Inspiration Courtesy of the High Point Designer Showhouse
We all need inspiration.
With a goal of raising $200,000, the Designers’ Showhouse is the largest fundraiser for the Junior League of High Point, Inc. and has hosted the third Designers’ Showhouse for the JLHP in the “Furniture Capital of the World.”
The 2019 High Point Designers’ Showhouse is the Dalton-Bell-Cameron house. Built in 1913, the house has survived two fires, and was slated for demolition. Believed to be the first example of the Craftsman style in High Point, the house at 1013 Johnson St. stands on the corner of Farriss Avenue and in the heart of the Johnson Street Historic District. Today, it is being rebuilt as a true testimony of forward thinking and the power of historic preservation.

Kitchen by Allen and James Interiors: Allen and James Interiors opted for a “new traditional” aesthetic in the first-floor kitchen. The Joleena HighArc Kitchen Faucet in polished nickel takes center stage in the space and is complemented by cabinetry, countertops, and finishes with clean yet classic elements—a perfect backdrop for entertaining and family dinners. Emily Chandler, of the Allen and James Interiors design team, remarks, “In making selections for the showhouse, we chose the Joleena collection, because of its sleek design. We wanted a fixture that was clean and modern, but had enough elegance to complement the home’s rich history.”
Master Bathroom by Right Meets Left Interior Design: On the second floor, a sage-hued master bathroom designed by Courtney McLeod of Right Meets Left Interior Design is at once serene and vibrant. The room features a stylish shower outfitted with hansgrohe’s new Joleena 1-Jet Showerhead—which emits a voluminous spray while operating at just 1.75 gallons per minute–and the complementary Joleena Shower Trim in brushed nickel. hansgrohe’s Joleena Tall Single Hole Faucet and Talis S Freestanding Tub Filler with handshower in brushed nickel adds elegance to the his and her sinks and the bathtub. McLeod remarks, “Our design for the master bath incorporates a well-balanced mix of early-20th century Craftsman design and cutting-edge bathroom design. The transitional style of the new Joleena line by hansgrohe was the perfect fit to tie these varied design elements together to create a harmonious and stylish environment.”
Hall Bathroom by kate.h.design: Just down the hall, High Point native Kate Hutchison of kate.h.design, offered another stunning shower oasis incorporating hansgrohe’s Joleena 1-jet Showerhead. The room also featured the Joleena Widespread Faucet in polished nickel, as well as a Joleena collection toilet paper holder, towel ring, and robe hooks—the clean lines, classic shapes, and the warm undertones of the polished nickel finish perfectly played off the gold and soft pink decorative accents. Of the collection, Hutchinson says, “I don’t know how else to describe the Joleena collection other than to say it’s the perfect transitional line. It’s fresh and current, but also classic. It’s a no brainer, because its lines work really well with many other styles of lighting, cabinetry hardware and mirrors, whether they are contemporary or traditional. The polished nickel finish was perfect (It’s one of my favorites), because I often like to mix and match finishes in the same space.”
Powder Room by Elissa Grayer Design: Finally, in the first-floor powder bath, Elissa Grayer, of Elissa Grayer Design, selected the Joleena Widespread Faucet in a rich matte black finish. The dark hue of the faucet formed a strong point of reference against the room’s textured walls and provided contrast to the rosy pink patterned fabric that adorned the window shade. A single piece of dark quartz spanned the floor, “grounding” the space and allowing the decorative elements to flourish. The Elissa Grayer Design team notes, “The new Joleena Collection was so easy to work with. The style is very transitional with clean lines and rich finishes. We chose the matte black, which created a stunning contrast to the white porcelain vanity, working beautifully in our modern design, yet honoring the craftsman style architecture of the home.”
