Room by Room- Post # 1

The event we have planned for and worked on for the past year is almost here! And what a spectacular house it is! This week designers have been putting the finishing touches on their rooms.  We'll try in the next few days to give you a quick look at what they have done!


The Foyer pictured below has been designed by Ann Warrick and Molly Mclean.
(They also did the Front and Back Porches which we will show in another post).

This is a picture of the Family Room just a few days ago...

And below is what it looks like today!  The Family Room was done by Maria Adams and Jaime Berg and they have done just a stupendous job!  Their budget for this room was under $4500 for furniture, accessories, artwork and custom window treatments.  Super look for the money!

 It would be impossible to even guess how many hours have been devoted to this very worthy project that benefits The Arc of Greensboro, but it would be safe to say that it numbers in the hundreds.  Designers have to work within a very strict & meager budget for their room; they are given a a general color scheme from which they can develop their plans.

After the rooms are assigned the hunt begins for the perfect vintage pieces of furniture and accessories.  Goodwill, thrift stores, consignment shops, antique stores and salvage yards are but a few of the places where they go to find the best deals at the best prices.  Because we live so close to the Furniture capital of the world...High Point, NC...we often are able to get new pieces of  discontinued furniture... or rugs... or lamps... donated or greatly discounted.

Stay tuned in the days to come as we bring you new pictures of other designer's rooms, and if you live in North Carolina or neighboring states, come visit the Chic Chateau Show House located at 2508 Duck Club Road in Greensboro, NC. We will be open 9/19-21 & 26-28, and EVERYTHING in the house is for sale!!! The house is open on Fridays and Saturdays from 10-5PM and on Sundays from Noon-5PM.
