It's only Wednesday but things are getting done at mi casa.  In preparation for my party I had my house power washed and cowabunga it went from yellow [the pollen]  to white!  

I got almost all of my spring planting done and had my yard guy put down the pine straw and bark.  

Let the celebration begin!

On top of all that I knocked out a few accessory installs....

This is project I have been working on for quite a while...

I have tried to take after shots of this space but I don't have the here are a few small shots.

Here was the plan....
New Lee Industries sectional.
Paint walls a light gray.  Add pillows.....duh right?

Some Worlds Away, Currey & Co and West Elm goodness.

Install a great Raffia wallpaper in the foyer.

Dining room before....

After....No furniture yet because we are still renovating the front porch of the DR into an office.  Thibaut wallpaper.


Added some height with this West Elm piece.

Shopped for some vintage pieces...

Mixed in with some HomeGoods loot.

You remember this little makeover with the bench from HG's.  The kitty's daytime hangout.

Replaced the smaller table with this chest.

Painted the mantel and wallpapered behind the bookcase.

Did a little accessorizing....

As you can see we have made good progress and hopefully when it's finished I can hire a professional for some good images!

OK.....later tater tots.

Alrighty then.....we are coming off a wet weekend here in Hot 'lanta.  I had big plans for gardening and power now I will be scurrying this week to get everything done for my little soiree.

As promised I have more pictures of the show house Chateau Soleil.  Be sure to get there and see for yourself!

April 18-May 10

Let's start with the foyer by Loren Tayler.  Hot damn it was purdy.

Of course she had me at black and white....

Her vignettes were layered just right.

yum yum.

Kapow right?

Let's move to the bathroom designed by Beth Kooby.

Oh nailed it.

Adorb right?  The Hygge + West wallpaper looks so good in this space.

I don't hate this vanity.  Nope.  Not at all.

Blue ceiling....of course I'm digging that.

I got to meet Beth [bath] and Jennifer Bradley who did the Laundry Room and Office.

I was feeling this space with the gorgeous grasscloth wallpaper by Schumacher.

I love this little area for a puppy :)  By the way I am working on getting another rescue sheepdog.....more on that later!

This room was so good but I was chatting away and neglected to do the best job of taking pictures.

 Is this enough to whet your appetite?  

I feel like Atlanta is known for having one of the best Show House's in the country.  Of course I'm no expert but I sure do gush every year over all of the talent.

So back to the rescue.  I got in touch with the OES rescue and they have a girl in south Florida that needs a home.  She is 17 months old and her name is Camelot.  I can be her foster and if it works out then she is all mine!

So excited cause I sure do miss the love of a smooch muffin.

Have a great week.....get it done!

Yesterday I got a little peekaboo  of the ASO Decorator Showhouse.  I consider this one of the best perks of being a it is one of my favorite times of the year.

I have not missed one since I moved here in 1988. Let's just apply that to my OCD design obsession.

I walked up and was greeted with this.

Whaaaaaat....these planters!

Black and white goodness all over the place.   Designed by Chip Wade with help from my friend Kristen F Davis.  

After I found out they were from Frontgate I could not get home fast enough and go take a look.


So then I thought what else is fabulous right?

Outdoor pillows grabbed my attention....

Big surprise there right:)

I decided to keep with a theme.

 These babies aren't cheap but I might have to pick out a few!

How about some entertaining?  

Yes please.....

And some great serving trays!

I already have this Ballard everything here will work for me!

But back to Kristen!  First of all [and I don't mean this in a stalker kind of way] but she is so pretty that when you are talking to her it is almost distracting.....all good of course:)

She has been putting out some great art pieces lately!


I did take a lot of pictures of the house that I will be posting next week so stay tuned.....

Here in Atlanta I think we are in for a wet weekend which doesn't bother me cause I had my Keritin treatment yesterday!


Bring on the humidity....I'm feeling cocky.
