Lynchburg Design House, 2016

Again this year the YWCA is going to showcase local designers, contractors, vendors and small businesses in the YWCA Lynchburg Design House.  The designers and contractors will be redesigning and redecorating rooms, using their skills and the latest design techniques, to transform an ordinary house into an extraordinary one.  Each designer or contractor will utilize paint, fabric, furniture and accessories for a total makeover.  You, as a guest visitor, will be able to see the work and vision of these talented people.  You will see color choices and color schemes, furniture choices and placement along with rugs, artwork and accessories to make the room shine.  Almost everything in the house is for sale!

In addition to touring the magnificent house this year’s special events include a fashion show, a mother-daughter tea and a bridal show.  A preview party provides an opportunity to meet all of the participating designers who will be showing off their room and their work.  In addition to the special events there will be an on-site boutique and Christmas shop, sponsored by the Farm Basket.

All of the proceeds from this event, put on solely by volunteers, directly supports the YWCA mission and programs, with special attention to the Domestic Violence Prevention Center.

This year’s house is located at 1418 Harrison Street, in Diamond Hill.  Known as the Kean-Jackson House it was built in 1855.  The style is Gothic Revival.  R. G. H. Kean was the head of the Bureau of War for the Confederacy and was married to Thomas Jefferson’s great grand-daughter.

The Design House will be open Saturday, November 12 through Sunday, December 4, at various times Thursdays through Sundays.  The special events will be held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  The house is also available for community groups for events of their own.
