Décor Inspiration | Designer Showhouse & Gardens, Atlanta

The very first Southeastern Designer Showhouse & Gardens presented by Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles last year brought together a coterie of design stars from the region to re-imagine a 28,000 square foot English manor-style Buckhead mansion. The concept of a showhouse like this, where a host of different designers each put their mark on different rooms is a phenomenon that is better known in the US than in Europe. And what a great way for designers to showcase new ideas and for guests and viewers to gain a myriad of inspirational ideas.

In this showhouse, there are ladylike parlour spaces and masculine bathrooms, a soaring white panelled hallway and the most elegant butler’s pantry you’re ever likely to see. Each space is different, which keeps the viewer delighted and surprised throughout, and with inspiration ranging from exotic cultures of the east to Gloria Vanderbilt, you can only imagine the design journey you are about to take. So click through here to enjoy our favourite rooms from this show-stopping house . . . Louise

Interiors Editor, Edinburgh

Louise Keane grew up beside the sea in Dublin, inspiring a life-long love of the coast. She studied French and History of Art & Architecture in Trinity College in Dublin before moving to London to work first in publishing and then in Marketing & PR. After a move to Edinburgh, she decided to heed a creative urge which had been tugging at her sleeve for a number of years, and she retrained as an interior designer. While studying interior design, Louise discovered a love of pen and ink with watercolour illustration, which she now does alongside her interior design work. Louise runs her interior design company, Amalfi White Living, which offers her clients a fresh, elegant style, mixing vintage and modern pieces for a luxurious yet relaxed look. She dreams of renovating a white house by the sea.

    Hi! Do you know the source for the chandelier in the photo of the room decorated by Rivers Spencer? I love it!!!
    Thank you!

    • Hi Leslie – it is a great room isn’t it? According to the source details in Atlanta Homes & Gardens, all the lighting that Rivers Spencer used in her room came from Circa Lighting. I hope that helps! Louise
