Design meets creative frugality - it is time for the 4th annual Frugal House, June 21-23 2012.  As many of you know, this is a worthwhile fundraiser for the North State Symphony.  All proceeds from this interior design showcase help keep high-quality music here in our hometown.  Nantucket Home thinks of our community like family, and is proud to be selling tickets for Frugal House this year.  Not only is it for a good cause, but the event has so much to offer!

For starters, this year the Frugal House is featured in a beautiful 4000 square foot, two-story home located in North Chico.  Surrounded by almond orchards, it is working vineyard, growing six varietal table grapes.  The owners have future plans to create this property into a venue for weddings or special events.  Looks like a day stay-cation to me!

Inside local designers and design students found a blank slate, a creative minds playground and paradise.  Here is a brief look into their “before” pictures.  For more photos, check out their facebook page by clicking on the photo below.

Using donated or thrift shop purchased furniture and décor items, the designers put their heads together to refurbish and repurpose them.   From chairs to wall art, lighting fixtures to fabric, it’s all been “re-designed” and is up for grabs at bargain prices.  Check out this fire screen made from an old window!

Other sneak peeks… what is it, what is it!??  Love that blue pattern!

It’s a chair! Or a sofa?  I guess we’ll have to wait until Thursday to find out…

We have tickets for sale for both general admission and the preview party.  General admission tickets are $15 each for the tour and sale held on Friday, June 22nd through Saturday, June 23rd. The preview party (Thursday, June 21st from 6:00-9:00pm) tickets are $35 each.  This ticket also grants you one day general admission for the sale and tour on Friday and Saturday.

Great design comes in many forms, and we hope you will support our North State Symphony through this fun and frugal design affair!
