Making My List & Checking it Twice

It's that time of year again (honestly it's been that time of year for over a month now, I just haven't had myself totally pulled together!) Mark and I are fortunate enough to have been asked to participate in the 2010 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Christmas Showhouse. This year the showhouse will take place at the Mansion on Peachtree and will be composed of two units on the 41st floor. I am proud to announce that we are working on the Master Bedroom in the South unit and we are in some fabulous company (including my all time fav--Susan Ferrier--I flip for her jewelry and personality.) We are still pulling it together and so far we are really loving the direction that it's taking and DYING over this year's "client." Last year Mark and I felt like our room was a tribute to Rhoda Morgenstern and we proceeded as if she was our client, naturally we decided this year we needed a new client. This "Rare Bird of Style" is really forcing us to pull out all the stops and we are having a great time with it. Take a look at some snap shots of our space from this week's site visit.








This year's client is a style icon, do you know who she is?

It's an interesting building, the more time I spend there the more it grows on me.

It is not Edith Head but that is a great guess! She's fantastic too!

Iris Apfel? Can't wait to see the finished project...who ever it is!

Rory said...

Love Iris Apfel! This is pure genius. Can't wait to see it!

It is Iris Apfel!!! Mark and I have developed a new obsession with her. Of course our room will be tailored in true MWDA fashion, but she is our source of inspiration for this year's design.

I was going to say Iris but I couldn't remember how to spell her last name and didn't want to seem ignorant, but I just guess I showed I can be - lol. Can't wait!

Feeling ignorant. Don't know who Ms. Iris is, but I love her skirt! I am truly excited about this show house. I am excited about the inclusion of young designers like you and Capella. And yeah, Susan Ferrier is pretty cool, too ;-)
