Junior League of High Point’s Designer Showhouse

I hope you enjoyed the first post and if you didn’t get over to High Point last week there is still time to see the Designer Showhouse and I thought I’d give you another glimpse before the house closes.  You won’t want to miss all the great design inspiration.

As we walked upstairs we headed towards the fabulous bedrooms…

The first one we walked into was a pop of preppy pink daughter’s room designed by Cathy Austin of Catherine M. Austin Interior Design in Charlotte.

Its not just the preppy pink the Chinoiseries touches make this room pop

Between the curved headboard, the scalloped draperies, and pillows/bedspread done in the the chopstick style.  There are numerous soft Chinoiseries touches that don’t bowl you over but warmly invite you into the daughter’s room.  It was beautifully styled and designed.  We wanted to jump into the bed. Couldn’t you seen any tween/teen/twenty something loving this room???  (OK maybe a 35-year-old too :))

As we went through the Daughter’s room we ended into the Lady’s Dressing Room designed by Greensboro based Interior Designer Kara Cox.

Not going to lie … it was all about the quartz wallpaper in this room. the picture doesn’t do the wallpaper justice.

Kara Cox does a girls retreat in the Lady’s dressing room.  The wallpaper is described as shining like a “jewelry box” and might I add everything inside is like fantastic pieces of jewelry.  Each piece Kara picked for this small room was rich in design, from the marble lamp, to the rich fabric, art, silver accents… It was all opulent.

Libby Langdon’s Master Bedroom had a true Master and it was the bed. Have you ever seen a bed with its own chandelier? You have now.

In fairness the house was busy and the master bedroom was FULL of people… I couldn’t get great photos in here but the bed was very interesting to me because of the canopy.  It definitely has clean lines and wasn’t too prissy instead it is lovely and comfortable.  I loved the black/white combination.  Everyone there wanted to talk to Libby Langdon so I wasn’t able to speak with her but was very impressed with the room and her ability to have a stately master which is needed for this home, but it was also warm and felt like a couple could end their days here.

a common problem had in many old homes is what to do with drab wardrobes… by adding interesting hardware and beveled mirrors the wall looks sleek and updated quickly.

If you haven’t been to the Showhouse yet… what are you waiting for.  There is still time.
