|Front of Show House|
Built in the 1920's by famed architect, Philip Trammell Schutze (had just finished the Swanhouse link to Atlanta History Center website), the house is modeled after several English estates. The house is a beautiful example of classic architecture.
As I entered the home, I asked if I could take photos - I had not brought my "good camera" but my everyday working digital that is less obtrusive. I was told that they did not mind (although official policy evidently was to discourage photography). I did ask each designer/room coordinator for permission and they encouraged me to take the pictures which I did discreetly - not my best work but you will get the idea of how great this house looks! I am sure there will be several decorating magazines who will do the interior justice with their descriptions and photos but here goes the preview!
|The guest room was very small but beautifully appointed. I loved the variety of seating options as well as the use of an oversized gentleman's chest (see last photo) in this smaller space - it did make the space look bigger!|
|The nursery was very sweet! I liked the use of lavender and "sock animals"!|
|I am always on the lookout for "chair ideas" and saw many in this home. Here are some of my favorites - comfortable looking but a little edgy - ikats, neutrals and graphics!|
|This man-cave was amazing as was the very petite young decorator who had executed it! My husband was spooked at how well she seemed to understand the male psyche! |
|Back of house with yours truly!|
|Tempted to shop - but didn't - some great items for sale!|
