While down in the South (Atlanta) visiting friend and family, Tara was taken to a “Designer Show House”. Never heard of the concept before? Neither had we!
A ‘Show House’ is essentially a display home, however in this instance it was renovated and decorated with the intent of supporting a charity. The home owners put their home forward, interior designers are given a room each to refurbish and the house is then “on display” to the public for a few weeks, allowing people to tour through, see the work of the designer, and attend events hosted at the home. At the end, the owners can decide to purchase everything (aside from the kitchen and bathrooms – these are designed to stay), or have the home returned to its original stage. It gives the designers a chance to have a ‘live’ example of their work while raising funds for a charity at the same time. Genius!
While Tara took heaps of her own photos, the below professional shots do it much more justice. See more about the house at http://www.atlantamagazine.com/magnolia/
