Field Guild to the Designers - Cathedral Inspriation House 2013

It's an antique market (Jan 31 - Feb 2), it's a one-day tour of homes (Sunday, January 27), it's an inspiration house (Jan 27, Jan 31, Feb 7, Feb 10), it's a major fundraiser. It's the happy design overload of the Cathedral Antiques Show and Tour of Homes.You should go. Angela at The Painted House has also blogged it. Lori at Lori May Interiors blogged it too. Ally at From the Right Bank blogged it.

Terry's tips for enjoying these things: !. You can't see everything so visit every room, take a little break, then visit every room again. 2. Introduce yourself to the designer, few people can do this, fewer still have the courage to do it in public. 3. Ask the designer about their favorites or interesting things in the room. 4. Look closely at one little part of the room. 5. It's OK to ask "Could I afford that?" 6. It's inspiration, you don't have to live there. 7. Folks hog the designers, you should interrupt politely after little wait. 8. Don't hog the designers.

Here is the plan of the Inspiration House. Here is my amateur Field Guide to the Designers. There are links to the details, professional pictures, and links to their websites. Hope it helps. Corrections welcome. Any more folks on Twitter?
