Something fabulous is happening down on 30A. A lot of you will read that and think, "what's new, there is always something fabulous happening on 30A". But this is really special. And I have to miss it. It is a show house benefiting the arts....the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County. The 2011 Designer Show House for the Arts is happening right now down on gorgeous 30A in the town of Blue Mountain.

The Living Room of the Show House for the Arts
Living Room by Tracery Interiors, Painting over Mantle by Mallory Page

Tracery Interiors, the award winning incredibly talented design team, did the living room this year and chose art by Mallory Page and Candace Greer, two of the artists I work with and that Tracery represents in Rosemary Beach, Florida, and Birmingham, Alabama. In addition, Mallory was asked to set up a studio for two weeks of the run of the show house. So you can see great design by all of the talented designers who are lucky enough to call 30A home (my favorites--Tracery, Pizitz, Bohlert Massey), fantastic art in the living room by Mallory Page and Candace Greer, and an ocean view (really, Mallory? what artist is that lucky?) studio filled with Mallory Page's newest pieces. Mallory is only there through Friday but the show house is open until July 22nd.

If you are vacationing in Destin, Santa Rosa Beach, Grayton Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, Seagrove Beach, Rosemary Beach, Panama City, etc, etc, make your way to Blue Mountain Beach to see great design and support the arts! Tickets are just $15 (if purchased from Tracery) and all proceeds go to the Cultural Arts Alliance to keep 30A more than just a beach keep that something special happening year round.

Here is the link for the CAA's website with all info for the show house:

If you are lucky enough to see the show house, please send me photos. I have been for the last two years and am really sad I will not get to see it in person this year! Enjoy!
