We are so honored to take part in the Bucks County Designer House once again! For more than 40 years, the Bucks County Designer House & Gardens has been the largest fundraiser operated by the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown. This annual event now attracts more than 8,000 visitors each year. Proceeds from the event support Doylestown Hospital and the mission of the VIA.

This year, we had the pleasure of redesigning and furnishing the Great Room, a wonderful two-story space adjacent to the Grand Foyer.

Our designers, Bobby Huber Jr. and Melanie Cavanagh, were responsible completely transforming the space. Calling their design Redefining Rustic, the pair set out to incorporate the home's rich rustic appeal with modern accents. Here is how they described the room:

"Showcasing a refined twist on charming rustic style, the great room features reclaimed furniture mingled with sleek designs. Large scale furnishings balance the room's generous proportions and have been arranged to encourage relaxed conversation. A palette of gray hues harmonizes with the stone fireplace, while indigo and burnt orange have been introduced to add depth and warmth to this welcoming space. Modern furnishings paired with industrial elements create an open, collected, and lived in vibe."

Designer, Melanie Cavanagh, also commented that the room is meant to feel "as comfortable as your favorite pair of jeans."
