickly…


The dining room was located just off the foyer…beautiful!

…..and if you noticed, the same carpet that was on the porch is in the dining room.



As for many of the pieces in the house, this pretty chest was sold…


I thought that this bed in the alcove was so creatively done with the branches and bird cages hanging above…




So many great accessories displayed beautifully for sale in the house..



This chest is so wonderful and I know that many of you talented people out there could easily duplicate it!!


There were so many nooks and crannies filled with unique accessories.


One of the beautifully appointed bedrooms…

…..such creative furniture placement in this room.



Great “clock art”…


A view down the hallway of the upper floor…a pretty sitting area at the end of the hall.


A sitting room decorated in a garden theme…





Another stunning bedroom…


The furniture finishes were so fantastic…and I love how the light reflected on the ceiling.





There were four bedrooms in this house…


Even though I love the styling of this bed, in my mind, I was straightening the bedding and pillows!



Another cute area at the end of the hallway…


This chest was situated in the foyer toward the kitchen…I love that clock as it has “Charleston” on the face!


This room was located next to the kitchen…


The room appeared to be designed as a staging area/work room.



This cow head was huge!…it was located in the kitchen in which was used as a check out area…


As we exited the Design House, you go through an enclosed back porch area that was such a delight to see.


This was the other end of the porch…the weathered checkerboard floors were beautiful…

…..and it was hard not taking that dairy price sign home with me!


As you can see the table was so many of the items in the Design House.

…..the old restaurant sign was a real beauty!…


Well, it was time to leave this house….and too bad the clock was wrong, for if it was truly 10 after 10ish….

…..I would have gone out the door and back through the front to tour the house again.

Unfortunately, it was time to leave and begin our long drive home…

I am so glad that I was able to attend the Lucketts Spring Market, even though for just a few short hours…

…..for it was totally worth it!!..

Next year…I will be there for the entire two days!!!

Hope you enjoyed the Design House as much as I did!

Have a wonderful day!!!

    Oh Shirley, Thanks for sharing the Design House with us! I can’t wait to see it in person next year. What beautiful items and so many it’s hard to chose a favorite or even two.

  6. Wow…..every room is stunning! I was yelling in my head that I have been on the puter for over 2 hours and NEED to get some chores done… I am inspired and may never get to the dishes…LOL

    Love this post, thanks so much for sharing it. 🙂

  7. I kept saying to myself, “oh, this is my favorite room” then I would see my NEXT favorite room, so I really can’t choose a favorite. I love all the accessories!!!! I would have had a HARD time not buying ALOT of stuff!!! Especially the garden themed things. Love that “tree” that looks like roots at the bottom. The bedroom with the branches and birdcages was fabulous. Thanks for this wonderful tour. XO, pinky

  9. At first I thought the porch was my favorite room, and then the dining room, and then…….. There are so many great ideas in this show house. Thanks for sharing. I think I need to get to decorating – big time!! Patty

  15. Shirley, can I just say WOW!!! That door on the porch is stunning, I would love that for my new house. The dining room is gorgeous with that rug. When I saw the bedroom, my jaw dropped from that bed and the chandelier. This was FANTASTIC tour to take us on. Loved it!!


  16. Thanks for bringing a little bit of Luckett’s to those of us that live too far away to attend…love the french postmark chest and I agree with you that it’s a piece that is sure to get duplicated in blogland…I also love the dairy sign – I think that’s on my list to recreate as is the restaurant cabinet…Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  17. How gorgeous, Shirley! Thanks for sharing your pictures. I would have enjoyed walking through there. I think it’s great that it looks like everything was for sale, too.

  18. OMG! Lucky you to get to go to that in person. I’ve only ever been able to see it online and didn’t get a full feel for it like your pictures convey. What a great place to shop! I saw quite a few things that sparked my interest. The light fixtures alone were fantastic! I love unique lighting.

    Shirley, Thanks for all the pictures as it is the only way I get to see all the things you get to see. Maybe next year I’ll get to go. I loved everything!

  28. I would have been corralling people and herding them out of MY HOUSE!!! Man, this is cool! Everything in it is cool!!! Those bedrooms!!! That dining room! All those cool chests, clocks and lighting fixtures!!!!!!! I don’t think you could have pulled me out of there with the jaws of life! So many terrific details throughout! Sigh….I wish!

    I’m sorry you had to leave in such a hurry, but glad you at least got to see it up close and in person. I’m sure it was a rush!

  30. Wasn’t that design house amazing?! I’m attempting to restage my house and it falls FLAT in comparison! I’ll be furiously looking through the photos to capture the warmth it had.

    Lovely shoot, Shirley! And I agree, that market is definitely a two day venture.

  31. Oh you got fabulous shots of the Design House! I have a few of those but missed taking a bunch in there. Wow, so much fabulous stuff in there.

  33. Never knew I needed a giant cow head until now – but I do! Lucky you – wish I could have been there – but just as well since I probably would have tried to buy everything in the place – with nowhere to put it once I got home!

  39. Great tour! I’d love to visit in person one day. I actually saw some art in your pics that I have in my living room 🙂

  40. Wow! Luckett’s looks like too much temptation/fun! I finally saw one other person asking where it is located and I also have no clue unless in High Point or nearby. Shirley, please share the info and if it is open to the trade only or not.
