Earlier this year, we profiled Maine designer and painted-furniture artist Phyllis Giordano, owner of Painted Treasures in York, ME. We're happy to report that Phyllis was selected to update a room in the Old York Historical Society's annual decorator show house “Dover Bluff,” a three-story, seaside Victorian “cottage,” circa 1876.
In an article in the June 15, 2005 edition of Seacoastonline.com, Phyllis commented on her treatment of the master sitting room:
“Homes of the period were designed for relaxation and joy. I wanted to bring in the aspects of ‘fun on the seashore’ to the Victorian cottage,” said Giordano.
To be selected as one of the 21 featured designers at the OYHS decorator show house is a real honor. For a business in its first year of operation, Painted Treasures is particularly pleased to be counted among that number. Congratulations, Phyllis!
