Designing: 1st Floor Guest Bathroom

The guest bath is the one place in any home where guests can pause, relax, and fully absorb their surroundings. I hope to achieve an atmosphere of simple elegance that relaxes the senses through aesthetically pleasing textures and colors as well as the scent of lavender and the sparkle of glass and silver. This will be exhibited through the use of floral patterns, natural textures,  accessories, and plush textiles. Rather than being uninviting and cold, this bathroom will be light, airy, and relaxing.

Christa Shive moved from Baltimore, Maryland to Lynchburg, Virginia to pursue her passion for Interior Design. While completing her degree in Interior Design and Business, she began working for Mahone’s Decorating Center as the lead Designer at their Forest location. Christa has a deep-rooted love for historic construction and renovation and is ecstatic to have a hand in bringing this year’s Design House to life! Mahones has been family owned and operated since 1969. Dedicated to supplying excellent designs, quality products, and an unmatched level of customer service, Mahones provides services for both residential and commercial clients. From wallpaper, fabric, and accessories to custom window treatments, blinds, shutters, upholstery, pillows, and furniture, Mahones has it all.
