2005 ASID Showhouse, Raleigh, Andrew London Historic House

Michael Steiner was honored to be selected as one of the interior designers for the 2005 ASID Showhouse, the Andrew London Historic House (1916) in Raleigh, NC. The house was designed by James A. Salter and this is one of Raleigh’s finest homes. The house is gracefully sited in the historic Blount Street neighborhood, adjacent to the Governor's Mansion which is one of Michael's ongoing design projects.

For His Master Bedroom:

  • Design and selection of lighting
  • Selection and specification of all interior finishes, including paint, wallcoverings, and floor coverings
  • Custom-designed window treatments, fireplace surrounds, mouldings, and closet built-ins.
  • Furniture layout, selection, and procurement
  • Selection and procurement of all accessory items
  • Overseeing entire installation

With our increasingly high-octane lives, a place for solitude is becoming a necessity in order to relax, recharge, and refocus. The goal was achieved in this bedroom retreat by paring down the design to strong, clean lines. The warmth is provided by the juxtaposition of dark wood and multi-tone glass against sumptuous velvet and illustrious fabrics likes chenille and mohair. Borrowing elements from Asian design, the creative and versatile sliding screens not only mask a problematic window layout, but also lend a spirit of meditation as well. The iridescent bedding, window fabrics, and sensuous curves of the nightstands add some Hollywood glamour to the mix. Whether it is catching the morning business report, curling up with a good book, or hiding out to catch the game on ESPN, we think our Modern Day Cary Grant would be quite rejuvenated by an hour or two spent in his master bedroom.
