Inspiration House

The other evening, I had the opportunity to attend a press preview of the 2012 Inspiration House, just one of the many events related to the Cathedral Antiques Show. Located at The Deanery of the Cathedral of St. Philip, the show house features some of Atlanta's top design talent plus one New York designer as well. I could tell that each designer put a great deal of time and effort into his or her room, and the results are really quite impressive. The show house opens to the public this Sunday, January 29 and runs through Sunday, February 12. If you purchase general Antiques Show tickets, admission to the Inspiration House is included. If you prefer to only visit the Inspiration House, tickets are $10.

Also, don't forget that Richard Keith Langham, Jeffrey Bilhuber, and Deborah Sanders will be guest lecturers at the Antiques Show. For more information on this and other Antiques Show events, visit the official website by clicking

    I love the snake fabric on the shades in the bathroom. Can you please tell me the source ?
    Thanks !

  3. Pat, I could not find information regarding that fabric. Perhaps you could email the designer? Her website is:

    Hope that helps!

  4. Adore seeing what others are doing + Thank you!

  5. I love the glossy raspberry cabinetry in the daring.

  6. "The Keeping Room" is simply divine - so elegant without going overboard. And that fuscia library!! Brilliant idea taking a typically serious room and infusing a crazy-bold color.
