I am so excited I just got a call that I have been chosen to do a space in a Designer Showhouse in Holland this fall. The Boys and Girls club of Holland is doing their second fundraiser designer showhouse.
Dan & I went to look at the house last week to see if we were interested in doing a space. We fell in love with the house! It was built in the 1920 in the French Normandy style, and was moved from Lake Macatawa to it's present location (not far from there) in the 1980's. I has some original historical details, like built ins, floors, moulding, hardware, window, doors & tile. I submitted design proposals for 3 spaces giving my first , second and third choices. I am pleased to tell you that I was awarded the upstairs original master bedroom and bath! The bath has all original tile, and fixtures - so pretty! I thought that you might like to see part of what I submitted to them as concept for doing the bedroom. I did a water color rendered floorplan and elevation showing the bed etc. The other two photos are inspiration for what the furniture and bedding might look like. We will use mostly all antiques, vintage bedding, quilts, fabrics, furniture and accessories. It will be open in November and December so I will add some vintage Christmas to it all too. I will keep you informed of other developments as they happen. This should be soooo FUN! Oh and don't you just love this teal dresser with yellow striping! I hope to have a pair of them in the room. Lots of the items in the room will be for sale too. How fun is that!

Thanks, I did water color concepts for all 3 rooms and this was the one that I was awarded. That was where we went Wed after we had been at your house :> I should put up some photos of the bathroom too, it's great!
