Tuesday evening I was invited to the press preview of the Cathedral Antiques Inspiration House.  You should visit yourself because while Atlanta has a lot of Showhouses, this one is certainly upping the ante. The color is vivid, local artists are represented, and the details are to-die for.

Love the art in the Library by Lindsay Coral Harper, she also has painting from local Emily Amy Gallery that could not be more perfect in the space.
and the contrasting details on the curtains.
This paint color in Laura's room look liked a neutral until you stepped into the (white) kitchen and saw the contrast.  Is mauve the new neutral?
Lovely details in Ladies Retreat by Elisabeth Jordan.  When you visit, check out the towels she has in the bathroom- more details!
Silver-leafed ceiling, uh yes please!  And Susan Currie even re-grouted the existing moroccan tile floor to match the design.
What's the first thing you notice?  For me it was the dark painted border along the edges.  Sort of like a drawing to create architecture in this room.  A pair of ladies were commenting how adept Chris Holt is at combining the new & the antique.  I love the custom combination of the upholstered bedframe with the iron canopy frame.
A beautiful, colorful but serene gender-neutral nursery by Allison Harper & Nancy Duffey.  Chalk-board wall & wall lamps.

While at the House, I also had the pleasure of visiting with friends Jennifer Boles of the Peak of Chic, Erika Ward of BluLabel Bungalow, and Ally of From the Right Bank, as well as friends who had decorated spaces in the House; Laura Walker Baird & Amy Morris and the editor of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles the ever-charming Clint Smith.

If you would like to visit, the house opens to the public on January 29th and closes on February 12th.  For more information visit:
