O’More College of Design Show House Returns to Main Street

O'More Show House

Nineteen leading interior designers from three different states are completely restoring a historic home on Franklin’s historic Main Street as part of the O’More Show House, which will be open to the public from April 29 to May 15, 2016.

This is the third O’More Show house event in recent years, with participating designers having ties to O’More College of Design in downtown Franklin and proceeds benefitting the College’s School of Interior Design. This year’s home, a 5,200 square-foot Ca. 1919 brick and stucco Craftsman-style cottage, is a significant contributing property to the National Register-listed Hincheyville Historic District. The owners have undertaken a total renovation of the home’s interior, while leaving the street-view exterior intact.

“The last two Show House events have been covered extensively by the national design media, which tells you what kind of talent the College has produced over the years. This group of 19 designers represents four decades of O’More alumni, plus two out-of-state designers who were selected to participate,” said JoAnne Haynes, ASID of J. Haynes Interiors, a Show House co-chair and a member of O’More College’s Board of Trustees.

Evers Interiors (Terrace Level Living Area). The outdoor living spaces are being designed by Ginger Kelly of Graham’s Lighting and Outdoor Living.

The 2014 O’More Show House, which restored the Ca. 1904 Queen Anne Victorian Dozier Home on Franklin’s Main Street, raised approximately $100,000, and proceeds were in turn used to restore the historic Berry House on the O’More campus as the new home of the College’s School of Interior Design.
