Part 8 – Let’s Meetup at Lucketts! is HERE.
Let’s say there was this cool old house that you could decorate any way you wish, using all the things you love. Wouldn’t that be like a dream come true?
That’s exactly what visiting Lucketts’ Design House is like.
For those not in the know, I was in Virginia in early summer and got to take in the Old Lucketts Store event, with over 200 vendors in Leesburg, Virginia. It was an unbelievably amazing time!
Anyway, The Design House at the Old Lucketts Store is a monthly interior design showcase where everything is for sale. It’s an entire home set up like a home that you can shop from! But it’s so much more than that. It’s a dreamy escape where you fall in love with everything you see. Ready to drool?!
Welcome to a tour of the fabulous Lucketts Design House, the summer edition! Just a few months late. 🙂 No worries, I have something to tell you about this at the end of the post…
This was my favourite room/s. Do take your time looking at every single detail of these pictures. There is so much inspiration here it’ll blow your mind.
Isn’t this the dreamiest bedroom you’ve ever seen? French doors open up to the bed area. The strikingly dark hanging lanterns are so whimsical.
Along the celling, the stylist attached willow branches. Adore the effect against the sheers and sunlight.
Did you just die a little looking at that trunk on wheels? I’ll take the pillows too.
Isn’t that file tray cool with the numbered plates? I’ll take the furniture too. The distressed finish is perfection.
Unusual layered plates. Burlap textured chairs.
The stripped finish on the table is wonderful.
How about a little coastal flavour for the sand and surf types?
Unusual, colourful, fun!
Did you gasp? I sure did when I walked into this room. Isn’t that elaborate white distressed headboard magnificent?
How are you doing so far? Ready to move in yet?
Owner Suzie told me it was quite a challenge to set a store up like a home. It takes the designer one full day to set up each room. I loved the story on how they go about it HERE.
Isn’t that gate wild along the wall?
Positively weak for those sheers! Wasn’t that fun?! Which was your favourite room?
While this amazing display was back in summer, I have some wonderful news, and trust me, this was all a complete fluke. Lucketts doesn’t even know I posted this now. Upon looking at their website, they are about to fire up their Holiday Open House on November 8, 9 and 10! The house is all decked out for Christmas in a BIG way! You can go! If you’re close.
Holiday House website info is HERE.
Holiday House blog info for updates is HERE.
Old Lucketts Online Store is HERE.
Disclosure: Old Lucketts Store did not compensate me for this post. I just wanted to share how beautiful the Design House was.
Next up… Part 10 – Taking in historic Leesburg. One day. If I remember… 🙂

LOVE IT ALL! Thanks for bringing great ideas and inspiration to me with my morning coffee!
Holy whatchagonna do….WOW so beautiful. Thank you for your beautiful pics and walk thru. Just WOW.
Hi Donna, One of these days I’m getting to Lucketts! Thanks for sharing these gorgeous rooms with us. I love that bedroom with the lanterns too.
The little lettered trunk….Am not sure of the size, but this little trunk would be so easy to recreate. What appeals to me is the use of regular upholstery tacks. Is that what I am seeing? Or did they use something else? Some of the upholstered furniture looks like they used them also. Regular decor tacks would seem to be larger. I may have missed something along the way, but never thought about using them for finishing. Inexpensive and available in a range of sizes. Or…where would I get what they used?
These rooms are wonderful and could move right in. The decorator certainly knew what he/she was doing and went beyond in every corner. Or are the Lucketts themselves decorating? I would love to be able to live tight quartered like the rooms shown. My home is a smallish cottage and so much is written about scaling down, open spaces. None of the rooms have been scaled down and they still call out like open spaces. They have used every inch creating “spots” to want to be in.
Thanks for sharing this, heading over to Christmas.
I was there! You can walk thru the house five times and then do it all over again and still miss something wonderful. I am so sad I will have to miss the Christmas Design house. It should be on everyone’s Christmas wish list each year. xo
I agree Lynn! Anyone remotely close needs to grab a Starbucks on the way and take it all in! So incredible! It’s a Disneyland for decorators. 🙂
Wow! I loved every room. Wish I was close enough to attend the holiday open house! I hope you’ll post pictures soon!!!
Hey Virginia, sorry to confuse… I don’t live anywhere remotely close to Lucketts. I was there for an event this summer and am back home on the other side of the country. But if I could, I’d be there in a heartbeat again!
I am seriously jealous you got to see this in person! I love the first room the most! Some day I need to go and see this for myself! Just beautiful! Thank you for sharing – it was fun to visit with you. 🙂
Yours are the best photos of Lucketts I’ve seen. I wish I weren’t so far away. All of the rooms were inspirational, but that garden room with the poison green scarves and wonderful exotic plants was really intriguing. And that mirror behind the overstuffed chair in the room with the wonderful sheer curtains is calling my name! Thanks!
I love this house!! I wanted to pin every picture! (I had to stop after like 8! lol) Thanks for sharing!
What a wonderful place! Thank you for the tour!
WoW! What is this address again? I DO want to move in!
Definitely, going there is now on my ‘Rusty Bucket List’.
Thanks, Donna for sharing this tour, with your amazing photos.
Oh wow, thanks for sharing! Love it!
Love LOTS of stuff in this post!
OMG!!!! I’m drooling over these pictures!! I can’t decide which room. I think I’d take pretty much everything from all the rooms. Wowza.
WOW!WOW!WOW! We are purchasing a new home and I just want to try all of this. So excited. Beautiful ideas and pictures!
Wow Donna! This place is beautiful! I love your site by the way! I visit you everyday and look forward to seeing what trash you have made into a treasure. I am new to the blog world but I’m just loving all the inspiration there is out there. Keep doing what you doing and have a great weekend!
That was fun! Thanks!
This would be a dream of a place to visit. Maybe someday.u
Thanks so much for the lovely write up and photos. We are so happy you enjoyed your time on the east coast and poking around Lucketts 🙂
Ohhhh, it was the best time EVER. Thanks again for having me!
Wow! Amazing things in each space! I think the dining table and chairs, and the wood trunk with the wheels were my favorite things. The bedroom area with the lanterns is gorgeous!
Wow! Now that’s a house I could spend all day in! Lots of great finds and inspiration, I just need a big U-Haul and an endless bank account! Thanks for sharing!
Loved your article on Lucketts, I have spent a lot of time up in Northern VA. love that area. The next time you go I hope you go a little farther up the road and visit my friend Rosanna Smith’s shop in Aldie, VA. about 40 minutes west of Lucketts off RT 15. Her shop is Bella Villa, http://www.bellavillashop.com she’s on FB too but has 4 different pages that she needs to incorporate somehow. Anyway, you would love her & her shop, a little French/Italian/rusty/crusty/everything we love.
Gypsy Paintbrush (Paintbrush Cottage)on FB.
You need to get rid of that Voicefive survey box, can’t even see photos.
Box won’t close, even though hitting close button.
Looks like nice website, if you could see.
So many ideas here to adapt and personalize. I love fresh inspiration!
Lucketts Spring Market has been a tradition for me and my daughter since its inception – as is the Old Lucketts Store and the Design House. I am lucky in that I live only 25 minutes from this fabulous shopping experience. The best is that there is a monthly flea market on site-vendors and merchandise are always a surprise – and a treat. LOVE this place!
