Sterling Hall Showhouse – Atlanta

December 14, 2010

We just completed installation of Sterling Hall, a truly magnificent home on West Paces Ferry Road in Atlanta.  If you like showcase homes, you’ll need to make sure and visit this one.  renowned designer, Shane Meder ,of Blacksheep Interiors, led his design team in dressing this home top to bottom.  We were honored to be chosen to collaborate with Blacksheep Interiors and act as a  presenting sponsor by donating the majority of the window treatment fabrication.  Oh yes, and one other thing, we completed drapery and treatments throughout this 20,000 square foot home in three weeks!

The entire home was put together at an astounding speed as the home was built in ten months and all the interiors loaded a three-day period.  The team behind Sterling Hall is notable to say the least.  Owner David Karangu commissioned  Harrison Design Associates to design the home and Steven West Custom homes to build.   Sterling Hall has superior finishes and architectural details throughout.  From the intricate mill work in all the main floor rooms, to gold leaf finishes and 24 karat gold fixtures in the kitchen, there are details that take more than one trip to appreciate. The home is open for tour and all ticket proceeds benefit Children’s Healthcare.

In the grand dining room, we used Drape98 custom hardware with a gilding on red finish.  The brackets were specially made to fit  into a tight mounting space and the panel lengths had to be spot on.  Shane chose our 1 1/4″ diameter rods which reads the perfect weight among such a grand scale window and the flowing silk panels fabricated in a formal goblet pleat helped accentuate the grandeur of this palatial room.

Another featured area is the master bedroom.  Stunning, warm and inviting, Blacksheep had us custom fabricate soft blue panels throughout and float double-sided drapery to flank the recessed bed area.  Our hardware was customized to finish in a silver wash that collaborated with the large wall of mirrors and magnificent crystal chandelier.

Note the master bed area- where we flanked the bed windows and recessed area with soft euro panels.  The suspended drapes are double-faced – one type of fabric inside  and a coordinating fabric out towards the room.

There’s more to this house than one blog can mention.  The entire upstairs and terrace level used our offered linens and our custom hardware.  One of my favorite rooms is the downstairs “Ladies Lounge” which is just off the hair salon.  Shane describes it as “Sex in the City” meets “W” Hotel -a  fitting description for such a chic, inviting space.  We created traditional pleated panels with our offered Ivory linen as the main fabric and taupe banding on the leading edges.  We also outfitted roman shades to match on the french doors leading to a luxurious outdoor spa.

And checkout the Terrace Tea/Media space.  We flanked the patio doors (leading to a fabulous pool deck) with our Inca Linen on our bronze hardware projecting out 7″ to clear the massive, stone door casings.  There was nothing small scale about this home!
