The Christmas Showhouse


Dec 19, 2010
OK…before I start this post I have an alert.  The Restoration Hardware store at Lenox Mall is closing.  Everything is 50% off.  Except furniture which goes on sale tomorrow morning [Sunday] at 8:00am.  They are actually looking for a stand alone space and their lease was up.  So I decided to go over with a friend today.  Of course I am not going to buy anything because I DON”T need anything…right.  OMG…I saw this lamp:

And I paid…drumroll please…..89.00  Originally 369.00.   I HAD to buy it right?  I mean somebody else would have bought it.  I started dancing right there in the store much to my friends dismay who told me to “get a grip”….whatever…I danced all day every time I thought of it 🙂

  Since  the Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Showhouse has ended I think I am safe posting a few pictures of my tour.  It was at The Mansion on Peachtree.  I thought it was great and all the designers did a fabulous job!

You really aren’t allowed to take pictures but the usual “showhouse nazi’s” weren’t there 🙂  So I snapped a few.

Yea..I know.  Pretty cool.

I am noticing A LOT of greek key lately?

I want to put this on my Christmas list.

I love the simplicity of these bookshelves.

Lets see…what don’t I like????  Nothing.

Nice chandelier…..See how brave I was…there is the “person who would yell at me if she saw me” standing right there by the door……

These were the cost of our national debt.  For real.  But I still want them.

Black leather, chartreuse and gray.  Sigh….

Where do they find these things?????

Must renovate my house so I will have some wall space for this!  “Find this first”…..


Screen…that fabric.

I almost walked out with this…party favor?

Nice detailing on a window panel.

So pretty.


Love how the stripes fade out.

There is that mirror again….I am obsessed.

A little shabby chic mets industrial.

Old green leather….

Totally brazen here..no regard to rules.  I am snapping away!

I love the different textures and color on this bed.

Hanging beside the bed.

God…I love this light.  Lets add that to my Christmas list also.

The other side of the bed.

That is the designer Mark Williams.  I want to have his babies.  That chest was a gazillion dollars.

Kitchen cabinets.  Note to self.  Paint cabinets black and then rip off doors.

Another note to self…..have my next chairs upholstered with handles on them.  Holy smokes.

Hmmm…those look familiar…uh…I HAVE SOME OF THOSE!

Great Showhouse.  Very sophisticated.  Hope you enjoyed.  Only 7 days until Christmas!  Whoa.  I will be leaving for Rosemary on the 26th for NYE.  Can’t wait to see all of my peeps…have a bonfire on the beach and just  relax and have some fun.
