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