All About the Bespoke Design Retreat

If you’re dreaming of a getaway this Fall, the Bespoke Design Retreat might be just the escape you’re looking for! 4-days filled with Interior Design, Fellowship with Creative Women, Antiquing and MORE….

The dream to hold an in-person interior design retreat has been one I’ve had “in the future” for years, and the fact that I’m now just a few calendar flips away from it feels surreal and so exciting!

If you aren’t already aware of all the details, I wanted to share them with you here.

The Bespoke Design Retreat is happening this fall, September 18-22 in Orange, Virginia at the Mayhurst Estate!

Why did you name the Retreat Bespoke?

When we named the retreat “Bespoke”, we loved the idea that the title would be a reminder that this retreat is custom made for YOU.

All of the details that we’re planning and customizing are intended to bless you, increase your design knowledge and deepen your appreciation for beautiful things.

It’s a tall order, but one that I am so honored to have the pleasure of accomplishing with you in mind.

Who is Invited?

Well, put simply, YOU!

The Bespoke Design Retreat is open to any woman (18+ years of age) who has a desire to learn more about interior design among fellow creative women!

This is the perfect chance to schedule that getaway you’ve been dreaming of with your best friend, sister, mom, daughter, cousin or neighbor! Coming with a friend not only makes it easier to share expenses and have a travelling companion, but you’ll also have treasured shared memories from the retreat to enjoy for years to come.

If you want to share about this quickly with a friend, tell them to visit bespokedesignretreat.com to learn more!

Want to Know More about the Setting?

I am so pleased to be hosting this retreat at the beautiful and historic Mayhurst Estate in Orange, Virginia!

Not only does the estate have a rich history spanning over 160 years including it’s origin; being built by President James Madison’s family, but it is currently owned and operated by the lovely Cashell family.

Casey has been a pleasure to work with, and I can’t wait to meet her and see this beautiful Victorian inn in person; and the best part will be sharing the experience with all of YOU!

Our classes will be held in the newly restored summer kitchen with brick herringbone floor and sweet European charm!

Here’s a sneak peak of the Fall beauty awaiting us!

The Mayhurst is the American Equivalent of booking a French Chateau – a once in a lifetime trip filled with beautiful memories and new friendships.
