2017 Charleston Symphony Designer Showhouse just opened and I am fortunate enough to have designed the dining room. This colorful, art inspired space was a delight to create with the help of many wonderful design partners.
The magnificent circa 1840 Henry Street House is a beautiful Greek Revival structure just a few steps from historic Charleston harbor. Sporting beautiful decorative plaster ceilings, original moldings and fireplaces, gracious rooms and dramatic double piazzas, the house is a stunning platform for award winning local and national designers. Be sure to shop in the exclusive boutique, lunch in the Café or choose a treasure from the designers’ exquisitely decorated rooms. Now in its 40th year, the Symphony Designer Showhouse is a not-to-be-missed event!
