Designer Showhouse 2017 | Pre Install
Have you heard about the Designer Showhouse at 36 Society Street yet? This is Charleston Symphony Orchestra League’s 2017 showhouse and each section of the stunning home is being done by different designers, landscapers, brokers, etc. The home is a stunning Greek Revival from around the 1840’s. Very Charleston.
Well our very own Michael Mitchell and Tyler Hill are designing the charming entry, the living room right beside the doorway, and the back hall leading to the kitchen. The paint colors are shades of gray, one sort of a charcoal and the other a light slate/blue color. Paired with the crisp, white, ornate molding, the walls and their lines feel so sophisticated and clean.
The living room has two floor length windows overlooking the expansive porch and substantial (for Charleston standards) yard. On the East wall is a fireplace with an extremely intricate, one-of-a-kind mantel. And the floors are practically in pristine condition with just enough blemishes to show the true historic charm.
So the team already installed a grand chandelier and curtains in the living room and the shades are so striking together. They have also installed two chandeliers in the entry and the back hall that go perfectly with the style of the home. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the install will bring!
Check back for the post-installation photos of their beautiful work or go see it for yourself when the house is open to the public — March 16th through April 15th.
See their website for details (such as open hours and how to get tickets).
Come see it!
Enjoy my photos of the spaces, pre-install.
