ADAC and Ainsworth and Noah

I have been going to ADAC a lot lately, the best place to go when gathering fabric selections for upcoming jobs.  Of course there is so much more there than just fabrics.  Beautiful showrooms with ton's of incredibly gorgeous things that I covet.

One of my favorite Showrooms is Ainsworth and Noah.  They have been there for more than 30 years with over 40,00 square feet of showroom space.  Some seriously beautiful collections from Ironies, Nancy Corzine, David Iatesta, Rose Tarlow, Summer Hill and Victoria Hagan.  Do I have your attention?????

As usual I was wandering around the other day waiting for fabrics and I took a few shots of my favorites.
These beautiful knobs from Nancy Corzine.

I know...me likey too.  She is such a classic designer.


Her colors remind me of Mrs. Howard.  Maybe a little more modern though.
Even though there is a sunburst mirror [trend] Everything else is pretty classic.  Nancy says "I believe we should always lead and never follow trends".  There is a lot of talk in "blogland" about how "trendy" should a room be.  I think classic is always a good way to go and then lean into current direction with a few popular trends.
Timeless with the blue and white, the screen and touches of brass. Once again...of course brass is back in a big way.  My advise is not to throw out all the silver.....cause it will be back and you know it!

One more picture of Nancy's work.  She also has a beautiful design book:


Here are a few other pictures I took while there last week.
Who does NOT love this settee.....come on.....I want to know.  How cute in a breakfast nook or foyer.

Beautiful wallpaper.
Look what I found when I googled botanical wallpaper...
You can find it here
Would look beautiful in a bathroom or one wall in a bedroom.
The fabric on the sofa is from Victoria Hagan.  She is another very talented designer. 
 
I LOVE her fabrics.
Even though this room was not designer by her [David Mitchell] that is her fabric on the DR chairs.  Remember when she did a collaboration with Target????  Victoria...come back please.....

On to more pretties...
Oh yeah baby.....come to mama....

You can come too...room for all!
This.....is.....so......gorgeous.
Way too much white for me.....HEE HAW.....you know that is a load of BS!
How about this screen......
Great grouping.....
What a statement a large framed grouping of pictures is.  Easier to hang also :)

OK...I have more but we will save it for another time.  I see you nodding off :)

Before I go, I want to say one thing.  A very good friend of mine died yesterday, within 3 weeks of being diagnosed with brain cancer.  I mean...seriously that is fast.  So I want you to get up from the computer right now and go hug every single person in your house and tell them how much you love them.  NOW...do it.

Cause, you never know.....

Peace....and love.


Pin It!

love the classics...and I agree that it's a good design principle to stick with classics and add a few trendier pieces that can be edited later if need be...gorgeous hardware..and fabrics...
best,
maureen

Wow, Sherry, I am so sorry to hear about your friend. And, on a way less important note... those Nancy Corzine pulls are amazing.
PS - What is ADAC? I know it's probably obvious, but I'm not in "the know"... ;)

The enchanted home said...

I am so very sorry about your friend, omg...I can't believe 3 weeks? I WILL go hug everyone in my family and Teddy is included. Thank you for this reminder of how precious life really is. I send you my condolences.

Wow this post is incredible!! I am dying over the beauty in every single picture, yes Nancy Corzine is uber talented, agreed. Beautiful interiors and loooove that hardware too.

Lauren (The Cottage Mix) said...

So sorry to hear about your friend, Sherry. Thanks for the reminder to not take a day for granted.

Kelly said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. That is so awful!! Cancer is such a scary thing and it can happen to anyone at any time. My husband is a firefighter and knows all too well how fragile life is. I don't take any day for granted. On a happier note.....your pics look great! So much eye candy to behold. I always love to see pics from your shopping sprees.

Naomi@DesignManifest said...

So sorry for your loss Sherry. You are right. I'm off to a family dinner right now. Lot's of hugs to go around.

PS- your design center kicks Philly's design center's ass. No fair.

Karena said...

Sherry,

I am so very sorry about you losing your friend, I do understand as I am a widow and still miss my husband so much.

What can I say, I adore the settee and the Victoria Hagen fabric on that sofa, Corzine's Pulls!! Amazing!

barbara@hodge:podge said...

Sorry about your loss. That is really crummy news.

As for you Atlanta design Center - jealous! But I have two throw pillows that are Victoria Hagen for Target. Love them!

My Interior Life said...

Oh, I am so sorry about your friend. So sobering. At church this morning we were talking about death. Definitely should appreciate what we have.

And once again, I have to go to ADAC soon! I do have a couple of Victoria Hagan for Target side tables. Still love em.

Holly said...

Whew, I'm sorry about your friend Sherry. Life is so precious. We should all be so grateful for every day that we have. I squeeze my little girl every day I love her so much. And thank you for the eye candy as usual - I'd love to meander around there some day.

Amanda Hill said...

GASP! Really great stuff...the pulls have me swooning!

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Thank you for this post! I just posted my bathroom reno selections and they are far from cutting edge. Stop by and let me know what you think. Planning a trip to ATL this week to see ADAC. Bringing my crappy camera, too!

Cindy Albert said...

I'm so sorry about your friend. It certainly is a reminder to really appreciate those that we love each and every day.

Sherry,

As always I am starting my week here.

I am so so very sorry about your friend. Cancer sucks. My heart goes out to your friend's family. I am hugging you too.

Many classy rooms today. The settee has my name on it. And that wooden table lamp. Gorgeous indeed.

Sending you warm thoughts and good energy.

I am so sorry about your friend, Sherry. How shockingly sudden. My children live far away, but I will call them tomorrow and give them a virtual hug. Thanks for all the beautiful images, and for being such a caring person.
Best...Victoria

LiveLikeYou said...

Waiting for fabrics seems like a dangerous thing. So many nice things to want!! So sorry about your friend. I'm all too familiar with it. Luke;s dad has lived with bran cancer now for 2 1/2 years, beating his survival odds. It makes me live in the moment every day, because it might be the last one we have.

traci zeller designs said...

((((hugs)))) I am so sorry to hear about your friend. That is absolutely heartbreaking.

Dying over the Nancy Corzine!

Oh my gosh that is so sad about your friend and such a good message you gave us to hugs the ones we have.

I still use my Victoria Hagan Target vases all over the house. So glad you took us shopping with you.

Lori @ Lori May Interiors said...

So sorry about your friend Sherry. Thanks for the reminder and the beautiful eye candy today.
Take care,

Privet and Holly said...

I grew up with a
sunburst clock and
my folks still have
it, so it makes me
smile that it is
considered "trendy!"
A lovely selection
of things to take in;
thank you!
xx Suzanne
PS: I'm hugging everyone
in sight, which at the
moment is just my dog,
Gracie, but wait until
the kids get home....Such
a shame about your friend.

Carmel @ Our Fifth House said...

Oh Sherry so sorry for your loss. Hugs! Cancer seriously sucks! I make sure to love on all my peeps every day because like you said you just never know.

Love all the eye candy - especially those gold pulls!

Ann said...

Oh I love that Victoria Hagan fabric on the sofa,

it looks so lovely. And the omega knob looks

elegant. The first cabinet looks divine.

Carolyn said...

Sherry, I am so sorry for your loss.I came within 24 hours of dying from and infection from a surgery this past March, and it changed my entire life.It made me not take a moment for granted.If we all lived(and decorated) like we were dying, the world would be such a better place.I know that your friend's life was better for having you in it...

Erin said...

I'm so sorry about your friend dying. Life is so precious. A friend of mine, Swedish married to an Irish man & living in Ireland, died last month. She had breast cancer & had been doing poorly for 6 months before she died. But I was still praying for healing & I was really upset about it.
