Junior League Show House

January 26, 2023
It was a show house first for the JBI studio last year and what a doozy it was! Between travel (both car and plane) from Chicago to Detroit multiple times during the event and hustling to get things installed in time, we made incredible progress and had a blast. The kicker was me coming down with COVID a couple of weeks before opening night but luckily the design stars aligned and I was fully recovered just in the nick of time.

Before shots of the space – YIKES!

Lake St. Clair view before the transformation.

The adjacent bathroom we also had the pleasure of tackling!

We had to do a partial install midway to get the word out to local media sources and this was our mini vignette. Thanks to local retailers and sources at the Design center in Troy we were able to convey our design message. Do you think we nailed it?

How things started…

VS How it’s going, SEND HELP! We had to cover existing layers of wallpaper and work with those unforgiving distressed floors.

Slowly but surely, we got things installed.

And made a lot of friends along the way. Pictured is Ms. Loretta Crenshaw of the Detroit based Crenshaw and Associates.

Waiting for VIP ticket holders to tour the space on opening night.
