Thursday Treasure of Interior Design: Spring Awakening at Le Beau Chateau

The designers are busy readying their tabletops for the Spring Awakening event at Le Beau Chateau in New Canaan, CT next week.  Twitter friend, Laura Newman, who I met IRL last week at the Toast the Tour event for Near and Far Aid (so much fun!) has been sending me information about the upcoming event.  I can’t wait to share it all with you.

Spring Awakening is a Broadway inspired tabletop show to benefit Summer Theatre of New Canaan.  It begins on Wednesday May 12th with a Gala Opening in the evening and runs through Sunday May 16th.

A 22 room mansion set on 52 acres, Le Beau Chateau is  one of the last great estates of Fairfield County.  Purchased in 1952 by Hugette Clark, it has remained unfurnished and unoccupied for decades.

52 breath-taking acres!  Believe me, in Fairfield County, even two acres is a lot of property.

The floors are beautiful – simple elegance.  I can’t wait to see what the designer of this room will conjure up!

A grand staircase with the motif of the iron railing enhancing the wonderful curve of the stair.

I love the clean look of this kitchen with a large stove and lots of countertop workspace.

Won’t you join me next week at Spring Awakening at Le Beau Chateau?  It’s sure to be an amazing trip through a found treasure of Fairfield County.

      Hi Sean,
      Great to see you again here at my blog. I am not one of the designers at Spring Awakening. I had another project going on this past month and couldn’t put it together. Too bad as I love tabletop design. Next time. Are you going to the opening on Wednesday night? Hope to meet you there. Catherine

    This is positively breathtaking. I just moved to Fairfield County and really didn’t know that such architecture was so present in this area. I can’t wait to use your blog as a prime source for keeping track of such amazing design-related events!
