Come paint with me! September Design House color selection

This month, Amy is taking some great photos of the entire design process so she can bring you along as we pick out colors, unpack the crates, design the rooms, and add the final accessories a.k.a. the "room jewelry".  First up this week is a peek at our color selection for the September Design House.

Since we like a challenge, the ENTIRE Design House was emptied to make room for a new container of furniture.  This was a great time to repaint and we're featuring three new colors!  Henry is our trusted right hand man when it comes to painting and he has been busy the last two weeks repainting the interior spaces.  "But you just remade an entire house last month," you say.  Of course!  Suzanne and Amy do this every month and truly design each room and space to reflect the new furniture shipments that are coming in, highlight carefully selected artwork, and to show off fresh vignettes with the color trends they're seeing in their travels and using for interior design jobs.

Here is Henry, our painting and handyman extraordinaire, painting one of the many rooms in the Design House.  Without Henry, we simply could not do what we do each month.

Here is a page ripped from our Design Notebook focusing on this month's color selection.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!

I've heard that yellow paired with charcoal grey is a really hot combination right now. I'm told there is a surprise upstairs to show off this pairing, but I've been sworn to secrecy.  We have a great post with a sneak peek of Suzanne and Amy's furniture selection for the September Design House coming up later this week.  They are totally pumped because they've waited six months for this furniture grouping and it's well worth the wait!


The September Design House will be open Friday, September 2nd through Sunday, September 4th, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.  The Design House is an interior design showcase open on select dates, usually the first weekend of each month.  At the Design House, we bring together the greatest design talents from The Old Lucketts Store who completely remake an entire farmhouse for each event, from lighting to furniture, to paint, and accessories.  For a more detailed description of the Design House, please visit this post.

  7. Miss Mustard Seed sent me and I'm in awe of your Design House project! We have an occasional sale and just adding to and rearranging our little barn is huge to us. Such an inspiration - it will be so fun to follow you and hope to make the journey from MN to VA some day!
