2016 People's Choice Winners - Best in Show!!
Two creative designers take on historic home and win Best in Show – The People’s Choice Award at the Lewiston Historical Association’s Annual Tour of Homes, December 3 and 4.
Over 1,000 attended the 12th Annual Tour of Homes, benefitting the Historical Association of Lewiston. This event is a major fundraiser for the organization. Five homes were featured on the tour, along with 14 decorators and tablescape artists’ work. Each ticketholder was invited to vote for their favorite décor and holiday theme.
According to Event Coordinator, Melissa Morinello, The famous “Barton Mansion" on Center Street was the perfect pallet for friends and new Business Partners, Rebecca Acker & Laura Finkbeiner to showcase their creative talents and out-of-the-box décor designs. Laura & Rebecca of Décor by Labeck, created a well thought out and detailed decorating scheme for the home that fit its historic significance with a modern twist. Instead of going with a typical Victorian theme one would expect to see in a home of this stature, they utilized many natural elements from the outdoors to showcase “Christmas in a Forest”. Each room featured a different style, with many DIY (do-it-yourself) handmade decorations along with floral components throughout the home that were created by Rebecca.
Although all designers received rave reviews, the design and holiday décor at the "House of Barton" took the grand prize.
