~ ~ We (Kim and I) are going to Lucketts….can’t wait!!!

Looking forward to the many wonderful things they offer . . .

~ ~ and this year, my friend Kristen will be there selling her beautiful things.

I have never done this before, but I am going to re-post the beautiful rooms . .

~ ~ of the 2013 Lucketts Design House . . . I cannot wait to see the Design House this year!

For those who have not seen last year’s Design House . . you are in for a treat!!

And for those of you who know me well…

~ ~ you can probably guess that one of the highlights of the Market is…

~ ~ ~ ~ THE DESIGN HOUSE!!! . . . It is gorgeous!

A great group of talented people have decorated the Design House impeccably.

So armed with my “point and shoot camera” . . I proceeded to tour this fabulous 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 porch..you 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.

DSC00098

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.

DSC00101

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!!

DSC00115

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”…

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

There were four bedrooms in this house…

DSC00111

Even though I love the styling of this bed, in my mind . . .

~ ~ I was straightening the bedding and pillows!

DSC00112

DSC00109

Another cute area at the end of the hallway.

DSC00106

This chest was situated in the foyer toward the kitchen…

~ ~ I love that clock as it has “Charleston” on the face!

DSC00105

This room was located next to the kitchen…

DSC00102

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

DSC00103

DSC00135

This cow head was huge!…

~ ~ it was located in the kitchen in which was used as a check out area.

DSC00136

As we exited the Design House. .

~ ~ you go through an enclosed back porch area that was such a delight to see.

DSC00137

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!

DSC00138

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

The old restaurant sign was a real beauty!…

DSC00139

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!!..

And hope to attend next year!

AND I AM !!!! 🙂

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

Have a wonderful day!!!

Bar Stool Fabric Makeover and Two Hometalk Bloggers Meetups!

A few weeks ago…I was trying to decide which fabric to use to recover my bar stools…

…..many of you responded.

You can see the fabric choices in the original post here.

The results of your input pretty much leaned toward the fabric that I loved too…and here it is:

The fabric is a faux crewel design by Braemore..

The colors are pefect for great room area..the color of the apples are very close to my sunroom furniture…

…..which goes well with the fabric.

The enamel pitcher is from Ikea.

Apples from Harris Teeter…:)
