THE SHOW HOUSE!




Booyah....the Show House was a 10 in my book!

After going to the Decorators Show House for 25 years....faithfully can I tell you how special I felt getting to go in early and preview it?

I did.

AND now I get to show you a few pictures so that you will want to go see for yourself.  You.  Must.  Go.

The Foyer.

 Painted floors.....blue vases......furry benches.  What is not to like here.  Melanie Turner created a classic design.....and she was nice and pretty!  

Here she is talking to Stan Topal.  Look in the background....do you see the concrete and moss?

This room was crazy good.  The art work and the walls......and in the next picture...the perfume bar.
and look at a close up of the walls and trim...
I think this color was BM HC 132 Harrisburg Green.
One more shot..
Designed by Tish Mills.....check out that light fixture!
Look what fabric I found sneaking around?
This room was called The Butlers Pantry by James Farmer and Maggie Griffin.  Love the plates...
Same room....the place setting.
And these gorgeous chairs.....
Love those "baby" watermelons :)
The kitchen and all the bathroom's were done by the brilliant Matthew Quinn and his team at Design Galleria.  Are these shelves killing you?
If they aren't...then these knobs will.
Or these pulls....holy.....
The cabinets look funny in this picture, but they were just a creamy off white color.  Notice the mirror panels over the windows with sconces.

The hood is limestone.  Faint.
These mirrored doors.
The islands [yes there were 2] look black but were more of a taupe/brown color.
Look at the hardware on the doors....
I love the detail here with the shape of the rug.  Shut up.  This kind of thing is brilliant.

The detailing on the curtains.
Love this Schumacher fabric.

OK...there is so much more...but saving for the next post.

I am going to leave you with an image that stopped Ally and I both in our tracks.  We told the designer Jimmy Stanton that this image would be all over Pinterest.....see for yourself
Yep.
The whole room is awesome.
You gotta stay tuned.....
It opens this Saturday and runs through May 13.

Today is my small porch install.  My niece who is graduating from UGA with a degree in Interior Design [in May] is going to help her "home schooled" aunt!  Should be fun.....

Sha Razz
TGIF.

Wowzer! Love it... especially the kitchen! I have never seen anything like those shelves... love the hardware on them! And, do you think anyone would miss the plates in the butler's pantry? Because they'd look great in my dining room :)

This was a prime example of what can be done when you have equal amounts of talent, space and MONEY! What a delicious feast for the eyes. Thanks so much.

Good night. You Southerners can de-cor-ate.

Thanks for sharing the gorgeous!

Lauren@BaylorSays... said...

Sweet Pajamas. Those shelves are indeed killing me dead. Thanks for capturing the little details because they are what make it special. And why I'm not nearly as creative as I've managed to fool people into thinking I am...because I would never think of curtain trim like that.

You said it first concrete n moss peas n carrots

Victoria said...

Such beautiful details, Sherry. I wish I lived close enough to see it in person. I put the same mirrored door detail on the pantry in my new kitchen. Love the hardware chosen here, but I am guessing it is antique. Do you know? I found that was the hardest item to find that I liked for my kitchen redo. Looking forward to the next post. Have fun with your niece.
Best...Victoria

This is on my list of things that hopefully, my now retired hubby will do for me!! wish me luck, happy install, xo Kathysue

Cannot wait to go this week! The mirrors are a great solution for windows that are too short, I will borrow that idea! Congrats on reaching over 1,000 followers!

Amazing showhouse......geez this has me chomping at the bit to take a road trip! So beautiful....love going to a really good showhouse. The ones around here always scream too modern for my taste. I need to work my way down south!

Carol@HouseandHomeDefined.com said...

You know design is your passion when you look at rooms and just want to be in them and touch and feel everything and you sigh at every image. What a gorgeous house. Thanks for sharing it. Now I want to change everything I'm thinking about doing in mine. gRrrr.

Erin @ NonShrinking Violets said...
