Blue & White Bash

Happy December!  

I can not think of a better way to celebrate the month of December than with a party, and what better party than The Pink Pagoda's Blue and White Bash?  The Parker Kennedy Boys love The Pink Pagoda for so many reasons, but our mutual love for all things blue and white is at the top of the list!

The best place to see my love of blue and white would be the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays showhouse.  Here we have married classic blue and white with rattan, wood and greenery.  Add in some magnolias and bright red bows and you have the perfect holiday decor!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We love the classic mix of blue and white with green and red for the holidays.  And don't forget your gold, brass and gilded antlers!  To see our room in person make sure you see it this week as it is the last week of the showhouse.  This house is open to the public Wednesday to Sunday until this Sunday, December 7.

 

Go blue, white and BIG ... or go home!

Home for the Holidays

 

Atlanta Home & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays Show House & Marketplace is a yearly event benifting the Southeastern Horticultural Society's Children's Learning Gardens and Farms.  Formerly known as the Christmas House, the show house is in Atlanta tradition running from November 19th to December 7th and is open Wednesdays to Sundays.      

 

Our design for the main level covered veranda for the Atlanta Home & Lifestyles Holiday house is complete and we are thrilled with the result.   Tickets to tour the house can be purchased at the Holiday Home website here.  This year's home is located at 2865 Habersham Road and sits atop a hill in one of Atlanta's most desired residential areas.  

 

We were asked to design the space for the main level back veranda and jumped at the chance to participate in such a wonderful Atlanta holiday tradition. Our inspiration for this years Holiday show house started with the amazing Beacon Hill Chinoiserie print Hidden Temple in the indigo color way.  Our desire was to have a mixture of textures with a blue and white color palate.  Hidden Temple was perfect for the starting point. 

 

 

Our goal for the design was to create a "Classic Southern" veranda.  By taking the inspiration fabric and adding in traditional blue and white Asian exports mixed with textured rattan and wooden pieces we achieved the perfect timeless balance of new and old.  Our oversized white lacquered mirror over the mantle makes the fireplace the focal point in the room.  We created two living spaces; a comfortable seating area in front of the rock fireplace and an outdoor dining and entertaining area complete with a vintage table and faux bamboo dining chairs.  

 

   

 

Our table scape includes a mixture of new and antique dinner featuring antique Mottahedah Blue Canton salad and bread plates, Mottahedah Blue Dragon dinner plates and Ralph Lauren soup bowls in the classic Glen Plaid pattern.   

 

 

 

Avala International was kind enough to loan us most of the blue and white export porcelain pieces in the space.  They have an amazing collection of historic patterns and their pieces are the "good" blue and white.  

 

Currey & Company is one of the top leading lighting lines in the market.  They were so generous to loan us several pieces, the sofa end tables from their Faux Bois outdoor collection and a pair of the Palm Beach chic rope style lanterns to be placed on each end of the covered veranda.

We also partnered with Cotton and Quill using 4 of their Terrace Collection ShiShi foo dog print pillows in the Midnight color way.  These 22 inch pillows add such a fun and fresh element to the space.

 

 

Surya loaned us this amazing Pazar rug in Navy which provides the perfect softness to the back veranda.

These custom calligrahied menus were made for us by our dear friend, the incredibly talented Natalie Chang.  The navy and gold along with the small lion head knockers embodies our exact desire when we designed this space.  They are truly "Classic Southern".

 

 

Come and see our space along with the rest of the home starting on November 19th.  Each room is so well done and represents Atlanta at the Holidays.  

 

We are in great company at this year's Holiday show house ~

Thibaut Fabrics ~ Color & Pattern Bliss

Thibaut is known for their amazing colors and over the top Chinoserie patterns. Whether you chose a tradition or transitional pattern, fabric or wallpaper you simply can not go wrong with Thibaut.  

 

 

 

My favorite place I have used Thibaut is the master suite at our Foxwoods home.  I love the mixture of fabrics and the room would not be the same without the South Seas green fabric!

 

We are using Thibaut once again in our space at the CODARUS showroom at this year's #HPMKT.  I can't reveal the entire space yet, but here are some teasers for you ~

 

 

 

 

Think orange, grey and turquoise for days!

 

If you are planning a visit to #HPMKT come see us!

And as always, go big or go home!
