What a week it’s been, Gentle Readers! Or rather, what a few weeks it’s been. First there was the stretch of publicity leading up to the show house. That included a House Beautiful Instagram Live tour;
and an interview with Erika Gonzalez on NBC4, which was exciting.
Do you know how long it’s been since I had to look good TWO DAYS IN A ROW, Gentle Readers? Months! I was out of practice, let me tell you.
Today we wrapped up the second weekend of the show house, and we have two more weeks to go. Foot traffic has been steady and visitors enthusiastic…I can’t tell you how rewarding that’s been.
I believe I mentioned that everything in the ASPIRE House (not just our room — everywhere!) is for sale. Priced to move! We’ve already sold a few items, but please keep an eye on our Instagram story for others. Everything will be available for pickup after September 13.
The biggest steal of all is the custom fabric items, most of which is in Cowtan & Tout’s GORGEOUS Rutland pattern.
There is one pair of window drapes plus the bed drapery, which our amazing fabricator, Sew Hallie, could transform into another set of drapes or Roman Shades for your room.
The Eaton Check fabric — also from Cowtan & Tout — is part of the package. We could make more pillows, Roman Shades…the sky’s the limit!
Please email us for pricing. I assure you, it’s a gigantic bargain.
We also have a Queen headboard in a super tough green Kravet fabric ($700), a Queen bedskirt (16″ drop) in the Rutland fabric ($350), and two matching Euro pillows backed in a lovely light blue cotton percale ($350 for the pair). The other pillows are a steal, too: $250 for the orange pair and $125 for the bolster.
Seriously, if you’ve been thinking about redecorating a bedroom in time for the winter holidays, you could get this room installed by Halloween for a fraction of the cost of custom window treatments alone.
Let us know. In the meantime, enjoy a little escapism by visiting the ASPIRE House this week! It’s tons of fun.
