It's Show House time in Atlanta and yesterday I was lucky enough to preview the home.
Maybe I say this every year but hot damn it was almost more eye candy than I could bear. Of course the fact that it was an epic day on the weather front could have helped:)
This year the historic Palazzo Rosa [one of the most recognized historic family homes in Atlanta] was chosen to showcase the talented designers.
The Italian style home was designed by architects Neel Reid and Philip Schutze in the 1920's and has been called the "Pink Palace" because of the previous stucco color and the pink dogwoods lining the driveway.
There are 5 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms with 16,000 sq feet of complete fabulousness.
This is a before shot of the house from the press package.
I took this off Instagram [#asoshowhouse]
I am going to start with the Grand Salon designed by Barbara Westbrook.
The hand painted linen walls are original to the home and they were jaw dropping...
I mean these walls are almost 100 years old!
Another favorite room was Lance and David's [Parker-Kennedy] Master Terrace.
For real. They built this in the shop and then took it apart and had to re-install it.
It. Was. Fabulous.
They were sponsored by Scalmandre Fabrics.
Almost everything in the space was vintage.
I loved the mirrors....they were going to actually put in openings but ran out of time. Sometimes the second choice becomes the best choice right?
These guys are the whole package....fun, friendly and extremely talented. You can find them at Scott's sometimes and they are also competing in the ORC with a MBR makeover.
The kitchen and baths were renovated by Design Galleria.

This room by McLaurin Interiors was stunning. I was all over the yellow with the beautiful wall color [BM Pearl River].
Clay McLaurin has a fabric line now and I feel like it could become an obsession...
There is more....so much more.
I will save for Monday.
You must go. April 26 through May 18. Get your info here
