Tour Of The Chic Chateau Showhouse


The Chic Chateau showhouse was held a couple of weeks ago in my hometown.  It is a fully decorated house with each room being fully decorated by different interior designers – and a beautiful home it was.

The home was built by R and K Custom Homes, located in Greensboro, NC.

The decorating theme of the home was mid-century modern with a fairly vibrant color palette.  To be honest, that isn’t a style that I’m normally fond of, but all of the designers in this house sure did change my mind.  They did a fabulous job of repurposing and mixing the old with the new and gave this home a completely up-to-date look.

The lead design team for the show house determined how each of the rooms would be used.  I was a bit surprised by the functionality of some of the rooms on the main level.  Not bad – just a bit different.

As you enter the foyer, you can see the dining room beyond.

The dining room was fabulous with its curved window and bench.  I would have expected this room to be a living room, but dining rooms are all about drama, and boy, the window in this room provided drama on top of drama.

The room that I thought would have been the dining room, which was to the right of the foyer and directly off of the kitchen, was used an office.

And then the room that I thought would have been the office (because it was located off to itself, on the very front of the house), was designed as a very pretty girl’s bedroom.

The master bedroom was also located on the main floor and was one of my favorite rooms.

The gorgeous kitchen was outfitted with beautiful black cabinetry.  A hidden walk-in pantry was located behind the large cabinet doors you can see to the left of the opening for the refrigerator.

The breakfast nook was in an alcove in the kitchen.

A family room with a soaring ceiling was opposite the kitchen area.

There were two bedrooms and a bonus room upstairs.

The bonus room was definitely styled as a place for a whole family to relax and play.

I love the pattern and color is this bedroom.

The final bedroom had a wonderful canopy feature above a daybed and a cool little sitting area.

One of the purposes of the Chic Chateau is to show and inspire everyone how vintage and thrifted pieces can be updated and made to fit into today’s homes.  I’ll be back in a few days to give you a closer look at many of the wonderful design details.  Hopefully, you’ll find some ideas to use in your own home!

    1. Same here, Pat. Even if I’m not fond of the style of the house, I always come away with at least one idea. Thank you for stopping by!

    What a beautiful home!!!

    1. I was, Shirley. Wish you could have made the trip up here to see it with us!

  2. Very nice, but it doesn’t look like it’s lived in.

  3. Charlene Brummitt says:

    I just saw this post and they should have ask you to do the decorating. Maybe you had to be there but I wasn’t impressed.

  4. Uh, no.
    Yours is better. For sure.

  5. Love the exterior- absolutely stunning! I just feel the inside doesn’t do it justice. I’ll keep my mind open to your next stories. 😉

  6. I’d love to know where the dining room curtains came from. They’re stunning!

    1. I’m sorry, but these were custom made for the designer so I don’t have a resource for them.
