The 2017 Southeastern Showhouse

The Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Magazine showhouse is starting up soon and I did a little digging to see what I could find as far as sneak peeks! The house is in Buckhead's Kingswood neighborhood, a swanky enclave within a suburb within a suburb of Atlanta.
The house was for sale not long ago, purchased in March of 2016. Reading the official showhouse site, the new owner may have added onto this already very large home designed by noted Atlanta architect James Means. They've already started working on updating the front a little bit, as you can see here:

Everything is getting a fresh coat of white paint. Going inside now, here's what it looked like when it was for sale:

 Tammy Connor, who is amazing, has the dining room, and her sneak peek was jaw dropping:

I mean, WOW. WOW! I'm so excited to see what this room looks like all finished!
Lauren DeLoach has both the kitchen and breakfast rooms, with help from Design Galleria Kitchen and Bath. She's posted a few sneak peeks at her progress:

That's VCT tile!!! I love how she created this check pattern on the floor.

The designer for this space is Jennifer Ferguson, and she shared a sneak peek of the space during install on her instagram.

Looks like everything got a coat of white paint! 

Chad James, one of my favorite designers in Nashville, has the library, and I can't wait to see what he does with the space. He gave this sneak peek on Instagram:

Tons of books being spray painted a matte dove gray. I wonder what he has in store for the rest of the space? 
The house opens for tours on April 20th, and I'm sure there are a lot of last minute touches going on this week before the magazine goes in for pre-show photos! I'm most excited about seeing what Tammy Connor does with that dining room, I love the direction she's headed. Also, that living room has such amazing bones, it will be interesting to see what Stan Topol and his team do with it.

And just a quick reminder that today is the last day to shop Cross Bottle Guy with FREE SHIPPING! There are still a few bottles left from the 25 bottle lot we unveiled this week. Next week we will have 15 more beautiful bottles to add to the site, still in time to grab for Easter!

I LOVE this little cobalt blue bottle! The German octagonal crystals are really brilliant! Take a look at what's left and grab one for your or a friend! Happy Weekend! I'll catch up with you on Monday! 


  1. be sure to post the final photos. now i'm really interested myself!!!

  2. Artie,
    So glad Stan got the living room- as far as I'm concerned, he's the top designer in Atlanta, he was the chairman of the Interior design dept at Art Inst of Atlanta when I attended- many years ago- and he was a protege' in the 1960's of famed Billy Baldwin! He also did the home of Simone and Scott Lutgert, here in Naples, a true tour de force as seen in Veranda!
    Enjoyed your post today!

  3. Loved your sleuthing to put this post together:) Can't wait to see the end results. xxj.
