It’s been awhile since I blogged…I’ve been traveling and working like crazy all while balancing a little thing called my personal life. Thank you for the nice emails and texts telling me that you missed the blog and hoping everything was okay with me. Yes everything is cuckoo but all good and I so appreciate your thinking of me.
So let’s get to it! I was happy to go to a wonderful cocktail party at the Palazzo Rosa in Atlanta which is the site of the 2014 Atlanta Symphony Associates’ Decorators’ Show House & Gardens while I was working in Atlanta two weeks ago. It is always a whirlwind when I work out of town so I relished an evening of fun, friends and gorgeous rooms.
The Palazzo Rosa was built in 1926 in the Italian Baroque style and designed for lavish entertaining but serve as a comfortable family home for Joseph and Frances Rhodes. It was known locally as “the Pink Palace” since it’s original stucco color was pink and the drive was flanked by pink dogwoods. The architecture and design was actually the result of three Georgia architects–Neel Reid, Hal Hentz and Philip Shutze who spent three years in Italy studying classical Italian architecture.
Palazzo Rosa is the perfect backdrop for the designers who showcase their talents until May 18th and it was a beautiful place to enjoy an outdoor cocktail party.

The quartzite edge on the island!
Such a smart idea to include the dog’s bowls set in quartzite at the end of the island!
The coffee and beverage station is amazing. The middle (wood) drawers have room for silverware and the side pullouts were fitted with individual coffee cups (think K cups).
Lovely “hutch” for china and dish storage.
Beautiful! I was very impressed with all of the spaces.
Get there quickly my friends–this is the last week of the Show House!
Hope your week is wonderful.
