The three homes on tour were built in the 1930’s and boast beautiful architectural details. Fresh renovations, new design trends, and the homeowners’ commitment to beautiful furnishings assure that gracious living is alive and well in Roanoke.” A Kick Off event, Tablescapes with 3 Gents, will be held on Thursday, April 19 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at Provisions Gourmet and RSVP Limited, a household décor and kitchenware store on Electric Road.
