HER DRESSING ROOM
Julie incorporated window seats, elegant chairs, and occasional tables from Universal Furniture to ensure the owner will spend leisurely time with a cup of tea or browse the morning news before planning her outfit of the day.
“Another key component of the space is the three-way mirror so that when she’s finished dressing, she can look from every angle.” The wallpaper on the ceiling creates movement, as does the floor covering from The Rug Company.
In a curved niche outside the closet, Julie paper-backed a geometric black fabric and edged it with pink grosgrain trim and nailheads.
“In the primary bath, the dark flooring with white marble insets that we designed with Temmer has a masculine moodiness, but everything surrounding it has a feminine vibe. I love creating that yin and yang.”
Towels from Matouk have plenty of space on the tub’s marble top. It and the backsplash pick up on dark and light stone of the bathroom flooring. Waterworks’ Henry exposed wall-mounted tub filler shines against the marble and Benjamin Moore ‘Dove Wing’ walls, and an arrangement from Parties to Die For echoes the palette of a Joseph Adolphe painting above the bath.
“The hall from the garage will be a regular entry point for the homeowners, so I didn’t want the space to feel like it had been left behind. The Fromental wallpaper gives it glamour. It’s the spot to make coffee or keep water in the refrigerator so you don’t have to run to the kitchen at 2:00 a.m.”
Kathy Rainer and Tricky Wolfes of Parties to Die For in Atlanta say their motto is “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth overdoing.” For the showhouse, they created beautiful compositions in roses and corals, but brought their “go big or go home” approach to a magnificent cascade of Kahala roses, Country Home garden roses, peach stock, lilies, Coral Charm peonies, peach campanella, butterfly ranunculus, pink scabiosa, and white anemones in the east gallery. Even the birds in the wallpaper seem impressed by this bounty of blossoms.
