Joann and I are off to the Highpoint Furniture Show in just a few hours but I wanted to share with you some of our favorite highlights from this years Atlanta Symphony Decorators’ Show House. We were honored to have a sneak peek today with our other “press” colleagues. I tell you sincerely, that this was my favorite ASO Showhouse in many, many years. The design aesthetic throughout the home featured an extraordinary use of color, vintage finds, original art, stunning wallpaper and delectable textures.
I have to start with the front Study designed by our good friends Lance Jackson and David Ecton of Parker Kennedy Living. As David explained to me the custom made, screen printed Fromental wall covering is “Willy Wonka yummy. You just want to lick it.” Indeed it is.
Thank you Lance for your stylizing talents and your bravery with color!
I spy an original piece of art by Kelly O’Neal of Design Legacy.
Let’s peak in from the gorgeous foyer designed by Loren Audrey Taylor & Carolyn Abrams Taylor.
The living room was sexy cool like the designer himself Michel Boyd.
Another favorite space of mine was the Breakfast Room & Den designed by our friend Vern Yip. Vern’s work is very dramatic but still relatable. Notice the light fixtures that are from his brand new collection available thru Stonegate Designs. All of the casegoods Vern used are from Frontgate. The fabrics Vern used are from his collection for Trend by Fabricut.
You can tell Vern is a perfectionist when it comes to the details!
I think every house should have a gallery somewhere – large or small. They add so much personality to a home. This one was designed by Kings Home Furnishings.
Designer Melanie Turner’s guest bedroom was beautiful using the homes original wallpaper.
The feminine bathroom and dressing room swathed in navy designed by Danielle Rollins & Bill Ingram was a luxurious, peaceful retreat (the music piped into the tub).
Our afternoon ended with a special celebration with friends hosted by Parker Kennedy Living at The Blue Ridge Grill. Thank you David and Lance for your hospitality and friendship.
Bravo to so many of our designer friends for doing such a tremendous job at this years ASO Show House!
I would love to post more but I have to go pack for Highpoint! The press event was only two hours long. Joann and I really need to go back and take in the beauty and details of this years Show House one more time. The house, Chateau Soleil, is located at 4701 Northside Drive in Atlanta and is open to the public from April 18- May 10, 2015.
Enjoy and Be Inspired!
