Known to Old Schoolers as the “Pink Palace” for its exterior color, the 16,000-square-foot Italian Baroque-style home was designed by Neel Reid, Hal Hentz and Philip Shutze with completion in the 1920s. The designers took their inspiration from a small building in Venice, Italy, named the Scuola dei Tiraoro e Battiloro.
“It is one of the most beautifully crafted homes in Atlanta. The proportions, the architecture and the grounds are a haven for any creative soul to build a masterpiece,” said Brooke Brantley Merrill, the 2014 Decorators’ Show House Chair.

The home has gone through many lives over the past few years as we told you in our previous coverage of the home, and it is for sale should you have a cool $7 million – well under what we estimate the home to be worth especially now that is has been outfitted with geo-thermal heating and cooling.
“The public loves to see how the modern family would use this home today, which helped myself and others involved with the selection make a unanimous decision to bring Palazzo Rosa back for the third time,” said Merrill.
Traci Rhoads of T R I Traci Rhoads Interiors, LLC said that the home’s abundance of sunlight inspired her design in the master bedroom.
“The one element that I feel is most important in a space has to be light,” said Rhoads. “Light brings warmth and life as it moves across the walls during the course of the day.”
Other designers found themselves charmed by the home’s Old World and European feel. For example, the majestic resort town of Cap Ferrat provided inspiration for Timothy Corrigan of Timothy Corrigan, Inc. This inspiration can be seen in the family living room, which is just off the swimming pool.
