I was looking back at old blog posts and I realized that I never shared photos on the blog of the showhouse I designed in 2014! I am not sure how I managed to miss doing this. The Ware Mansion Designer Showhouse was located in Chester County, PA and we had just moved to the Harrisburg, PA area, so it was not a local project, but it was very enjoyable. At that time, I did not want to reveal photos of the space while the show was running. Click here to see the original post about the space when it was finished, and how pictures were revealed at that time. Click here a another link to a post that was written during the process, when we were moving furniture and accessories in to the space. And another post regarding the painting can be found here and here.
I thought it would be fun to finally share these with you. This is still a space that I love to revisit through photos. The room was filled with such wonderful light that it just made me happy. The design was the Master Suite, which included a bedroom with a sitting area and fireplace, a dressing room and a small full bathroom.
Please Enjoy these photos that were taken by Donovan Witmer.
The Master Bedroom was painted a gorgeous color by Benjamin Moore, Pigeon Gray. I fondly call this Gravender, because depending on who was looking at the room it was either Gray or Lavender. The dresser was a vintage faux bamboo piece that was painted in a high gloss finish. The mirror is vintage, as are some of the accessories in the room. The wallpaper in all three spaces is from York Wallcoverings.
The dressing room was painted in Slip, another Benjamin Moore color that I love. The chandelier is vintage. The island was custom made for the space. I loved the wallpaper pattern that you see in the frames. This was a great way to incorporate that pattern in this space.
The wallpaper is an oversized damask pattern with a metallic finish by York Wallcoverings, from a Ronald Redding collection. This space was being paid for by the client, so costs were a strong consideration on all the selections for the tile, shower, hardware, etc. Everyone was pleased with how this turned out and it came in well within a target budget. Although I will admit, I was never given the target budget–I was just asked to keep costs down, and give my pricing to the client for approval.
