Feature Friday: Southeastern Designer Showhouse Atlanta 2017

Happy Friday!  I’ve got a pretty exciting and busy weekend going, with speaking at the Pinner’s Conference today and then heading to High Point, NC tomorrow for the big furniture market and the Design Bloggers tour.  I can’t wait to experience it all and of course, I’ll be sharing all the beautiful things I see in NC when I return, so stay tuned for lots of inspiration from the market!

Every Spring Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles magazine hosts the Southeastern Designer Showhouse here in Atlanta and it’s always in a very upscale part of town like Buckhead.  Once again, I got an invitation for a preview of the house and it’s always a spring treat for me to get to see it all in person and photograph it to share with all of you!  If you’re in the area, you can get tickets at the link above and tickets are $25.

This year’s home tour, benefitting the Atlanta History Center, was originally designed by renowned Atlanta classical architect, James Mean, built in 1961 and recently went through a huge renovation as part of this project. The new construction added a family wing, master wing, a porch wing with infinity pool, and an upstairs laundry, 3 car garage, and terrace level with a wine cellar, tasting room, exercise room and game room.

Wow, did you get all that!  Yep, this is some kind of house!

I love the classical architecture of this stately brick home.

Seeing all the additions inside was really an amazing sight to see, with all the wings and additions. It’s one big house!

The entry maintains the original character and integrity of this stately home.  I love these black and white marble floors.  I’m not going to talk all the way through, but enjoy the tour and I’ll share as many of the designers as I can possibly share.  I took pics along the way of each room and their designer signs, but I might have missed a couple.

You can see more about the house and the entire list of designers over on Alanta Homes and Lifestyles showhouse page.

    The ladies office, and the closet! Beautiful!

  2. Barbara Hunnicutt Moore says

    sheesh. Their show homes never disappoint. I liked the breakfast banquet the best. hard to imagine living in something like this. beautiful to look at, though – that’s for sure.

  3. Jean from Georgia says

    The cute ladies office. Adorable.

  4. Wow, words fail me. This is beyond gorgeous. One thing I puzzled over–the mirrors on the side of the island in the dressing room. Are those meant to be functional? For checking your shoes? your hemline? There are long mirrors in the room, so just for decor?

  5. one of the nicest posts of decorating worth looking at, I’d say! thank you

  6. Thanks for sharing pictures of our Mudroom, Rhoda, as we loved taking part in this fundraiser. Hate I missed you when you toured, but hopefully I will see you son. Have a great weekend- Dana Wolter

    My favorite was the emerald green couch. That really caught my eye. Gorgeous house and grounds.
