Yesterday I went to the Atlanta Decorators Showhouse. I can remember going to my first Showhouse when I moved to Atlanta in 1989, and I have never missed a year. It is awesome to see so many beautifully decorated rooms in one place. I noticed lots of texture, muted colors, industrial elements, acrylic pieces, incredible light fixtures....the list goes on. It was the home of Arthur and Stephanie Blank [Home Depot] and the gardens were spectacular! My favorite rooms were the Kitchen/Family Room [Jimmy Stanton and Matthew Quill of Design Galleria], the Eat In area off the kitchen [Meg Adams], Dining Room [Shon Parker], Sun Porch [Melanie Turner], Cabana [Womack Interiors], Young Ladies Bedroom [McLaurin Interiors]. I wish I could have taken pictures. If you haven't gone to one, I highly recommend it, the last day is Mothers Day [May 9th]. I believe this is picture from the Christmas Showhouse that Jimmy Stanton did.
Today...off to Scott's Antique Market! Yep....one of my favorite things to do. I am shopping for a client, and hopefully I can stay focused on her instead of ME!
