Vanderbilt Carriage House Designer Showhouse

The Vanderbilt Carriage House at Bogue Chitto Estate in Bar Harbor was the 2014 Designer Showhouse sponsored by The Swan Agency SIR and Maine Home + Design.

Proceeds benefited the Bar Harbor Historical Society, and we`re very thankful.

The Before Picture


DESIGNER DREAM TEAM … Organizer Kim Swan met with members of her designer dream team Tuesday to go over plans for the Vanderbilt Carriage House Designer Showhouse in Bar Harbor. The house, which will feature the latest in interior and exterior design trends, will be open for tours this summer with proceeds benefiting the Bar Harbor Historical Society. As plans have evolved spaces in the structure have changed creating additional bedrooms spaces. “There is still time for additional designer participation,” Ms. Swan said.
“Fantastic meetings this week at Maine Media Collective and Bar Harbor Historical Society finalizing party dates, tour dates, posters, etc. Can’t wait for everyone to see final version of things. Very exciting. In meantime, new roof shingles going on Carriage House today”, said Ms. Swan.
