Yesterday, I came across a tour of the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles’ 2017 Southeastern Designer Showhouse, which is a historic James Means designed home in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia. Of all the designer showhouses I have seen this year, this one is by far my favorite. Each room in the historic brick estate is decorated by a different interior designer from the Southeast. The renovation of the home was completed by architect Yong Pak and builder Michael Ladisic.
The exterior of the home:
Today, I am going to share with you the rooms that I like best from the designer showhouse. Each of these favorite rooms of mine happens to be blue (surprise, surprise!), in each case, shades of pale blue that create a feeling of tranquility, femininity and elegance.
The blue, brass, and white kitchen was designed by Matthew Quinn of Design Galleria Kitchen and Bath Studio. The cabinets are painted Light Blue by Farrow & Ball. The combination of the white marble, the light blue cabinets, and the brass fixtures and hood is a winner in my book! The kitchen is both modern and timeless.
The breakfast area, designed by Lauren DeLoach, is my favorite space in the house. The designer coordinated the breakfast area with the kitchen, painting the shiplap walls and built-ins a muted version of the blue color used for the kitchen cabinets. The banquette is upholstered in a buffalo check by Cowtan & Tout and has an ivory leather seat. The room has lovely french doors that open to the beautifully landscaped grounds.
A pretty set of creamware is on display in the built-ins:
The family room, designed by Phoebe Howard, coordinates wonderfully with the nearby kitchen and breakfast area:
The master bedroom designed by Tristan Harstan is an elegant and peaceful refuge. The chinoiserie wall panels by de Gurney and the pale blue grasscloth wall coverings set the tone for this serene and feminine space:
The infinity pool is something special, so I need to show you that too!
The home is no longer open for tours. If you would like to see more of it, visit Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles.
