Designers decorate Old Governor's Mansion

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Two well-known designers are decking the halls at the Old Governor's Mansion in Frankfort.

Jon Carloftis and James Farmer III are working together to showcase the stately brick home in all its grandeur, according to The State Journal ( The magazines Southern Living and Garden & Gun are supporting the work.

Carloftis, who was working on the project last week, told the newspaper that the goal is to use readily accessible materials to decorate. He says the parlor will hold the Christmas tree and should have a more elevated style than the rest of the residence.

The finished work will be photographed on Thursday by the two magazines and a special reception will be held Thursday night to unveil their work.
