The Atlanta Symphony Associates, the fundraising arm of the Midtown-based orchestra, Thursday announced the location of its 44th annual Decorators’ Show House & Gardens.

Palazzo Rosa, a Buckhead home also known as the Pink Palace, its English translation, will be on display April 26 through May 18. At the show house, metro Atlanta’s top interior designers will design each room in their own way, and it will be open to the public for tours.

“The public loves to see how the modern family would use this home today, which helped myself and others in-volved with the selection make a unanimous decision to bring Palazzo Rosa back for the third time,” said Brooke Brantley Merrill, the 2014 show house chairwoman.

Originally designed in the Italian Baroque style by three Georgian architects — Neel Reid, Hal Hentz and Philip Shutze — the home is now considered a “green” house with an innovative geothermal heating and cooling system. Renovations were completed without sacrificing any of the home’s charm and patina. With technology from the new millennium and original tapestries from the early 20th century, the Palazzo Rosa will appeal to a wide range of home-owners, renters or designers looking for inspiration.

“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,” Merrill said. “I encourage everyone to make plans to visit this year’s show house. The experience will be one you don’t want to miss.”

All proceeds from the show house tour benefit the orchestra and its education and community engagement initiatives. Tickets are $25 if purchased by April 25 and $30 afterward. The Pink Palace is located at 541 W. Paces Ferry Road.
