ATLANTA DECORATORS SHOW HOUSE







It is that time of year again!!!

Yes y'all...... my favorite thing to do is go to the Decorator Show House.  

I have lived in Atlanta since 1990 and have never missed it.  That is 21 years people!!!

If you are a designer....a blogger....a regular person....you work in boring old insurance [Maria!] and you need inspiration then this is the event for you!

More than 35 designers.....24 interior rooms....and 3 garden spaces are going to be completely redesigned just for you!

This year the home is a Phillip Trammel Shutze designed 1929 Georgian-style home.


Some of the designers are:

Barbara Heath who owns a retail store called The Mercantile.

Here is her room from last year....

Melanie Turner

Her home....
Not too shabby huh?????


I'll take it.

Bill Musso

His work...



Jimmy Stanton


John Oetgen



I am going to include a few pictures so you can see that this designer can do any style!!!


How different are these 2 looks???!!


That is talent when you can do it all!  Some designers have a "look"....and that's OK.
I think you can do your best work when you stay true to your style, but it looks like John can work any style don't you think?


Barbara Westbrook


Hmmmmm....nice little gallery wall


She is GOOD.......I would just sit back and let her work the magic......no need to micro manage this one.

LOOK...I could keep going, but you get the point.

Go HERE to check out the whole list.

The dates are April 21-May 13.  Get your friends, your Mom, take a bus, a plane, or just walk....but go.

There will be inspiration all up in it.

Oh yeah...there are some fabulous gardens also!

There have been years when I went twice.  I don't like to be rushed.

Of course it is sponsored by our favorite magazine...Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles...so if you can't go eventually some gorgeous pictures will find there way inside for you to see.

Hunker down Wednesday......

Pin It!

Oh, I would love to go but I've got some other trips planned right around then and not sure I can make it. The spring is crazy busy, but I'll at least look forward to the magazine coverage of it. So jealous!!

One of my favorite things to do. I haven't been to one in a long time. Pasadena showcase has been one of my favorites. Cant wait to see what they do. Have a great time.

I'm chomping at the bit to attend a show house. The one closest to us doesn't show until the fall so I've got a little ways to go. Do report back with your findings please!!

I think I'm going to make it my business to go this year!!! When are you going?!

Raina Cox said...

Atlanta has an embarrassment of design riches - an endless number of beautiful homes, so many great shops and antiques resources, and a populace that truly cares about living well.

I'll be touring with you in spirit!

Huh, interesting what you said about being most successful working in your own style. Guess I never really thought of that. Lucky you to get to go to this showhouse. Atlanta seems like the center of the design universe to me. Well of course it is...you're there!

How fun! I have been to a few but it was a few years ago. Wish Atlanta was closer.

Hey, hey come you don't have your own decorators room? They need your style, creative design mind and your good vibe.

P.S Expect an e-mail.
