FINALLY!! MY 2013 CATHEDRAL ANTIQUES INSPIRATION HOUSE ROOM DESIGN REVEALED! December 9, 2013 Remember allllll the way back in January when I was a Participating Designer in the 2013 Cathedral Antiques Inspiration House? Well it’s almost one year later and now that the pics were published in the December 2013 issue of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, I can FINALLY reveal my space to the world (minus those of you Atlanta folk who were able to make the tour)! As a refresher, here was my conceptual rendering for the space: And here’s what my vision looked like when it came to life: My inspiration was simple–I knew I wanted to go with a look that would be extremely bold for the size of the space (my motto for a show house? Go BIG!) yet still feel sophisticated and modern (read: dark & moody with clean lines). Essentially, I wanted it to be me but times 1,000 (lol). With respect to my concept, the finished space hit the nail on the head with what I wanted/hoped to see and am SO happy how the space turned out. The bold color was much more chartreuse than yellow (daggone pics!), but I love the way the images capture the look and feel of the overall space. Here’s a look at the back hallway/entry to the upstairs apartment BEFORE I created my magic: Talk about visual drama. It’s been almost a year since the 2013 Cathedral Antiques Inspiration House debuted and as I look back, I still don’t think there’s too much I would do differently given the same resources (and that’s saying a lot from me, someone who ALWAYS leaves a job thinking about where I can improve)–I loved this space! If you’re new to my blog, you can catch up on this series by reading the posts I wrote before, during and after my show house experience.

So now that you’ve seen the big reveal I have to ask…was it all you imagined??

You are truly talented and one of my top 3 fave designers. Best of luck in 2014!

Perfect boldness for a show house; I also think this design could work well in a home that has a Theater in the basement … stairs to the theater and the theater itself could rock this look. Reply courtneyoutloud December 9, 2013 at 1:48 pm (5 years ago) Congratulations! It is totally you (well from what I k now) and it’s perfect for a show home! It’s big bold and has alot of ideas that the public can cull from the space! BRAVA Reply courtneyoutloud December 9, 2013 at 1:48 pm (5 years ago) BRAVA! It is so you – young, fresh and fun! Reply Kimberly December 9, 2013 at 3:00 pm (5 years ago) Wow! That is quite a transformation! The doors almost look like the are camouflaged. Very cool space! Reply La Monica December 9, 2013 at 5:20 pm (5 years ago) I’ll admit, I wasn’t as sold when you first posted pics. Now that I get to see the full effect, it really is a stunning transformation. I’ve never been to a show house before, but in the pics that I typically see of show houses online, they all seem to play it “safe.” I love that you didn’t do that! The b&w photography was the cherry on top. Are you able to share a source? Reply Jessie | The Design Daredevil December 9, 2013 at 6:25 pm (5 years ago) Daaaaang girl! That is impressive! So happy for your props that you deserve! XO Reply Dee D December 10, 2013 at 3:39 pm (5 years ago) Brilliant!
