THE NEXT COOL THING-Choosing the Furnishings

THE NEXT COOL THING-Choosing the Furnishings

February 17, 2011 | Barbara's Blog

The Next Cool ThingAs the industry event, THE NEXT COOL THING, draws near many have asked how I decided on the furnishings and décor for the modern space within the “Gone With the Wind” exhibit.  

The film will always be remembered for its spectacular color schemes and set design. It will always be remembered as one of the greatest and most elaborately made movies of all time. For that reason it was a daunting task to try and create a space inspired by such a grand film.

As you know, our side of the exhibit will be a 2011 version of the interior of Twelve Oaks Plantation. It is our job to show guests what it would look like today and we even wanted to go one step further, showcasing an ultra modern design.

The selection of furnishings was not always simple, but we had great help. We just “channeled Scarlett” and picked the pieces that we felt she would like. I know you are wondering what “she” helped us pick out and what the end result looks like. The result is a sleek contemporary space that you will just  have to see for yourself. 

Visit to purchase tickets. I look forward to seeing you there!
