We have already showed you the first two parts of our room at this year’s Designer ShowHouse for t the Arts, held this year at Seaside, first part here, and second part here. Now it is time for the final nook in the corner of the room. This is a little office area in the library that is nestled between two staircases. Anna Kay and Doug found the great little metal desk while shopping in Atlanta. Then we added a vintage desk chair at the table that we had painted and reupholsterd in Schumacher’s Ming Dragon. We love to reupholster vintage chairs but this has to be one of the most fun chairs so far! Since the room was styled for Truman Capote and Harper Lee, we had to add the vintage black typewriter.
We used a collection of antique frames and mirrors on both staircases. The fun metal clips allow the photos to float and they can be changed easily. (photos by Sheila Goode)
The showhouse was fun this year! We can’t wait until we start again next summer!
