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.

Wasn’t that an outstanding tour of a magnificent house? I thought this one was very well designed, elegant and pretty.
I’ll be back next Friday with Part 2 of the Southeastern Designer Showhouse, so don’t miss that! There are lots more spaces to see!
Judy Clark says
The ladies office, and the closet! Beautiful!
My favorite room!
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.
Jean from Georgia says
The cute ladies office. Adorable.
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?
one of the nicest posts of decorating worth looking at, I’d say! thank you
Dana Wolter says
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
Awesome indeed! Love the detail of those scrowls at the bottom of staircase and the contrast of black/white….very creative! Thank you, as always, in sharing your journeys with us!
Pam Richardson says
Rhoda, this show house certainly did not disappoint! Stunning! I loved all the outdoor areas! Thanks so much for the eye-candy this morning!
Audra Taliaferro says
Wow! Stunning house! Love the ladies office and all the outdoor spaces!
Becky in 'Bama says
Just beautiful and so charming. What caught my eye – all the REAL artwork. Stunning. Thanks for sharing.
Anise Butler says
My favorite was the emerald green couch. That really caught my eye. Gorgeous house and grounds.
I’ll take the garage apartment.
Judy Westegaard- Jenkins says
As soon as I win the lottery, I will be moving in!
Ricardo Alvarez says
I would like to show this he to my wife. How can I get availability?
Ricardo, if you click the link I provided you can find out more about tickets. I think the showhouse ends this weekend.
I would like to know where to purchase the rug in the master bedroom. The blue toned one.
Deb G says
Loved the kitchen sink window and mosaic brick floor in the mudroom. That’s about it. No sense of flow (I guess because of the different designers) and horrible color and design choices for this home. I always LOVED touring Callanwolde because the designers stayed true to the essence of the home. I don’t know what these designers were trying to say but, for me, it’s a total miss. Sorry. I know that they were/are renowned in your parts.
