Lake Boone Trail: Prepping & Staging for Showcase of Kitchens Tour


When staging a kitchen there are endless possibilities, for us it is about — simplicity and elegance.

This Lake Boone Trail home is on this years Showcase of Kitchens Tour  presented by the Raleigh Junior League. I love these chairs below especially with the nail-head trim. Divine! Every time I look at these photographs of this kitchen, I want to whip up a six course meal for my friends and family. This kitchen inspires me!

The dining room is perfect for a party. Conversation moves from appetizers in the kitchen to dinner in this timeless dining room and dessert in the living room.

 Dramatically proportioned Wainscot wraps the entire room. Lime green fabric drapes  the back of the bookcase creating a soft look.

Gold coffers in the ceiling gives the room a stately feel.
