ASA Decorators' Show House & Garden

It's open and it is wonderful!  If you live in the Atlanta area this is one event you will not want to miss.   For the past 10 years I've volunteered as a docent and though I'm never disappointed, I have to say this house is my favorite.   You are not really allowed to photograph the house so you will have to see it for yourself but I've posted a few photos just to give you an idea of what you'll find.

A radiator put to use as the plate warmer
It was wonderful to spend the day with a number of local designers especially Melanie Turner.  I also loved visiting with Kellie Griffin and her mom as well as Bill Murphy.

Great company and lots of fun

Loved the spoon plate holder

Amazing...Melanie made this settee

 The architectural detail was beautiful

The floor is handpainted

A mosaic floor...this photo doesn't begin to show the detail

I'm linking up with The Tablescaper to enjoy a Seasonal Sunday.

  3. What fun, Cheryl! Thanks for giving us a peek into the house and the lovely garden! Of course, I loved the plate display! And I loved your post on Dunaway Gardens. It's on my list of places to visit one day...gorgeous! Have a great week!...hugs...Debbie

  4. Hi Cheryl,
    It looks wonderful! The charger in the tablescape is interesting!
    I was thinking of wrapping my outdoor chandy in twine, tired of sanding and painting it every year!
    Hope you are well!
    Have a great Seasonal Sunday!

  5. I loved the attention to proportions. Everything seemed to pop out from its place according to size and perfect space. So beautiful...

  6. What a stunning home! Thank You for sharing it with us and have a wonderful evening!
