I’ve got a tech guy working on my issues and hope to get moved to a new server soon. We still don’t know exactly what the problem is, but hoping that moving to a new server will alleviate my many problems with Feeds, blog loading, and pics not showing up. Hang in there with me!! Techy issues drive me crazy, since I don’t know how to fix them.
I’m just learning about the prestigious Cathedral Antiques show here in Atlanta this year (where have I been?) and got invited to the preview party of the Lanier House, the Inspiration house which was all redone for this show and 2 of my blog friends, Lori and Sherry, got a space in the downstairs basement area of this counseling house to take on and show off. We got to tour the whole house, which was very nicely done by several different top Atlanta designers, but they asked us not to share too much, so I only took some snippet shots, which I think you’ll still enjoy.
The Inspiration house will be featured in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyle magazine later on.
On the way to the Lanier House, I snapped these photos in one of Atlanta’s toniest districts near Buckhead.
Atlanta has some fabulous older houses that are to die for.
These were snapped with my point and shoot, so are not the best, but you get the idea.
Such a great street to view.
This church was on the corner and it’s a beauty too.
Cathedral at St. Phillip Episcopal church is who holds the antiques show every year.
And this is the Lanier House which was all newly decorated just for this project.
Outside, one of my blog friends, Ally, decorated the porch so pretty.
Inside, I took a few shots all around this large house, but I didn’t collect all the designers names. Loved this light fixture.
Dining room table.
One room was done up in a vintage hunting room with lots of fun things to look at.
Like a complete peacock all perched prettily.
And a leather vintage sofa and various animal heads.
My friend, Dayka, created a colorful hallway in the back of the house.
I got a quick pic with Lisa Mowry, producer/stylist with Better Homes and Gardens (middle). She is the one who got my kitchen approved for publication. Thanks, Lisa!
They really transformed this space and even added a rustic stained ceiling that was GORGE! Again, I couldn’t take a lot of shots.
Loved the mirror in this space.
This space had a bold use of color, navy and hot pink and was pretty to look at.
Loved the detail of this hot pink trim on the leading edge of the drapes.
Of course, a moss ball bowl is always a nice display.
Had fun seeing this pretty home all decorated up and if you’re interested in all the festivities of the Cathedral Antiques show, you can see all the info. It’s going on through the weekend.
