Scouted Spring 2015 Listings

tsg-real-estate-2800-stratford Throughout the spring we spend a lot of time thinking about how we can refresh our homes—including the ultimate spring house overhaul: purchasing a new one. This is an excellent time of year to seek out a new abode; warm weather and abundant blooms make prospects feel oh so inviting, and the number of options seems to increase every week. Inspired by the uptick in inventory, we decided to explore what’s on the market in some of our TSG cities. The range was almost as impressive as the charming details each property offered. Whether you’re looking for a Lowcountry escape, a modern stunner outside the city (like the above, from Austin), or a room with an unbelievable view, prepare to Scout your next house:

Insider’s Itinerary: Caroline Faison’s Greensboro/High Point Must-hit List

Insider’s Itinerary: Caroline Faison’s Greensboro/High Point Must-hit List On Thursday morning in High Point, North Carolina, the doors will open at the Antique & Design Center, kicking off the High Point Market experience for thousands of design-minded individuals ready to explore the unique finds, original art, and carefully curated treasures located inside. Two days later, the Spring High Point Market will open, with more than 2,000 exhibitors filling millions of square feet of show space with their wares. In anticipation of these events, we sought advice from the Greensboro-based matriarch of European antiques, Caroline Faison, on what not to miss at Market, and where to go should we wish to deviate from the High Point paths. Here is her shopping-focused itinerary:

In Greensboro:
For a dose of floral inspiration, Faison recommends paying a visit to her former shop neighbor, florist extraordinaire Randy McManus. A true artist with his arrangements, you never know what you’ll see—every trip to his shop is a visual treat.

For a wonderfully curated shop, Faison recommends putting Glenn Lavinder’s The Pink Door on the to-visit list. The epitome of Southern design, it is a fantastic mix of color and classics.

For must-see period pieces, Faison says to stop by Phil Barker Antiques & Restoration. The best at restoration in North Carolina, his showroom is filled with exquisite English furniture.

Additional outlets for discovering great finds for one’s décor include The Red Collection, an expansive consignment store, and The Shoppes on Patterson, which is a group shop offering antiques and home furnishings.

In High Point:
Of course a visit to The Antique & Design Center, where Faison will be showcasing gorgeous antique pieces, is a must!

In Market Square, Faison says Tommy Mitchell’s booth is a must go-to place. Now located in Chapel Hill, Mitchell has deep roots in Greensboro, where he worked for years as an art restorer, and his stunning floral metal sculptures deserve to be seen in person.

Also on Faison’s to-visit list is Modern History, which will have a showroom at 430 N. Wrenn Street. A furniture store that sells new pieces based on antiques bought by Michael Beaver during trips to Belgium, Modern History has a section in their store that has incredible antique finds.
