Growing up with an architect, after church it wasn’t uncommon to take a leisurely drive through some of Atlanta’s historic neighborhoods. I grew to appreciate the exteriors, but always wanted a peek beyond the curtained windows. If you are also yearning for a vantage point beyond the car window, stop by the site of the 2014 Atlanta Symphony Decorators’ Show House and Gardens.
A week ago, I got a first look into the Palazzo Rosa, a 1920’s Italian Baroque-style home with all the charm of an Italian villa you would assume it came with a waterway and gondola. Build by three of Georgia’s greatest early 20th Century architects, Neel Reid, Hal Hentz, and Philip Shutze, this home is now considered a modern classic due to innovative geo-thermal heating and cooling systems and other new millennium technology.
This year over 30 of the Southeast’s top interior designers put on the ritz (and lots of glitz) into every square foot of this home all to benefit the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra its Education and Community Engagement Programs. Inspiration abounds at every corner.
Here’s a peek, but you’ve got to see this home for yourself:
