The Cville Design House

For the last few years, I've been trekking up to the DC Design House to get my fix of show houses. When I saw a sign for the Cville Design House, I was overjoyed. I can't wait to see what local designers have planned for the blank slate in Ednam Forest, near the Boar's Head in.

Look at what the designers started with:

This was the "fitness and jacuzzi" area. It makes me want to run far, far away.

The trees are crying for this sad sun room

Here are a few teaser shots to tide you over until the afters are ready. First, the proposed sketches:

Lucky for us, Alexandra Gibson from Gibson Design Management tweeted two photos from the dining room, where her team is working away.

There's going to be MUCH more to see by this weekend!

The design house opens on Saturday, May 8th (with a special opening gala on Friday). The schedule:

May 8th - 16th, 2010

Saturday and Sunday 10am - 4pm
Monday – Wednesday 10am - 2pm
Thursday & Friday 10am - 2pm , 4pm -7pm

Ticket information is on the Cville Design House website.
The proceeds will benefit Charlottesville's Shelter for Help in Emergency.


  1. I never heard of this before. Can't wait!

  2. How cool! I wish they were open a bit longer so I could make it... instead I'll just "see" it through your posts.

  3. The Cville Design House website will have professional pictures of the spaces up after the house closes so everyone who missed it will be able to take a look...and maybe make plans to come to the house next year!

  4. I need your help. Small space but cool house.

  5. Would you believe it's a 4200 square foot house? It's not small at all!
