Decorators' Show House Front

 

Decorators Show House & Garden 2015 - Front Terrace

The front terrace of this year’s show house & gardens by Chip Wade and Alexandra Hernandez, Chip Wade Creative, working with Frontgate invites you to sit a spell before getting mesmerized by the 14,000 square-foot home decorated from floor to ceiling by some of Atlanta’s most talented designers.

 

Dining Room

Dinner is Served. The dining room designed by Boxwoods Gardens & Gift was one of my favorite rooms in the house. Its clean blue and white palette was soothing and inviting. I was awaiting the dinner bell to be rung. “The room itself emotes timeless elegance, which we have enhanced by adding a modern flair,” say Randy Korando and Dan Belman, Boxwoods owners and designers. The painting is by New Orleans’ artist Jason Horton. His work is available through Boxwood.

Orchid in Dining Room

The breathtaking orchid arrangement in a dining room accentuates the room’s elegance. This is an excellent example of one of Boxwoods Gardens’ creative floral compositions.

 

Grand Staircase

The landing area in the foyer and the grand staircase was designed by Douglas W. Hilton, DWH Interior. Douglas shared that when he saw this space that he knew it needed a large-scale art piece. He worked with TEW Galleries to feature this 2015 oil and acrylic on canvas piece by America Martin, called Maid and Maiden Sail Away that’s 67″ x 108.” The sculpture on the landing is by Dave Wertz and his work is also available at the TEW Galleries in Atlanta.

 

Every house needs four powder rooms, right? This is just one of the three powder rooms on the main level designed by Beth Kooby, Beth Kooby Design. She wanted a fresh, joyful space with classic and sophisticated elements.

Every house needs ten bathrooms, right? This is just one of the three powder rooms on the main level, this one designed by Beth Kooby, Beth Kooby Design. She wanted a fresh, joyful space with classic and sophisticated elements. The curvature in the vanity opens up the space making it  more airy. All the elements worked beautifully and I feel that Beth achieved her goal of an elegant bathroom.

 

Guest Bedroom 1

This guest bedroom designed by Bryan Alan Kirkland and Lesia D. King, Kirkland & King Design Associates, was inspired by a Parisian bedroom from the 1940s and highlights Pantone’s 2015 color of the year, Marsala. To me, the room felt like you were in a fabulous high-end boutique hotel. I was ready to check in.

P1020612

The pool deck and gardens designed by Ed Castro and Hannah Seaton of Ed Castro Landscape was timeless. The large yard, pool, deck and gardens were so unexpected but then again expected after touring such a large home. The space was relaxing, soothing and elegant, and the chaises called me to sit and soak up the sunshine.
