In November, I did a post on the art of the Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Christmas Showhouse. This showhouse is usually for sale, and more often than not the house is sold while the showhouse is in progress. Perhaps a sign of the times, the home from the recent showhouse has not sold yet, although it is quite a beautiful house. The real estate listing has some great pictures on it, and I thought you might enjoy them too!
The house was designed by Bill Harrison of Harrison Design Associates, one of the premier architectural firms in town. It is described as a Georgian style house, and sits on a 1.6 acre lot in a prime area of Buckhead.
The foyer was designed by Robert Brown, who used art from the Emily Amy Gallery. During the Christmas showhouse, the staircase had fresh garland, and a huge chandelier was in the foyer, made by Niermann Weeks. Looking through to the back of the house, the dramatic living room by Suzanne Kasler can be seen. Surprisingly, there were no close up pictures of the living room in the real estate listing. I wonder whether the chandelier in the living room comes with the house; it is made by Therien, and was a focal point of the room.
A different view of the entry hall, showing the dining room. I really liked the floor plan of this house. Beyond the staircase, in the hall to the right, was a big bar that had easy access to the living room and the dining room. This house would work beautifully for entertaining.
To the left of the entry is the sitting room, designed by Stan Topol. It features a beautiful chandelier by Dessin Fournir.
The kitchen, which has a beautiful countertop made of marble. The sink was also made of the same material as the countertop. The kitchen design was by Design Galleria.
Another view of the kitchen, which opens to the keeping room.
A closer view of the keeping room and the breakfast room. Gretchen Gilstrap Edwards designed the keeping room, and Liz Williams (alas, no website) designed the breakfast room. I have heard that they coordinated with each other on the color scheme to keep the rooms in sync. Williams used Niermann Weeks' Mizner lantern, which is one of my favorite lanterns. Although it is hard to see in this picture, the ceiling is painted a very pale blue/green. The walls in this room are Benjamin Moore linen white, and the ceiling is Sherwin Williams sea salt.
A closer view of the breakfast room (my favorite room of the house). Although it is hard to see here, the curtains have a trim with pearl buttons on it. Williams used Niermann Weeks' Mizner lanterns, one of my favorites.
The master bathroom. I love the soft drape of the window treatment in this bathroom.
I thought the house flowed beautifully considering that 20 different designers were involved in the house. My favorite room was the keeping room and breakfast room, mainly because I loved the architecture and color scheme. So, what do you think? The house can be yours for $4.75 million! Do you have a favorite room? I only showed my favorite rooms, but the official listing has some more.
