Welcome to Matthews

 This is our 175 year old church which we lovingly restored over ten months 
and turned into our home furnishings and interior design store.

 This is the design studio which was previously the congregation hall built in 1983.
We gave it a false storefront facade to change the roof lines and match the church.
The sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains are a constant 
reminder of living in the beautiful countryside.

Our future knot garden is surrounded by antique fencing.


  1. Gorgeous church and gardens! I've always wanted to renovate a church. Really stunning!

  2. Both the old church and congregation hall have been completely transformed with the utmost care and respect for the former life of the buildings. Simply divine!

  3. gorgeous! both the garden and the church. Happy weekend!


Thank you for your note!
