Show House Sneak Peek

Well, the cat, err, the horse, is out of the bag on Vintage Scout's design for the 2011 Dayton Philharmonic Show House & Gardens. The "Bare Bones" party was held this past Saturday, where patrons get a look at the house in it's "before" state, and see the designers' design boards for what it will look like "after".
Here's some shots of our space "before". We have the upstairs hallway.All the wallpaper will be stripped and the walls will be painted Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige.
Yep, it's just a long narrow hallway with a bunch of doors. What's a Scout to do?
Phenomenal gallery wall, that's what!
With that in mind, the Scouts always create a "client" for their Show House projects. This year we imagine our client is a chic woman who has a passion for horses and riding. We have a whole story about her in our heads.
One of the difficulties that arises from doing a series of personal photographs in an application like this, is how to make it seem like someone lives there without being too personal. Does that make sense? As cool as our "client" is; she is make-believe after all. Our dilemma was solved when we met Jennifer Muncy. She is a professional photographer who perfectly captures the excitement of the equestrian world. We are thrilled she agreed to let us display her work.
Make plans to attend the Dayton Philharmonic Show House and Gardens opening May 1st to see the finished Scout space in all its glory. Want a fabulous gallery wall in your own home, but don't know where to start? Call Vintage Scout Interiors at 937-312-9461 and make an appointment for one of the Scouts to come out and help you figure it out.
