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.
