Decorators Showcase 2016 at Highlands Museum
The Highlands Museum & Discovery Center is excited to present the highly anticipated Decorators’ Showcase 2016. In the past, Decorators’ Showcase was a hallmark of the Highlands Museum's events calendar, and staff and volunteers are thrilled to bring this event back after a long hiatus. Decorators' Showcase will take place over three weeks from September 22 to October 8. A special reservation only preview party will be held on Thursday September 22 from 6pm to 8pm. The home will then be open to the public beginning Friday, September 23. Public tours will take place on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 11am to 6pm, and Sundays from 1pm to 5pm.
The home being featured is owned by John and Leigh Villers and is located on Southern Hills Drive in Ashland. This beautiful example of Georgian style architecture was built in the early 1980s by Marshall Steen and Donna Suttles and was patterned after the historic Manor House at the Powhatan Plantation in Colonial Williamsburg, VA. Its exterior is an exact match to the manor that inspired it, and no detail was spared. Period building materials and techniques were used to ensure the home’s façade has the same character and integrity as the original manor. The interior, however, was designed to meet the needs and conveniences of today’s families. The following talented designers will be decorating the home: Tim Quade-Interior Motives, Mary Moffat Jones Interiors, Rebecca Dripps, Mike Bowling, Crawford Shockey, Deborah Pohlman Interiors, Becky Sexton, Michael Quade-MQuade Designs, and Melanie Lindsey. Once fully decorated, the house will be open for the public to tour. This diverse group from across the Tri-State are excited to showcase their creativity and versatility in all three floors of this magnificent living space.
Reservations for the September 22 preview party are $100 and available by contacting the Highlands Museum. Tickets for public tours are $25 and are now on sale at the museum. Proceeds from this event benefit educational programs and exhibits at the Highlands Museum & Discovery Center, a 501c3 non-profit regional history and children’s museum.
