Princeton Designer Showhouse & Gardens (Part II)

Today we continue our exploration of Priory Court, the designer showhouse of the Junior League of Greater Princeton. Our focus is on five additional rooms that caught our eye for their outstanding design elements and color palettes. In total, Priory Court has 28 different spaces that were revamped by over thirty different designers and architects. The designers were given a magnificent space to work with as the bones of the house had amazing decorative motifs and accents on the walls and ceilings. Of course being built in the 1930's, the houses interior walls were all cinderblock giving today's designers a bit of a challenge on how to handle the wall coverings and lighting.

Tudor houses tend to be darker on the interior, so it is a fantastically pleasant surprise when an interior space of a tudor house gives off the feeling of lightness. The windows in Priory Court were very large, Romanesque arches on the top with lead framed window panes that let the sunshine in. Kudos to the designers below for creating window treaments that were translucent enough to let the light in but allow for some privacy. And without further ado, here are some more of our favorite rooms. 

Second Guest Bedroom designed by Room Service Interiors LLC
Upon walking into the "city girl" bedroom on the second floor, you immediately are drawn to the warm textures and fun graphics found in the textiles of the room. A beautiful, custom headboard in French linen pops against the black and white modern graphical elements found in the room's accent pieces and ceiling wallcovering (which is petrified wood). And the bed linens are fantastically luxurious with a fine linen coverlet that extends to the floor in a bedskirt fashion; so chic and unexpected!

The Kitchen designed by Maximillian Hayden Architect, Inc.
This room was a breath of fresh air with open views and direct access to the lush grounds of the property. We were smitten by the hyper-articulated sink fixture (because we've got kitchen faucets on the brain) and loved all the found objects that made the space feel like home.

 

Sitting Room designed by Michael Herold Design LLC
The color palette in this room spoke to our hearts. The large stripes that were painted on the walls tied in the different shade of brown in the room which were accentuated by pops of gold, blues and greens. The biomorphic console table by the iconic Tony Duquette offered "the perfect touch of glamour in the most unusual form." Original windows let in fresh air, light and nature's music (thanks to a well placed water feature). *Be sure to look for Michael in June's House Beautiful as the New Wave Designer to watch!

There were many lovely small spaces throughout the home including these two in the kitchen/dining area. These spaces are just two examples of the care and attention that the designers paid to the existing character of the home to create functional and beautiful spaces.

 

Priory Court is a maginficent home that has been reimagined in a most luxurious mixture of traditional, modern and contemporary designs. Each space has an unique characteristic that is sure to attract huge accolades. There is a little something for everyone and one of the bonuses is everything in the house is for sale (that's right, just ask a docent or volunteer for more details when you visit). Grab tickets to see the house located in Princeton April 22 - May 20. For more information and to purchase tickets, go here.
