Showhouse in the making!

I can’t believe it’s here again!

Bellarmine University 2015 Show House 

is right around the corner

and we are already installing…

But it didn’t happen in a day…

This was the "BEFORE" of our guest room – 
a quiet palette that screamed to stand out!
Not that there was anything wrong with the space,
it just didn’t have any visual punch.
So, we went to work to design a 
guest retreat that would lure you in
and wrap around you like a soft blanket.
 Enter the world of 


This palette combines lavender with chartruese, burgundy and gray
for a lively mix-up that’s fun and inviting. 
The key to this bold approach was to balance 
the color with pieces that grounded the room –
like the cerused wood canopy bed with its linen insets,
 beautiful antique mahogany chest and leather wing chair.
And every guest room needs a crowning touch,
don’t you think?  
This chandelier did it for me!  With it’s combo of
weathered wood and chrome, it toned down the lavender beadboard
just enough to keep it from being too feminine.
Nothing more exciting than seeing this bed 
on its way upstairs!
Close call getting that canopy through the doorway!
Speaking of a beautiful antique mahogany chest….
Just what the room needed!  I love the patina of this piece.
The room is taking shape and I’m itching to add the final touches…
but that will be another day.
Check out the complete transformation of our guest bedroom
during the show house.
