Feature Friday: AHL Southeastern Showhouse 2019

In Atlanta, we have some great show houses and the Southeastern Designer Showhouse is always a treat to see. The showhouse is open from May 9th through June 2 and is open for tours from Thursday – Saturday, 10 AM to 4 PM and Sunday 1-4 PM. If you get a chance to go, I would encourage you to do so, it’s beautiful!

The media sponsor is Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles magazine and they invited us to the preview.

Located on Garmon Road off Mt. Paran Road, the home is a new build and presents a beautiful exterior, built by Robert Donner, Southern Gentry Homes. Architect: Dietrich Logan, Logan Design Group.

Below are pics I took of the house as I visited and toured. There was so much beauty to see in this house, I really loved a lot of it. Two things I noticed on the showhouse. Wallpaper is back in a big way, but you probably already know that. And shiplap is now being used in high end homes as accents too.

The entire upstairs of this house was shiplapped and it was pretty. I do like shiplap too, but it has certainly gone mainstream. In this house, it looked very upscale and definitely added architectural interest.

You should be able to tell most of these spaces that are mentioned above, but I didn’t make detailed notes on each picture I took.

This master bedroom shown above was probably my favorite space in the house. I took lots of pics of Will Huff and Heather Dewberry’s space. One other note, all the spaces weren’t finished when we toured so I had to shoot around that too.

Wasn’t this a gorgeous traditional bedroom? I loved the colors, the fabrics and everything about it, especially that bamboo-like bed.

Notice the shiplap going upstairs.

The ceilings were very unique as well.

I loved this art work!

This bedroom by Honey Collins was also very pretty and serene.

This stairwell art caught my eye and someone there who was finishing up the space by Stephanie Jarvis, the designer, said that these pencil drawings of trees were done by a young male artist who did them all with a No. 2 pencil. And each of the tree drawings had a Bible verse inside the drawings.

Update! I looked up the designer on Instagram and she has a picture posted of the art. The artist is Richard Bowers from Nashville, art available from Nashville Artist Collective. Richard is also on Instagram, so I’m linking him too. I found their page from Nashville Art Collective with his art, so you can click here to see a few of his tree drawings.

They looked so good in this stairwell!

This was the coffee table in Phoebe Howard’s great room.

Owners veranda by Huff Harrington, I think.

I loved getting to meet Alabama designer, Ashley Gilbreath. She designed an upstairs bedroom and bathroom and it was gorgeous. I’ve admired her work for a long time and have never crossed paths with her until now. We also have a mutual friend in common, Layla with The Lettered Cottage. So it was so fun to get to meet her!

    Hi Rhoda,

    That is a beautiful house. They incorporated that shiplap so well I am not sure that I would have seen that if you had not mentioned it.

    Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful Atlanta home.

  2. That is a beautifully designed home. Please pass on the information on your blog about the tree #2 pencils with Bible verses when you track it down.

  3. Really beautifully done, one of the best I have seen in a long time! Do you know the artist of the two landscapes you commented on?

    • HI, Gayle, I don’t know but if you click that Artist Collective you might find some information there. All the art came from there, I think.

  4. Audra Taliaferro says

    Wow at the master bedroom! My favorite room in the house!

  5. The stairwell is very striking, the art is amazing,and I love the shiplap with the black iron railing. The laundry room is my favorite. Thank you Rhoda for always bringing your readers such beautiful homes.

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it, Sue! It’s fun to get to see these homes and share them with all of you.

  6. Lynne Beattie says

    Not my style – like all show houses a little over the top. That said, some really interesting elements. Loved the green bedroom and the back patio area.

  7. Gorgeous! All of it! The way different styles are blended from formal to casual to traditional to modern is amazing!

  8. KKAbsherWrites says

    Heather Dewberry and I are childhood friends. She’s always had great style. I’ve never seen a design of theirs that I don’t love. ❤️ What a great tour. Thanks for sharing!
