Spring is definitely show house season and there are several underway in the next few weeks. The Southeastern Designer Showhouse recently opened in Atlanta and features a slew of talented designers including Robert Brown, Barbara Westbrook, Andrew Brown, Phoebe Howard, and Suzanne Kasler among others. Suzanne Kasler is a designer I have admired for many years. Her work is typically more traditional, but she does many styles so very well, always with her distinct European-inspired flair. Regardless of the inspiration for any specific project she has designed, those of us who love her work can always count on it to be elegant, timeless, and pretty. Drawing inspiration from the worlds of fashion, architecture, interiors, and art, Suzanne carefully crafts a unique vision for each of her clients and encourages them to incorporate their personal collections with new, bespoke pieces created especially for them.
Naturally, one of my favorite space of the ones I have seen from the Southeastern Designers Showhouse is the stunning dining room designed by Suzanne. Featuring an assortment of classic furniture from her collection for Hickory Chair, the show-stopping room makes quite a statement with its lacquered walls and pale blue ceiling. It feels like a jewel box of a room. The lacquer application– a true work of art– was executed by Desiree Harper and Simon Streak of Struttura, who shared these beautiful images of Suzanne’s glamorous dining room on Instagram.
P.S. For anyone viewing La Dolce Vita on a mobile device, such as an iPhone, iPad, or Tablet, you have a couple of viewing options. Our new, mobile-friendly format is easier to search and scroll through, but I know some of you miss the old format. If you scroll to the bottom of the website on your mobile device, you’ll see two options: Mobile and Desktop. If you prefer the old version, simply select Desktop and the blog will appear the same as it does on your desktop computer. Thank you for the feedback!
