This Spring, along with this years High Point Market Week, the Junior League of High Point coordinated a designer showhouse - its first in 35 years - featuring the donated time and talent of 22 interior designers, both local and from across the country. The house chosen by the Junior League was the historic Randall B. Terry Estate - also known as the Terry House - a 5,400 square-foot-home built in 1912 by the then prominent local businessman, Randall B. Terry. Terry House is one of the earliest homes built in the historic Roland Park area, which is now a part of Emerywood, both located in the heart of High Point, as well as being located just around the corner from the also historic Bienenstock Furniture Library (you can read about the library here). 

The Terry House served as a wonderful backdrop and example of the English Tudor Revival-style homes that became popular here in the North Carolina region, and was the perfect canvas to artfully display the talents of this savvy group of designers. Thankfully, I had attended the Press Preview Friday morning, before the showhouse became open for the public to tour, and I was able to really take in the creative details and vignettes in this beautifully restored home, and here are a few of my favorite spaces...

Traci Zeller's design aesthetic: "Crisp, classic, and chic - yet always highly functional."

Libby's design aesthetic: "Easy, elegant, everyday."

Parker Kennedy design aesthetic: "Preppy on the Edge, combined with Southern Regency"

Madcap Cottage gents design aesthetic: "traditional with a twist!"

While the showhouse was open, proceeds from the ticket sales went to fund the reinstatement of the Junior League of High Point’s Mini-Grant program, giving the continued support of health and wellness to the community. The JLHP’s mission also continues to promote volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community. This past week, the designers were back to 'tear-down' their beautifully designed spaces, however, some of their design details may be found among some of the local market sample sales, online sample sales, or the designer's home-town warehouse clearance sales...

You can read more about the Terry House, plus see additional beautiful renderings, the vision the designers had for their rooms before renovating them, along with a few before photos in my post I wrote called Beautiful Renderings From The Junior League of High Point Designer Showhouse, on the Hadley Court design blog.

The showhouse was so enormous – with its main house, outdoor living spaces, and carriage house (24 spaces in all!), it felt as if I was touring three homes in one. I was so inspired by many of the designs - too many to share all here - so my blog has a few inspiration design highlights, but you can also see more of this beautiful showhouse by visiting the designers sites found at -- plus, also be sure to visit Circa Lighting for additional designer details of their spaces, and where you can also Shop The Look.

One other post I did write was also for Hadley Court, featuring the same design style Leslie honed in on while being a Style Spotter this Spring at market she called The New Feminine. You can view the post at The New Feminine: 6 Inspiring Rooms from the Junior League of High Point Showhouse

 After the press preview in the morning, I returned later that evening to experience the designer showhouse in a different light, thanks to an invite to the Gala opening for my husband I from Leslie Hendrix Wood.

Loved getting to meet another member of Team Hadley Court - Kim Shaver, who also lives here in North Carolina! 

Since I took all my pics in the morning, Jeff and I had a chance to really enjoy the party - together!

 Loved getting to see online friends in person once again, like my friend Andrew Joseph from NYC!

Congrats to all the fabulous designers who contributed their time and talent to a successful designer showhouse for the Junior League of High Point! (photo via instagram)

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you too are inspired by their designs!
