45th Annual Atlanta Symphony Associates' Decorators Showhouse and Gardens



This past week I I went South! To Atlanta that is.  The trip was part of the festivties celebrating #AATOP20, that is The Top 20 African American Interiors Designers, which I am pleased to say I have been listed on the past several years.

It's an organization formed by Pinkeggshell's Kimberly Ward. The trip involved a trip to the Atlanta Symphony Designer Showcase.

I've been to many, many, many show houses over the years and they are great fun.   I thoroughly enjoyed this one as well.  It's always a great experience as a designer to let your imagination and pocketbook run wild, when you can create from a 'set designers' perspective of illusion as 'real people' don't live there.  But when, great rooms are created they are approachable and livable too.

My approach is to run through them quickly and photograph them while empty.  Then I take two passes looking at details.  Original architectural details always stop me in my tracks!  I am divinely captivated by craftsmanship.  On occasion I succumb to 'newness' but nothing tops skill and craftsmanship.  Yes, I will ALWAYS be that girl!

And oh yes, the house is on the market for sale!  Unfortunately, the last day is May 10th. So I'm thrilled I was able to check it out.  Well, there's always next year!
