One of the nice things about living in Atlanta is all of the wonderful opportunities to learn. This past Thursday the Ainsworth-Noah showroom at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center hosted Suzanne Tucker
who is said to be one of the top 100 designers in the world,
to talk about her design style, much of what is featured in her latest book...
She has a love of architecture and rich warm tones
along with pieces of substance
I love that screen
and beautiful textiles.
She shared her love of wallpaper and and expressed that she saw it no less difficult to update than paint!
I suppose when someone other than oneself is removing it, that is probably true!
This bathtub is carved from a solid piece of marble that was installed before the walls!
Suzanne said she loves 'over the top' powder rooms and thinks that will be her next book. She has a few in this book.
She has her own line of textiles
and on the horizon is dish ware.
The Ainsworth-Noah showroom is beautiful and by itself could complete a job.
This is a beautiful fireplace screen.
designed by Sidney Portier's wife Caternia
and aisles and aisles of scrumptious textiles.
I am a geek you know?!
A-N had a most delicious lunch for us all.
Then to my shock and horror I watched designers put their plates and glasses on all of the beautiful furniture pieces around the showroom. Where are people's manners? I'll bet there were some circles on the furniture, but I digress.
It was a lovely afternoon and I enjoyed Suzanne so much, a delightful woman. One could only wish for a clientele such as hers with seemingly no budgets!
Another showroom for another day...Jerry Pair.
So many lovelies, this was their window and again I was struck by the textiles!
I was so surprised to receive this from Suzanne this evening...
