Atlanta Decorators Show House

In addition to Duane Hampton's lecture at the Atlanta Decorators Show House, there are many other show house events that you should be aware of...that is, if you plan to be in Atlanta over the next few weeks.

On Wednesday, April 20, designer extraordinaire Charlotte Moss will be the featured guest at a luncheon, lecture, and book signing at the Piedmont Driving Club. For more information on purchasing tickets to this event, contact

In addition to Moss, another favorite author, Florence de Dampierre, will present a talk about her newest book,
Walls: The Best of Decorative Treatments, on Thursday, May 5 at 4pm. The lecture will take place at the site of this year's Show House, the Lotus House. Tickets are also required at this event, so use the same contact info as above. (I'm currently reading "Walls" and it's a great book. I'll be writing a post about it very soon.)

Finally, there is a
Connoisseur Series of lectures related to the decorative arts. Speakers include Atlanta's own Spalding Nix, who will be discussing ten rules for collecting.

And don't forget to visit the designers' rooms at the Lotus House. There is a great line up of some of Atlanta's top decorators.

    What a tremendous gift this post from Duane Hampton was for all of us! I too am a voracious reader. My collection of books is very small compared to hers, but some of her suggestions will certainly find their way to my shelves. Thank you for sharing it with us and please thank Ms. Hampton for me.
