Recent Project: Showcase House
Posted on 23 April 2013
We recently had the fabulous opportunity to work with Lisa Mende and Traci Zeller on a room for the Adamsleigh Showcase House in North Carolina. For the men’s dressing room in this historic house, we created a toile wallpaper using the home’s original architectural drawings from 1929. We went through several revisions with Lisa and Traci, and collaboratively we came up with this modern take on a toile: close overlapping facades. By keeping the background white and using a charcoal/graphite linecolor, we achieved a light, graphic and modern feel with historic drawings.
Because the original owner of the home was also a great textile manufacturer, producing hundreds of black socks daily, we developed a companion design featuring — what else?— black socks!
We love the way these designs are fun and modern, but tie in with the home’s history. We had a great time working with Lisa and Traci, who made the project super fun. If you are in the Greensboro area, be sure to stop by the home…. it is sure to be filled with all kinds of design treasure!
