Gibson Design Group was once again choosen as one of the lucky designers to participate in designing a room in the 2012 Charlottesville Design House. The Charlottesville Design house is an annual fundraiser benefiting the Shelter for Help in Emergency (SHE) which provides advice and a safe haven for victims of domestic violence. 



The 2012 design house is a transitional style house. Some unique architectural features of the house include large windows, 2-story quartz fireplace, and a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom cottage! The Ivy Farm house belongs to Sanjiv and Cindy Kaul who generously donated their home to be decorated for the fundraiser.

Each designer takes on a room of the house and adds their own personal touch to the space. Andrea Gibson of Gibson Design Group had the opportunity to design the screened porch! Let’s take a look at the outdoor design…

Geometric print pillows and a cool sea shell accessory characterize the interesting sunroom, how fun?!

What an elegant outdoor space?! The sunroom certainly has a lot to work with with the gorgeous windows practically surrounding the space. Some flowery, printed drapes accent the large windows and frame the nature views!
