CPCC Interior Design Graduate awarded 1st Prize in 2013 Southern Spring Home and Garden Show IDS Showhouse

Ruth McKinney was awarded 1st prize in 2013 Southern Spring Home and Garden Show IDS Showhouse. Ms. McKinney, a CPCC 2010 Interior Design graduate, is currently the proprietor of McKinney Design (http://www.mck-design.com).

The theme of the 2013 Southern Spring Home and Garden Show was “Hollywood and Vines”. Ms. McKinney drew inspiration for her award winning room from the 1999 version of the movie The Thomas Crown Affair with Pierce Brosnan and Renee Russo.

Ms. McKinney shared how her design came together: “As soon as I thought of the movie, I knew I had to use Magritte’s Son of Man above the mantle (anyone who has seen the movie knows why) and it was clear that the room needed to be a sophisticated (and wealthy) bachelor’s study. With the help of vendors who loaned and/or donated their products and services – furniture and accessories, area rug, window treatments and framing – the room came together better than I imagined!”
