Knollwood (Part 2)...May is Decorator Showhouse Month

Come with me now that we have climbed up the stairs at Knollwood and we
 will head in to the very deep blue sanctuary of the master bedroom. Barbara
Westbrook has created a room that is tasteful, tactile, timeless and simply elegant.
But very dark and hard to photograph.

Matthew Quinn and his team of designers at Design Galleria Kitchen & Bath
Studio used rich materials that are timeless, elegant and loaded with
modern technology.

The lady of the house not only has a dressing area and separate bath,
but it includes a wonderful sitting area for her gentleman to join her
for reading or television viewing.

The television can be placed where the picture is over the mantle.

Attention to detail and a mix of antique and transitional make the guest
retreat, designed by Christy Dillard Kratzer, Allied ASID and Heidi Pierce, 
the perfect place to escape.

The lounge that Jimmy Stanton of Stanton Home Furnishings shows a history
of personal travel experiences, beautiful antiques and a comfortable
updated look.

Baby, Baby Sweet Baby! The Musso Design Group has a very contemporary
nursery for you! From the Art Deco to Biedermeir furnishings, this room
can continue to grow along with you!

Anyone would love the fabric drapery that surrounds the custom headboard
and bed. Designer Courtney Giles Decker used this as the focal point for the room that houses that special guest!

Up another set of stairs, we find more fun rooms! Barbara Heath and Tim Green
of The Mercantile (love their store) used a sports theme for the third floor
sitting room. A space that is elegant and understated.

A masculine retreat filled with unique vintage pieces a stunning billiard table and
lots of leather, antlers and horns! Kellie Griffin, IIDA and Paula Griffin have put
a classy spin on the term "man cave!"

Once we came back down to earth, we strolled past the beautiful pool area
and followed the stepping stones out to the Gazebo. Dressed out in reclaimed
wood, linens and a understated elegance this restful spot was designed by the
team from B. D. Jeffries. (Another one of my favorite Atlanta shopping spots)

This concludes our tour of Knollwood. As to be expected, the Atlanta Symphony
Decorator Showhouse committee and designers have done it again...can't wait
to see what they will have for us next year!
