Grand Opening of the Decorator Show House

 The Decorator Show House is now open and ready for touring!
 
This beautiful home was built in the mid-1800's in the historic Belle Grove Square neighborhood in downtown Westminster. Come on in and take a peek!
 
 
Local designers, decorators, artists and craftman have spent months transforming this home, while maintaining it's charm and character.
 
 
Today I'm sharing a peek of what's in store when you come to visit .....
 

The garden inspired dining room is sunny and bright.




What a lovely spot for a casual lunch or a formal dinner party!


The kitchen enjoys modern updates while showcasing the history and nostalgia of a by-gone era.


And if you see something you like, you're in luck.
Almost everything in the house is for sale!


This house boasts several beautiful large porches.


The landscapers did an amazing job on the walkways and gardens!

 
 
And you absolutely must touch the walls in the water closet!


Now let's head up the grand staircase to the second floor.


The soft and pretty sunroom feels nestled among the trees and is the perfect spot to take a moment and relax.

 
 
 
The lovely guest room is carefully appointed with a botanical feel and a nod to the past. 
 
 
 
 
The nautical feel of the nursery was inspired by the 1885 poem, "My Bed Is Like A Boat" by Robert Louis Stevenson.






 The third floor of the home served as the private quarters for the servants of the home. This was our space to decorate!
 
 
These rooms had to serve multiple purposes and are filled with an eclectic mix of furniture and personal belongings.
 

 
 
 
 
Not nearly as grand and formal as the lower levels of the home, these rooms still needed to be comfortable and provide a reteat for the occupants at the end of a long hard day.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I think we met the definition of what our rooms were meant to represent, while still maintaining the unique look and vintage style that you'll find at every Elizabeth & Co. Tag Sale.
 
 
It's been a pleasure to work on this project.
We hope you'll come by for a visit!
 
 
You can get complete details at the official Show House website and at the end of the month, I'll have more photos and a complete wrap-up of the event to share!

Thanks for the inspiration! Of all the things I could pin I chose the Cathedral Window quilt you used as a bed spread on one of your twin beds. Making one of these is on my bucket list.
Everything is wonderful!
