Designer Showhouse Favorite Room

Back in May I visited Blairsden, a Mansion in May designer showhouse located in Peapack-Gladstone, NJ.  I took so many pictures on my iphone and then never got around to sharing them with you.  Today, I am going to share one of my favorite rooms in the mansion…

This is the Grey Gardens Great Room Designed by Linda Benson Interiors


Starting with this side of the room, you can see the lovely blue grasscloth on the shelves…

 And of course the pretty shelf styling!

The room had so much natural light.

With so many colors and textures, it was such an inviting space!

For those of us who are fans of blue and white, this room was a dream!

Isn’t this a pretty corner sofa?  Imagine lounging there with a glass of wine.

A beautiful gallery wall too.

And who doesn’t love a topiary or two?

Isn’t this dining space stunning?  From the dark brown table to the bamboo chairs I could imagine sitting at this lovely table all day!  The elegant orchid makes the perfect centerpiece…

And that lantern is perfection!

I hope you enjoyed one of my favorite spaces from the tour.  I promise to organize the rest of my pictures and show you more of this amazing house in the near future!  (Ha – It’s only been 3 months…)

Even though the house is no longer open for tours, please check out the Mansion in May website and of course the designer’s website – Linda Benson Interiors.

Have you been to any designer showhouses lately?

I’d love for you to follow along so you don’t miss a post!
