Those living in North Carolina who appreciate beautiful interior design will be in luck for the next couple weeks, as the Boyd Mansion, located in Flat Rock, North Carolina, will be open to the public for tours. The Burlington Times-News reports that designers have been working tirelessly to bring out the building's most striking features.

According to the news source, the home boasts a number of impressive amenities, including 13 fireplaces, seven bedrooms, incredibly high ceilings and sweeping staircases. The owners of the house, Cam and Sally Boyd, opened it to the designers and now the general public can purchase some of the most appealing furnishings that have been included in the rooms.

"Every one of the designers has done a wonderful job putting their statement in each room," Cam Boyd told the news provider. "We are really excited. It's going to be interesting for everyone to see."

One part of the challenge of in decorating the Boyd's home may have been maintaining the historic charm throughout its interior. Homeowners looking to add a timeless elegance to their dwelling can consider installing interior shutters as an effective window treatment. Along with an aesthetic appeal this option can provide increased privacy as well.
