Junior League of High Point 2015 Show House

Dear Diva Readers,

H igh Point Furniture Market is always such fun! It feels like going to summer camp for adults because there are fabulous parties each day and you get to reconnect with industry colleagues who seem to always become dear friends! To kick off this market, a group of us attended the opening night party at the Junior League of High Point Show House.

The house itself is a Tudor Revival home which was built in 1912. Its graciously sized—but not overly grand— rooms were transformed by several local and national designers. After touring this lovely house, I can definitely imagine living here! It was wonderful seeing that many of the designers are actually friends and have been on Antiques Diva Tours! The theme of this year’s showhouse is “From High Point to the World.” How appropriate is that?! Without further ado, let’s recap some of my favorite rooms!

The dining room by Madcap Cottage was fabulous! Jason Oliver Nixon & John Loecke have such an eye for using color and interesting objects. Their spaces always seem to have the perfect mix of items. And of course I swooned over the Fromental wallpaper they used!

The most fun room in my opinion was our friend Holly Phillips’ Carriage House Upstairs Living Area. Holly just has a way of mixing object from different eras & styles and making it work. She paired colors that I would never have thought to use in the same room and the result was absolutely perfection.

The kitchen and back hall entrance was done by our lovely friend Lisa Mende and it is luxurious, stylish, and comfortable all at once. The combination of deep blue, lime green, and black is so cool. And the patterns she uses are amazing!

Cathy Austin’s bedroom is bright, fresh, and oh so Diva approved! With its global influences and pink tones, Cathy describes it as the heiress, globe-trotting daughter who has returned home.

Kara Cox has designed the most glamorous jewel box of a dressing room. There’s even champagne chilling on the vanity. If that’s not Diva style, I don’t know what is!

Leslie Moore created a bedroom that doubles as an art studio. And she’s featured southern female artists in this inspiring space! I love that!

The bubbly Libby Langdon did a very chic bedroom complete with canopy bed and sitting area. We ended up spending the most time in this room as Libby’s personality always attracts tons of people!

Our friend Eric Ross did the library terrace and the pool area. While outdoor spaces can be a challenge, Eric pulled it off with flying colors! Stylish and comfortable are two words that come to mind when spending time in his spaces.

All in all the shophouse certainly is a place I want to spend time in! With so many talented designers in one place, you cannot leave this home without being inspired! Huge thank you to Traditional Home for hosting this fabulous party! It was a great way to kick off spring market!

Cheers,
