Working on a Showhouse

master bathroom soaking tub highrise capella kincheloe I was at The Mansion on Peachtree this morning placing the tub and tub filler in the Master Bath on the 41st floor.  Its not centered, I hope you don't mind!  The space is really taking shape, last time I was there it was still drywall and dust.  Today, all the floors, tile, tubs and vanities were in.  It was so nice to see everything together and in the space.  I took photos, but I doubt they want me to show the world before opening.  But it looks AMAZING.

I delivered the lighting this morning and did a little something special to the Master Bathroom sconces.  Keep a lookout for those when you walk through.  I also picked up all the linens and some accessories this morning.  I am in love with the towels!  They are beautiful.  Make sure that you take a peek in the Master Water Closet, something fun and whimsical will be waiting for you.

Working on a Showhouse is very different from having a client, I hear that some designers create an imaginary client to cater their designs to.  Like all of my designs, I have a starting point, something that inspires me to create the entire design around.  In the Master it was an antique credenza re-imagined as a vanity.  In the Powder Room it was the wallpaper, in the Guest/Study Bath it was the beautiful plumbing.

The Showhouse opens November 26th and features amazing designers - including fellow Californian Hutton Wilkinson.  Please come and see me, I am planning on being there everyday to answer questions and hear any comments.
