ASO Decorator Show House & Gardens 2010

This year the Show House should underline AND GARDENS in the title. Wow! This is my sixth year of volunteering with the house and every year (well, almost every year) I say "this was the best house" and this year is no different. Later in the week I will tell you more about the room I was in and about my favorite designer Meg Adams of Meg Adams Interior Design, but today I want to tell you a little about the house and share some photos from the Greenhouse.One of the things I enjoy most the Show House is meeting the designers. Throughout the show many of the designers are on on hand to talk about their work and details of how they put the room together. Many will also share some of favorite places for resources. While there are incredible antiques used throughout the house, there are also custom made pieces that were designed to suit the style and spaces in the house. Unfortunately they don't allow pictures but most designers have postcards with professional pictures of their room available for the taking.

The cushions on the settee below are in a lavender crushed velvet. The tuft buttons are covered in a beautiful moss green.
I loved this lampshade

Don't you just love this succulent bath?

This year's house showcases the house, pool, cabana, greenhouse and over 4 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. There is even a mama duck at the lake who has just laid an egg. From the greenhouse patio you should be able to see her on the bank of the lake.

The house is currently owned by Arthur and Stephanie Blank. If you live in the Atlanta area make plans to visit this year's show, "Giverny." As I mentioned - no photos allowed in the house but I did take some pictures outside and in the greenhouse. Confession - with permission from my good friend Meg, I also took one picture in her room but that's another post. Hope you enjoyed these few scenes from the greenhouse.

Be sure to stop in to visit Rhoda and see some of the great treasures recently discovered on Rhoda's Thrifty Treasures
