MoD Showhouse 2011

This past weekend a friend and I went to check out the March of Dimes Showhouse in Foxcroft – near the Mint Museum.  There are many great designers represented at the house.  The house itself is HUGE – I believe over 10,000 square feet – 4 to 5 living spaces, 5-6 bedrooms, plus a nanny suite, pool, elevator = super SNAZZY!

Let me share some of my favorite spaces:

The Dining Room:

Design by:  Mrs. Howard

A beautiful elegant Dining Room with creams, whites and greys.  I really like the traditional window treatments with a modern touch of box pleat trim on the leading edges of each panel.  You can check out more before and after’s on their blog.

I loved this room! The wall treatment was to die for!  It was one of those colors that one minute you think it’s blue, then brown, then gray and a gorgeous sheen on top.  I loved the combinations of furnishings.  A funky mixture but still so chic!  LURVE!

Back Porch:

They did a wonderful job of combining natural textures.  Such a welcoming space that I would love to curl up in front of the fire on a cool crisp fall evening!  Oh and did you check out the sunburst mirror made out of fence pickets?  Too cute!

Sitting Room


Design by:  Lucy & Co

I have loved Lucy & Co back in the days when she was over on Commonwealth in Plaza Midwood.  They do amazing work!  If you haven’t ever visited the shop or checked out their blog or website – it’s a must!  And they didn’t disappoint at the showhouse either.   

Bedroom Suite 4



Design by:  Isabella

This room was light and airy and so inviting!  A beautiful combination of old and new.  Fellow Charlotte blogger Byrn Alexandra works at Isabella and has been telling us a little bit about their design process here.


Overall a beautifully designed home.  Oh and it’s for sale and I’m sure all the designers would be more than happy to sell it furnished!  There’s still a chance to check out all the lovelies LIVE and in PERSON next weekend!  And it’s for a good cause – so go on over and let me know what your favorite spaces are!
